This encounter led one of my coworkers to share a joke that she and her brother enjoy. It's really the first part of a joke that you can insert your favorite line into.
"What is a pirate's favorite...?" You fill in the blank.
Trying to be the funny aunt, I shared this joke with my two eldest nephews over the weekend. I started off with this one..."What is a pirate's favorite fast food restaurant?"
Now you have to wait for the answer...here's a photo of the red-headed nephew after a dip in the Ohio River over the weekend.
The answer: ARRRRRRRRRby's!
I ran through a few more, such as:
What is a pirate's favorite place to visit in St. Louis?
What is a pirate's favorite kind of socks?
What is a pirate's favorite state?
What is a pirate's favorite lettuce?
Aren't those fun?
Now, the red-head above giggled, but I don't think he really grasped the concept. He kept asking me what a pirate's favorite tree is and the expecting me to come up with the answer. I just couldn't do it. He thought and thought and finally came up with "a beARRRRRy tree." Not quite right, but a valiant effort.
Here's my final pirate joke..."What is a pirate's favorite Bible story?"
If you can't figure out the answers, let me know and I'll share!
