Goofy joke day

Posted August 5, 2010

Brian Shrader and I have been called brothers in the bond of goofiness here at WRAL. "Goofy is good,"  we like to say. A hearty laugh can lighten the mood of everyone who hears it. Besides we deal in plenty of serious issues every day. We need a light hearted balance.

Today we would like you to help us celebrate Goofy Joke Day.

I'll start with the help of Facebook friend Lynda Everett who asks: "Is it okay for vegetarians to eat animal crackers?"

And from WRAL Meteorologist Nate Johnson who asks: "Where do men of ice work?

Answer: "In cubicles, of course."

The person who posts the best goofy joke will receive an autographed photo of the WRAL Morning News Team wearing slightly goofy smiles.

Keep it clean but make it fun.

    A mom was in the kitchen seeing how much trouble here 3 year old was having putting on his shoes. "Sweetie, I think your shoes are on the wrong feet." The boy left the room and quickly returned, looked up to her, and said " Mommy, you're wrong, these are my feet."

    Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the craft.
    Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.

    A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse.

    "But why?", they asked, as they moved off.

    "Because," he said," I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer."

    A group of friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise funds. Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not. He went back and begged the friars to close. They ignored him. So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to "persuade" them to close.

    Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close up shop.

    Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that only Hugh can prevent florist friars.
