Chuck Swindoll recalls a story about his uncle Zeke. It goes something like this;

Uncle Zeke walked into the shop, saw the mangled shoe, and before the blacksmith could say anything, uncle Zeke picked it up. Immediately, he dropped it like a...well, like it was very hot.
The blacksmith looked over his glasses at uncle Zeke. 'Hot?'
Uncle Zeke replied, 'No....it just don't take me long to look at a horseshoe.'
