African safari - with a moral

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 attack 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 beans 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 canine."

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!"
