Laugh With Lisa: The Hindquarters Of A Mule

Lisa DeMarco brings us a Wild Western joke.

An old prospector shuffled into town leading his tired old pack mule. The old man headed straight for th only saloon in town to clear his parched throat. He walked up and tied his old mule to the hitch rail.

As he stood there brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a whiskey bottle in the other. The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed, saying, “Hey old man, have you ever danced?”

The old man looked up and said, “No, I never did dance…never really wanted to.”

A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said, “Well, you old fool, you’re gonna dance now.” shooting at the old man’s feet.

The old prospector, not wanting to get a toe blown off, started hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet. Everyone was laughing and fit to be tied.

When the last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon.

The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a double-barreled shotgun and cocked both hammers. The loud click carried clearly through the desert air. The crowd stopped laughing immediately.

The young gunslinger heard the sounds too, and he turned around very slowly. The silence was almost deafening. The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old timer and the large gaping holes of those twin barrels.

The barrels of the shotgun never wavered in the old man’s hands. As he quietly said, “Son, have you ever licked a mule’s ass?”

The young gunslinger swallowed hard and said, “No sir…but I’ve always wanted to!”
