Entering a little country store, a stranger noticed a sign that read, DANGER! BEWARE OF DOG! Inside, he saw a harmless old hound asleep on the floor near the cash register. He asked the owner, Is that the dog folks are supposed to beware of? Yep, the owner answered. Thats him. The stranger couldnt help being amused. That certainly doesnt look like a dangerous dog to me, he said with a chuckle. Why did you decide to post that sign? Because, the owner replied, before I posted it, people kept tripping over him.
