Fooling the Old Man

We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

The Tricky Wife

A lady was walking down the street when she was a approached by a lady beggar asking for money.

The lady took a $20 bill out of her purse, and asked “if I give you this money will you spend it on chocolate.”

“Don’t be ridiculous” the beggar replied “does it look like I have nothing better to spend money on?”

“How about shopping?” she asked.

“No,” the beggar said, “don’t you understand I need money just to stay alive.”

“Will you spend it on your hair?” the lady asked. Annoyed, the beggar replied, “No, I just need money for food, and shelter.

“In that case” the lady said “I don’t want to just give you money I would like you to eat out with me and my husband tonight.”

“Why?” The beggar asked.

“Well,” the lady said “I think it’s important for him to see what a lady looks like after she gives up chocolate, shopping, and hair appointments.”
Signature: "The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."
