Joke Of The Day

Each evening bird lover Tom stood in his backyard, hooting like an owl - and one night, an owl called back to him.

For a year, the man and his feathered friend hooted back and forth.

He even kept a log of the "conversation." Just as he thought he was on the verge of a breakthrough in interspecies communication, his wife had a chat with her next door neighbor.

"My husband spends his nights, calling out to owls," she said.

"That's odd," the neighbor replied. "So does my husband." Then it dawned on them.

Bonus Joke:

Stranded in the swamp for days with no food, I had no choice but to hunt down large white birds and eat them. Through the whole ordeal, I found myself filled with egret.

(Amber Sims)

Extra Bonus Joke:

After twenty years, twenty years as head avian keeper at the zoo, Norman sat distractedly on his Ethan Allen post-colonial solid mahogany settee, pulling at his nose, and going over one more time the stupidity that had cost him his labor of love, because he knew that he was responsible for putting the locks on all the bird cages--the Bald Eagles, the tropical Toucans, the Marbled Godwits, all of them--but that miserable Thursday evening he had missed a cage for the very first time as he had daydreamed on by the Bay Gulls enclosure, and they had escaped, and there went his job--all because he forgot to put the locks on the Bay Gulls.

(Bill Crowley)

Extra Extra Bonus Joke:

A chief petty officer caught an AWOL sailor as he tried to sneak aboard ship.

Upon hearing the sailor's lame explanation, the petty officer told him, "Sweep every link on this anchor chain by morning, or it's the brig for you!"

The sailor picked up a broom, but before he could sweep, a tern landed on the handle. The lad picked the tern off and tossed it overboard.

The bird lit again on the broom handle, and was again tossed away. On and on, through the night, they went through the same routine.

In the morning, when the petty officer inspected, he found the chain still dirty. "What have you been doing all night?" he asked angrily.

"Honest, chief” came the reply, "I tossed a tern all night and couldn't sweep a link."
