COMICAL COUPLETS

 

 

COMICAL COUPLETS

 

If sheep count sheep to go to sleep

do hake eat steak to stay awake?

 

Have you ever wondered how you’d alight

if you ever flew on a non-stop flight?

 

Attendance is thin on the ground today,

It seems like the fat ones have stayed away.

 

You’re an artist so tell me and be quite frank:

How can anyone ‘draw a blank’ ?

 

Last autumn I went out with my daughter

to look for a source of spring water

    "Knock, knock"
    "Who's there?"
    "Knock"
    "Knock who?"
    "Knock,knock"

      Says I quite modestly:
      'It's me,
      it's me, it's me,
      its me, its me,'
      Honestly !

      Heehee. Good write and pic. My very old joke is 'Why is abbreviation such a long word?' People have given up laughing at it. Well, I might only know about 3 jokes, and they've heard it 100 times! lol.

        Why has lisp got an 's' in it?

        Why can't you make another word using all the letters in 'anagram'.

        If a word is misspelt in the dictionary how do you know?

        • orchidee

          Aww, that's the 3 jokes I know. Now I don't know any, to tell anyone else! heehee.

        • orchidee

          Dunno who's there - can't hear the door knocker. Try ringing the bell!

            Do pilots take crash courses?

                Are bears bare? Great job Michael! A very right write!

                • Michael Edwards

                  I do declare
                  if ever you dare
                  to scare a bear
                  it wouldn’t be fair
                  cos it might lose its hair
                  and a bear that is bare
                  would get goose pimples.

                    Humor and sculpting, Wow! Funny stuff that, the jokes not the sculptures. And you made it into a poem as well. Well, I enjoyed a laugh and for that I am grateful. Nice work. - Phil A.
