First lesson of 2012

Did we need more proof that I'm losing my neurons?

(Talking about Chinese New Year)
Friend (to Chinese Friend): 2012! Year of the dragon. 
Chinese Friend: Actually, water dragon. I was born in the year of the fire horse
Me: Ah! I didn't know you were born in the year of the dragon.

(After a few long seconds of Chinese Friend thinking about whether or not he would point out my stupidity ...)
Me: Oh wait. A fire horse is not a dragon.

(Slow clap)

(But honestly, isn't 'DRAGON' a better name for 'FIRE HORSE'?)

(Don't respond to that.)
