Furthermore,

To remain on the subject of titles, give it ANY other title, and the sentence does not make sense.

"I helped my Mister Miyagi off a horse."
"I helped my Lord Von Strauss off a horse"
"I helped my Chief Wiggum off a horse"

Just seems out of place for title, as he is referring to a possession, thus, Uncle, is something that belongs to him, and is not attached to Jack, and therefore NOT capitalized.

I think I just answered my question.

Okay, but in the given context, the word uncle is not used as a title, but as an adjective.

Had he said "I helped Uncle Jack, off a horse" the it would have been his title.

But switch out what was said and it makes no sense. The way it is worded does not necessitate the Uncle to be capitalized.

The sentence, as it stands, insinuates that the Uncle Jack is his. Try the trick of making the word Uncle Jack into one word (Unclejack), with no pause, since they are together, are spoken together "Hey how are things Unclejack?". Whereas "uncle Jack", has a pause. "My uncle Jack is so fat he can't get off a horse".

The sentence does not refer to the title of Uncle Jack, but it does qualify the proper noun Jack as being "My" uncle.

I may be french, but I am usually very good at grammar, especially in English (easier language), and this does not seem right to me...

Grammar, part of it is knowing how to convey your point properly. TO avoid future confusion: "Help your Uncle Jack off OF a horse." that is all.

Animal husbandry is NASTY no matter how you say it. I'd rather think that my meats came from a lab. (no pun intended)

If Jack helped you off your horse would you help Jack masturbate his horse? -er, I mean give Jack's horse a handjob? Aw drat I'm bad at jokes.

"One day, Uncle Jack, and I decided to jack off a horse."

Who is this One day who helped you and your Uncle Jack? Or was it a single, unnamed day that is helping you two? Or possibly you added one too many commas.

Commas are important too. I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse.

On the 'z' versus 's' thing in words such as capitalize / capitalise, ('z' being the american version) here is a rather boring or rather interesting book depending on what you like heh!

When the word is used before a proper name as part of the title, it's capitalized. When it's on it's own, it's not capitalized.

As in: I have an uncle. His name is Jack. One day, Uncle Jack, and I decided to jack off a horse.

...um, yes, Batmanners...it is necessary to capitalize the "uncle" in "Uncle Jack", since it's a proper title.
