A Good Joke for Hump Day.


Happy Hump Day.

Okay, here are your hump day laughs to get you over the middle of the week hump and headed for the weekend.

First, remember the post I did a couple hump days ago on the pet hall of shame?  Here's one I missed.


Now for the joke. This is one I hadn't heard/read before and it made me laugh. I hope it will do the same for you.

Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken."  She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right because everyone else laughed. 

My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal.  I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals ... very much. I do, too, especially chicken, pork and beef.  

Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office. I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again.  

The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was. I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken. She sent me back to the principal's office. He laughed, and told me not to do it again.  

I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it when I am. 

 Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what famous person I admired most. I told her, "Colonel Sanders." 

 Guess where I am now?

Did it work? Did you laugh? Chuckle? Smile?

Since the joke was kind of long, I'm jumping straight to your 'aw' picture. 



I know that one worked. 

Are you all set? Gonna make it to the weekend? 

Do you have any special plans for the weekend?  I know that's usually a Friday question but I have a couple other questions in mind for Friday and I don't want to overwhelm anyone.

CHICKENS: The only animals you eat before they are born and after they are dead.

(I'm sorry. It just sort of fit.)

Fun post, and yeah, you made me laugh. As for PETA, I'll have you know my hubby and I are card-carrying members... People Eating Tasty Animals, that is.
