There is a gentlemen who comes into one of my libraries. He’s a little strange and a little off-putting for some people. But I’ve come to really look forward to Sunday mornings (when he arrives). This is because he always stops by the desk to offer his latest joke. It only occurred to me a few Sunday’s ago that it might be fun to start keeping track of his jokes:
Q: Did you hear about the latest pirate movie?
A: It’s rated ARRGGH…
Q: How do you fix a broken tomato?
A: With tomato paste!
Q: How do you make “7” even?
A: Take away the “s”!
Q: Why did the parrot cross the road?
A: It was the chicken’s day off!
And today’s was in honor of St. Patrick’s Day:
Q: How many shamrocks was the Leprechaun able to eat on an empty stomach?
A: One. After that his stomach wasn’t empty anymore!
I should also mention that the exclamation points at the end of the “answers” are indicative of the excited tone he has while offering the answer. He’s really one of my favorite regulars.
