This is one of those I had to pass along. I got it in an Email earlier!
A wealthy old Gentleman decides to go on a
hunting safari in Africa , taking his faithful,
elderly Jack Russell named Killer,
along for the company.
One day the old Jack Russell 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 lunch.
The old Jack Russell 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 Jack Russell exclaims loudly,
‘Boy, that was one delicious leopard!
I wonder, if there are any more
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 Jack Russell
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 Jack Russell 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 canine!
Now, the old Jack Russell 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 old Jack Russell says…
‘Where’s that darn monkey? I sent him off
an hour ago to bring me another leopard!
Moral of this story.
age and skill will always overcome youth and
Brilliance only come with age
Of course, I am in no way saying
that any of you are old, some are just
more ‘youthfully challenged.’
