At the height of the arms race, the Americans and Russians realized that, if they continued, they would someday end up destroying the world. So they sat down and decided to settle the whole dispute with a dogfight.
The negotiators agreed that each country would take five years to develop the best
fighting dog they could. The dog that won the fight would earn its country the right to
rule the world. The losing side would have to lay down its arms.
The Russians found the biggest, meanest Dobermans and rottweilers in the world. They bred
them together and then crossed their offspring with the meanest Siberian wolves. They
selected only the biggest, strongest puppy from each litter, killed all the other puppies
and fed the lone dog all of the milk. They used steroids and trainers in their quest for
the perfect killing machine, until, after the five years were up, they had a dog that
needed iron prison bars on his cage. Only the trainers could handle this beast.
When the day of the big fight arrived, the Americans showed up with a strange animal: It
was a nine-foot-long Dachshund. Everyone felt sorry for the Americans. No one else thought
this weird animal stood a chance against the growling beast in the Russian camp. The
bookies predicted the Russians would win in less than a minute.
The cages were opened. The dachshund waddled toward the center of the ring. The Russian
dog leapt from his cage and charged the giant wiener-dog. As he got to within an inch of
the American dog, the dachshund opened its jaws and swallowed the Russian beast in one
bite. There was nothing left but a small bit of fur from the killer dog’s tail.
The Russians approached the Americans, shaking their heads in disbelief. “We do not
understand. Our top scientists and breeders worked for five years with the meanest,
biggest Dobermans and rottweilers. They developed a killing machine.”
“Really?” the Americans replied. “We had our top plastic surgeons working
for five years to make an alligator look like a dachshund!”
