    He says to the owner of the shop "I'd like a mouse organ please"

    The owner says "That's funny we had another mouse come in and ask for a mouse organ yesterday"

    The mouse replies "Oh yeah, that would've been our Monica"

    Does anyone get this rather simple joke? It had me creased up (or maybe ROTFLMAO) but the lack of responses suggest that it doesn't travel well!

    Mouse Organ?

    Our Monica?

    Oh well - have a good weekend guys!
     
  5. Hey, man! - I thought it was pretty funny, but I am from England. What is it they say about the UK and the USA? "Two countries divided by a sense of humour (humor)"

    Well, what do you expect? The UK gives The World "The Goons", "Marty Feldman", "Monty Python"... The USA is responsible for... for... for... "Jerry Lewis...(!?!?!?)"...

    Well, OK - I'd forgotten about The Marx Brothers, W C Fields, Mel Brooks... Emo Philips... Wierd Al...

    I understand the pun, but not the joke.

    Probably amusing to the under-tens.

    Hmmmn Christopher - A joke, something said or done to evoke laughter or amusement, an amusing or ludicrous incident or situation. A pun, a humorous play on words, to use a word in a double sense, especially when the contrast of ideas is ludicrous.

    So you understand the pun, but not the joke?!? Funny to under tens?!?

    You don't sound like a lot of . . . pun . . . to be around - ho ho ho
