As The World Spins

I'm beginning to think that my world will spin every time a storm moves in. I went to my mom's, got pumped full of drugs and sympathy, and have high hopes that any minute now the world will put me back on solid ground.

One year at girls camp we sat around the fire telling our favorite jokes. (We didn't get the posh girs camp experience. We roughed it...every single year...just us and the bears. Really, there were bears.)

I heard a joke that had me laughing for hours...days...even years. It's my favorite joke ever and whenever I tell it to someone I still laugh...and laugh. (I may be the only one who ever laughs at this joke...but hey, that's enough for me.)

Here you go...my favorite joke...

Ask me if I'm a red fire engine.

(Go ahead and ask, "Are you a red fire engine?")

Did you ask?

My response is this:

No.

Just that...no.

Isn't it great?

Happy Friday friends.

Oh sweetie, you need some new jokes.

Wanna hear my favorite?

What do you call 2 banana peels by the bed?

Go ahead and guess. I'll be back later with the answer.

I don't get it. Do you have to tell someone ahead of time to spontaneously ask if you're a red fire engine, and then you answer NO, and then everyone laughs. Is that how it goes? Planed spontaneity. Interesting concept.

Only at girl's camp. Where every moment is hilarity gone wild.

I don't know any jokes. I am jokeless. Bereft. Impoverished. Hopeless.

So ask me if I'm a green turtle. Go on. Just ask me. I dare you.

I'm older than dirt and didn't get the girl's camp experience. But Jessica did. One year she got up early in the morning and went to the bathroom. When she started to come out, there was a huge bull moose standing in the way. The counselor in the bishopric was awake and taking pictures of the moose and trying to get the attention of the girls in their tents but no one would wake up and no one knew Jess was trapped in the bathroom. Only Jess would have this happen to her.

Your joke reminds me a lot of the joke that Jess used to tell when she was 2 or three. It makes no sense whatsoever but we would laugh every single time she told it. She was so darn cute and it make perfect sense to her 3 year old blonde brain.
Ready? Here goes-

Why did the duck cross the road?

Because pants had feet in them.

I know. I didn't get it then either, but for some reason we found it hilarious.

Amy- Pick me, Pick me! I know the answer. But I'll wait so others can guess.

David-
1. You crack me up.
2. Jess says you need a nap
3. Are you a green turtle?

I thought it was funny :)

Hey Noelle? Can I shamelessly plug another blog on your blog because I think your commenters have deep thoughts and valid points? If you don't mind I'd like to. But I'll wait for your permission first. There's a blog that's all about the discussion in comments, and I wanna hear what Wool-er....David G. and company think....

Plug away Amy my dear...

Here's one that my sweet little (innocent) 6 year old niece told me as we were standing in line for the Winnie The Pooh ride at Disneyland....

Q: Why was Tigger looking in the toilet?

A: He was looking for Pooh.


I'm still trying to figure out if she came up with that on her own or not.....

And I must admit that it messed me up for the ride.

Items of business:

2nd. All commenters on this blog should kindly meander over to http://randalmarsh.blogspot.com in their spare time and do some commenting there too. I'm interested to see what you people come up with.
3rd. Noelle, you rock.

David G. Woolley said...

Oh yeah. We do all the heavy lifting, Noelle shows up maybe once if that and makes a lame comment, and she rocks?

Sandra said...

yes David, and if you will remember we also keep you around for electrical work and snow removal.
