#2-Uncle Bud’s joke

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.”

    • Knock knock

      Doris who
      Doris locked…that’s why I’m knocking!

  1. How do you make an elephant float? With ice cream, root beer, chocolate sauce, and an elephant!

  2. Hi! I love the joke. Maybe I would tell it to a few people. Don’t worry, I’ll tell them it’s from a Cheesie Mack book. 😉 Could you send me a few texts on my gmail PLEASE!? I’m your biggest fan, even though I’ve only read the second book. You’re the best!

  3. Hi Cheesie! Honestly, I think your sister is kinda cool. I mean, I’m a big sister myself, and sometimes little brothers(or sisters)can be annoying. Give her a chance! Kids have different preferences. If you were less mean to her, maybe she would be less mean to you. Think about it! And remember, treat others as you want to be treated. Bye!

    • I honestly believe that I am nicer to Goon than she is to me.
      But I do agree with you that niceness creates more niceness in return.
      I’;ll try.

      • I have 2 little sisters so I think I know just how Goon feels. Older siblings can be annoying, though.
