In Africa, you’d better be running…

If you are a Buck, you only have to run faster than the slowest buck to avoid becoming lion dinner. If you are a lion, you only have to outrun the slowest buck to catch dinner. The moral of the story is that when you wake up in Africa, you’d better be running…

Likewise if you are going to braai or BBQ as we sophisticated Australians call it in Africa, your camplight only has to outlast the darkness to avoid being eaten by a lion and likewise if you are a lion you have to outlast the gas in the camp light. Moral of the story is, if you go camping make sure you have lots of gas. Or maybe buck was on the BBQ, which was easier than cooking their own.

WTF?

Anyway, think this dude knew what was lurking behind him? Im thinking he had no idea.

Nothin beats age and experience

A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in Africa, taking her faithful aged poodle named Cuddles, along for the company.

One day the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long, Cuddles discovers that he’s lost. Wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.

The old poodle thinks, “Oh, oh! I’m in deep shit now!”

Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones  with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap the old poodle exclaims loudly, “Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder if  there are any more around here?”

Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. “Whew!”, says the leopard, “That was close! That old poodle 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 old poodle sees him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures 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 young 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 old poodle 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 old poodle says.

“Where’s that damn monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!

Moral of this story….

Don’t mess with old farts…age and treachery will always overcome youth  and skill!

Bullshit and brilliance only come with age and experience.
