A Joke

I'm not one for jokes much, or any kind of scripted talk, but Zhoen posted a funny one that reminded me I'd recently laughed out loud at this joke a customer at the Thrift Store told me:

A photon checks into a hotel. 

The night clerk asks, "Can we send someone out to carry your 

And the photon replies, "No, that's OK, I'm traveling light."

Bonus: a comic strip from xkcd (good point! I'd never thought of it): "Moon Landing"

I love bad jokes. Had a nursing instructor for child development describe the various stages by what children at different ages found funny. By telling the jokes.

Meaning, all of us were about 9, and we kept telling those same kinds of jokes for weeks afterward.

What was the alt text for that xkcd?

Hey tHanks, ZHOEN:
I never realized xkcd has alt text [readable when you hover the cursor over the image]!

I tried to re-embed the comic so the alt text would show, but no go.
I did add the link to the post though, just now, though so you can go read the whole thing, which says in part:
"... if the Earth were a basketball, in 40 years no human has been more than half an inch from its surface."

I learned a joke yesterday after watching a documentary about pelicans:

A pelican walks into a pub and sits at the bar. After a few minutes the bartender walks over to it and says: "So, why the long face?"

I'll probably forget the punchline before the week is over; I'm terrible at telling jokes.

Ha! Took me a while to spot that as well. Thanks for the link

Heard that as a horse walks into a bar, same idea.

A priest, a nun and a rabbi walk into a bar, and the rabbi says, "What is this? Some kind of a joke?"

I like jokes between pals just fine.
