A good story, made my day.A group of country friends from the Cottonwood Baptist Church
wanted to get together on a regular basis, socialize, and play games. The
lady of the house was to prepare the meal. When it came time for Al and
Janet to be the hosts - Janet wanted to outdo all the others.
Janet decided to have mushroom-smothered steak. But, mushrooms are
expensive. She then told her husband, "No mushrooms. They are too high."
He said, "Why don't you go down in the pasture and pick some of those
mushrooms? There are plenty in the creek bed."
She said, "No, some wild mushrooms are poison."
He said, "Well, I see varmints eating them and they're OK."
Soooo - Janet decided to give it a try. She picked a bunch, washed,
sliced, and diced them for her smothered steak. Then she went out on the
back porch and gave Ol' Spot (the yard dog) a double handful. Ol' Spot
ate every bite. All morning long, Janet watched Ol' Spot and the wild
mushrooms didn't seem to affect him, so she decided to use them.
The meal was a great success, and Janet even hired a helper lady from
town to help her serve. She had on a white apron and a fancy little cap
on her head.
After everyone had finished, they relaxed, socialized, and played 42 &
About then, the helper lady from town came in and whispered in
Janet's ear. She said, "Mrs. Williams, Ol' Spot just died."
Janet went into hysterics. After she finally calmed down, she called the
doctor and told him what had happened. The doctor said, "That's bad, but
I think we can take care of it. I will call for an ambulance and I will
be there as quick as possible. We'll give everyone enemas and we will
pump out everyone's stomach. Everything will be fine. Just keep them
Soon they could hear the siren as the ambulance was coming down the road.
The EMTs & the doctor had their suitcases, syringes, and a stomach pump.
One by one, they took each person into the bathroom, gave them an enema,
and pumped out their stomach. After the last one was finished, the doctor
came out and said, "I think everything will be fine now," and he left.
They were all looking pretty weak sitting around the living room, and
about this time, the helper lady came in and said, "You know, that fella
that ran over Ol Spot never even stopped! "
