Not the Horse

Rothschild Canticles (in Latin)

Daily Create 1574. 500 years ago they didn’t have Craigslist or Kijiji so you had to wander down the streets hollering that you had something for sale. One day young Craig was trying to sell or trade his burlap sack to try to get a bite to eat. But local grump Leon wanted the boy to keep it down so he yelled to the boy ‘Keep it down no one wants to buy your horse!’ And Craig said ‘My horse is not for sale, it’s my burlap sack that is for sale good sir!’ And went on his way.

There just happened to be an artist taking a painting of the scene at the time so this seemingly uneventful event is recorded for history.
