Here’s the Original Source of the Idea That Sarah Jessica Parker Looks Like a Horse

Share on Facebook

If you’ve been around the internet for 10 minutes or more, you’ve probably seen a comparison of Sarah Jessica Parker to a horse.

Both horses and Parker may have somewhat longish facial features, but their (not-so-) striking resemblance isn’t actually the source of the meme. In fact, it comes from a scene in the 1994 Tim Burton movie Ed Wood

The guy behind the site Sarah Jessica Parker Looks Like a Horse should also be given credit for his part in this old meme. After seeing the above clip, his decision to post side-by-side pics of Parker and her equine lookalikes is what turned the supposed similarity into a full-on internet phenomenon.

So that’s where it all started. Why it continues is a totally separate issue…
