Hump Day Humor?

Found this in the Reader's Digest and had a giggle so decided to share. Apologies in advance to all lawyers, but if you give me enough jokes I'm sure I can insult everybody at some point.

On a trip together, a Hindu, a rabbi and a lawyer stop at a farmhouse and ask to stay the night. There's space for two, but one will have to sleep in the barn.
"I'll go," the Hindu volunteers. A few minutes later, the lawyer and the rabbi hear a knock.
"There's a cow in the barn," the Hindu says. "A cow is sacred, and I cannot sleep with a sacred beast."
"No problem, I can do it," the rabbi says, grabbing his pillow. But minutes later, the rabbi knocks.
"There's a pig in the barn. It's an unclean animal - my belief forbids me to be near such a creature."
With a tired sigh, the lawyer heads out. Almost immediately, there's a third knock at the door.
It's the cow and the pig.

Don't forget the contest for Out of This World is still going on - until 9:00 p.m. (central) Thursday night, with the winner announced here Friday morning.

Edit: I just found out that our Brandy's furry baby kitten Turtle has died. Cyber hugs to you Brandy, I'm so sorry.

That's a good one. What were the Rabbi, Hindu and a lawyer doing together in the first place? No one should be insulted by a joke. That's just dumb. It's not like it was pointed at them. Maybe a guilt complex at work. Anyway thanks for the laugh and a big NC hug to all.

I've heard that one before. Being married to a lawyer means I hear them all. I always liked that one.

That's a funny joke. :) Being a blonde I'm quite used to hearing jokes. I know. Hard to believe, right? ;)

Brandy said...

Thanks Bailey for remembering us. Turtle was well loved and is being missed. She's in loving hands now, as she was here on earth.

Diane said...

It's still a bit early in the morning here and I had to read that several times ... doh!

Hugs to Brandy.

The avatar was not lost on me this time! Good one.

Sorry about the little kitty.

Shirley said...

I heard that one, but I love it so it's great to see it again.

Hugs to Brandy. As most of us know, it's a terribly sad and difficult time.

(((BRANDY))) so sorry !!!

Melissa Marsh said...

Heh. I love jokes like that. I wanted to be a lawyer once. Glad I changed my mind. (Not that there's anything WRONG with being a lawyer - there's just too many of them!)

Susan said...

I enjoyed that one! LOL

Bailey - no I don't have a list of covers. I just suffer from a bad case of not being able to write a sentence that says what I mean!

Bailey Stewart said...

Oh Susan, but you're cute and that makes up for it. *gg*

Fannie said...

Brandy, I am so sorry about Turtle. Pets are like family. My little 7 yr. old grandson lost his hamster, Chuck, Monday morning so we are in mourning also. A big hug to you and everyone else.

Bailey Stewart said...

Fannie - so sorry about Chuck. Cyber hugs to you and especially to your grandson.

Tori Lennox said...

I laughed out loud at this and it cheered me up after being over at Brandy's.

Stacy Dawn said...

glenice said...

hello, just checking in...

Prayers to you for your mom!!! I hope you are getting some more help now.

Brandy-I am very sorry about your kitty--I just happen to have a couple if you need a new love :)

Our kitty is still struggling-but she does seem to be doing a little better. She no longer wants to just lay in her bed, so she drags herself around the house...totally pittiful site!

Snort!!

Brandy said...

Fannie I am so sorry to hear about your Grandson's pet. It's so hard on everyone, but most especially young people.
Glenice, I have 6 other fur-babies, and love everyone of them. But, I don' think we'll bee looking for any new babies right now. Thanks for the offer. Glad to hear yours is feeling better.
Bailey, thanks for taking the time to remember us when you have your hands full.
Thanks to all for your commiseration.
