This week things around here are a tad bit kaaarazy, with a capital “K.”  It’s all good. Nothing is wrong. Everything is actually going well. It just seems like it’s all happening at the same time. I can’t complain. I will say it’s the perfect time for a good joke though – a little break from the crazy train (or krazy train if you’re one of those people who like spelling words that start with “c” with a “k”).

So here’s a little story from last year that my dog, Jake, seemed to enjoy, and I hope you do too.

Hey Jake! Wanna hear a joke?

Have you heard the one about the three dogs?

Don’t pretend like you’re ignoring me. You know you like a good joke as well as the next dog, so listen up!

Once upon a time…

Three handsome male dogs are walking down the street when they see a beautiful, enticing, female Poodle. The three male dogs fall all over themselves in an effort to be the one to reach her first, but end up arriving in front of her at the same time. The males are speechless before her beauty, slobbering on themselves and hoping for just a glance from her in return.

Aware of her charms and her obvious effect on the three suitors, she decides to be kind and tells them “The first one who can use the words “liver” and “cheese” together in an imaginative, intelligent sentence can go out with me.”

The sturdy, muscular black Lab speaks up quickly and says “I love liver and cheese.”

“Oh, how childish,” said the Poodle. “That shows no imagination or intelligence whatsoever.”

She turned to the tall, shiny Golden Retriever and said “How well can you do?”

“Ummmm…I HATE liver and cheese,” blurts the Golden Retriever.

“My, my,” said the Poodle. “I guess it’s hopeless. That’s just as dumb as the Lab’s sentence.”

She then turns to the last of the three dogs and says, “How about you, little guy?”

The last of the three, tiny in stature but big in fame and finesse, is the taco loving chihuahua, with a certain accent. He gives her a smile, a sly wink, turns to the Golden Retriever and the Lab, and says…

“Liver alone. Cheese mine.”

Yeah, I thought you’d like that one.

Nothing like a good cheesy joke.

Have a great day! Share a joke (clean, please) if you have a good one!

(BTW, author of the above joke is unknown to me.)
