The next time someone asks you a dumb question wouldn't you like to

respond like this?.....

Yesterday I was buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for Athena the

wonder dog at Wal-Mart and was about to check out. A woman behind

me asked if I had a dog. What did she think I had, an elephant? So since

I'm retired, with little to do, on impulse, I told her that no, I didn't have a

dog, and that I was starting the Purina Diet again.

Although I probably shouldn't, because I'd ended up in the hospital last

time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care

ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that

it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat

one or two every time you feel hungry and that the food is nutritionally

complete so I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that

practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story.)

Horrified , she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog

food poisoned me.

I told her no; I stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish Setter's butt and a

car hit us both.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack, he was

laughing so hard!

WAL-MART won't let me shop there ANYMORE.

(my apologies if this has been posted before... I may be acting anal-retententive... a quick word search on the word 'butt' yieded no dupes :lol: )
