Harv claimed to have a talking dog and had gathered up a group of potential buyers for a demonstration.

He asked the dog, "How does sandpaper feel?"

"Ruff!" the dog replied.

"Very good. What do you put on top of a house?"

"Roof!" the dog replied.

The assembled crowd was suspicious at this point.

"Who was the first president of the USA?"

The dog just stared blankly.

Harv repeated the question. Still the dog stared in bewilderment.

"You're a fraud!" the departing crowd screamed.

Harv sat down, head in hands.

Minutes later the dog replied, "Dammit! It was George Washington!"

    This is loosely based on an old joke that I could barely remember anything about it so I pretty much rewrote it.

    It’s a good joke. We both laughed out loud. Thanks for brightening up my breakfast, Christopher, on the first day of total lockdown here in England!

    Thanks, Neville and Jamie. Not much to laugh about here, I'm afraid. We've become a banana republic and this election is being stolen in full view of the world. The fraud is unbelievable.

    Was that the joke about the child who didn’t speak until he was 4 and immediately spoke in full sentences?
