    Default Can you dance?

    An old prospector shuffled into town leading an old tired mule.

    The old man headed straight for the only saloon to clear his parched throat.

    He walked up and tied his old mule to the hitch rail. As he stood there, brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other.

    The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed, saying, "Hey old man, have you ever danced?"

    The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, "No, I never did dance.. never really wanted to."

    A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said, "Well, you old fool, you're gonna dance now," and started shooting at the old man's feet.

    The old prospector --not wanting to get a toe blown off-- started hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet. Everybody was laughing, fit to be tied.

    When his last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon.

    The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a double-barreled shotgun, and cocked both hammers.

    The loud clicks carried clearly through the desert air.

    The crowd stopped laughing immediately.

    The young gunslinger heard the sounds too, and he turned around very slowly. The silence was almost deafening.

    The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old timer and the large gaping holes of those twin barrels.

    The barrels of the shotgun never wavered in the old man's hands, as he quietly said, "Son, have you ever licked a mule's ass?"

    The gunslinger swallowed hard and s aid, "No sir..... but... I've always wanted to."





    If you are looking for a moral here you could say that old men dont get old by being stupid!

    I don't get it. How does the fact that the old man possessed a gun make him smart? From your text I have ascertained that the story was based around the time of the old West in the United States of America, but surely around this time the ownership of guns was commonplace, in fact, probably more common than it is today, and let's face it, American gun ownership is rather high.

    To be honest I find the whole story hard to believe. What kind of people were living in this town? They stood idly by while a young gunslinger bullied and humiliated an elderly, tired old man? I think not.

    Check your facts man.

    Well, there are two morals to the story:

    1) Don't waste ammunition
    2) Don't mess with old people
    The Gods are just, and of our pleasant vices
    Make instruments to plague us

    This reminds me of the story of the old bull and the young bull.

    The old bull and the young bull were standing at the top of the hill, looking down at the cows below

    "Let's run down the hill", said the young bull, "and have ourselves a cow"

    The old bull shakes his head slowly.

    "No son", he says at length, "let's walk down, and have all of the cows"

    No. It was quite funny. Quite funny indeed. And a little bit profound.
