I wonder…..

… do you know what the title refers to ?

I know of one story…

It involves a very bad night for Phil’s brother Johnny after he’d had food poisoning. In the morning, finally appearing from the bathroom, Johnny announces, "I feel like I’ve just released a soft horse."

I have no idea where I got the story and it could be part of the mythology that was Johnny Cunningham. But it makes for a great reel.
