Limbaugh's Burrowing Lesbians

Today, Rush Limbaugh said, “I never before in my life knew that lesbians wanted to be farmers. I never knew that lesbians wanted to get behind the horse and the plow and start burrowing.”

So, he thinks that modern farming involves horses and plows. And these are not just any horses and lesbians—they're burrowing horses and lesbians—for those crops that don't take to sunshine. Here's a photo of one of the horses coming up from a hard day of burrowing.

Like Trump, Limbaugh is confused about words. Burrowing refers to an animal that makes holes or tunnels, typically for use as a dwelling. Farmers FURROW the soil by making ruts or grooves in the ground, using a tractor.

2020 update: It's hard-hitting news reporting like this that earned Limbaugh the Medal of Freedom award from the far more lexically-challenged Donald Trump.
