Topic: long but kinda worth it

A group of country neighbors wanted to get together on a
regular basis and socialize. As a result, about 10 couples
formed a dinner club and agreed to meet for dinner at a
different neighbors' houses each month. Of course the lady
of the house was to prepare the meal.

When it came time for Don and Dawn Chassell to have the
dinner at their house, like most women, Dawn wanted to
outdo all the others and prepare a meal that was the best
that any of them had ever lapped a lip over.

A few days before the big event, Dawn got out her cook
book and decided to have mushroom smothered steak.
When she went to the store to buy some mushrooms, she
found the price for a small can was more than she wanted
to pay. She then told her husband, "We aren't going to have
mushrooms because they are too expensive." He said, "Why
don't you go down in the pasture and pick some of those
mushrooms? There are plenty of them right in the creek bed."

She said, "No, I don't want to do that, because I have heard
that wild mushrooms are poison."

He then said, "I don't think so. I see the varmints eating them
all the time and it never has affected them."

After thinking about this, Dawn decided to give this a try and
got in the pickup and went down in the pasture and picked
some. She brought the wild mushrooms back home and washed
them, sliced and diced them to get them ready go over her
smothered steak. Then she went out on the back porch and got
Ol' Spot's (the yard dog) bowl and gave him a double handful.
She even put some bacon grease on them to make them tasty.
Ol' Spot didn't slow down until he had eaten every bite. All
morning long Dawn watched him and the wild mushrooms
didn't seem to affect him, so she decided to use them.

The meal was a great success, and Dawn even hired a lady
from town to come out and help her serve. She had on a
white apron and a little cap on her head. It was first class.

After everyone had finished they all began to kick back and
relax and socialize. The men were visiting and the women
started to gossip a bit.

About this time the lady from town came in from the kitchen
and whispered in Dawn's ear. She said, "Mrs. Chassel, Spot
just died."

With this news, Dawn went into hysterics. After she finally
calmed down, she called the doctor and told him what had

The doctor said, "It's bad, but I think we can take care of it.
I will call for an ambulance and I will be there as quick as I
can get there. We will pump out everyone's stomach and
everything will be fine. Just keep them all there and keep
them calm."

It wasn't long until they could hear the wail of the siren as the
ambulance was coming down the road. When they got there,
the EMTs got out with their suitcases and a stomach pump
and the doctor arrived shortly thereafter. One by one they
took each person into the master bedroom and pumped out
their stomach. After the last one was finished, the doctor
came out and said, I think everything will be fine now, and
he left.

They were all looking pretty peaked sitting around the living
room, and about this time the town lady came in and said,
"You know, that fellow that ran over Ol' Spot never even
