Get Away From my Deer!
It was Saturday morning and Jake, an avid hunter, woke up ready to go bag the
first deer of the season. He walks down to the kitchen to get a cup of coffee,
and to his surprise he finds his wife, Alice, sitting there, fully dressed in
camouflage. Jake asks her, ï¿½What are you up to?ï¿½ Alice smiles, ï¿½I’m going
hunting with you!ï¿½ Jake, though he has many reservations, reluctantly decides to
take her along.
They arrive at the hunting site. Jake sets his wife safely up in the tree
stand and tells her: ï¿½If you see a deer, take careful aim on it and I’ll come
running back as soon as I hear the shot.ï¿½ Jake walks away with a smile on his
face knowing that Alice couldn’t bag an elephant — much less a deer.
But not 10 minutes pass when he is startled as he hears an array of gunshots.
Quickly, Jake starts running back. As Jake gets closer to her stand, he hears
Alice screaming, ï¿½Get away from my deer!ï¿½ Confused, Jake races faster towards
his screaming wife. And again he hears her yell, ï¿½Get away from my deer!ï¿½
followed by another volley of gunfire.
Now within sight of where he had left his wife, Jake is surprised to see a
cowboy, with his hands high in the air. The cowboy, obviously distraught, says,
ï¿½Okay, lady, okay!You can have your deer! Just let me get my saddle off it!ï¿½
