Just before I heard this I had been reading some jokes and just read this... too much of a coincidence! :)

"One day, in a peaceful forest, a fly buzzed over a stream.

In the stream, a salmon was swimming, and it looked up and saw the fly. It thought to itself, “If that fly would drop down about a half an inch, I’d be able to jump up, catch it, and I’d have myself something to eat.”

Alongside the stream, a bear was standing. The bear looked at the fly, and thought to itself, “If that fly would drop down about a half an inch, that salmon would jump up to catch it, and I could jump out, snag that salmon, and I’d have myself something to eat.”

Across the stream, up a steep slope, a hunter was hidden in the brush. The hunter looked at the fly, and thought to himself, “If that fly would drop down about a half an inch, that salmon would jump up to catch it, the bear would jump up to catch the salmon, and I could jump up, shoot the bear, and I’d have myself a new trophy.”

Hidden in the grass behind the hunter was a mouse. The mouse looked at the fly, and thought to itself, “If that fly would drop down about a half an inch, the salmon would jump up to catch it, the bear would jump up to catch the salmon, the hunter would jump up to shoot the bear, the sandwich in the hunter’s pocket would fall out, and I’d have myself something to eat.”

A bit higher up the slope, on a jutting rock, sat a pussy cat. The pussy cat looked down at the fly, and thought to itself, “If that fly would drop down about a half an inch, the salmon would jump up to catch it, the bear would jump up to catch the salmon, the hunter would jump up to shoot the bear, the sandwich in the hunter’s pocket would fall out, the mouse would hop over to get the sandwich, I could leap down on it, and I’d have myself something to eat.”

At that moment, the fly dropped down about a half an inch. The salmon leapt up and caught the fly, the bear leapt out and snagged the salmon, the hunter jumped up and shot the bear, the mouse hopped out and started to eat the hunter’s sandwich, and the pussycat leapt down to catch the mouse…but it missed. It rolled down the slope, and fell into the stream.

Moral of the Story: A lot of things have to happen for a pussycat to get wet." 😄
