The Ventriloquist

A ventriloquist walked into town and saw a Texas rancher sitting on his porch with his dog.

The ventriloquist said, “Hey, cool dog. Mind if I speak to him?”

Rancher said, “I suppose you can, but the dog ain’t gonna talk back!”

The ventriloquist said, “Hey dog, how’s it going?”

The dog said, “Doin’ alright”

The rancher showed an extreme look of shock.

The ventriloquist said, “Is this your owner?” (pointing at rancher)

The dog said, “Yep.”

The ventriloquist said, “How’s he treat you?”

The dog said, “Real good. He walks me twice a day, feeds me great food, and takes me to the lake once a week to play.”

A look of disbelief fell upon the rancher’s face.

The ventriloquist said, “Mind if I talk to your horse?”

Rancher said, “The horses don’t talk!”

The ventriloquist said, “Hey horse, how’s it goin?”

The horse said, “Cool.”

The rancher now has an even wilder look of shock.

The ventriloquist said, “Is this your owner?” (pointing at rancher)

The horse said, “Yep.”

The ventriloquist said, “How’s he treat you?”

The horse said, “Pretty good. Thanks for asking. He rides me regularly, brushes me down often, and keeps me in the barn to protect me from the elements.”

The rancher was completely overwhelmed with amazement.

The ventriloquist said, “Mind if I talk to your sheep?”

With a nervous stutter the rancher replied, “Th-Th-Them sheep ain’t nothin but liars!”
