Larry, a local football star, was jogging down
the street when he saw a building on fire. A
lady was standing on a third-story ledge holding
her pet cat in her arms.
“Hey lady!” yelled Larry. “Throw me the cat!”
“No!” she cried. “It’s too far!”
“I play football, I can catch him!”
The smoke was pouring from the windows, and
finally the woman waved to Larry, kissed her cat
goodbye, and tossed it down to the street.
Larry kept his eye on the cat as it came plunging
down toward him.
The feline bounced off an awning and Larry ran
into the street to catch it. He jumped six feet
into the air and made a spectacular, one-handed
catch. The crowd that had gathered to watch the
fire broke into cheers.
Larry did a little dance, lifted the cat above his
head, wiggled his knees back and forth…
…then spiked the cat into the pavement.
