‘Any ... takers?’:
One last copy of John Farrell’s
lost Great American Novel has been found. … Should we bid the price up?Did you hear the one about the Pope?:
You may have already heard this BLOHARDs joke.
But I hadn't. It's really stupid and therefore funny. Here goes:
"On a tour of New England, the Pope took a few days off to visit Cape Cod for some sightseeing. He was cruising along the beach in the Popemobile when there was a commotion just off shore. A helpless man, wearing an Yankee hat, was struggling frantically to free himself from the jaws of a massive shark. As the Pope watched in horror, a speedboat pulled up with two men, both wearing Red Sox hats, inside. Without a moment's hesitation, one of the men commenced to beat the shark with a stick, while the other hauled the Yankee fan from the water. Shortly thereafter, the men pulled the now-dead shark into the boat too.
"Immediately the Pope shouted and summoned them to him. 'I give you my blessing for your brave actions. Even in the Holy See, I had heard that there was a bitter hatred between Red Sox fans and Yankee fans, but now I have seen with my own eyes that this is not true.' Having said this, he threw the Popemobile into gear and disappeared over a nearby dune.
"Back on the boat, the silence was broken by one of the men who asked 'Who was that?'
" 'That was the Pope,' the other replied. 'He is the conduit through whom God communicates His infallible wisdom to the hundreds of millions of Catholics around the world.'
" 'Well,' the first said, 'he doesn't know s*** about shark fishing. How's the bait holding up?' "
I like BLOHARDs
. Plenty more bad jokes over there.
