Probably a brand of flour, not that I would know.
You're right Roger. For the joke to make any sense. Flour is the word play pun in lieu of flower.
Oh. Well, that doesn't really play into "What's her favorite flower" question, then.
Now if he'd said Pillsbury I would have got it.
My first thought there was "Doughboy!?". Conditioned reflex, I suppose.
Remember you're reading the joke but the man is hearing the word.
holy crap...I had no idea that the joke would generate such confusion! It's the flower (flour) pun that got everybody befuddled. And the fact that Homepride is not the best known flour. Oh well, I thought it was funny.
Oddly enough after the research... the befuddlement was cleared up for me. I was slow on the punny uptake meself. It was after all ... quite funny.
Agreed. I think it's a very good bad joke. I'd just never heard of Homepride. And my befuddled mind kept conflating it with Homeslice, the unfortunate hamster on this forum who gets sacrificed from time to time.
We could found a new religion based on the multiple ressurections of Homeslice. I wonder what his message was - blessed be his name.
I'm going to make a poster. WWHSD?
Get with Boomerang. I think TCOICBINB would use a martyr about now.
I saw someone wearing a T-shirt the other day which actually said WTFWJD
The Psychiatrist & The Proctologist.
Best friends graduated from medical school at the same time and decided
that, in spite of two different specialties, they would open a practice together
to share office space and personnel.
Dr. Smith was the psychiatrist and Dr. Jones was the proctologist.
They put up a sign reading:
"Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones: Hysterias and Posteriors". The town council was
livid and insisted they change it.
So, the docs changed it to read:
"Schizoids and Hemorrhoids".This was also not acceptable, so they again
changed the sign.
"Catatonics and High Colonics" - No go.
Next, they tried:
"Manic Depressives and Anal Retentives" - thumbs down again.
Then came "Minds and Behinds" - still no good.
Another attempt resulted in "Lost Souls and Butt Holes" - unacceptable
So they tried "Analysis and Anal Cysts" - not a chance.
"Nuts and Butts" - no way.
"Freaks and Cheeks" - still no good.
"Loons and Moons" - forget it.
Almost at their wit's end, the docs finally came up with:
"Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones - Specializing in Odds and Ends".
Everyone loved it.
It's old but still good.
What's good about scatology?
Awright. It's an oldie, but it still is a really bad joke.
The Talking Centipede
A single guy decided life would be more fun
if he had a pet.
So he went to the pet store
and told the owner
that he wanted to buy an unusual pet.
After some discussion,
he finally bought a talking centipede,
which came in a little white box
to use for his house.
He took the box back home,
found a good spot for the box,
and decided he would start off
by taking his new pet
to church with him.
So he asked the centipede in the box,
"Would you like to go
to church with me today?
We will have a good time."
But there was no answer
from his new pet.
This bothered him a bit,
but he waited a few minutes
and then asked again,
"How about going
to church with me
there was no answer
from his new friend and pet.
So he waited
a few minutes more,
thinking about the situation.
The guy decided
to invite the centipede
one last time.
This time he
put his face up against
the centipede's house and shouted,
"Hey, in there!
Would you like to go
to church with me
and learn about God?"
a little voice
came out of the box,
"I heard you the first time!
I ' m putting my shoes on!"
