Elephants and Squirrels
Marcus: Just a second. I'm looking for another Funny Farmer to help me tell a joke. Buddy, I need your help.
Buddy: You want my help to tell a joke?
Marcus: Yes. Once there was a football game between two teams of animals.
Buddy: Two teams of animals. That's kind of a general description. Can you be more specific?
Marcus: Yes, a team of big animals and a team of little animals.
Buddy: Are we talking elephant and squirrel sizes?
Marcus: It doesn't matter.
Buddy: So there are elephants and squirrels on the teams?
Marcus: If you want them on the team, sure. The first half of the game didn't go well for the little animals.
Buddy: An elephant stepped on a squirrel?
Marcus: Not that I know of., but the big animals were winning.
Buddy: Well, I can understand the big animals winning. I can just see a little squirrel trying to tackle an elephant. Or what if the squirrel tried to block the elephant? No, I can't look!
Marcus: Stop crying, the squirrel is fine, Buddy.
Buddy: I'm so relieved.
Marcus: Things changed during the second half when the centipede showed up and scored so many touchdowns the little animals won the game.
Buddy: So where was the centipede during the first half of the game?
Marcus: That's what the chipmunk asked when the game was over.
Buddy: And what did the centipede say?
Marcus: He said ... Uh, oh, I forget the punchline.
Buddy: That doesn't make any sense.
Marcus: Seriously, Buddy, I've forgotten the punchline.
Cyndi: That's okay, Marcus. I read the same joke. When the chipmunk asked where the centipede was during the first half of the game, the centipede responded, "Put -
Marcus: "Putting on my shoes!"
Cyndi: Well, for one who forgot the punchline, you sure spoiled mine!
