Political Humor – The parable of the talking dog

Written by Wellness Club on October 2, 2008 – 1:54 pm -

A young cowboy from Wyoming went off to college, but half way through the semester, he had foolishly squandered all his money.

He called home: “Dad,” he said, “You won’t believe what modern education is developing! They actually have a program here in Laramie that will teach our dog, Ol’ Blue how to talk!”

‘That’s amazing,” his Dad said. “How do I get Ol’ Blue in that program?”

“Just send him down here with $1,000″ the young cowboy said. “I’ll get him in the course.”

So, his father sent the dog and $1,000. About two-thirds through the semester, the money again ran out. The boy called home.

“So how’s Ol’ Blue doing son?” his father asks.

“Awesome, Dad, he’s talking up a storm,” says the young man, “but you just won’t believe this – they’ve had such good results they have started to teach the animals how to read!”

“Read!” says his father, “No kidding! How do we get Blue in that program?”

“Just send $2,500, I’ll get him in the class.” replies the son.

The money promptly arrived. But our hero had a problem. At the end of the year, his father would find out the dog can neither talk, nor read. So he shoots the dog.

When he arrives home at the end of the year, his father is all excited. “Where’s Ol’ Blue? I just can’t wait to see him read something and talk!”

“Dad,” the boy says, “I have some grim news. Yesterday morning, just before we left to drive home, Ol’ Blue was in the living room, kicked back in the recliner, reading the Wall Street Journal, like he usually does. Then he turned to me and asked, ‘So, is your daddy still messing’ around with that little redhead who lives in town?”

The father exclaimed, “I hope you shot that son of a gun–before he talks to your Mother!”

“‘I sure did, Dad!”

“That’s my boy!”

The kid went on to be a successful lawyer… And soon after that he went on to become a Congressman!
