The Gnu Story
[Return to Topics]

JDK    Posted 08-02-2004 at 16:14:34       [Reply]  [No Email]
Once upon a time in the enchanted forest there lived three gnus.

There was a momma gnu.

There was a poppa gnu.

And there was a baby gnu.

Came dinner time one day and there was nothing to eat. So the poppa gnu decided to go out into the forest and collect some nuts and berries for dinner.
Just then baby gnu piped up and said "Bleah! Nuts and berries again!"
So the poppa gnu went out into the forest.
Little did he know that it was hunting season for gnus. And as he was
walking along, BLAM! BLAM! the hunter killed him dead in his tracks.
After a while, momma gnu decided that old pops must be lost out in the
So she said "Baby, you be a good gnu while I go out to look for your
old man."
She didn't know it was hunting season for gnus either. And as she was
walking along, BLAM! BLAM! The hunter killed her dead in her tracks.
After a while, baby gnu was getting a little lonely and decided to go
out and look for his parents.
He didn't know it was hunting season either. And as he was walking
along, BLAM! BLAM! The hunter got him too.
Assassinated him on the trail.
Did him in.
Knocked him off.
Killed him dead in his tracks.
Well, That's all the gnus. The weather in a moment.

Seems that Baby Gnu had been very bad, and Momma Gnu told him "you just wait till your father gets home!" When Father Gnu came home, Momma Gnu explained how bad Baby had been, and said Father ought to give him a spanking. Father said "no way--you'll have to paddle your own Gnu"......

The hunter of Gnus is a bad shot or those varmints are wearing flack jackets.

Or their pelts have this wonderful regenerative quality - every time you perforate the beast, he grows a gnu one. :)
