Afraid of a Tree Joke

Marcus:  Well, I guess it's just you and me today, Merci.  The rest of the crew are sacked out in this heat and humidity.

Merci:  I'm just waking from a nap and can't think of a thing to post.  What about you?

Marcus:  No, I can't think of a thing either. 

Merci:  I know!  We can post a joke.  Do you know a joke?

Marcus:  No.  Wait, I do know one.  Why was the cat afraid of the tree?

Merci:  I don't know.  Perhaps it got stuck in a tree once and had to be rescued by the fire department.  That would make me afraid of a tree.

Marcus:  Let me know when you start climbing a tree.  I want a video!

Merci:  So why was the cat afraid of the tree?

Marcus:  Because of the bark.

Merci: Because of the bark?  Were you hiding behind the tree?  You bark like a crazy dog and I'd sure be scared of a tree if I thought it barked like you.

Marcus:   I'm insulted.  I am the quietest, best-behaved pup you've ever met. 

Merci:  In your dreams!  And speaking of dreams, it's time for me to finish the one I was having before you woke me for this post. 

Marcus:  A good dream?

Merci:  The best! The cats and I had peace and quiet for two whole days.  It was wonderful.

Marcus:  Two days of quiet.  How did that happen?

Merci:  You had laryngitis.


  1. I can't imagine 2 days of not barkin round here!

  2. I bark a lot. Too much, my humans say. But then, who would warn them about the car doors slamming two blocks away, and the mail truck going by, and somebody walking by on the sidewalk, etc?

  3. Oh, Marcus, your bark is MUCH worse than your bite. Er...I take that back...remember Jan's finger! OKAY I know it was an accident, but I think you really have to watch it and not bark up the wrong tree, haha. Love Loulou

  4. Mom and I loved the joke. Now, everybody down fur a nap.
