    He’s a hoarse whisperer.

    Ding. Ding. Ding.

    We have a winner.

    Just a bad pun.

    Right. But why is the HORSE whispering?

    The horse is literally a ‘horse whisperer’…

    The horse is whispering because’s he’s a horse whisperer (that is, a whisperer who happens to be a horse).

    It’s easy to see how such an animal could make that mistake.

    All homonyms aside, the “horse whisperer” could refer to a person who whispers to horses, or a horse that happens to whisper. It’s kind of ambiguous that way.

    Just like the term “dog catcher” could refer to someone who apprehends dogs, or a player on an all-canine baseball team.

    The horse is whispering because it’s rude to talk in the theater, duh.

    J-L: A dog catcher could also be what they put on the front end of one of those pint-size trains you see at amusement parks.

    1998 called… and asked why it took 14 years for this feeble and corny joke to fully gel in Hilburn’s mind.

    “Awaiting moderation”? I am incapable of moderation! ;)

    It’s actually a little deeper than has been said. The horse happens to be horse as well, that’s why he was looking for an equine healer. So the horse horse was looking for a horse whisperer as opposed to a horse whisperer.

    Or it could be someone who sings humorous round songs about dogs.

    Yo Dawg, it’s like the movie is titled the Hoarse Whisperer and a horse whisperer is in the audience. . . .

    Double pun. The guy on screen is whispering because he’s hoarse, and in the audience is a horse whispering.

    Double the puns and still doesn’t rise to a groan.

    A hoarse horse is a horse, of course, of course.

    Obviously horses are polite. Haven’t you read Gulliver’s Travels?

    Q: What makes the hearse horse hoarse?

    A: The coffin.
