THE BEAR AND THE DOG AT THE CHURCH HOUSE (THE MAN FROM MUDDYFORK) Stanley Ray Mcqueen, Kentucky The other day a gentleman told me about a fellow who has a bad habit of telling lies ...... He joined a church and the preacher knew he had been noted as being very bad to tell lies ...... The untruthful fellow would get mad when he told someone a lie and they wouldn't believe him ...... Well, the preacher met him at the porch of the church house where everyone had gathered just to chat a spell before the service, and the good pastor had a good sense of humor, so he thought to mess with the new member who was noted as a liar ...... "Well, well, Slim," says the preacher, "We all missed you not being here Sunday. Where were you last Sunday?" ...... "Well, preacher, I had some work that needed doing real bad so I missed to catch up on my work," answered Slim ...... "Well, you missed the awfulest thing that ever happened here at the church," replied the preacher ...... "What happened?" asked the curious Slim ...... "Well," said the preacher, "I was up behind the altar preaching my heart out when the door of the church suddenly busted open and through it comes a big black bear ...... And right behind the bear was a wee little Mexican dog ...... That dog was biting and tearing at that bear like a wildcat would do a dog, and this might be hard to believe," said the serious-looking preacher, "that dog killed that big grizzly bear right before all the Good Saints' eyes, and it was a sure kill, I tell you, Slim, that bear was killed graveyard-dead, sure enough," explains the preacher ...... "I know this will be hard for you to believe," repeats the preacher ...... "Oh, no it won't," says Slim ...... "Well, why won't it be?" asked the preacher ...... "Well, that's easy," says Slim. "That was my dog that killed that bear" ...... All the folks laughed, and as usual, Slim got real mad, and leaped off the church stoop, madder than blazes because they laughed at his lies. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Tweet
