Why are you seeing the most badassest coffin ever?  Because, now that I’ve gotten your attention, I’m going to tell you one of the worst jokes ever.  A joke I heard over 25 years ago.  It’s so bad, it’s good.  I’ve always told people that I’m going to video tape myself telling this joke and have it played  at my funeral for my hordes of grieving friends, fans and loved ones.

Today is your lucky day!  You, dear readers, don’t have to wait until I’m dead to groan in agony at this probably not very funny joke.  So, without further ado~ my soon to be famous last words…..Stop me if you’ve heard this one:

Three strings walk into a bar~They sit down at a booth, and the first piece of string goes up to the bar to order some drinks. 

The bartender says, “We don’t serve strings here.”

The first string goes back to the table with no drinks, so the second string gives it a go. 

The bartender says, “Look, I told your little friend I don’t serve your kind here, so you strings are just going to have to leave. “

 When he returns to the table empty handed, the the third strings says, “Let me handle this, I’ll get us some drinks.”

The third  piece of string stands up,  ties himself into a knot and then starts unraveling his fringe at the top and bottom.  His friends are confused and incredulous. He then confidently saunters up to the bar. 

“My friends and I would like some drinks, please.” He says to the bartender. 

With a squinty sideways look, the bartender says, “Hey, aren’t you a piece of string?”


Ha ha ha hahaha……in the immortal words of Beetlejuice: “And it keeps getting funnier everytime I hear it.”

Is there a stupid joke that just stays with you for some reason?  Is it as bad as this one?  Worse maybe?  Let’s hear it.

  2. A long, long time ago, at a moment when I wwas running around like a chicken with its head cut off, someone grabbed my attention and said…

    A hamburger walks into a bar, asks for a beer.
    Bartender says “I’m sorry, we don’t server food here”.

    Laughed my head off, and made it through the rest of the night.

    I usually tell the hamburger joke and the frayed knot joke as a pair.

    • I don’t know why that dumb joke has stayed with me all these years. It’s always best to tell it using your best Pee Wee Herman voice to deliver the “Nope Frayed Knot” line. And then do his laugh. Thanks for the re-blog, by the way. 🙂

  3. A ninety year old man shows up for a physical. He tells the
    doctor he is about to marry a 20 year old girl. “Really?” said
    the doctor. “You’re healthy enough, I suppose, but take my
    advice. If you want a happy marriage, you should take in a
    boarder. Do you know what I mean?” The old man says, “OK,
    doc. I’ll think about it.” Six months later, the doctor sees the
    old man on the street. He asks him how his new marriage is
    working out.”Great doc! In fact, my wife is pregnant.”

    The doctor nods knowingly and says, “So you took my advice
    and took in a boarder?” The old man winked and said, “Yep.
    And she’s pregnant too!

    Actually this isn’t one of my jokes,

    Have a wicked rest of afternoon my friend 🙂

  12. In New Hampshuh, that’s considered a good joke. ‘Nuff said… : (


    A dog walks into a bar and says to the bartender: “Hey, it’s my birthday– can I have a free drink?”

    The bartender says: “Sure– the toilet’s right around the corner.”

    : )

  13. I am REALLY CHUFFED about the letter I just sent to my 8-year-old nephew. Inside the envelope is another envelope that says “Knock, knock!” Inside that envelope is a smaller envelope that says — you guessed it! — “Who’s there?” Inside that envelope, another: “Y!” — “Y who?” And inside that is a teeny weeny envelope (I folded it myself out of paper) and inside it says,

    “Y are you opening all these envelopes?”

    Hahaha! I kill myself!

    • Hey there! I just saw your comment about my recent chicken/mayo fail. You are so right. Mayo and chicken only belong together in the beautiful marriage that is the classic chicken salad. I am just now reading your post about the destruction of books for craft projects. What a shame. But the Humpty Dumpty shelf is pretty funny by the way. 🙂

Well.....let's hear it!
