Have you Heard the One About the Cow?

"Have you heard the one about the cows?"
"There were two of them."
Is that the funny part?"
"Wait. I was just pausing for dramatic effect. I'm getting to it. There were two of them standing on the hill and the first cow looks at the other cow-"
"Have I heard this one? This isn't the stupid 'moooo' thing is it?"
*insert snorting laughter*
"Oh, Matt!"
"Let me finish it."
*insert eye rolling"
"So the first cow looks at the second and cow and says, 'mooooo.' The fist cow says, 'Darn, I was going to say that!"
*insert more snorting laughter*

"You would think that was the first time you'd told the dumb joke..."
"Oh come on *more laughter* that was funny!"
"Babe, it was not funny when we met and 17 and you told me. It was not funny at 21 when I had to listen to you retell it to people on our honeymoon. It was not funny at at 25 when I had to watch you retell it to our new born son. It is not funny watching him, at aged 6, retell it to his friends. And it has not gotten any funnier listening to you still retelling it in your thirties. You need a new joke."
*insert thinking husband*
"Okay what about this one. There were two fish, and the first fish says to the-"
*insert me walking away*
*insert him still snorting with laughter*

What about you? Got any Friday Funnies to share? I don't want to hear the one about the cow or the fish. Otherwise, I am pretty open. Make me laugh. :)


  1. I love that image...Matt sounds like a light heart.

  2. Not fair! Not fair! What did the fish say? Glurp? I haven't heard that one.

    Straight From Hel

  3. LOL! But don't tell him I laughed... It was more at the situation than the joke. ;)

  4. When you posted this one on Rachelle's I cracked up!

    I'm so not funny- but thanks for the laughs. I love the picture by the way, just precious.

  5. Wish I did. :-)
    Cute post. I love the way you wrote it.

  6. Maybe Matt's related to my husband :))))

  7. I have just come over from Jason's place/his space and he managed to put a smile on my face, with his words written. Now you have managed to put laughter echoes within my Soul.
    Very funny, you.

  8. Omigosh, the pressure.


    This is my son's favorite joke, he told it to me at five and still tells it now. Maybe it's a guy thing.

    Q: Why did the race horse hide beind the tree?

    A: To change his jockey's.


    Probably only works in countries with jockey underwear, but still, I love it.

  9. That is the cutest darn picture and love the joke conversation!!

    Fresh out of jokes in my head right now. Sorry! But I'll try and think of one for you.

  10. That picture is just adorable. And I thought the cow joke was pretty cute- I might have to tell it to my daughter!

  11. I so want to meet both you and Matt. You sound amazing together. I usually don't get jokes and never remember them, so can't make you laugh today. Sorry.

  12. So a mushroom walks into a bar. Bartender says, "Hey, we don't serve your kind in here." And the mushroom says, "Why not? I'm a fungi!"



  13. Ha!

    This one is pretty bad... why was the mother owl worried about her son?

    Because he didn't give a hoot about anything. :0)

  14. Love stuff like that! The simpler the harder I laugh!

  15. I thought they were funny too!

    When my son and I used to drive to school together each day, he'd beg me to make up jokes (he was in first grade).

    Here's my lame attempt.

    Q: Why did the cow cross the road?
    A: To see who was moooo-ving in.

    Hey, he laughed.

  16. *sigh* I got nothin'! But I sure needed a good dose of comic relief. Thanks :)

  17. hee hee
    Oh am so bad at telling jokes
    I loved this one
    THANK you dear Tabitha!
    Nice weekend dear!

  18. Here was our daughter's favorite:
    What do you get when you cross a cow and a duck? Milk and quackers. Perhaps that would be "biscuits" to you...

  19. I got a kick out of that one on Rachelle's blog. I can so totally picture this conversation between you and your hubby.

    Funny jokes?

    Chuck Norris can slam a revolving door.

    That is so totally my husband's sense of humor. He thinks Chuck Norris jokes are hilarious. To each his own, right?

  20. My husband and I have a similar sort of thing going with me knowing all his silly jokes and enduring years of hearing them told different ways to different audiences. They would take too long to tell, and are of the 'have to be there' variety, but I will tell you this:

    Picture a clean cut engineer and me out on our first date 20 some years ago. Deadpan, he tells me he leads a double life and he's actually Ted Nugent. It took me around a year to figure out that he wasn't nuts - at least not in a concerning way.

  21. I still say your husband is a keeper! And that photo is absolutely the cutest.

  22. So the only joke I can ever remember is from a Laffy Taffy:

    Why did the cucumber blush?

    He saw the salad dressing...

    Your hubby and I must be related. :)

  23. hehehe!!! how delightful. xx

  24. snicker snicker snicker - ahhh love :)

  25. thank for those comments. You guys made me laugh. I see there are quite few out there who share my husband's sense of humor :)

    Love those jokes :)

  26. So funny! At least you know one joke. I can't remember any for the life of me.

  27. What did one octupus say to the other?

    I want to hold your hand hand hand hand hand hand hand hand.


  28. Oh, I enjoyed this post but profess to have little or no slapstick humor...except when it comes to the "Who's On First" routine by Laurel & Hardy and "Being There" by Peter Sellers.

    Love your blog, girl.

  29. No, I hadn't heard that one. :)

  30. I share your husband's sense of humour I think BECAUSE it's silly. Love that picture, Tabitha.

  31. Too funny. Wish I'd had that joke as a child living on a dairy. :-)

    Great picture - you find the best ones ever.
