waiting for a punchline

May 25, 2010

I have two kids, and I spend a lot of time listening to jokes. Sometimes I’m not sure when the joke is over, but I’ve learned that it’s better not to wait; as soon as the first pause in the delivery happens…laugh.

Today’s joke was “What’s the difference between a penguin and a cookie?”

We never got to the punchline.

Some jokes are better that way.

…like this one:

Question: What do thousands of tourists and other travelers on either side of the Atlantic during most of April 2009, and the Art of Waiting have in common?
Answer: They were both waiting for Ash.

Our 2nd winner of the spring contest has accepted our invitation to join the Art of Waiting…welcome Ash!

    I know the intro isn’t really the point of this post, but it might be a good way to stave off the ridiculous punchlines to my little boys’ jokes. Although, it might frustrate them a bit, too. 🙂
