Uncle Bud’s Joke (not so funny)
Uncle Bud tells the same joke every year at the first campfire, so every returning camper knows it by heart. And just before he gets to the end, we always interrupt by yelling out the punch line and laughing hysterically.
Here it is. But I warn you, it’s only funny if you’ve heard it a million times.

A man went into a restaurant with a gigantic, sharp-toothed monster on a leash.
“I’m terribly sorry, sir,” the waiter said, “Your creature looks extremely dangerous. You’ll have to tie him up outside.”
So the man took his monster outside and tied him to a post, then came back inside and ordered dinner. Just as he took the first bite, a little girl came into the restaurant and asked, “Does that terrible monster outside belong to anyone in here?”
“It’s mine,” said the man. “Is there a problem?”
“Well, I’m really sorry,” the little girl said, “But my tiny little kitten just killed him.”
“Killed him!?” The man shouted. “How?”
“She choked him,” the little girl replied.
The man waved his arms in the air and asked loudly, “How could your tiny little kitten choke my great big monster?”
The little girl looked at the man and said, “She got stuck in his throat.”
