Daily Joke: Two men were lost in the desert

Two guys were lost in a desert. They were hungry and thirsty, and kept seeing water in the distance. But every time they approached, they found it to be merely a mirage.

Then one of them saw a tree in the distance. It had slices of bacon hanging from every branch. Food at last!

“Look,” he said to his companion. “A bacon tree. Where there’s food there’s got to be water as well.”

“No, it’s just another mirage.”

“No, I can see it clearly. It’s not a mirage. It’s an actual tree. I’m going to get some food.”

And so he took off, running towards the bacon tree.

But as he neared the tree, there was the sound of rapid gun fire coming from behind it. The guy was badly wounded, but before he died, he yelled to his companion: “Run! It’s not a bacon tree, it’s a hambush!”
