For those of you who have a dog in your life, you don’t need anyone to tell you just how smart they are. They just seem to be able to do things we never thought animals could do and, at times, we might even feel that they are smarter that some of the people in the family. Perhaps that is why we love this joke so much. It shows a dog doing what they do best, being awesome. It even takes things to the extreme but in the end, the dog is almost too smart for his own good.
As a butcher is shooing away a dog from his shop, he sees a $10 bill and a note in his mouth, reading: “5 lamb chops, please.”
Amazed, he takes the money, puts a bag of chops in the dog’s mouth, and quickly closes the shop.
He follows the dog and watches him wait for a green light, look both ways, and trot across the road to a bus-stop.
The dog checks the timetable and sits on the bench.
When a bus arrives, he walks around to the front and looks at the number, then boards the bus.
The butcher follows, dumbstruck.
As the bus travels out into the suburbs, the dog takes in the scenery. after awhile he stands on his back paws to push the “stop” bell, then the butcher follows him off.
The dog runs up to a house and drops his bag on the step.
He goes back down the path, takes a big run, and throws himself -Whap!- against the door.
He does this again and again. no answer.
So he jumps on a wall, walks around the garden, beats his head against a window, jumps off, and waits at the front door.
A big guy opens it and starts cursing and shouting at the dog.
The butcher runs up and screams at the guy: “What are you doing? This dog’s a genius!”
The owner responds, “Genius? It’s the second time this week he’s forgotten his keys!”
