The dog shakes his head in amazement


A dog walks into a bar and orders a pint of beer and a ham sandwich.

The barman looks at him and says, “Hang on! You’re a dog.”

“I see your eyes are working,” replies the dog.

“And you can talk!” Exclaims the barman.

“I see your ears are working, too,” says the dog.

“Now if you don’t mind, can I have my beer and my sandwich please?”

“Certainly, sorry about that,” says the barman as he pulls the dog’s pint.

“It’s just we don’t get many dogs in this pub. What are you doing round this way?”

“I’m working on the building site across the road,” Explains the dog.

“I’m a plasterer.”

The flabbergasted barman cannot believe the dog and wants to learn more but takes the hint when the dog pulls out a newspaper from his bag and proceeds to read it.

So, the dog reads his paper, drinks his beer, eats his sandwich, bids the barman good day and leaves.

The same thing happens for two weeks.

Then one day the circus comes to town.

The ringmaster comes into the pub for a pint and the barman says to him “you’re with the circus, aren’t you?

Well, I know this dog that could be just brilliant in your circus. He talks, drinks beer, eats sandwiches, reads the newspaper and everything!”

“Sounds marvelous,” says the ringmaster, handing over his business card.

“Get him to give me a call.”

The next day when the dog comes into the pub the barman says, “Hey Mr. dog, I reckon I can line you up with a top job, paying really good money.”

“I’m always looking for the next job,” says the dog.

“Where is it?”

“At the circus,” says the barman.

“The circus?” Repeats the dog.

“That’s right,” Replies the barman.

“The circus?” The dog asks again.

“With the big tent?”

“Yeah,” the barman replies.

“With all the animals who live in cages, and performers who live in caravans?” says the dog.

“Of course,” the barman replies.

“And the tent has canvas sides and a big canvas roof with a hole in the middle?” persists the dog.

“That’s right!” says the barman.

The dog shakes his head in amazement and says “why in the world would they want a plasterer??
