Just to Recap

He doesn't say anything about it at home. He goes weeks, nay, months without leaving a comment. But man...bungle the opening line to a joke and he is all OVER me.


But for the record: "A three legged dog rides into town. The streets are deserted as townspeople run in terror to their houses. The sheriff locks himself in side the jail house. The dog slams open the doors of the saloon and swaggers up to the bar. The bartender, one hand surripticiously on the rifle he keeps under the bar stutters, "Kin I help you, stranger?" The dog glances around the saloon, fixes the bartender with a look and growls, "I'm lookin' for the man who shot my paw".

See? "Paw" sounds like "pa" so if you're hearing the joke and not reading it it sounds like the dog (a talking dog, mind you, which is pretty funny to begin with) is looking for the man who shot his pa, unless you remember that he's a three legged dog so he's looking...forget it. This is why I never tell jokes.

That's pretty much the way I imagined it.
It's easy if you start with the punchline,and work your way backwards.

I would have messed it up at a dog with 3 legs.

Good, Anne.

Funny, huh?

Sage, sorry for the confusion.

Sling, it's even funnier when there's brown liquor involved.

Wills, exactly.

One of these days we need to mess up telling jokes together, Rosie.

You're welcome, Barb. I don't like confusing the new kids on the block. Or the old ones, for that matter.

Jon Stewart has been tanglin with Jim Cramer (Jon Steart of the Daily Show and Jim Cramer of Mad Money) so go to Huffington Post on the web and check out the article "Jim Cramer selling short and manipulating stocks".

Yeah, Anonyba, I've heard about that. Jon Stewart is much better at telling jokes.

I'm sorry, Mom, there was a lot of that going around yesterday.

LOL! I think the fact that you didn't get the joke for 51 freakin' years is even funnier than the joke itself! :)
