The Third Annual Joke Show


Did you hear there was a fire at a Basque movie theater and unfortunately there was only a single emergency exit door, so several people were trampled to death, which only goes to show: you shouldn't put all your Basques in one exit.

Did you hear that NASA has launched several Holsteins into low earth orbit? It was the herd shot around the world.

Hmmmmm. That new upper plate I put in for you six months ago is eroding. I'll bet you've been eating a lot of Hollandaise sauce, haven't you.
Yeah, I have.
I thought so. You see, Hollandaise sauce has lemon juice in it which is highly corrosive. So I'll have to make you a new plate, and this time instead of silver, I'll make it out of chrome.
Why chrome?
Well, there's no plate like chrome for the Hollandaise.

Did you hear that Miss Muffet and Saddam Hussein got together for a meeting last week to discuss their common problem?
They both have Kurds in their whey.

How do you know?

So---- Professor ---- back from the Rawalpindi archipelago, huh? Discover anything interesting out there?

Hey. With fronds like those, who needs enemas?

Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocaine during his root canal?
He wanted to transcend dental medication.

Only one, but it really gets screwed.
