Pun me?

Asked by Zen_Again (9896points) January 22nd, 2010

A man rushed into a busy doctor’s office and shouted, “Doctor! I think I’m shrinking!” The doctor calmly responded, “Now, settle down. You’ll just have to be a little patient.”

There was a street survey taken in New York to see how many puns were actually found funny to the average New Yorker. They told 10 puns to each person and then later compiled the results. They would have considered one of the puns funny if more than 20% of the people polled agreed that particular pun was funny. No pun in ten did.

I have a story actually. Back in the early 70s in Salt Lake City, Utah, some board of educators came up with an idea. They decided to take the lowest 20% of high school students and put them all in a special remedial school, which instead of giving the students a more classical “3 R’s” education, would assess what their individual skills were and provide them with more vocational type training….basically to use what they had to their greatest advantage. One of the most popular courses in this new school was choir, as a lot of these kids, who were let’s face it, just plain stupid in most cases, were able to sing.

But early on, the teacher of this course identified a problem…the kids often lacked motivation. So, in order to motivate them, she started giving a chocolate chip cookie and a can of Coke to each kid who did the proper work. Only problem was, after a couple months, these kids started putting on noticable amounts of weight, leading their parents to find out about the treats, and to complain to the schools. So, this teacher was forced to get creative, and decided to motivate the students with something sweet that wouldn’t make them fat. So, she ended up giving them apples instead of cookies, and Tab (since they didn’t yet have Diet Coke) instead of Coke. Well, it did the trick, and this choir became world famous. Perhaps you’ve heard of them?

An alligator and his buddies walk into a bar, and the alligator gets really drunk and starts pointing at a lady sitting at the other end of the bar. He says to his buddies, “I’m gonna eat that bar bitch.” The bartender yells at the alligator, “I won’t have you talking about my customers like that.” The alligator says, “OK, OK, calm down.” But then 15 minutes later he can’t help himself and he says again to his buddies, “I’m gonna eat that bar bitch over there.” Once again the bartender yells at him and says, “You say that one more time and you’re outta here.” The alligator again apologizes, but then 15 minutes later he says to his buddies, “watch this.” He walks over to the woman and eats her whole. Then the alligator falls down, out cold on the floor before the bartender can do anything. When he comes to, his friends are splashing water in his face, and he looks up at them and says, “what happened?” And his friend replies….

“Must have been that bar bitch you ate.” (if you don’t get it, say the last 4 words really fast so they run together).

She says, “Sir, that frog over there says his name is Kermit Jagger, that he is the son of Mick Jagger, and he wants to take a loan for $30,000. When I asked him for collateral, he handed me this….this…what is this anyway?” To which the manager replies (get ready)...

I come once-a-more! .

Two asses, they come together again.

I come again and pee twice.

Then I come one lasta time.’

The lady can’t take this any more,
You foul-mouthed sex obsessed pig,’ she retorted indignantly.

A young woman goes to the dentist, she is very concerned about having healthy straight teeth but she loves tea. The dentist says he can help her with that no problem. He instructs her to remove her clothes. She asks “what? How is this helping with my teeth?” The dentist replies, “oh it will, more than you know. Trust me, I am a professional.” She strips out of her clothes and to her alarm he does also. While she is still discombobulated the dentist swoops in and caresses her gently, kisses her passionately then deftly lays her on the floor and boinks her as if were an alley cat in heat and he was the Tom cat with all the right stuff. When she get up to dress all out of breath hot and sweaty she says “what part of the treatment was that?” The dentist said, “You did not recognize it? It was the floor ride treatment!”

How did I forget about this one:

Once upon a time there lived a village of creatures known as Trids. The Trids were a simple folk, building everything by hand, having no electricity or plumbing…essentially all their water came from a hand dug well in the center of the village.

Then one day the well ran dry and the Trids began the process of digging a new well. However, in the meantime they still needed water, and the best way for them to get it was to take a small path leading to a bridge over a deep canyon, cross into the neighboring village and draw buckets of water from their many natural springs. Every day at the crack of dawn, all the Trids in the village would grab buckets and march in a single file line down the path, across the bridge and into the neighboring village, filling their buckets and returning home.

But one day, they ran into a huge snag. All the activity had awoken a hibernating troll who lived under the bridge, and the Troll came out to guard the bridge. As the Trids would attempt to cross, the Troll would kick them back into their village. Eventually, after each Trid had been kicked several times, they all got fed up and headed back to their village.

They needed to act quickly, so they summoned the council of elders, a group of learned individuals including lawmakers, librarians, doctors, and religious leaders. The leaders were told of the Trids’ problem and they conferred about how to solve this issue. Then the council told the town of their plan. The Rabbi spoke, “As a man of God and a faithful servant to my flock, I am well respected, even by trolls, and I have a great deal of experience with speaking with all of God’s creatures and resolving conflicts. As such, tomorrow at dawn, I will accompany you all to the neighboring village, I will cross the bridge first, and the Troll will not dare block my progress.”

The Trids decided they had nothing to lose, so at dawn the next morning, the Trids gathered their buckets and marched single file behind the Rabbi to the bridge. The troll stood in the middle of the bridge as the Rabbi marched across. When the Rabbi reached the troll, the troll moved aside and allowed the Rabbi to pass. As the first Trid attempted to cross the bridge, and the troll moved back into the middle of the bridge and began to kick each of the Trids back to their village. The Rabbi watched this with fascination and decided to use his linguistic skills to get to the bottom of the situation.

The Rabbi approached the troll and asked him, “Mr. Troll, why would you allow me, a humble Rabbi to pass over this bridge without kicking me, while the peace loving Trids are not granted the same courtesy?”

To which the troll replied, “Silly Rabbi, kicks are for Trids.”

Three strings walk into a bar, and the first string says to the other two, I’ll go get us drinks. So, the string goes up to the bartender and says, “gimme 3 Stroh’s,” to which the bartender replies, “sorry buddy, we don’t serve Stroh’s to strings.” So the string goes back to the table to tell the other two, and they are incensed. The second string puts on a hat and goes up to the bar, and says, “hey barkeep, gimme 3 Stroh’s,” trying to act all casual. But the bartender sees right through his ruse and says, “sorry, we don’t serve Stroh’s to strings.” So the second string goes back to the table and tells the other two, and the third one says, “let me take care of this.” So, he pulls a razor blade out of his pocket and begins to shave down tiny threads from the top of his head, making his top all ragged. Then he grabs all the loose smaller strings on top of his head, loops them around each other and knots them up and like this, he walks up to the bartender. The string says, “gimme 3 Stroh’s, sir,” and the bartender says, “coming right u…..hey…wait a minute! Aren’t you a string?” To which the third string replies, “no, I’m a frayed knot.”
