and he had a dog under his arm.
"Kipper my dog is a performing dog and can do tricks for me." He commands the dog to beg, to stand on his head, to turn a summersault and lots of other cleaver things.
After the applause dies he says, "But! He will only do tricks for me, nobody else. I bet anyone $100.00 that they can't make him do something for them."
Several guys try to make the dog do a trick but, he just sits there and glares at them.
"I can make him do something," says an old man in the corner, "but make it $500.00."
"You're on," says our friend.
The old man comes over, picks up the dog, throws it on the fire and says,
"Get Off Kipper!"
