Start the Week

Yesterday, I was thinking about the one word challenge when I stumbled across a Tommy Cooper joke. I assume we’ve all heard of Tommy? If not… “What a good way to address the prompt”, I thought, and promptly went looking for other jokes that might be usable.

Now, I am useless at remembering jokes. I found a few pages with great lists of his material. Not to mention, there are countless other brilliant comedians. So, it became just an exercise in reading through each page and having a laugh. I thought I’d present this one, before I forget it.

A man takes his Rottweiler to the vet.

“My dog’s crosseyed, is there anything you can do for him?”

“Well,” says the vet, “let’s have a look at him”

So he picks the dog up and examines his eyes, then checks his teeth.

Finally, he says “I’m going to have to put him down.”

“What? Because he’s crosseyed? “

“No, because he’s really heavy”

Must look up some more comedians

Fandango’s One Word Challenge (7 June 2020)

A blind bloke walks into a shop with a guide dog. He picks the Dog up and starts swinging it around his head. Alarmed, a shop assistant calls out: ‘Can I help, sir?’ ‘No thanks,’ says the blind bloke. ‘Just looking.’
