The Bacon Tree
Two Mexicans are stuck in the desert, wandering aimlessly and close to
death. They are close to just lying down and waiting for the inevitable,
when all of a sudden.......
'Hey Jose, do you smell what I smell. Ees bacon.'
'Si, Luis eet smells like bacon to meee...'
So, with renewed strength, they struggle up the next sand dune, and
there, in the distance, is a tree loaded with bacon.
There's raw bacon, dripping with moisture, there's fried bacon, back
bacon, double smoked bacon... every imaginable kind of cured pig meat.
'Jose, Jose, we is saved. 'Eees a bacon tree.'
'Luis, are you sure ees not a meerage? We ees in the desert don't
'Jose when deed you ever hear of a meerage that smell like bacon.... ees
no meerage, ees a bacon tree'.
And with that... Luis Races towards the tree. He gets to within 5
metres, Jose following closely behind, when all of a sudden, a machine
gun opens up, and Luis is cut down in his tracks. It is clear he is
mortally wounded but, a true friend that he is, he manages to warn Jose
with his dying breath.
'Jose... go back man, you was right ees not a bacon tree.'
'Luis Luis mi amigo.... what ees it?
'Jose... ees not a bacon tree...
Eees a ham bush!!
