Intro. Keeping the

Intro. Keeping the wheels turning... A guy is riding his bike through the farmlands in the Freestate and he sees a sign in front of a farm gate: ‘Talking Dog For Sale ‘ He rides down to the house and rings the bell. The owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador sitting there. ‘You talk?’ he asks. ‘Ya,’ the Lab replies. After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says ‘So, what’s your story?’ The Lab looks up and says, ‘Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so... I told the secret service. In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.’ ‘I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running... But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn’t getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.’ ‘I got married, had a litter of puppies, and now I’m just retired.’ The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog. ‘A hundred Rand,’ the farmer says. ‘A Hundred buck! This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?’ ‘Because he talks rubbish! He’s never been out of the yard!
