The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

There was once a wolf in sheep’s clothing, it was sort of Khaki-colored, having been dyed. This wolf was drafted by the Army and became a Corporal.

One day while in the Big City on leave for the day, he saw a Beautiful Creature standing on the corner crying bitterly. “Why are you crying, Beautiful One,” asked the Corporal? “I am crying because I am lonely and also I am lost,” said the Beautiful Girl. “Where do you live?” asked the Corporal. “I live about ten miles out in the country, that is my father’s car at the curb and I feel certain once we get on the road I can find the way home, only I don’t know how to drive, “answered the Girl. “If you will only permit me, Beautiful One, I shall deem it a privilege to rive you home, “ said the Corporal, and in almost no time at all he had her home an in less time than that she was sound asleep in her own little bed.

And the Corporal hiked back to camp in the dead of the night.

The moral of this story is never stop to talk to beautiful girls who cry on street corners; they may want you to drive them home.
