    'the Mexican and the Bicycle.'

    A policeman was working on the border between Mexico and the United States. One day, a Mexican arrived on a bicycle. The man had a large bag on his back, and the policeman was sure that he was smuggling something, so he asked the man to open the bag. (What do you think was inside?)

    Inside the bag there was only sand. The policeman poured all the sand onto the ground but there was nothing else in the bag, so he let the man go.

    For the next three years this happened twice a week. The Mexican arrived on a bicycle carrying a bag of sand. The policeman was more and more sure that the man was smuggling something, but he could never catch him.

    Years later the policeman retired. One night he was drinking in a bar when the Mexican came in. The policeman bought the Mexican a drink. They were sitting and talking together when the policeman said: ‘You can tell me now. I’m retired and it doesn’t matter anymore. I know that you were smuggling for three years. What was it?’

    The Mexican smiled and said...

















    "Bicycles."

    In 1986, Peter Davies was on vacation in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University.

    On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully. He got down on one knee, inspected the elephant's foot, and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot.

    The elephant turned to face the man, and stared at him for several tense moments. Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away. Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.

    Twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Peter and his son Cameron were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.

    Remembering the encounter in 1986, Peter could not help wondering if this was the same elephant. He summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing, and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.

    Probably wasn't the same elephant.

    This is for everyone who sends those heart-warming bullsh!* stories on social media.
