A Tale of Tortoise and Snail

A tortoise went out for a few beers and, despite being severely worse for wear, decided to walk home through the rough part of town.

Halfway home he was set upon by four snails who beat him senseless, stole what little money he still had, and, as a final insult, they sprayed obscenities on his shell.

Utterly distraught, he was taken to the local police station where the fox inspector asked if he could remember anything about the assailants . “I don’t know!” He cried, “It all happened so fast!”

A Native American Applied For a Loan At a Bank.

A Native American Applied For a Loan At a Bank.

An old Native American wanted a loan for $500.

The banker pulled out the loan application.

“What are you going to do with the money?” he asks the Indian.

“Buy Silver, make jewelry, and sell it,” was the response.

“What have you got for collateral?”

“Don’t know collateral,” replied the Indian

“Well, that’s something of value that would cover the cost of the loan.

“Have you got any vehicles?”

“Yes. 1949 Chevy pickup,” replied the Indian

The banker shook his head, “How about livestock?”

“Yes, I have a horse,” replied the Indian

“How old is it?” the banker asks.

“Don’t know, has no teeth,” replies the Indian

Finally, the banker decided to make the $500 loan.

Several weeks later the old man was back in the bank. He pulled out a roll of bills, “Here to pay.” he said. He then handed the banker the money to pay his loan off.

“What are you going to do with the rest of that money?” the banker asks.

“Put in hogan”, replied the Indian

“Why don’t you deposit it in my bank,” the banker asked.

“Don’t know deposit,” replied the Indian

“You put the money in our bank and we take care of it for you. Whenever you want to use it, you can withdraw it.”

The old Indian leaned across the desk and asks the banker…

“What you got for collateral?”
