I needed a good laugh today

A wealthy man decided to go on a safari in Africa.
> He took his faithful pet dachshund along for company.
> One day, the dachshund starts chasing butterflies and before long the
> dachshund discovers that he is lost.
> Wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction
> with the obvious intention of having lunch.
> The dachshund thinks, "I'm in deep trouble now!
> Then he noticed some bones on the ground close by and immediately
> settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat.
> Just as the leopard is about to leap, the dachshund exclaims loudly,
> "Boy, that was one delicious leopard.
> I wonder if there are any more around here?"
> Hearing this, the leopard halts his attack in mid-stride, as a look
> of terror comes over him, and slinks away into the trees.
> "Whew," says the leopard. "That was close. That dachshund nearly had
> me."
> Meanwhile, a monkey who had been! watching the whole scene from a
> nearby tree figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it
> protection from the leopard.
> So, off he goes. But the dachshund saw him heading after the leopard
> with great speed, and figured that something must be up.
> The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and
> strikes a deal for himself with the leopard.
> The leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here monkey,
> hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving canine."
> Now the dachshund sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back
> and thinks "What am I going to do now?"
> But instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his
> attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet and just when they get close
> enough
> to hear the dachshund says:
> "Where's that stupid monkey? I sent him off half an hour ago to bring
> me another leopard."
