A butcher is busy at work when he notices a dog in his shop. He shoos the dog
away. Later, he notices the dog is back again. He walks over to the dog and
notices that the dog has a note in his mouth. The butcher takes the note which
reads, "Can I have 12 sausages and a leg of lamb, please"?
The butcher looks, and lo and behold, in the dog's mouth, there is a ten
dollar bill. So the butcher takes the money, puts the sausages and lamb in a bag,
and places it in the dog's mouth.
The butcher is very impressed, and since it was closing time, he decides to
close up shop and follow the dog.
So, off he goes. The dog is walking down the street and comes to a crossing.
The dog puts down the bag, jumps up and presses the crossing button. Then he
waits patiently, bag in mouth, for the lights to change. They do, and he walks
across the road, with the butcher following.
The dog then comes to a bus stop, and starts looking at the timetable. The
butcher is in awe at this stage. The dog checks out the times, and sits on one
of the seats to wait for the bus. Along comes a bus. The dog walks to the front
of the bus, looks at the number, and goes back to his seat. Another bus
comes. Again, the dog goes and looks at the number, notices it's the right bus, and
climbs on. The butcher, by now open-mouthed, follows him onto the bus.
The bus travels through town and out to the suburbs. Eventually the dog gets
up, moves to the front of the bus, stands on his hind legs and pushes the
button to stop the bus. The dog gets off, groceries still in his mouth, with the
butcher still following.
They walk down the road, and the dog approaches a house. He walks up the
path, and drops the groceries on the step.
He then walks back down the path, takes a big run, and throws himself (whap!)
against the door. He goes back down the path, takes another run, and throws
himself (whap!) against the door again! There's no answer at the door, so the
dog goes back down the path, jumps up on a narrow wall, and walks along the
perimeter of the garden. He gets to a window, and bangs his head against it
several times. He walks back, jumps off the wall, and waits at the door. The
butcher watches as a big guy opens the door, and starts laying into the dog, really
yelling at him.
The butcher runs up and stops the guy.
"What do you think you are doing? This dog is a genius. He could be on TV,
for goodness sake!"
"He's not clever," the guy responds. "This is the second time this week he's
forgotten his key!"
