    I like the "gee" and "Haw" - somebody who actually drove a pony IRL!

    OMG Mike that is such a blast form the past. I can remember my older brother and wacky sisters dancing around to this and thinking, "they really think they look cool".

    After watching this video everyone needs to watch the movie, "Reefer Madness". Talk about hysterical.

    My senior class in high school had to watch "Reefer Madness " during class one day .........

    And.. this was back in the day when legal drinking age was 18, everyone's graduation parties were all about getting hammered and the 2 martini lunch was common.

    We had to watch it in 6th grade. I was in 6th grade in 1968 I think. Even then we knew it was propaganda. Our teacher presented it to us as a warning about propaganda. In fact, after the movie, we discussed propaganda, and our assignment was to read 1984. I did my book report on that. That was creepy.

    Back then, I thought the pony was stupid. At our parties, we did the swim, and, the go-go.

    They've got "Gee" and "haw" backwards, at least the way we use driving commands up here.
