A wealthy old lady decided to go on a photo safari in
Africa. She took her faithful pet dachshund along for
company. One day, the dachshund starts chasing
butterflies and before long the dachshund discovers
that he is lost.

So, wandering about, he notices a leopard heading
rapidly in his direction with the obvious intention of
having lunch. The dachshund thinks, "OK, I'm in deep trouble now! Then he
noticed some bones on the ground
close by, and immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to
the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap, the dachshund
exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious leopard. I wonder if there are
any more around here."

Hearing this, the leopard halts his attack in
mid-stride, as a look of terror comes over him, and
slinks away into the trees. "Whew," says the leopard.
"That was close. That dachshund nearly had me.."

Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree
figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection
from the leopard. So, off he goes.

But the dachshund saw him heading after
the leopard with great speed, and figured that something must be up.
The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a
deal for himself with the leopard.
The leopard is furious at being made a fool of and
says, "Here monkey, hop on my back and see what's
going to happen to that conniving canine."

Now the dachshund sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back, and
thinks, "What am I going to do now?"
But instead of running, the dog sits down with his
back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet... and just when
they get close enough to hear the dachshund says......................
"Where's that damn monkey? I sent him off half an hour ago to bring me
another leopard!"
