2 Jokes and an Update

Hey, here's what I say when people have contests on their blogs for when they need jokes to feel better:

When I was in basic training, there was one really stupid joke that got me through. When things were especially tough, I'd start laughing out of the blue and drill sgt. would say: What's so funny, Riggs?

Me: Drill Sgt., why'd the bird go to the doctor?

Drill: Shut up Riggs, drop and give me 20 [or something equally brilliant]

This exchange would happen every few days for the 8 weeks I was in Basic.
Finally at Basic Training graduation, the DS came up to me and asked: OK, Riggs, why'd the bird to to the doctor?

I said, very simply, "He needed tweetment."
Told you it was stupid! Still makes me laugh.

Trev came up with a new joke all on his own:

Why did the toilet paper go down the hill?
To get to the bottom.


knit seashore asked about how the mat works out (in the comments of that post). You’re right, kss, it’s VERY washable, that’s why I made it, to replace the disgusting, unwashable rug that came with the house. As to it’s being slippery or not, I put a few smears of fabric paint underneath the four corners to make it grippy.

I love that kid!

The funniest joke a kid ever told me was a fourth grader who said- "So, I went to bed reading a book about mufflers last night and when I woke up, I was exhausted."

I've made up several variations of my own including the recipe book and chili- but maybe this will give Trev an additional format for joke composing.

Funnily enough my eldest daughter made a toilet joke the other day.

"what do you call baby toys?"
"Toy - lets"

I can't believe I missed your mini contest...do'h!
