Goat Jumping into Deep Hole
Two men were walking through the woods and come across a very big deep hole. “Wow…that looks deep.” One replied,”Sure does… toss a few pebbles in there and we will see how deep this hole is.” Then they pick up a few pebbles and throw them in and wait… no noise “Geeez. That is really deep… here.. throw one of these great big rocks down there. Those should make a noise.” After that, they pick up a couple football-sized rocks and toss them into the hole and wait… and wait. but no noise they heard.

Wow.. They were really impressed with how deep hole it was. They look at each other in amazement. One gets a determined look on his face and says, “Hey…over here in the weeds, there’s a railroad tie. Help me carry it over here. When we toss railroad tie in this hole, it’s must make some noise.”

The two men drag the heavy tie over to the hole and heave it in. But, not a sound comes from the hole. Suddenly, out of the nearby woods, a goat appears, running like the wind. It rushes toward the two men, then right past them, running as fast as its legs will carry it. Suddenly it leaps in the air and into the hole. The goat disappeared into the deep hole.
