Robin Nuttall said in rec.pets.dogs.behavior: Too many questions. It's like explaining a joke - either I told the story wrong or you're just not going to get it, no matter the explanation.

Fair enough, but I do wish I got it. It just made absolutely no sense at all to me and I do usually get jokes. Ah well...

I'll stop with "funny but true" stories.

No, don't do that! Maybe I'll get the next one.
Too funny! Darn I wish I had thought of that...

On behalf of those who did it - thanks! On behalf of me, thanks for being one of the apparent few who understood my telling of it.

I got it! and thought it funny. Not sure I got the logistics of it, but got the general gist.

You admitted you hadn't seen the original post, though. The follow-up discussions were confusing if that's all you heard.

Basically, this is the joke: To the perception of those watching, a dobie entered the tunnel and a min pin came out the other end.

And yes, that is very funny. :}

Thanks! Sometimes I use too many words.

And I just laughed out loud again, reading this. Did anybody videotape it?

I did get this part.
However, the practical side of me also did wonder how they carried the tunnel out with a person inside it. It seems like it would have been difficult. I finally decided they must have mostly dragged it while blocking the inside view from anyone watching.
So I got the joke but still tried to make sense of it.
