What's green, has many holes and if it falls on top of you
it will crush you?
Have you got it? Do you know? No? Ok…I will tell you…
...a golf course, of course! Duhhh!
You didn’t find it funny? Oh well, you had to be there.
Absurd, off the wall jokes are my thing. The Goons are just so abstract. Monty Python equally so. You either like it or you don’t. There’s no middle ground. And there’s no getting used to it. You either get it or you don’t.
How about this one?
How do you get a dog to stop barking in the front garden?
You put it in the back garden off course!
I can just see you with your hands on your head, eyes rolling 🙂
Then there’s this one from The Goons:
Bluebottle: Eccles, what time is it?
Eccles: It's 8 o'clock.
Bluebottle: How do you know it's 8 o'clock?
Eccles: A nice man wrote it down on a piece of paper
for me this morning.
(disbelief...a slight pause)
Bluebottle: Why have you got it written down on a
piece of paper, Eccles?
Eccles: So that if anybody asks me for the time then
I show it to them.
Bluebottle: ...but Eccles, what if it isn't 8 o'clock
when they ask you?
Eccles: Then I don't show it to them.
Bluebottle: Eccles, how do you know when it's 8 o'clock?
Eccles: I've got it written here on a piece of paper.
Perfect logic, don’t you think? Can’t be faulted 🙂
Absurd and abstract.
You have to be there…
What kinda of jokes and humour do you like?
