Two men had been lost in the desert for weeks and were at death’s door. As they stumbled on, they suddenly noticed a tree off in the distance.
As they got closer, they saw that the tree was draped with bacon. There was smoked bacon, crispy bacon, and even life-giving juicy nearly-raw bacon.
“Oh my God!” said the first man. “It’s a bacon tree! We’re saved!”
“You’re right!” said the second.
So the first man ran up to the tree salivating at the prospect of food, but when he got within five feet of the tree, there was the sound of machine gun fire, and he was shot down in a hail of bullets.
His friend quickly dropped to the ground and called across to the dying man, “What just happened?!”
With his dying breath the slain man called out, “It’s not a Bacon Tree… It’s a Ham Bush!”
