A New Pet

2006-07-02 22:47

  A single man wanted someone to help him with the household chores, so he decided to get a pet to help out. He went to the local pet shop and asks the owner for advice on a suitable animal. The owner suggested a dog, but the man said, “Nah, dogs can't do dishes.” The owner then suggested a cat, but the man said, “Nah, cats can't do the ironing”

  Finally the owner suggests a centipede, “This is the perfect pet for you. It can do anything!” OK, the man thought, I'll give it a try, so he bought it and took it home. Once home he told the centipede to wash the dishes. The centipede looks over and there are piles and piles of dirty dishes that look to be a month old. Five minutes later, all the pots are washed, dried and put away. Great, thought the man.

  Now he told the centipede to do the dusting and vacuuming. 15 minutes later the house is spotless. Wow, thought the man, so he decided to try another idea. “Go down to the corner and get me the evening paper,” he told the centipede, and off it went.

  15 minutes later, the centipede hadn't returned. 30 minutes later and still no centipede. 45 minutes and the man was sick of waiting, so he got up and went out to look for the centipede.

  As he opened the front door, there on the step was the centipede. “Hey, whatcha' doing there? I sent you out for the paper 45 minutes ago and now I find you out here without the paper! What gives?”

  “Hold on a minute!” said the centipede, “I'm still putting on my boots!!!”
