An old joke...

Paraglider and dog rescued from


A 42-year-old man who became entangled in a tree while paragliding with his pet chihuahua east of Melbourne was rescued by emergency services after a five-hour search.

Why don't blind people parachute?

The paraglider set off on a routine flight with his chihuahua strapped to him from Donna Buang Summit Road, near Warburton, just before 5pm (AEDT) yesterday.
But shortly after take-off the pilot became entangled in a tree and called 000 from his mobile phone.

Because it scares their Guide Dogs.

Police search and rescue officers climbed the tree, placed a harness around the man and carried him to safety an hour later.

Yes, I know the joke is a stereotype, but I couldn't help but think of it when I read this article. I mean, who paraglides with their pet chihuahua?
