The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply. Your question was:

> My horse fell on me when we were getting ready for the 100 mile ride
> to McMurdo Sound, and now I am pinned underneath him. He won't move
> even if I yell and scream, which I have been doing for 6ix hours now.
> It is time to bring in the cavalry to help me get out from under him,
> and that's is why I am asking you. You won't laugh at me like penguins
> do.
> Please hurry. It is so cold!

And in response, thus spake the Oracle:

} I'm afraid that all the king's horses are no longer allowed to help
} people who've fallen and can't get up, ever since the infamous Humpty
} Dumpty incident. It turns out that horses can get really spooked when
} bits of eggshell get caught in their shoes.
} You owe the Oracle a yolk yoke.
