Dinner for eight


A group of country friends from the Cottonwood Baptist Church wanted
to get together on a regular basis to socialize, and play games. The lady
of the house was to prepare the meal.

When it came time for Al and Janet to be the hosts, Janet wanted to
outdo all the others. Janet decided to have mushroom-smothered
steak, but, mushrooms are expensive. She then told her husband, 'No
mushrooms. They are too high.'

He said, 'Why don't you go down in the pasture and pick some of those
mushrooms? There are plenty in the creek bed.'

She said, 'No, some wild mushrooms are poison.'

He said, 'Well, I see varmints eating them and they're OK.'

So, Janet decided to give it a try. She picked a bunch, washed,
sliced, and diced them for her smothered steak. Then she went out on
the back porch and gave Ole' Spot's (the yard dog) a double hand ful.

Ole' Spot ate every bite. All morning long, Janet watched Ole' Spot
and the wild mushrooms didn't seem to affect him, so she decided to
use them.

The meal was a great success, and Janet even hired a helper lady
from town to help her serve. She had on a white apron and a fancy
little cap on her head.

After everyone had finished, they relaxed, socialized, and played
Phase 10 and Mexican train dominoes. About then, the helper lady
from town, came in and whispered in Janet's ear, 'Mrs. Williams,
Ole' Spot just died'

Janet went into hysterics. After she finally calmed down, she called
doctor and told him what had happened.

The doctor said, 'That's bad, but I think we can take care of it. I
will call for an ambulance and I will be there as quick as possible.
We'll give everyone enemas and we will pump out everyone's
stomach. Everything will be fine. Just keep them calm.'

Soon they could hear the siren as the ambulance was coming down the
The EMTs and the doctor had their suitcases, syringes, and a stomach
pump. One by one, they took each person into the bathroom, gave them
an enema, and pumped out their stomach. After the last one was
finished, the doctor came out and said, 'I think everything will be
fine now.' Then he left.

They were all looking pretty weak sitting around the living room,
and about this time, the helper lady came in and said, 'You know,
that fellow that ran over Ole' Spot never even stopped!'*

How is it that one careless match can start a forest fire,but it takes a whole box to start a campfire??
