There are several race horses staying in a stable. One of them starts to
boast about his track record. "Of the last 15 races I've won 8."
Another horse breaks in: "Well of the last 27 races, I've won 19!!"
"Oh that's good, but of the last 36 races I've one 28!", says another,
flicking his tail.
At this point they notice that a greyhound dog has been sitting there
listening. "I don't mean to boast", says the greyhound "but of MY last
90 races I've won 88!"
The horses are clearly amazed.
"Wow", says one, after a hushed silence, "A talking dog!"
