The Kindly Veterinarian

Old Lady: I notice that when one of the horses was hit by the bull some sawdust came out.
Hemingway: Madame, that sawdust was placed in the horse by a kindly veterinarian to fill a void caused by the loss of other organs.
Old Lady: Thank you sir. You made me understand it all. but surely the horse could not permanently replace those organs with sawdust?
Hemingway: Madam, it is only a temporary measure, and one that no one can well approve of.
Old Lady: Yet I find it very cleanly. That is if the sawdust is pure and sweet.
Hemingway: Madame, no sweeter, purer sawdust ever stuffed a horse than that used in the Madrid ring.
