Here's my Granddad's Waterloo cup / Hare coursing Joke.

Two Irishmen came to Altcar to watch the Waterloo cup. They stood on the public bank and the beaters encouraged a single, strong hare on to the course. Old puss passed the slipper, was given fair law, and the dogs were slipped and they accelerated towards the hare

The hare turned just once then unexpectedly stopped in the middle of the course. The poor thing then keeled over and lay motionless on the ground. The two greyhounds stopped, looked at each other rather puzzled, and sniffed each others bums.

One of the aforementioned Irish gentlemen ran on to the course towards the hare. He crouched over it, lifted its head gently, and from a small bottle poured a small amount of an odourless green liquid into his mouth.

Immediately the hare was invigorated and restored! He jumped up and was off again at an even greater pace than before. Despite being given sherry, eggs AND baked beans before the race, his two pursuers stood no chance this time. In fact the distance between the pursued and the pursuer increased with every stride. The hare was actually able to turn his head and WAVE at the greyhounds behind him, while loosing them completely.

The Irishmen walked off the course and back to the public bank and his freind was, of course, astonished.

"That was amazing," he said; "what exactly did you give to those dogs?."

He replied, "Hair restorer with a permanent wave."
