TBWCYL Day 287 - Funny Ha Ha!

Yesterday was an easy, and funny task. I had to find a joke I liked and tell it to people and gauge by their reaction if I tell jokes well enough to become a stand up comic. I told the below joke to 5 people of different sexes, ages and ethnicity to get a good sampling.

One day a hippie gets a ride on a public bus and sees a hot young nun. He sits down next to her and promptly asks if she would like to have sex, to which she immediately says no and walks off the bus. The bus driver leans over and says “

Hey guy I know how to get that nun to have sex with you…”

Naturally the hippie asks, and the bus driver tells him that every night at midnight the nun goes to an old graveyard to pray for god to forgive her for her past, and that he should dress up like god and tell the nun she will be forgiven if she has sex with you. The hippie gives his thanks and runs to the nearest costume shop.

Later that evening the hippie gets ready for his big night and drives down to the graveyard and sees the nun praying, on her knees. He says “Behold, I have heard your prayers and you shall be forgiven if you have sex with me!”

The nun agrees but asks if they can have anal sex in order to keep her virginity. The hippie agrees and once they are finished the hippie jumps back and pulls off his mask and says “Surprise, its me the Hippie!”

The nun jumps up and pulls off her mask and says “Surprise, its me the bus driver!”

I liked this joke so I told it and got some decent laughs. Some thought the joke was "wrong", my father laughed loudly and then claimed it wasn't funny, and my wife giggled but thought it was gross.

I don't think it was good enough to get me into a career and since I didn't come up with it to begin with, I may not have the writing chops to really do well with this so I am going to have to stick with being random and making people laugh that way.

That is all,

If someone doesn't think anal sex with a bus driver isn't funny than I would rather not be friends with that person. I am still laughing over your previous post, btw. I think I want to do that sometime.

Hehehehee, that reminds me of that one about Superman and Wonderwoman!

I think writing funny stuff is much easier than stand-up anyway, you don't have to remember it and you can take as long as you want writing it.

S&C that is too true.

Lola I agree completely.

Peach - I might just be able to finesse this thing.
