Wait for Punch Line


Cyndi:  I don't have any idea what to post today.  Do you?. 

Taylor:  How about a joke? 

Cyndi:  It's hard to think of a joke since we're all missing Merci and Those That Came Before Her. 

Taylor:  I never met Sam but I understand he was the clown who kept you all laughing.

Cyndi:  Yes, he did, and he had a joke for every occasion. 

Taylor:  Even for a funeral?

Cyndi:  Actually, yes.  He liked to say, "I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather."

Taylor:  Sam knew his grandfather?  I never knew mine.

Cyndi:  Not Sam's grandfather.  It could be anybody's grandfather.  It's a joke!

Taylor:  Ha, ha, ha, ha.  A good one.

Cyndi:  You're supposed to wait for the punch line before you laugh.

Taylor:  Oh, good, because that definitely wasn't funny.

Cyndi:  Sam would say,  "I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather - not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car."

Taylor: **pause**  So what's the punch line? 

Cyndi:  That was it. 

Taylor:  I thought you said Sam was funny..

  3. Well we thought Sam was funny. And the humans wonder why we cats don't like riding in the car with them. Who knows when the silly things will fall asleep.

  4. Gallows humor, it's called! I remember when jokes came up right after the first Shuttle disaster, and it felt awful to laugh, but you just cannot help yourself.

  6. Gallows humor is one way of coping with things that are verging on unbearable.Certain professions depend on it to keep their saniuty - cops, ER staff, teachers...
