Two guys are walking through the woods and come across this big
"Wow...that looks deep." "Sure does... toss a few pebbles in there
and see how deep it is."
They pick up a few pebbles and throw them in and wait... no noise.
"Jeeez. That is REALLY deep... here.. throw one of these great big
rocks down there. Those should make a noise."
They pick up a couple football-sized rocks and toss them into the
hole and wait... and wait. Nothing.
They look at each other in amazement. One gets a determined
look on his face and says, "Hey...over here in the weeds, there's a
railroad tie. Help me carry it over here. When we toss THAT sucker
in, it's GOTTA make some noise."
The two drag the heavy tie over to the hole and heave it in. Not a
sound comes from the hole.
Suddenly, out of the nearby woods, a goat appears, running like the
wind. It rushes toward the two men, then right past them, running as
fast as it's legs will carry it. Suddenly it leaps in the air and
into the hole.
The two men are astonished with what they've just seen...
Then, out of the woods comes a farmer who spots the men and
"Hey... you two guys seen my goat out here?"
"You bet we did! Craziest thing I ever seen! It came running like
crazy and just jumped into this hole!"
"Nah", says the farmer, "That couldn't have been MY goat. My goat was
chained to a railroad tie."
