The Butt of the Joke




Elephant Jokes were a fad in the 1960's.
(I wouldn't know, I wasn't born until 1977)





Q. How do you shoot a blue elephant?

A. With a blue elephant gun.





Q. How do you shoot a red elephant?

A. Hold his trunk shut until he turns blue,
then shoot him with the blue elephant gun.






Q. How do you shoot a purple elephant?

A. Paint him red, hold his trunk shut until he turns blue,
and then shoot him with the blue elephant gun.






I don't know why Elephants were the butt of the joke.

Why do elephants paint their toenails red?

So they can hide in cherry trees, silly!

How do you know if elephant has been hiding in the fridge? Footprints in the butter.

I loved elephant jokes when I was a kid. I remember that one...and the one about the cherry tree. I wonder if there is a book of them out there.

Elephants are silly. I think the huge butts make them a prime target.

Hey Michele, Why do ducks have webbed feet?

Why to help stamp out forest fires.

Why do elephants have big feet?

To stamp out the duck fires.

Mama Dawg said...

Butts in any way, shape or form are funny. Especially the noises that come out of them. At least in our house, they're funny!

Sally-Ann said...

Why did the elephant wear his red pyjamas to bed? His blue ones were in the was.
