    Smile Ride the Homer horsey

    Episode:

    Homer, the father, asked his daughter Lisa to climb up on his knees.

    He said,"Come on, Lisa. Ride the Homer horsey! Giddyap. Whee!"

    Homer danced Lisa on his knees.

    Question:

    Should 'horsey' be placed after a noun, like the word 'incarnate', which is after the noun? eg. goddess incarnate

    Re: Ride the Homer horsey

    "horsey" = A game played with children in which the child sits astride an adult's leg, and the adult then moves the leg up and down to mimic a horse's movement. Children play horsey with all kinds of things: the arms of sofas, large dogs, low tree branches. Here it is Homer who is the horse.

    Hi Anglika,

    Thank you for your help. I got it.

    There's an ancient Chinese poem, which is very well-known in China, decribing puppy love of playing horsey with bamboo stick.
