ME: Did you blow Bubbles when you were younger?
ME: I just saw him and he was asking about you.
This is one of my favorite jokes. It is kind of like when someone says, "Give me a hand?" and you clap. Annoying yet funny. I don't know why but it is. Every so often I try the bubbles joke. It has been a while.
This weekend Lauren kind of used it on me. I took a sip of soda and it went down the wrong pipe. I started choking and wheezing. Lauren asked if I was okay and I responded the best I could spitting out the words. "Bubbles,..(cough)...went down...my..(cough).. throat..the wrong way."
Without offering me assistance or sympathy, Lauren said "Oh Yeah. I just saw him and he looked happy to me."
I hate it when my jokes backfire.
Do you have any jokes? What are your old stand-bys?
