Poor old spot
« on: September 26, 2015, 08:24:58 pm »
A group of friends from the Cottonwood Baptist Church wanted
to get together on a regular basis, socialize, and play games.
The lady of the house was to prepare the meal.
When it came time for Al and Jean to be the hosts, Jean wanted
to outdo all the others. She decided to have mushroom-smothered
steak. But mushrooms are expensive.
She then told her husband, "No mushrooms. They are too high
priced."
He said, "Why don't you go down in the pasture and pick some of
those mushrooms? There are plenty in the creek bed."
She said, "No, some wild mushrooms are poison."
He said, "Well, I see varmints eating them and they're OK." So
Jean decided to give it a try. She picked a bunch, washed,
sliced, and diced them for her smothered steak.
Then she went out on the back porch and gave Ol' Spot (the yard
dog) a double handful. Ol' Spot ate every bite. All morning
long, Jean watched Ol' Spot and the wild mushrooms didn't seem
to affect him, so she decided to use them.
The meal was a great success, and Jean even hired a helper lady
from town to help her serve. After everyone had finished, they relaxed,
socialized, and played poker and dominoes. About then,
the helper lady came in and whispered in Jean's ear. She said,
"Mrs. Williams, Ol'Spot is dead."
Jean went into hysterics. After she finally calmed down, she
called the doctor and told him what had happened.
The doctor said, "That's bad, but I think we can take care of it.
I will call for an ambulance and I will be there as quickly as possible. We'll give everyone enemas and we will pump out
everyone's stomach. Everything will be fine. Just keep them calm."
Soon they could hear the siren as the ambulance was coming down
the road. The EMTs and the doctor had their suitcases, syringes,
and a stomach pump.
One by one, they took each person into the bathroom, gave them an enema, and pumped out their stomach. The scene was not pretty.
After the last one was finished, the doctor came out and said, "I think everything will be fine now," and he left. They were all
looking pretty weak sitting around the living room.

About this time the lady's helper came in and whispered to Jean,
"You know, that fellow that run over Ol' Spot never even stopped."
“Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
