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.

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?
