    old prospector

    An old prospector shuffled into the
    town of El Indio, Texas leading a tired old
    mule. The old man headed straight for the only
    saloon in town, to clear his parched throat.

    He walked up to the saloon 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 bottle
    of whiskey in the other.

    The young
    gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed,
    saying, "Hey old man, can you dance?"

    old man looked up at the gunslinger and said,
    "No son, I don't dance... never really wanted

    A crowd had gathered as the
    gunslinger grinned and said, "Well, you old
    fool, you're gonna dance now!" and started
    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

    Everybody standing around was

    When his 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 12
    gauge shotgun and cocked both hammers.

    The loud clicks carried clearly through
    the desert air. The crowd stopped laughing

    The young gunslinger heard
    the sounds too, and he turned around very

    The silence was deafening. The
    crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the
    old timer and the large gaping holes of those
    twin 12 gauge barrels.

    The barrels
    of the shotgun never wavered in the old man's
    hands, as he quietly said;

    "Son, have you
    ever kissed a mule's ass?"

    The gunslinger
    swallowed hard and said, "No sir... but.... I've
    always wanted to"

    There are a few lessons
    for all of us here:

    *Don't be arrogant.

    *Don't waste ammunition.

    *Whiskey makes you think you're
    smarter than you are.

    *Always make sure you know who is in

    *And finally, Don't screw around with
    old folks; they didn't get old by being
