Read on the wall of Philomina's Restaurant in Melaque Mexico during the mid '90's:

"Ysdrsomnyhorseaseshrendnohorses?"

Maybe it's subliminal.
The Pilot Horse means that the boat handles so bad that if it were a horse it would need shootin.
The Porkins motor runs like a Pig.

Maybe the Porkins has plenty of grunt!
I wouldn't want to be saddled with a pilot horse though........might end up in the horsepistol.

senormechanico . . .

. . . your post #7 caught my eye. It reads:

"Read on the wall of Philomina's Restaurant in Melaque Mexico during the mid '90's:

"Ysdrsomnyhorseaseshrendnohorses?"

Steve B."

I don't doubt that that is what was written on the wall in Philomina's, but I would bet that the writer was just putting his own spin on something he read elsewhere. I refer you to the excellent River-Horse, Across America by Boat, by William Least Heat-Moon, copyright 1999. In my soft-cover Penguin edition, from page 154, I quote the following:

VYISDER ZOMENIMOR
ORZIZZAZZIS,
ZANZERIS, ORZIZ.

It's a good question, wouldn't you agree?

Who comes up with this stuff?

I have seen a few of those crazy lines on signs and stuff. I just ignore them.

The way I first heard this one, Wilverine, is "I'd rather have a free bottle in front of me, than a pre-frontal lobotomy."
