Miker asked, so here goes:

The Shaggy-dog story is one that goes on and on wity no particular point.

The original shaggy dog story was a joke--that to most who sit through it do not think it is very funny, but it gives a helluva rush to the teller.

It begins with a guy losing a shaggy dog and someone is hired to find it. The searcher goes here there and everyplace looking for it. At each place he goes, he has just missed finding the shaggy dog. When the teller finally comse to the conclusion, he usually finds the shaggy dog at some exotic location like a Tibetan Mountain Top. The punch line is, "You know, that dog wasn't so shaggy."

The SDS is a long story with no particular point.
