A Jokester, I'm not

So, my dear Cyber Pal Sal (I love how that just rolls off the tongue) challenged me to post my favorite joke. Her visiting teacher's hubby is deployed and she (the VT, not Sally) tells him a new joke each time she talks to him. So, there's good news and bad news. The Good News: I have finally discovered a secret talent! The Bad News: My secret talent is forgetting jokes.

Literally, the only joke I can remember is one I got off of Laffy Taffy when I was a freshman in college. Here goes nothing:
What did one strawberry say to the other?
Drum roll, please........
"If you weren't so fresh, we wouldn't be in this jam!"

Sorry, Sally, that's all I've got! It's pretty good, though, right? Fresh/jam? It's cute! Right?

Awesome. Ok, here's my family's famous joke (my mom loves it for some reason).

So a horse walks into a bar, and the bartender says, "Why the long face?"

OH, and my personal favorite:

A toothless termite walks into a bar and says, "Is the bar tender here?"

I guess I only have bar jokes.

I have two also. Zachery's favorite when he was little (actually a riddle): Where do cows go to dance?

To the meat ball.

And my dirty joke (also a bar joke). A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel sticking out of his pants. The bartender asks, "Did you know you have a steering wheel in your pants?" And the pirate says, "Aaarrgh it's driving me nuts."

You have to use the pirate language for the reply or it's not funny.

That's so funny! I am the exact same way and I get so frustrated that I can't remember jokes. I don't know how people do it really. Do they go around all the time thinking about them?

This totally made me laugh. Thanks for sharing the joke. Here's a joke my sister sent me.

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?"
"Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."

Thanks for the joke Miss Mendy! I appreciate the effort, and since we have to tell him about 365 jokes, they're not all going to be drop dead funny. I like a good short one, too. My family only has two jokes, and I will post them on my blog. They're not amazing, but just like a coach shouldn't ask his players to do anything he wouldn't, I will post a joke.
