Wacky Wednesday

Here's some humor to lighten the day...I received the following "story" in an email.  I don't know who wrote it originally so, sorry, I can't give credit to anyone.  But I thought it was funny, and can't we all use something to make us laugh?  Enjoy...

A guy is driving around the back woods of Montana and he sees a sign in front of a
broken down shanty-style house: 'Talking Dog For Sale '.  He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard.  The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.
'You talk?' he asks.   'Yep,' the Lab replies. After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says 'So, what's your story?'

The Lab looks up and says, 'Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young..
I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA.  In no time at all they had me jetting from
country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a
dog would be eavesdropping.'

'I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running... But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so  I decided to settle down. I signed up for a jobat the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.'  'I got married, had a  mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired.'

The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog.

'Ten dollars,' the guy says.

'Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?'

'Because he's a liar.  He's never been out of the yard!
If Thumper could talk, he'd tell tales like this.  Except they would probably be about catching squirrels or cats or rabbits when all he ever gets to chase are lizards or frogs.  And if Lightning could talk, he'd tell the truth about Thumper's stories.  He's like the big brother who likes to get the little brother in trouble, always there looking like, "But I'm good, right?" as Thumper is giving me material to blog about.  :)

Have a good Wednesday.  The weekend is only a couple of days away.
