View Full Version : Lying and Dogs

Hillary was walking down the street after a fundraiser when she came upon a group of about a dozen boys, all of them between 10 and 12 years of age.

The group surrounded a dog. Concerned that the boys were hurting the dog, she went over and asked "What are you doing with that dog?"

One of the boys replied, "This dog is just an old neighborhood stray. We all want him, but only one of us can take him home. So we've decided that whichever one of us can tell the biggest lie will get to keep the dog."

Of course, Hillary was taken aback. "You boys shouldn't be having a contest telling lies!" she exclaimed. She then launched into a ten minute speech against lying, beginning, "Don't you boys know it's a sin to lie," and ending with, "Why, when I was your age, I never told a lie."

There was dead silence for about a minute. Just as Hillary was beginning to think she'd gotten through to them, the smallest boy gave a deep sigh and said, "All right, give her the damn dog."
