Bad Joke Wednesday

Before we get started... for you newer folks, I should point out... It is Bad Joke Wednesday. The name is accurate. These aren't supposed to be good jokes. They're terrible. They're the worst. That's why I like 'em. I started this little tradition hopin' that Spacebunny would, on occasion, remember some of these horrific dogs... and irritate Vox with them. Whether or not that actually happens is now irrelevant apparently... as when ever I've missed a wednesday I've been guilted and chastized somethin' aweful... so the curse I ment to cast upon Vox has backfired... and now each Wednesday I find myself here typing this stuff up...

-What do you get when you cross a dog with an elephant?

A very nervous postman.

- How do little people get to work?

A mini van.

-What do you give a sick pig?


-What is the easiest way to count a herd of cattle?

Use a cowculator !

-Why couldn't the foal talk?

Because he was a little horse...

And for Waterboy... I offer the Holy Grail... The Original Shaggy Dog.

In the days of yore, a knight was on his way to do something terribly important, riding his horse into the ground to get to his destination as fast as possible.

After being ridden too hard for too long, his horse became lame, and seeing a small town ahead he headed straight for the stables there.

"I must have a horse!" he cried "The life of the King depends upon it!"The stablekeeper shook his head. "I have no horses," he said.

"They have all been taken in the service of your King."

"You must have something - a pony, a donkey, a mule, anything at all?" the knight asked.

"Nothing..... unless.... no, I couldn't"

The knight's eyes lit up. "Tell me!"

The stablekeeper leads the knight into the stable. Inside is a dog, but no ordinary dog. This dog is a giant, almost as large as the horse the knight was riding. But it is also the filthiest, shaggiest, smelliest, mangiest dog that the knight has ever seen.

Swallowing, the knight said "I'll take it. Where is the saddle?"The stablekeeper walked over to a saddle near the dog and started gasping for breath, holding the walls to keep himself upright. "I can't do it." he told the knight."You must give me the dog!" cried the knight. "Why can't you?"

"I just couldn't send a knight out on a dog like this."
