After all was said and done
There was more to be said, for fun
Not to be outdone tonight, or ever again
I bought the world’s funniest joke from The Joke Man
I found him on line and he takes your credit card
He warns you right away that the people who hear your joke may die from laughing too hard
So, I took out life insurance on everybody who would be there there
I was going to collect big time and I didn’t care
So, I told my joke and had to flee
The guy on the sofa threw a heavy pillow at me.
Nobody laughed. Nobody smiled.
I ran out the door. I was beguiled.
