The Talking dog

A young man from Arkansas went off to college.

Half way through the semester, having foolishly squandered all of his money on his girlfriend, he called home.

"Dad, you won't believe what modern education is developing!?

They actually have a program here at Hendrix that will teach our dog, Ole' Blue how to talk!"

"That's amazing, how do I get Ole' Blue in that program?"

"Just send him over here with $1,000 and I can get him in the course.."  

His Father sent the dog and $1,000.

About two-thirds of the way through the semester, the money again ran out.

The boy called home.

"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!"

"Read!?"  No kidding! How do we get Blue in that program?"

Just send $2,500, I'll get him in the class."

The money promptly arrived.

The Arkie and his girlfriend were able to buy enough marijuana to last the whole semester, but our hero has a problem.

At the end of the year, his father will find out the dog can neither talk nor read.

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.

She very quickly came up with a lie for him. Then she had him shoot the dog.

When the young man arrived home at the end of the year, his Father was very excited.

"Where's Ole' Blue? I just can't wait to see him read something and talk!"

"Dad, I have some grim news.

Yesterday morning, just before we left to drive home, Ole' Blue was in the living room, kicked back in the recliner, reading the Wall Street Journal, like he usually did.

Then Ole' Blue turned to me and asked, so, is your Daddy still messing around with that little redhead who lives down the street?"

The Father went white.

"I hope you shot that lying damn dog before he talks to your Mother!"

"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.

You already know what a liar his girlfriend turned out to be.
