And Your Point Is?

The latest issue of Harper's magazine has an article by Tom Bissell on the work of Werner Herzog in which he recounts how Herzog went in search of the smallest horse in the world and the largest rooster in the world, his plan being to seat a midget on the back of the horse and have the rooster chase it round a sequoia tree. For a film, obviously, not for his own personal entertainment.

The owner of the horse refused, arguing that it would make the horse look stupid.
