Tim went to buy a dog at the local pet store. The shop's owner looked frazzled.

"What's wrong?" Tim asked.

"This dog! He can speak but he only does it around me! I thought I'd make a killing with him but he won't talk around anyone else! It's driving me mad!"

Tim thought he was insane and said he'd give him a thousand dollars for the dog, just to patronize him.

"I'll take it! I want him outta here!"

Later in the car the dog turned to Tim and said, "Thanks. I think that pet shop owner's off his rocker!"

    This sounds like an old joke but it was inspired by the old Looney Tunes cartoon about the man who had a frog who would sing and dance with a cane and a top hat but wouldn't do it when anyone else was around.
