A dog goes in to the telegram office, says “I’d like to send a telegram to London. Here’s a card with the recipient’s details. I’d like the telegram to say:

“Woof woof woof woof woof woof woof.”

The attendant says, “No worries good sir. Just so you know, we charge by the word and we are having a promotion this month: eight words for the price of seven. So you could say 8 woofs for no extra charge. ”

“Why would I do that?” replied the dog. “That would just sound silly.”
