Old Dogs
« on: January 10, 2007, 09:15:37 PM »
A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in Africa, taking her
   faithful aged poodle named Cuddles, along for the company.

   One day the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long, Cuddles
   discovers that he's lost.. Wandering about, he notices a leopard heading
   rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.

   The old poodle thinks, "Oh, oh! I'm in deep doo-doo 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 poodle exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious
   leopar d! 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 poodle nearly had me!"

   Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby
   tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for
   protection from the leopard. So off he goes, but the old poodle sees him
   heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something
   must be up. The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans
   and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard.

   The young leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here,
   monkey, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving

   Now, the old poodle sees the leopard co ming with the monkey on his back
   and thinks, "What am I going to do now?", but instead of running, the dog
   sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them
   yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old poodle says.

   "Where's that damn monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another

   Moral of this story....

   Don't mess with old farts..age and treachery will always overcome youth
   and skill! Bullshit and brilliance only come with age and experience.

   I am in no way insinuating that any of you are old, some are just more
   youthfully challenged.
