For Those of Us Who Have Lots and Lots and Lots of Experience in Something, psoted by Ariane David, (adavid@theveritasgroup.com)

A wealthy old man decides to go on a photo safari in Africa , taking his
faithful, elderly poodle named  Cuddles, along for the company.

One day the old 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 doo-doo 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 the old dogs…age and skill will always  overcome youth and
treachery! Bullshit and brilliance only come with age and  experience.
