Midnight Attack

by Thomas Bowling

I worked with a man named John Jacobs. He always wore shorts to work. One day he came in with his legs all scratched. They were a mess. I asked, “John, what happened to you?”

He said, “I was taking the garbage out last night. It was dark and I didn't turn a light on. In the darkness as I walked past a bush, a raccoon jumped out and attacked me. I tried to kick it away, but the more I kicked it, the more it scratched me. Finally, I got away and went in the house. By then my legs were all torn up. He really got me good.”

I asked, “Did you go to a doctor and get checked for rabies?”

He said, “I don't have rabies. This morning when I walked past the spot where I encountered the raccoon, I discovered that I had been kicking a Yucca plant.”

Yucca plants are a large ornamental that grows in Florida. It has three inch long barbs on the end of its leaves.

The moral of the story is, don't kick a Yucca.
