Depending on when you read this I’m either about to go into surgery, having surgery, or just recovering from surgery. Or I’m completely healed and going on about my life in which case you’re reading this a few days after it’s appeared. Hello person from the future.
I have a simple request: tell me a joke. A one-liner. A pun. An amusing anecdote. A put-down. A humorous quotation. A filthy limerick. A really filthy limerick. If it makes you laugh share it in the comments section. And please share this with anyone and everyone you know. Get your kids, talk to your neighbors, call your pen pals.
The surgery I’m having is very minor–it’s an outpatient procedure–but I still want to be overwhelmed with witticisms, although if not that many people come to the party I’ll settle for whelmed.
And I’ll start with my favorite joke: a rabbi, a priest, and a minister walk into a bar. The bartender says, “Is this a joke?”
