I obtest about that horse in the window…

While in a nearby town, we had to take a “double take” when we seen this horse in the window on the 2nd floor!
I heard an elderly couple walk past us saying, “I obtest and strongly recommend that they remove that horse at once!” I’m not sure if they knew that it wasn’t a REAL horse, or not.

obtest \ ob-TEST \ verb:
1. To supplicate earnestly; beseech.
2. To invoke as witness.
3. To protest.
4. To make supplication; beseech.

Origin: Obtest comes from the Latin roots ob- , a prefix meaning “toward”, and the root test , meaning “witness.”
