That was too d@mn funny if that is even possible to be too d@mn funny. I can’t stop laughing. That was one hilarious joke ! Thanks, I needed that, you see I just came from the picture show and had viewed Gladiator, which wasn’t really funny nor was it meant to be.

A nice way to cap off the evening. Hysterical.

And now… time for lights out. I will be posting some thoughts on St. Louis soon. You are a blessing to know. Good night compadre. Perry.

PS Some lessons are in that joke, as I’m sure you meant for them to be. Suttle, yet there for the taking.

I must be doing something wrong. I shook a big tree today. Got 2 crows, a snake and a dead squirrel to fall out but no monkey!

But, it won’t get me down, I’m gonna keep shaking the trees!!

Thanks for your wonderful advice and help in St. Louis. You’ve done much to boost our empire!!

OK Wayne, you ask for it.

I lied to you. It wasn’t a Monkey in the tree, it was a Gorilla.

You see, there I was sitting at home when I heard this ferocious sound out in my back yard.
I went out there to investigate, and low and be hold there it was, A Gorilla in my tree.

Well Wayne, I wasn’t quite sure what to do, so I called the Animal Shelter.
They told me that, that wasn’t their department, and referred me to the Gorilla Department.

I called the Gorilla Department, and they said that they would send a man right out.

After about 30 minutes, up pulled this old van, painted pink with blue polka dots.
On it was a sign that said, Gorilla Department.

Out jumped this heavy set man wearing Bermuda shorts, tennis shoes, and this funny little beanie
cap with a spinner on it. He walked up to my front door carrying a NET, a CLUB, a GUN, and had this
ugly looking dog with him.

He introduced himself as a specialist with Gorillas, who worked for the Gorilla Department.
He then asked me, where was the Gorilla?

I told him it was in a tree in the back yard, and proceeded to take him to the location.
When we got there, there it was, a big ugly Gorilla staring down from the tree. The man then told
me that, this would be no problem, he does this every day, but would need a little help.
He then handed me the GUN and then explained, that he was going to climb up the tree and shake this big ferocious Gorilla out of the tree, by hitting him with his club. He said, now let me tell you about this dog.

This is a special trained dog. When the Gorilla falls to the ground, this dog is going to attack the Gorilla and grab him by his testicles. When this happens the Gorilla will be helpless like a little baby, and that he would then throw the net over the Gorilla, capturing the Gorilla.

I said, that’s great, but what do I do with the GUN.

He then said, if something goes wrong, and the Gorilla shakes me out of the tree. You shoot that dog gone Dog.

So there you have it Wayne. And that the truth, so help me,
