Friday Funny (On Saturday)

Posted: November 7, 2009 in Uncategorized

A wealthy old gentleman decided to go on a hunting safari in Africa , taking his faithful, elderly dog Killer along for the company.

One day the old dog starts chasing rabbits and before long, discovers that he’s lost. Wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having him for lunch.

The old dog thinks, “Oh, oh! I’m in deep shit now!” Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap, the old dog exclaims loudly, “Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder, if there are any more around here?”

Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike. A look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. “Whew!”, says the leopard, “That was close! That old dog nearly had me!”

Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figured he could put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard. So, off he goes. The old dog, however, sawhim heading after the leopard with great speed, and figured that something must be up.

The monkey soon caught up with the leopard, spilled the beans and struck a deal for himself with the leopard.

The young leopard, furious at being made a fool of said, “Here, monkey, hop on my back and see what’s going to happen to that conniving canine!

Now, the old dog noticed the leopard coming with the monkey on his back and thouht, “What am I going to do now?”, but instead of running, the dog sat down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hadn’t seen them yet; when they were within earshot, the old dog said…

“Where’s that damn monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!

Moral of this story…
 

Don’t mess with the old dogs… age and skill will always overcome youth and treachery! “B.S.” and brilliance only come with age and experience.
