A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in Africa, taking her
> faithful aged poodle named Cuddles, along for the company.
> One day the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long, Cuddles
> discovers that he's lost.. Wandering about, he notices a leopard heading
> rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.
> The old poodle thinks, "Oh, oh! I'm in deep doo-doo now!" Noticing some
> bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the
> bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to
> leap the old poodle exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I
> wonder if there are any more around here?"
> Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of
> terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. "Whew!", says the
> leopard, "That was close! That old poodle nearly had me!"
> Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby
> tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for
> protection from the leopard. So off he goes, but the old poodle sees him heading
> after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something must be up.
> The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and
> strikes a deal for himself with the leopard.
> The young leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here,
> monkey, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving canine!
> Now, the old poodle sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back
> and thinks, "What am I going to do now?", but instead of running, the dog
> sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet,
> and just when they get close enough to hear, the old poodle says, "Where's
> that damn monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!
> Moral of this story....
> Don't mess with old s...age and treachery will always overcome youth
> and skill! Bullshit and brilliance only come with age and experience.
> If you don't send this to five "old" friends right away there will be five
