This is my hubby's all time favorite joke. He has told it for years. The funniest part of him telling the joke is the responses and looks he receives because NO ONE ever gets it.
But now the joke has gotten even funnier. Since years have passed when our first friends were told the joke, now when he tells it to some new unsuspecting soul(s) and the older friends are there, everyone starts laughing hysterically leaving the poor soul(s) the only one(s) in the room not laughing. (We're so cruel!)
Since my hubby is not the greatest of joke tellers, I always wondered if somehow he got the joke screwed up and was telling it wrong throughout the years. I know English humor can be quite different than American humor, but this one seemed to be off the charts. Well, as it turned out, one Saturday evening a couple of years ago, when watching the British comedy shows on PBS, the "Vicar of Dibley" (our personal favorite) was on. If any of you have ever watched this hilarious show, at the end of each episode, the Vicar tells a joke to her Looney Tune assistant, Alice, who never understands any of her jokes, so the Vicar ends up having to explain them to her. Well, wouldn't you know it, she told my hubby's joke word for word! We were laughing so hard we never heard the Vicar explaining it to Alice.
