THE FAST RUNNER

DURING THE NINETIES, WHEN SHEEP WERE POPULAR IN AUSTRALIA,
THIS STORY DEVELOPED. THE BOSS OF A STATION TOLD A HAND
TO GO ROUND UP SOME OF THE SHEEP. THE BOSS DIDN'T TELL
HIM TO USE A HORSE AND A DOG.
WHEN THE BOSS CAME BACK, HE FOUND THE HAND HEAVING
AND PANTING, BUT THE SHEEP ALL ROUNDED UP, AND A HARE
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MOB. "YES," SAID THE BLOKE, "I
MUSTERED THEM ALL BY MYSELF, DIDN'T NEED NO DOG. AND
IT WASN'T NO TROUBLE AT ALL--NOT WITH THE -UNS; THEY
CAN'T RUN FOR NUTS! BUT THAT LITTLE BROWN BEGGAR IN
THE MIDDLE, I TELL YOU HE COULD RUN."
