Because yesterday's Funny was a repeat funny...

I gotta hand it to Stacey... she always calls me out when I repeat a joke. There is a very simple reason for why this sometimes happens... every time I run across a funny joke, I copy it to a word file on my computer, to later post into my "Funny on a..." posts. Sometimes I forget to delete the joke from the file, and I come across it a week or two later and say "hey! that's really funny!" and post it again.

The up side is that you, the reader, get to see which jokes really tickled my funny bone. The down side is that you already know the frickin punchline. It's an imperfect system in an imperfect world folks, but I will do my best to avoid such mistakes in the future. In the meantime, here's another joke to compensate for yesterday's absent-mindedness...

One day a traveling salesman was driving down a back country road at about 30 mph when he noticed that there was a three-legged chicken running alongside his car.

He stepped on the gas but at 50 miles per hour. The chicken was still keeping up. After about a mile of running the chicken ran up a farm lane and into a barn behind an old farm house.

The salesman had some time to kill so he turned around and drove up the farm lane. He knocked at the door and when the farmer answered he told him what he had just seen.

The farmer said that he was a geneticist and had developed this breed of chicken because he, his wife and his son each like a drumstick when they have chicken and this way they only have to kill one chicken.

"That''s the most fantastic thing I've ever heard," said the salesman. "How do they taste?"

"I don't know," said the farmer. "We've never caught one."
