Jack strode into ‘John’s Stable’ looking to buy a horse.
“Listen here” said John, “I’ve got just the horse you’re looking for. The only thing is, he was trained by an interesting fellow. He doesn’t go and stop the usual way. The way to get him to stop is to scream ‘heyhey’, and the way to get him to go is to scream ‘Thank God’.”
Jim nodded his head, “Fine with me, can I take him for a test run?”
Jim was having the time of his life on the test run. He was speeding down the dirt road when he suddenly saw a cliff up ahead.
“Stop!” screamed Jim, but the horse kept on going.
No matter how much he tried he could not remember the words to get it to stop. “Yoyo” screamed Jim, but the horse just kept on speeding ahead.
It was 5 feet from the cliff when Jim suddenly remembered and screamed, “Heyhey!” The horse skidded to a halt just 1 inch from the cliff.
Jim could not believe his good fortune. He looked up to the sky, raise his hands in the air, breathed a deep sigh of relief and said with conviction, “Thank God.”
