Talking Reading Dog Course
A teenaged boy went off to university, but about a third of the way through the semester, he had foolishly squandered the money his parents had given him. Desperate to get more money out of his father, he came up with a cunning plan.
Phoning home one weekend, he said: "Dad, you won't believe the educational opportunities that are available at this university! Why, they've even got a course here that will teach Fido how to talk!"
"That's incredible!" said the gullible father. "How do I enrol him on the course?"
"Just send him down here with $1,000, and I'll make sure he gets on the course."
So the father sent the dog and $1,000, but about two-thirds of the way through the semester, that money had also run out. The boy called his father again.
"How's Fido doing?" asked the father.
"Awesome, Dad, he's talking brilliantly. But you just won't believe this, they've had such a great results with the talking dogs course that they're starting up a new one to teach the animals how to read!"
"Read?" echoed his father. "No kidding! What do I have to do to get him on that course?"
"Just send $2,500. I'll get him on the course."
His father duly sent the money, but at the end of the semester, the boy was faced with a problem: how to conceal from his father the fact that the dog could neither talk nor read. So the boy decided to take drastic action and shot the dog. When he arrived home, his father was waiting expectantly.
"Where's Fido?" asked the father. "I just can't wait to hear him talk or listen to him reading something."
"Dad," said the boy solemnly, "I've got some bad news. This morning, when I got out of the shower, Fido was in the living room reading the morning paper, like he usually does. Then suddenly he turned to me and asked: "So, is your Dad still messing around with that little blonde at number 44?"
The father's face turned red with rage and he shouted: "I hope you shot that lying dog!"
"I sure did, Dad."
"That's my boy!"
