About <mumble> years ago I moved from Tallahasse, FL down to Orlando. I found myself at the O-rena one night waiting for a show to finish so we could start loading it out (I think it was Duran Duran, but it may have been Nine Inch Nails). There must have been 40 or 50 of us sitting in a big circle, just chatting away. I was fairly quiet, just listening, because I had only met these people that morning during the load-in.
Eventually, someone told a joke that got a good laugh, and they began to go around the circle, each person telling a joke. When they got to me, a guy named Kevin (who remembered my name) said “Yer turn, Bo” and I realized that I wasn’t prepared at all. I was drawing a blank. None of the approximately 40 kabillion jokes I know was surfacing. I wanted badly to participate, to become a part of the group, but my stupid brain wasn’t cooperating!
So of course, I opened my mouth.
"Well, I don’t think y’all wanna hear the whole joke, cause we don’t have much time. But the punchline is
why do you ask, Two-Dogs-Fucking?"
Four or five people fell over laughing, and to this day I am still able to get a laugh out of just this punchline. Anyone else got a good punchline? Anyone? Bueller?
