Goblins at Work

by leather

An old farmer lived near a goblin cave.  They played only mild tricks on him--moving his shoes and razor.  They favored pulling hair; however, he had none, so he found no reason to buy dogs to scare them off.  Instead, he wanted his money to go for steak and rum. 
But one day, they altered his shopping list, and he got tea and gum instead of steak and rum. 
That same day he bought two giant dogs with fangs!
