joke mismatches

Sarah’s learned a bunch of jokes from one of her favorite shows – The Backyardigans.  However, she mixes them up a bunch.

For instance, from last night (J == me)

  • S: What’s big, red, and eats rocks?
  • J: I don’t know.
  • S: Because she’s ugly and smells bad!

The 2 original jokes:

  • What’s big, red, and eats rocks?
  • A big red rock-eater!

and:

  • Why does the Empress wear makeup and perfume?
  • Because she’s ugly and smells bad!

There’s lots of mismatches like that from Sarah, including these 2 she swaps the punch lines for:

  • Q: What does Tarzan say when he sees a herd of elephants?
  • A: Pupcorn!

 

  • Q: What is a dog’s favorite snack?
  • A: “Look, it’s a herd of elephants!”

Admittedly, it does get a bigger laugh from me, so perhaps it’s intentional – I’m not sure I’ll ever know.
