Captain Caption XXXVI

"An infidel,  a monkey,  and a goat walk into a bar.  When they get 
inside, they're told that alcohol is expressly forbidden under sharia law.   So the owner beheads the infidel, eats the monkey, and marries
 the goat.  Hey, you've been a great audience.  Now let's get on with
 the stoning."


NOTE:  Penwasser Place will re-open the last week of June.  So, you've got that going for you.

    1. Probably not because I think tomatoes are halaal.
      Back for good the last week of June.

  2. I guess that saves on a meal. Back you say, so does that mean the book is done at your bay?

    1. The book's not done
      but half's better than none.
      So from me, nary a tear
      my goal's the end of the year.
      And I have more time to write...sob
      'Cause next week, I won't have a job.

  3. It's the way he tells them in Persian that gets the laughs. That and the beard.

  4. You'd think he'd close the ceremony with a misogynistic joke.

    1. Monkeys and goat sex trumps misogyny.

  5. Don't you just hate it when a perfectly good stoning is delayed by a bad joke?

  6. Woo, reopening! I'm now interested in middle eastern jokes. They don't really seem like a comedic bunch.

    1. Oh no, you get some camel milk in them and they're riots. Or they start riots. Something like that.

  7. It's the deadpan way he delivers the jokes that always makes me laugh.

  11. Understandable. Also, can you make object dodging by a key note speaker a video game?

    1. Oh, that would be hysterical. George Bush (or whomever you choose) dodging a shoe!

    1. I'm looking forward to it. One more week and I'll have plenty of time. Of course, I won't have a job, either. But let 's not dwell on that.

  14. Is that the alternative Santa Claus?

    Even better news and I note how humble you are announcing your triumphant blogging return. Gosh, time to go body-surfing in that audience!

    1. Well, my whole life has been a series of "Knock Knock" jokes and "Pull My Finger" gags so it's been easy.
      I plan on writing tomorrow...

  19. Shouldn't he marry the monkey and eat the goat. But, I guess you can't milk the monkey and make cheese. What am I thinking?

    1. If you milk the monkey, you'll have a friend for life.
