My then-teenaged brother Bill and some of his university friends were playing a game of Password, where you gave your partner a one-word clue to try and get them to say the Password. During one round, Bill's girlfriend Brenda was trying to get him to say "saddle". She said leather, but he guessed belt. Then their opponent said stirrups, and his teammate said saddle. Bill was disgusted, looked at Brenda and said, "Why didn't you just say horse?" "Well, she replied. "I figured if I said horse (hoarse), you'd probably say sore throat!"
