There is a very old joke about a bloke having to get a gorilla down from a tree –
A man wakes up one morning to find a gorilla up in the tree in his front yard. Not knowing quite what to do, he looks in the yellow pages under “Gorilla Removal Service” and sure enough finds a listing-Harry`s Ape Removal.
So he calls up Harry and about an hour later Harry shows up with all the tools of his trade, a pick-up truck, a pair of handcuffs, a ferociously-trained dog and a shotgun.
Harry then proceeds to explain the removal procedure to the man because he will need help:
“Now, I`m going to climb up in this tree and shake the tree until the gorilla falls out of the tree. The very instant the gorilla hits the ground, this dog is trained to rush up and bite his balls. This will temporarily immobilize the gorilla allowing you to safely walk up and place the handcuffs on him. I`ll then get him into the truck while he`s still in a daze”.
Harry then begins to climb the tree and the man asks, “Hey what`s the shotgun for?”
“Oh, yes,” says Harry, “occasionally when I shake the tree, the gorilla shakes back, and if I fall, shoot the fucking dog!”
The version I remember is a bit different (the dog gives the gorilla a good seeing to – as in a serious rodgering) but you get the idea – especially as the punchline “shoot the fucking dog” is actually a more accurate description.
Anyway, I was reminded of this joke when I saw this short clip that Airdy had put on Facebook –
Quite unbelievably, Airdy added the headline “we all need a dog like this right now”
As if! Coming from Airdy this has to be a better joke than the one about the gorilla!
