A miserly old woman was always trying to find ways of saving money and came upon the idea of feeding her husband cheap dog food.
It took a few days for him to get used to it but when she insisted it was the best minced steak he had no reason to be suspicious.
Three months went by when one afternoon she received a phone call from the local hospital to say her husband had been brought in following an accident. She arrived at casualty 20 minutes later and asked the doctor on duty how he was and what had happened.
“Just a few broken bones, really. An odd accident though. It seems he was hit by a car when he suddenly sat down in the middle of the road and tried to lick his backside.”
