If Wishes Were Horses........

Does anyone reading this know how that ^ statement is supposed to end? I finally do, because I finally remembered to look it up. Apparently it is one of Joss Whedon's favorite sayings because it is referenced in both Firefly, by Jayne, and in Angel, by Spike (looks like wishes are horses today). Every time I've watched those episodes, which is quite a few times at this point, I've thought it sounded familiar and that I should know what the rest of it is. No one else seemed to know it though. I asked both of my parents and neither of them had ever heard it before. So now I'm wondering why I recognized it when other people didn't. I mean, I assume it's a fairly well known saying or else Joss Whedon wouldn't have referenced it without any context the way he, repeatedly, did. Right? Also, why does shit like this not bother other people. If I hadn't had any idea what that meant, it would have bugged me way more than it did. Do other people seriously just hear references in shows and movies that they totally don't understand and then just let it go? Because I don't do that. By the way, the end is ".....beggars would ride." Just so you know.
Only a few days left to vote.


  1. I totally could have answered this for you! LOL. But that is because I am a humongous nerd. I do love this saying.

    1. It is quite a good saying. I like it even better now that I know how it ends, hahah. I'm glad I'm not the only humongous nerd around :)
