Country Cooking

A group of country friends from the Cottonwood Baptist Church wanted to gather together on a regular basis to socialize, and play games.

The lady of the house was to prepare the meal. When it came time for Al and Janet to be the hose, Janet wanted to outdo all the others. Janet decided to have a mushroom smothered steak, but, mushrooms are expensive. She then told her husband, "No, mushrooms, they are too high!"

He said, "Why don't you go down in the pasture and pick some of those mushrooms? There are plenty in the creek bed."

She said, "No, some wild mushrooms are poisonous."

He said, "Well, I see varmints eat them and they are okay."

So, Janet decided to give it a try. She picked a bunch, washed, sliced, and diced them for her smothered steak. Then she went out on the back porch and gave Ole' spot a double handful.

The meal was a great success, and Janet even hired a helper lady from her town to help her serve. She had a white apron and a fancy little cap could on her head.

After everyone had finished, they relaxed, socialize, and played phase 10 Mexican Train Dominoes. About then, the helper lady from town, came in and whispered in Janet's ear, Mrs. Williams, Ole' Spot just died..."

Janet went into hysterics. After she finally calmed down, she called the doctor and told him what had happened. The doctor said, "That's bad, but I think we can take care of it. I will call for an ambulance and I will be there as quick as possible. We'll give everyone enemas and we will pump out everyone's stomach. Everything will be fine. Just keep them calm."

Soon they could hear the sirens as the ambulance was coming down the road. The EMTs and the doctor had their suitcases, syringes, and a stomach pump.

One by one, they took each person into the bathroom gave him an enema, and pump out there stomach. After the last one was finished, the doctor came out and said, "I think everything will be fine now." Then he left.

They were all looking pretty weak sitting around the living room, about this time, the helper lady came in and said, "You know, that fellow that ran over Ole' Spot never even stopped."
