One night, at the lodge of a hunting club, two
new members were being introduced to other members and shown around. The man
leading them around said, "See that old man asleep in the chair by the
fireplace? He is our oldest member and can tell you some hunting stories
you'll never forget."
They awakened the old man and asked him to tell them a story.
"Well, I remember back in 1944, we went on a lion hunting
expedition in Africa. We were on foot and hunted for three days without seeing
a thing. On the fourth day, I was so tired I had to rest my feet. I found a
fallen tree, so I laid my gun down, propped my head on the tree, and fell
asleep. I don't know how long I was asleep when I was awakened by a noise in
the bushes. I was reaching for my gun when the biggest damn lion I'd ever seen
jumped out of the bushes at me like this: RRROOAARRR!!!
you, I just wet my pants."
The young men looked astonished and one of them said, "I don't blame you, I
would have wet my pants too if a lion jumped out at me."
The old man shook his head and said, "No, no... not back then, just now, when
I said RRROOAAARRR!!!"
