*As the stranger enters a Tennessee country store he spots a sign saying “Beware of Dog” inside, he sees a harmless old hound asleep in the middle of the floor. “Is that the dog were supposed to be aware of?” He asked the owner. “That’s him”, comes the reply. “He doesn’t look dangerous to me. Why would you post that sign?” “Before I posted that sign, people kept tripping over him.”
* A couple took a drive for couple hours trying to escape the big city.. winding down back roads and narrow country lanes, they came to a little crossroads town shaking their heads at how quiet and peaceful everything was they entered the town’s tiny general store. “The country is so nice and quiet”, they said to the store owner, “it’s so much better than life in the city. Don’t you agree?” “Can’t rightly say”, replied the store owner. “Never lived in the country, always lived right here in town”.
