Friday Funnies

August 18th, 2017

Ahh, the county fair. Is there anything that signals the end of summer more definitively than the smell of fried cotton-candy-wrapped corn dogs and funnel cakes? I’m looking forward to enjoying the Central States Fair this weekend, but only after sharing a couple funny fair fare:

Stumpy took his wife to the State Fair and one of the exhibits is that of breeding bulls.  They went up to the first pen and there was a sign that said, “This bull mated 50 times last year.” Martha poked her husband in the ribs, giggled and said, “He mated 50 times last year.”

They walked a little further and saw another pen with a sign that said, “This bull mated 120 times last year.” Martha hit Stumpy and said, “That’s more than twice a week! You could learn a lot from him.”

They walked further and a third pen had a bull with a sign saying, “This bull mated 365 times last year.” Martha got really excited and said, “That’s once a day. You could REALLY learn something from this one.” Stumpy looked at her and said, “Go up and ask him if it was with the same cow.”

Now Stumpy and his wife Martha went to the State Fair every year. Every year Stumpy would say, “Martha, I’d like to ride in the airplane.” And every year Martha would say, “I know, Stumpy, but that airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars.”

This year Stumpy and Martha came out of the bull barn and Stumpy said, “Martha, I’m 71 years old.  If I don’t ride that airplane this year I may never get another chance.” Martha replied, “Stumpy, the airplane ride costs ten dollars, and ten dollars is ten dollars.”

The pilot overheard them and said, “Folks, I’ll make you a deal. I’ll take you both up for a ride.  If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say one word, I won’t charge you, but if you say one word it’s ten dollars.”

Stumpy and Martha agree and up they go.  The pilot does all kinds of twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word is heard.  He does all his tricks over again, but still not a word.  They land and the pilot turns to Stumpy, “By golly, I did everything I could think of to get you to yell out, but you didn’t.” Stumpy replied, “Well, I was gonna say something when Martha fell out, but ten dollars is ten dollars.”
