It’s time for our latest Joke Blog, in which we share some of our favorite jokes heard when we perform “Happy Place” during Milkshake concerts, or sent in to us via emails and letters.
“Why did the bee want to get married?” So he could meet his huni.”
“Knock Knock. Who’s there? Hello. HELLO WHO? Hello kitty.”
“Why was the baby ant confused? Because all his uncles were ants.”
“What do you call a dinosaur wearing eyeglasses? Youthinkhesaurus.”
“What do you call a cow with no legs? Ground beef.”
Cord: Hey Mikel, you look pretty dirty.
Mikel: Why thank you Cord. I look pretty when I’m clean too.
I love hearing jokes and one day I hope to actually be good at telling them, but one special Milkshake fan trumps all the joke-tellers I know right now. James Burrows has been a Milkshake fan for most of his young life. Now he’s 13 and creating his own interesting beat-based music. Here’s a link to a recent piece on WYPR’s The Signal featuring James and his work. James not only tells jokes – he makes them up, and his mother Nancy says there’ll be times when it’s a “Joke-A-Day” feature in their lives. We’re thinking James might add this to his many potentially lucrative talents. Here’s a few of his mother’s favorites that she sent to us by email the other day:
“What’s a vehicle that runs around? A tractor!”
“What did the Mexican cloud say? Let’s Taco ’bout the weather.”
“What happened when the engine got tired? It was exhausted!!”
“Where do Baltimore penguins go when they’re cold? The inner harbrrrrr”
“What did the sheep say? Rub my baaaaack”
“Who opens a cage? A zoo KEYper”
“What might you worry when you brush your teeth? The toothbrush might sink!”
“Why did the sick boy fly? He had the flu!”
“What fruit can you drink from? A strawberry.”
“What kind of shoes should you wear at the beach? SANDals!”
“What’s a part of your body that rings? Your bell-y!”
“What do you say when you drop your meat on the ground? I made a miSTEAK!”
“What kind of storm do you go fast in? a HuRRYcane!”
“What town has a lot of bruises? sCARSdale!”
“What’s a criminal’s fav food? JAIL-O.”
“What’s a balloon’s fav food? A popsicle.”
Great stuff – thanks for sharing, friends! We’ll post another joke blog soon.
