  • Bacon Tree

    A group of legionnaires strode through the scorching desert.

    They hadn't had water for three days and hadn't eaten for a week
    but they did not crack, and kept marching solidly on. Suddenly one
    of them froze, "Psssst" said he. His companion halted, and
    strained their eyes to where the first legionnaire was pointing.

    "Le voila", said he, "Regardez, mes amis, isn't zat a bacon tree
    on ze 'orizon"? And sure enough, there it stood, proudly and
    defiant in the middle of the desert, a true bacon tree.

    Slowly they crept forward towards the mystery object far off. Inch
    by inch, centimetre by centimetre, until they were within a
    stone's throw of the bacon tree.

    Even nearer they crept, and suddenly, a shot rang out, dropping
    one of the legionnaires in his tracks. The other legionnaires hit
    the ground as bullets thudded into the sand around them. The other
    two returned fire, and gave first aid to their wounded companion.
    Even as they bandaged him, they could hear his faint voice -

    "Zat was no bacon tree," he gasped, "Zat was an 'am bush."

            Ugh. Groan was the right epitaph. But I did copy it and it will go to the Auld Folk on Monday, Thanks.
