Black Betty (Ram A Lam)

“I remember when I picked that one up. I was out one night with a beauty named Betty. We were about to head back to my place, when this ram came out of nowhere. It wasn’t even a moment after I saw it that I blacked out.”

“What happened next?”

“Well, after I woke up, the ram was dead. My truck was also totaled, and Betty was walking around with a major league concussion. I called up my friend Earl and got him to pick me and the ram up. Betty walked home.”

“What did you do after that?”

“Well, I mounted the ram at the taxidermist and got the head home. I then went to see Betty, and her face was bruised. And that’s everyone now calls her Black Betty.”

  1. Ooooh clever … grooaan! I must confess I paused to dwell on the mental picture of the events taking place at the taxidermist but I got through… Well done.

  2. Miles, Fun story and well written. Poor Betty. I agree with Nan that she should have been able to ride home. Earl wasn’t much of a gentleman if he wouldn’t give her a lift. 😦 At least Betty healed which was more than the ram could do. Well done and I enjoyed the music. I’ll drop over and read your other story. πŸ™‚ —Susan

  3. Poor Betty – but if he is so egoistic that he goes by car with the ram and let the girl walk home, may be it is better for her the night ended not at his place πŸ™‚ .from now on I always think of your story when I hear this song , Really great.
    Liebe Grüße
