There was once a very smart horse.

Anything that was shown him, he mastered easily, until one day, his teachers tried to teach him about rectangular coordinates and he couldn't understand them. All the horse's acquaintances and friends tried to figure out what was the matter and couldn't.

Then a new guy looked at the problem and said, "Of course he can't do it. Why, you're putting Descartes before the horse!"
