The Wagon Train

The wagon train is lost and low on food. They have not seen anyone for days and their leader, Brother Pratt, is getting worried. Suddenly, he spots an old Jewish man sitting beneath a tree.

"Is there some place ahead where we can get food?" Brother Pratt asks.

"Vell, I tink so," the old man says, "but I wouldn't go up dat hill und down de udder side. Somevun tole me you'd run into a big bacon tree."

"A bacon tree?" asks Brother Pratt?

"Yah, a bacon tree. Vould I lie? Trust me. I vouldn't go dere."

Brother Pratt gathers the members of the wagon train around him, and tells everyone what the old man said. "So why did he say not to go there?," Brother Martin asks. But another pioneer says, "Oh, you know those Jewish people - they don't eat bacon."

So the wagon train goes up the hill and down the other side. Suddenly, Indians attack them from everywhere and massacre all except Brother Pratt, who manages to escape and get back to the old man. Near dead, Brother Pratt exclaims, "Why?You sent us to our deaths! We followed your route but there was no bacon tree, just hundreds of Indians who killed everyone but me."

The old Jewish man holds up his hand and says, "Oy, vait a minute." He quickly picks up an English-Yiddish dictionary and begins thumbing through it. "Oy Gevalt, I made myself such ah big mishtake! It vuzn't a bacon tree, it vuz a ham bush!"
