How’s that for a “corn”y joke?
Last week I had to give my first ever bus tour to a bunch of people I’d never met. First, I’m not good with directions. Second, I don’t know many interesting facts about the city I live in. Sounds perfect for a tour guide, right?
We were traveling from Wichita to El Dorado (a 45 minute bus ride) and all I had to do was point out some facts about the two cities and some facts about the company I work for. I was even given talking points. Easy, right?
Well, not so easy when you get nervous speaking in front of people.
So, it’s a good thing I prepared a few corny jokes to break the awkward silence. Problem is, anytime I tell a joke I either screw it up or start laughing right before the punch line.
What do you call a pig who knows karate? A (insert laughing) porkchop! Baahaahahahah!
But, now that I think about it, laughing at your own joke right at the punch line make sense. I mean, at least they know where to start laughing. (;
Animation + Alcohol + Corny Jokes =
How’s that for a “corn”y joke? Get it? Corn chips. I made that up myself. Hahhaa. And I’m still laughing about it.
