Sniffing around for the funny

A three-legged dog walks into a bar, hops up on a stool, slams his paw down and says, “Barkeep, give me a cold one.” The bartender slides a cool draft toward the mutt, notes his slack jaw and and asks, “You’re not from around here, is ya? You in town for long?” The dog looks up from his ale and says, “Just long enough to find the feller what shot my paw.”

Oh, c’mon now, that’s funny. Or it really is horribly pathetic.

Here’s another, thank you Jean
Yesterday, while helping the husband with some work, he asked me if I could hold up a window so he could put it back in after strengthening it-old windows. I pointed my finger at it like a gun and told it to give me all it’s money. He started shaking with laughter and he just looked at me and said “Could you just do what I asked you, and not be a smarta** about it?” Hey, he’s the one who told me to hold up the window.

And here is one more. Thank you Reza

I like corny jokes, I like fun videos where other people break out in spontaneous laughter. It makes me laugh as well. I like long pointless stories that wind and weave to the punchline. I like a good pun.

And I especially like really smart humor where you had to have read the book to get it.

Those are the things that make me laugh.

This blog post is part of a blog-off series with a group of bloggers from different professions and world views, each exploring a theme from his/her world view. This was about “What makes you laugh?” To explore how others handled the theme, check them out below. I will add links as they publish.

About Rufus Dogg

I'm a dog who writes a blog. It is not a pet blog. It is a real blog that talks about real ideas. No, really. I do my own writing, but I have a really, really cool editor who overlooks the fact that I can't really hit the space-bar key cause I don't have thumbs. I talk about everything from politics to social issues to just rambling about local problems. And, sometimes I just talk about nothing in particular. Google+

  5. I like corny jokes, too. (A piece of string walks into a bar and orders a drink. Bartender says, ‘We don’t serve your kind here. String walks out, doubles over, pulls the end through, spreads out the end threads, and goes back in. Bartender says, ‘Hey, aren’t you that piece of string I just kicked out. String replies, ‘No, I’m a frayed knot.’) Out of all the ones in this blog off I’ve read, yours is the first to tell a joke. I guess that’s just more proof that there are only two kinds of people in the world – those who divide everyone into two groups and those who don’t.
