"Hay is for horses" có hay đồng âm với hey = cỏ khô để cho ngựa ăn -> cụm từ này nghĩa là câu trả lời hài hước, châm biếm để mỉa mai khi ai đó muốn thu hút sự chú ý của người khác bằng cách gọi 'hey'.

Ví dụ
Everytime we would say "hey!" as in protest (cuộc phản đối) or something, my grandfather would go "Hay is for horses, save it. You might marry a jackass" and I honestly think I will forever remember that.

"Hey," you greet somebody. "Hay is for horses," they respond, thinking they are the cleverest person in the whole wide world. Except now, you can finally tell them off, because The Hay Days, in Casper, Wyoming, proves that hay isn't just for horses anymore.

“What do you think they might eat?” Worley, who also teaches English as a second language in Gateway School District, asked. The students knew the answer to be grass and, as a few quoted (trích dẫn) the old saying: “Hay is for horses.”
