Wandering aimlessly and starving, They are about to lie down and accept their death when all of a sudden Luis says………
“Hey Pepe, do you smell what I smell? Ees bacon, I theenk.”
“Si, Luis, eet sure smells like bacon. “
With renewed hope they struggle up the next sand dune, & there, in the distance, is a tree loaded with bacon.
There’s raw bacon, there’s fried bacon, candied bacon, smoked bacon … In fact there is every imaginable kind of cured pork.
“Pepe, Pepe, we are saved! Issa bacon tree.”
“Luis, maybe it’s a mirage? We’re in the desert, don’t forget.”
“Pepe, since when did you ever hear of a mirage that smells like bacon…its no mirage, it’s a bacon tree.”
And with that, Luis staggers towards the tree. He gets to about 5 meters away, Pepe crawling close behind, when suddenly a machine gun open fires on them and Luis drops like a wet sock. Luis, mortally wounded, warns Pepe with his dying breath,
“Pepe… Go back man, you was right, its not a bacon tree!”
“Luis, Luis mi amigo… What is it? “
“Pepe.. its not a bacon tree. Its
Its a ham bush!”
