Joke 212

22 Oct

An old man approached a young stranger in the post office and asked, “Sir, would you address this postcard for me?”

The young man gladly did so, and then offered to write a short note for the old fellow. Finally the stranger asked, “Now, is there anything else I can do for you?”

The old man thought a moment and said, “Yes, at the end could you add, ‘Please excuse the sloppy handwriting’?”

    Young man finds elderly, old man crying uncontrollably on park bench.

    “what ever is the matter?” asks the young man.

    “It’s my twenty two year old lingerie model wife. All she wants is sex sex sex, morning noon and night, I can’t take it any more! Its horrible”

    “Horrible!” shrieks young man “What do you mean “Horrible”

    “Horrible! I can’t remember where I live”

    I have seventeen years of poetry from my “Box of shame” to type up. I think this makes us even.

    I can’t find a decent Gary Larson site, they are all about his books. Which made me tink why publish for free on the web when when you should be selling them for money, rather cynical I know but it inspired me to write my own verse.

      I believe he doesn’t write them any more so perhaps that’s why no web presence. Bit unfair on us, though 😦

    I didn’t know that. Yes, you are right it is a shame, I can’t drive past a field of cows and not wonder if they do stand on their back legs after we have gone past.

    I like that twist! Thought the young man was going to respond by saying something like, ‘O postcard, how elegantly flat thou art, and how pleasing thy shape …’
