Only in Oz ! !
« on: December 09, 2018, 11:59:24 pm »
   


   
          Two Aussies were out hunting in the outback and came
          upon a huge hole in the ground. They approached it and
          were amazed at its size.

          The first said, "Wow, that's some hole.  I can't even
          see thebottom.Iwonder how deep it is."

          The second said, "There's an old gear box over there.
          Let's throw it in and see how long it takes to hit bottom."

          So, they picked up the gear box, carried it over to the
          hole, counted one-two-three, and heaved it in.

          As they were standing there looking over the edge of the
          hole, a goat come crashing through the underbrush, ran
          up to the hole and without hesitation, jumped in head first.

          While they were standing there staring at each other in
          amazement, they peered into the hole, trying to figure
          out what that was all about.

          Just then an old farmer sauntered up. "Say, you fellers
          didn't happen to see my goat?"

          The first hunter said, "Funny you should ask.  We were
          just standing here a minute ago, and a goat came running
          out of the bushes doing about a hundred miles an hour
          and jumped head first into this here hole!"

          The old farmer said, "Naw, that's impossible!  I had him
          well chained to an old gear box."

Someone really ought to tell them that the world of Ayn Rand?s novel was not meant to be aspirational.

This was so funny, I told this joke to almost everyone in my family!   :cheesy:
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.
