Day #510 PHC Joke Show

Saturday evening I listened to the Prairie Home Companion show on Public Radio. You’ve probably heard of Garrison Keillor, even if you’ve never listened to him. Once or twice a year they have a Joke Show. The entire show -- the whole two hours -- is chock full of the silliest jokes imaginable. The jokes are usually grouped:
    • knock-knock jokes
Knock-knock. Who’s there? 
Sanctuary much!
    • change-a-light-bulb jokes
How many surrealists does it take to change a light bulb?
A penguin.
    • animal jokes
Why was the cow crying?
Because she had a moo disorder.
    • chicken jokes
Why did the chicken cross the Moibus strip?
To get to the same side.
And then there are the miscellaneous jokes, such as
    • What do you call an existentialist breakfast cereal?
       Raisin d’Etre
    • Why didn’t the oyster give up her pearl?
       She was shellfish.
You gotta love the folks who come up with these. 
BEEattitude for Day #510:
       Blessed are those who laugh hard every day, for they shall spread joy and it will bounce back at them.
         “Hey, bees, I think you used that attitude before, or something a lot like it.”

         “Buzz off, Frannie. we like that one.”

I love the jokes and have missed the blog for the week-end. Was at Katie's and really didn't get online - had so much fun catching up. But back at the office this morning and reading the last few days. As always the blog starts my day with a smile!
