Saturday Question

On Saturdays I'll try to come up with some "out there" question that just makes you stop and think about something not so important. Think of it as a mini vacation. If you have any ideas drop me a line and we'll throw it in here. Who knows, it might be fun.

OK, here we go - do you remember your favorite joke to tell from when you were a kid? We loved to tell jokes, Daddy always encouraged us. And, well, I've always had a bit of a twisted sense of humor, so the reaction when I told THIS joke at the family dinner table was, ummm, mixed.

This little boy had a new puppy. He wanted to talk it for a walk. So his mom went to get the leash and the puppy and realized he really shouldn't go.

"Son, you'll have to wait. You can't take the puppy out right now, she's in heat. Wait for your father to come home."

So the little boy waited. As soon as his father came home he told him he wanted to take the puppy for a walk but Mom said he couldn't, 'cause she was in heat.

So his father went out to the garage and got a rag. Poured some gas on it and rubbed the puppy down. Then he put the leash on and told his son to go ahead - it's all fine now.

Off the little boy goes, happy as can be. He comes back a while later, but with just the leash.

His dad looks at him and asks, "Son, where's the puppy?"

"Oh, don't worry Dad. She ran out of gas a couple blocks back, but there's another dog pushin' her home."

I learned this joke at the ripe old age of 9. I told it to anyone that would listen. I had no idea what it was about I just loved the reaction I got when I told it.

My poor Mama.......

So tell me, do you remember your favorite childhood joke?

Why did the cookie crumble?

Because his mother was a wafer so long!

Learned that at Girl Scout Camp, when I was 19!

I see that not much as changed, Tammi. Although presumably you understand the joke now. ;P
