A wealthy old lady decided to go on a photo safari in Africa. She took her
faithful pet poodle along for company. One day, the poodle starts chasing
butterflies and before long the poodle discovers that he is lost.
So, wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction
with the obvious intention of having lunch.
The poodle thinks, "OK, I'm in deep trouble now!" Then he noticed some
bones on the ground close by, and immediately settles down to chew on the
bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to
leap, the poodle exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious leopard. I
wonder if there are any more around here."
Hearing this, the leopard halts his attach in mid-stride, as a look of
terror comes over him, and slinks away into the trees. "Whew," says the
leopard. "That was close. That 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 poodle saw him heading after the leopard with great speed, and
figured that something must be up. The monkey soon catches up with the
leopard, spills the poodle's scam and strikes a deal for himself with the
leopard. The 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 poodle sees the leopard coming 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 poodle says . . . "Where's that damn monkey? I sent him off
half an hour ago to bring me another leopard!"
SOMETIMES BS AND BRILLIANCE ARE THE SAME!
