The three potatoes

The Spuds had three daughters, all of whom went away to college. There they met and dated several diffeent peole. All three became engaged at the same time, and went home to tell their parents.

The oldest daughter said, “Mom, Dad, I have some good news. I’m getting married!”

The parents asked, “So who is the lucky fellow?”

“His name is Daniel Russet,” the daughter said, with a hint of pride in her voice.

“Wonderful!” The proud parents exclaimed. “The Russets are a distinguished line of potatoes!”

The middle daughter said, “Mom, Dad, I have good news, too. I’m also engaged to be married.”

“And who are you going to marry, dear?”

“His name is Benjamin Idaho,” the daughter replied.

“Oh, the Idahos are a fine old potato family,” Mom and Dad Spud said. “We’re so happy for both of you!”

The youngest daughter’s turn came. She said, “Mom, Dad, you won’t believe this. I’m engaged, too!”

“And who is your lucky fellow?” the parents wanted to know.

His name is Tom Brokow,” was the reply.

At this the parents looked at their youngest daughter with a disapproving stare. “But, honey,” they gasped. “That won’t do at all! Why, he’s just . . . a common tater!”

A String Walks into a Bar

A string walked into a bar, hopped on the barstool, and said, “Bartender, gimme a beer.” The bartender said, “I’m sorry, sir, we don’t serve strings here.”

Disappointed, the string hopped down from the stool and went to the next bar. He hopped on the barstool and said, again, “Bartender, gimme a beer.” The bartender said, “I’m sorry sir, we don’t serve strings here.”

The string continued down the row of bars in this fashion. At every bar, he hopped on the barstool and said, “Bartender, gimme a beer.” The bartender at every bar in turn said, “I’m sorry sir, we don’t serve strings here.”

Finally he got to the last bar in the area. He was tired, he was sweaty, all he wanted was a beer. He trudged inside, climbed on the barstool, and said, “Bartender, gimme a beer.” This bartender, too, said, “I’m sorry, sir, we don’t serve strings here.”

Tired and angry, the string walked outside to think. He was a hard-working string. He deserved a beer. Finally, he came up with an idea. He had a passerby tie him up into a bow and frazzle his ends. Then he went back into the bar, and climbed up on the barstool. “Bartender, gimme a beer!” he said loudly.

The bartender looked him over critically, and finally yelled, “Hey, aren’t you that string that was in here a few minutes ago?”

The string replied coolly, “Nope, I’m a frayed knot.”

The Piano Tuner

THE PIANO TUNER

A man moved to another state where he didn’t know anyone. In the move, his old piano was jarred, and of course it needed to be tuned when the man arrived.

So he asked around, and was told that Earl Opporknockity was the best piano tuner in the area. The man called Earl and hired him to tune his piano.

Earl had a keen ear and a deft touch, and did a wonderful job tuning the old piano. The man was able to play beautiful music once again, and was very pleased.

After a year or so the old piano started producing sour notes again. So the man called Earl, and asked him to come work his magic on the old piano again.

To the man’s surprise, Earl refused, saying “Sorry, I can’t accept the job.”

“Why not?” the man wanted to know. “I’ll pay you twice as much as last time if you’ll just come tune my piano.”

“Haven’t you heard?” Earl asked, “Opporknockity only tunes once.”

The Siege

The SIEGE

A royal castle was under siege from an infidel army. The only hope was to send one of the knights to get help, but the problem was that all of the horses had been killed in the battle.

“We must get help,” said the king.

“I know,” replied the leader of his army, “but we have no horses. If a knight goes on foot, he will be slain at once.”

“Is there not another animal he can ride?” demanded the king. “What about that mighty wolfhound? It could surely bear the weight of a man.”

“No, no,” pleaded the army leader. “The wolfhound is too dangerous. Look at its snarling teeth. I wouldn’t send a knight out on a dog like this.”

The Contest

THE CONTEST

There was a man who entered a local paper’s pun contest. He sent in ten different puns, in the hope that at least one of the puns would win. Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.

The Hanging

THE CHOICE

An old punster made the king the butt of most of his jokes. Consequently, he was loved by the people, but hated by the king.

The king endured the ridicule for months. One day, after hearing people in the streets repeating some of their favorite quips, he had had enough. He had the following statement posted around the royal city:

“By royal decree, anyone who tells a pun will be hanged by the neck until he is dead.”

The old punster kept telling his jokes, including puns. He was arrested, tried, convicted, and sentenced to be hanged at dawn in a week’s time.

The king’s conscience was pricked. He didn’t want to execute a citizen for merely telling jokes. So the king sent a message to the hangman on the morning of the execution, telling him that the old man was to be given a pardon if he promised never to tell another pun.

The old man couldn’t imagine living in a world where he could not tell a pun. So he replied, “No noose is good news,” and died gladly.
