Antecipando o que poderá ser um dos mais absurdos resultados eleitorais da democracia portuguesa, deixo aquele que poderá um dos mais absurdos diálogos na história do cinema Hollywoodesco. Passa-se no filme Crimson Tide, sendo Gene Hackman e Denzel Washington os protagonistas da fita e desta cena. Cá vai:
Capt. Ramsey: Speaking of horses, did you ever see those Lipizzaner stallions?
Capt. Ramsey: From Portugal. The Lipizzaner stallions. The most highly trained horses in the world. They're all white?
Hunter: Yes, sir.
Capt. Ramsey: "Yes, sir", you're aware they're all white or "Yes, sir", you've seen them?
Hunter: Yes, sir, I've seen them. Yes, sir, I was aware that they're are all white. They are not from Portugal; they're from Spain and, at birth, they're not white; they're black. Sir.
Capt. Ramsey: I didn't know that. But they are from Portugal.
Capt. Ramsey: Some of the things they do, uh, defy belief. Their training program is simplicity itself. You just stick a cattle prod up their ass and you can get a horse to deal cards.
Capt. Ramsey: Simple matter of voltage.
A raça de cavalos Lipizzan é de origem eslovena, resultado do cruzamento de várias raças e do adestramento austríaco começado pelos Habsburgos.
