I posted a recipe for Because Pie over in Food today, and one sentence made me think of a really silly joke I know. Here’s the one-and-a-half sentences that sparked this flash of inspiration: “place the dish in the oven for about an hour. Take it out, place the mozzarella slices on top and put it back in the oven for another half hour.”

And here’s the corresponding (?) joke (it’s a Q&A type of joke, where you ask some unsuspecting friend or foe a question and they’re bound to give the wrong answer):

Q: How do you put an elephant into the fridge?

Naturally, most people struggle with the answer to this, as there doesn’t seem to be a sensible way (never mind a reason) of getting an elephant into a fridge, and of course they’re expecting a serious twist. Well, life could be so simple:

A: Open door, put elephant in, close door.

After having contentedly watched your victim slap their forehead, there goes the next question:

l

Q: How do you put a giraffe into the fridge?

And of course, after having gotten the first one embarrassingly wrong, they quickly and confidently reply: Open door, put giraffe in, close door.

Wrong.

The correct answer, of course, is:

A: Open door, get elephant out, put giraffe in, close door.

l

Tsss, silly friend/foe.

The joke goes on and on and I keep forgetting the rest. I shall look it up shortly and maybe I’ll post an update at some point. But I wouldn’t count on it if I were you, because, if “daily”, to me, means “sporadically”, what could “at some point” possibly leave to hope for?

    Before asking the next question, it’s best to act like it’s a whole different joke. The question goes:

    Q: As everybody knows, the lion is the king of the animals. Now the lion has called a conference of all the animals. Every animal attends, except for one. Which?

    Surprisingly (if you know the answer) many people go “gosh, I don’t know”. But the answer is simple:

    A: The giraffe. It’s still in the fridge!

    Okay, now we move on to the last question. This is more of a survival one…

    Q: You want to cross the Nile. There is no bridge. As you know, many crocodiles live in the Nile, that means you can’t really swim over. How can you cross?

    After having gotten most or all of the above wrong, most people will get very creative. But the solution is simple:

    A: You can just swim over. The crocodiles are all at the conference.

    HA! Told you I’d post the rest of the joke at some point!
    Never mind that my fabulous ex-roomie beat me to the punch – she usually does! 😉
    Thanks for ending the suspense!
