There was once a very smart horse. Anything that was shown it,
it mastered easily, until one day, its teachers tried to teach
it about rectanguar coordinates and it couldn't understand them.
All the horse's aquaintences and friends tried to figure out
what was the matter and couldn't. Then a new guy (what the heck,
a computer engineer) looked at the problem and said,

"Of course he can't do it. Why, you're putting Descartes before
the horse!"
