A String Walks into a Bar

A string walked into a bar, hopped on the barstool, and said, “Bartender, gimme a beer.” The bartender said, “I’m sorry, sir, we don’t serve strings here.”

Disappointed, the string hopped down from the stool and went to the next bar. He hopped on the barstool and said, again, “Bartender, gimme a beer.” The bartender said, “I’m sorry sir, we don’t serve strings here.”

The string continued down the row of bars in this fashion. At every bar, he hopped on the barstool and said, “Bartender, gimme a beer.” The bartender at every bar in turn said, “I’m sorry sir, we don’t serve strings here.”

Finally he got to the last bar in the area. He was tired, he was sweaty, all he wanted was a beer. He trudged inside, climbed on the barstool, and said, “Bartender, gimme a beer.” This bartender, too, said, “I’m sorry, sir, we don’t serve strings here.”

Tired and angry, the string walked outside to think. He was a hard-working string. He deserved a beer. Finally, he came up with an idea. He had a passerby tie him up into a bow and frazzle his ends. Then he went back into the bar, and climbed up on the barstool. “Bartender, gimme a beer!” he said loudly.

The bartender looked him over critically, and finally yelled, “Hey, aren’t you that string that was in here a few minutes ago?”

The string replied coolly, “Nope, I’m a frayed knot.”

The Piano Tuner

THE PIANO TUNER

A man moved to another state where he didn’t know anyone. In the move, his old piano was jarred, and of course it needed to be tuned when the man arrived.

So he asked around, and was told that Earl Opporknockity was the best piano tuner in the area. The man called Earl and hired him to tune his piano.

Earl had a keen ear and a deft touch, and did a wonderful job tuning the old piano. The man was able to play beautiful music once again, and was very pleased.

After a year or so the old piano started producing sour notes again. So the man called Earl, and asked him to come work his magic on the old piano again.

To the man’s surprise, Earl refused, saying “Sorry, I can’t accept the job.”

“Why not?” the man wanted to know. “I’ll pay you twice as much as last time if you’ll just come tune my piano.”

“Haven’t you heard?” Earl asked, “Opporknockity only tunes once.”

The Siege

The SIEGE

A royal castle was under siege from an infidel army. The only hope was to send one of the knights to get help, but the problem was that all of the horses had been killed in the battle.

“We must get help,” said the king.

“I know,” replied the leader of his army, “but we have no horses. If a knight goes on foot, he will be slain at once.”

“Is there not another animal he can ride?” demanded the king. “What about that mighty wolfhound? It could surely bear the weight of a man.”

“No, no,” pleaded the army leader. “The wolfhound is too dangerous. Look at its snarling teeth. I wouldn’t send a knight out on a dog like this.”

The Contest

THE CONTEST

There was a man who entered a local paper’s pun contest. He sent in ten different puns, in the hope that at least one of the puns would win. Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.

The Leaf

THE LEAF

A little boy opened the big family bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages.

“Mama, look what I found,” the boy called out.

“What have you got there, dear”?

With astonishment in the young boy’s voice, he answered, “I think it’s Adam’s underwear!”
