Two Virginia boys, Sonny
and Rick, went
out hunting and split up. Sonny heard some rustling in the
and, by mistake, shot his friend.
After trying to remove the
bullet, he carried Rick to a doctor.
Two hours later, after the
physician had patched up the wounded hunter,
Sonny asked, "Please, Doc.
How's my friend?"
"Well," answered the M.D., "he'd be a lot
better off if you hadn't

up quite safely and put them in the sack." "But what do I need the
gun for?" asked the assisant. "If I should fall out of the tree by
mistake, shoot the dog."
Two men were out hunting when one of them saw
a rabbit. "Quick," said the first, "shoot it." "I can't," said
the second. "My gun isn't loaded." "Well," said the first," you
know that, and I know that, but the rabbit doesn't."
