This guy was so lonely that he decided life would be more
fun if he had a pet. So he went to the pet store and told
the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet.
After some discussion he finally bought a centipede (100-leg
bug), which came in a little white box to use for his house.
He took the box home, found a good location for the box, and
decided he would start off by taking his new pet to the bar
for a drink. So, he asked the centipede in the box, "Would
you like to go to Frank's place with me and have a beer?"
But there was no answer from his new pet. This bothered him
a bit, but he waited a few minutes and then asked him again,
"How about going to the bar and having a drink with me?"
But again there was no answer from his new friend and pet.
So he waited a few minutes more, thinking about the
situation. He decided to ask him one more time, this time
putting his face up against the centipede's house and
shouting, "Hey, in there! Would you like to go to Frank's
place and have a drink with me?"
A little voice came out of the box: "I heard you the first
time! I'm putting my shoes on!"
