    Muskogee Ok.
    A young farm lad from North Iowa goes off to college, but about 1/3
    of the way through the semester, he has foolishly squandered away
    all of the money his parents gave him.
    Then he gets an idea. He calls his daddy. "Dad," he says, "you won't
    believe the wonders that modern education is coming up with! Why,
    they actually have a program here at Iowa State that will teach our
    dog Ole Blue how to talk!" That's absolutely amazing," his father says.
    "How do I get him into that program?"
    "Just send him down here with $1,000" the boy says. "I'll get him
    into the course". So, his father sends the dog and the $1,000.
    About 2/3 of the way through the semester, the money runs out. The
    boy calls his father again.
    So how's Ole Blue doing, son," his father asks.
    "Awesome, Dad, he's talking up a storm," he says, "but you just won't
    believe this -- they've had such good results with this program that
    they've implemented a new one to teach the animals how to read!"
    READ?" says his father, "No kidding! What do I have to do to get
    him in that program?"
    Just send $2,500, I'll get him in the class." His father sends the money.
    The boy now has a problem. At the end of the year, his father will
    find out that the dog can neither talk, nor read. So he shoots the
    dog. When he gets home at the end of the semester, his father is all
    Where's Ole Blue? I just can't wait to hear him talk and read something!"
    Dad," the boy says, "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 does. Then he turned to me and asked, "So, is your daddy
    still messing around with that little redhead who lives in town?"
    The father says, "I hope you shot that son of a buck before he gets
    a chance to talk to your Mother!"
    I sure did, Dad!"
    That's my boy!"
    The kid went on to be a successful lawyer.......
