"Just send him over here with $1,000 and I can get him in the course.."
About two-thirds of the way through the semester, the money again ran out.
"So how's Ole' Blue doing son?" his Father asked.
"Awesome! Dad, he's talking up a storm, but you just won't believe this -- they've had such good results they have started to teach the animals how to read!"

The money promptly arrived.
Even though he was always pretty much able to lie his way out of trouble, the Arkie asked his girlfriend to help him think of a really good lie to tell his Dad.

The Father went white.
"I sure did, Dad!"
"That's my boy!"
The kid married his girlfriend and they both went on to law school.
He became Governor of Arkansas and President of the United States.
