Upon entering a little country store, the stranger noticed a sign warning, "Danger" Beware of the dog!" posted on the glass door. Inside, he noticed a harmless old hound dog asleep on the floor beside the cash register. "Is that the dog folks are supposed to bewaare of?" he asked the owner. "Yep, that`s him," came the reply. The stranger couldn`t help but be amused. "that certainly doesn`t look like a dangerous dog to me. Why in the world would you post thath sign?" "Because," the owner explained, "Before I posted that sign, people kept tripping over him."
