He's always in my way and follows me everywhere I go, even when I go to town."His son took to college life like a duck to water.
Within 45 days, he had partied away all the money that was supposed to last the whole semester. In a bind, the boy called his father... "Dad, you won't believe this. One of my professors says Jake is so smart that he can teach him to talk. But it will cost $1,000.00 for his time.
Being as astute businessman, the oil man quickly grasped the fact that a dog that could talk would be worth $millions. "Son, I'll send you a check today."
After another month and a lot of partying, the boy was broke again. So he called his father again, "Dad, that professor has Jake talking like he's been doing it all his life. And get this... For another $1,000, the professor thinks he can teach him to read."
Now, a dog that can talk and read if worth a lot more than a dog that can just talk and the oil man realized this. "Son, I'll send you another check today."
By the time the boy had blown the $1,000, it was time for the Thanksgiving break, so with a lot of misgivings, he started home. About 100 miles from the house, his fertile mind came up with a strategy that he hoped would save his life.
He called his dad from his cell phone... "Dad, Jake and I are a couple of hours away. But there's a problem... As we were going down the road, out of the blue, Ol' Jake looked up from the newspaper he was reading and told me he was really going to be glad to get home so he could tell Mom about all those other women he's seen you with."
There was a moment of dead silence and then the oil man said, "Son, you listen to me and do exactly what I tell you... Pull over, throw that dog out of the pickup, and then you shoot that lying dog."
