Humour — 26 May 2014

…are holed up in a derelict house deep in the Wild West waiting for an attack by marauding Indians.

The Lone Ranger turns to Tonto and asks him, “How far away are they?”

Tonto gets down on his knees and puts his ear to the ground. There’s silence for about ten seconds, then he gets up and says, “They’re about four miles away.”

Impressed, the Lone Ranger asks, “How many of them are there?”

Tonto puts his ear to the ground again, another silence, and then says “About forty, ten on horseback, the rest on foot.”

Incredulous, the Lone Ranger asks, “Are they armed?”

Tonto puts his ear to the ground again, another silence, and then says “Half are armed with guns, half with bows and arrows.”

Astonished, the Lone Ranger turns to Tonto and says “That’s amazing. How can you know all that just from putting your ear to the ground?”

Tonto replies “I can see under the door.”
