Joke Day

Peter at Holties House has invited anyone interested to participate in a blog joke day. This is not a meme, repeat, this is NOT a meme!

Here's how it works:

The idea is to pick a joke which everybody who wants to participate publishes on the given day along with their own joke, which may or may not be along the same lines.

This is the starter joke, and it's a reasonably funny one too.

Blond Joke.

A blind man and his guide elephant enter a bar and find their way to a stool. After ordering a drink and sitting there for a while, the man yells to the bartender; “Hey , you wanna hear a blond joke?”

The bar falls quiet. In a deep husky voice the woman next to him says; “Before you tell that joke, you should know something. The bartender is blonde, the bouncer is blonde and I’m a 1.82 tall, 90kg blonde with a black belt in karate. The woman sitting next to me is blonde and she’sa weight lifter. The lady to your right is blonde and she’s a pro-wrestler. Think about it seriously, mister; You still wanna tell that joke?”

The man says; “Nah, not if I’m gonna have to explain it five times.”

Now here's my joke:

One Sunday, in counting the money in the weekly offering, the pastor of a small Florida church found a pink envelope containing $1000. It happened again the next week.

The following Sunday, he watched as the offering was collected and saw a little old lady put the distinctive pink envelope in the plate.

This went on for weeks until the pastor, overcome by curiosity, approached her."Ma'am, I couldn't help but notice that you put $1,000 a week in the collection plate," he stated.

"Why yes," she replied, "every week my son sends me money, and I give some of it to the church."

The pastor replied, "That's wonderful, how much does he send you?"

The old lady said, "$10,000 a week."

The pastor was amazed. "Your son is very successful. What does he do for a living?"

"He is a veterinarian," she answered.

"That is an honorable profession," the pastor said. "Where does he practice?"

The old lady said proudly, "In Nevada....He has two cat houses in Las Vegas and one in Reno."

Have a good weekend, everybody!

Hi Christina, thanks for participating in the non-meme joke day, a very funny story too, even if a little catty.

I'm here from Peter's blog.

Good joke. I read it to my husband who laughed out loud at it.

I posted for Joke Day as well.

But... You have two cousins who are veterinarians, and THEY don't make that much on cats. Maybe they need to practice in Nevada, huh?

I laughed out loud at the blonde joke, but didn't understand the other. I'm guessing that a cat'shome is a brothel? (BTW I'm British not blonde!)
