The emblem of our local amateur theatre is a gnu - so we see a play by gnus about every month. Does that count?

I knew this fellow who wanted a 'different' pet...so he looked all over, including wild animals parks for something interesting to adopt.
Finally, he discovered a place who had a Wildebeest who was getting on in years, and needed extra care and was in danger of being 'put down'.

Well, his sympathies were aroused, so, having a ranch with some space, he offered to adopt the poor thing and care for it.
It generally prospered with extra care, and seemed to be doing so well that the guy thought he'd try some interesting training...so he made a little obstacle course, and attempted to show his new pet how to jump a fence, run thru a tunnel, and slide down a slide. Sadly, this proved a bit much for the elderly old thing.....so he thought maybe some simple stuff like begging, rolling over, or playing dead would be easier. He tried for weeks, but the bewildered Wildebeest just stood there, waiting for feeding time and being uncooperative.

Being a kind soul, the man finally gave up and just petted 'ol Rover..(did I mention he had named it Rover?) and fed it and allowed it to wander happily about his yard for the rest of its days....

   The guy was, of course, mildly disappointed that the training had not worked out, but he managed to console himself when he remembered the old adage....




















"You can't teach an old Gnu dog tricks."

Is it OK to play with your gnus
If you're in the loo,
Or in lieu of the loo,
Would a bidet do?

Where is Donual to illustrate this poem when we need him?

It's okay to play with gnus, but you need to remember that gnus have a tendency to overindulge a bit. Gnus are frequently guilty of "PWI" (Posting While Intoxicated). If you are playing with a gnu and you say something to him and his reaction seems to have come from someplace way out in left-field, he's probably knee-walking drunk. He will look at his post in the morning and be all nice and apologetic.

"The wildebeest -also known as the gnu is a large antelope. The bull's deep grunts sound like a giant croaking frog. Because of its appearance and spirited behavior, Dutch settlers in South Africa named the animal wildebeest, which means wild beast."

Who would you want to play with this?

Tis true you can play with a gnu. Tis true you can play with a stewed gnu. Tis true a stewed gnu might rue something misconstrued and apologize in the morning. A gnu is the the same as you, who just wants to do right by you. It's the Golden Rule. Drink a little bud... chew a little cud... get down tonight.

Like George Carlin said, "Please Lord, I just want to be a cool gnu."

Know gnus is good gnus!

We fired our gnus but the British kept a-comin'
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago;
We fired once more and they began a-runnin'
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico!

He died with his six-gnues a-blazin'
But only three hairs on his chest!

What a harvest this thread is!
