Why the Long Face?

I can't befriend a horse without thinking of the joke (and laughing, every time): "A horse walks into a bar, and the bartender says, 'Why the long face?'" Met this horse on today's early-morning walk. This horse's friend is wearing a fly mask to protect the tender eyes and ears it cannot protect on its own.

Some jokes never get old. One time a friend and I were arguing about nature and he passionately demanded, "Do you know the lifecycle of the cicada?" I replied, "No, but if you hum a few bars, I'll fake it," and that makes me laugh still.
