Funny Short Hamster Joke - Number Seven
More than just a pretty face
National Humor Month Funny Short Joke Number Seven
Up to now, I have not included any ‘guy in a bar’ jokes so I will remedy that with an appetizer and then the main course. Here's the appetizer:
Three guys in a bar are discussing a female co-worker who is trying without success to have a child. The first guy says, “I believe she is impregnable.” The second says, ‘I think she is inconceivable.” The third disagrees. “You are both wrong. Obviously, she is unbearable.”
Funny Joke Number Seven
A fellow who looks like he’s seen better days walks into a bar and orders a drink of Scotch. The bartender says, “I don’t want to hurt your feelings, buddy, but you need to put your money on the bar first.”
The customer – his name is Joe – says, “I understand, and you’re right. I am temporarily without funds. But if I am able to show you something you will not believe, will you give me a drink?”
“Okay,” says the bartender, “but only if it ain’t something improper.”
“It’s a deal,” Joe replies, as he reaches into his roomy coat pocket and pulls out a small live hamster. He whispers instructions into the animal’s tiny ear. The hamster looks around, spies a small toy piano on the back bar and jumps over to it. He puts his tiny paws on the keyboard and plays Chopin’s ‘Minute Waltz’ perfectly in less than 55 seconds. And then jumps back into Joe’s pocket.
The bartender’s mouth drops open. “You’re right! I don’t believe what I just saw and heard. I have never seen anything like that before. That hamster is a genius.” And he serves Joe his Scotch.
Joe finishes his drink and asks for another. The bartender says, “I ain’t made of money. You’ll have to show me another miracle or no drink.”
So Joe reaches into his other roomy coat pocket and pulls out a small live frog. He puts the frog on the bar and tells it to sing the song, “My Way.” The frog starts to sing the song with perfect pitch and a voice like Frank Sinatra.
The bartender cannot believe what he is seeing and hearing. Neither can another customer who entered the bar while the frog was performing. This customer quickly offers Joe $500 cash for the amazing singing frog. Joe agrees and hands the fellow the frog and pockets the money. The customer leaves quickly before Joe can change his mind.
The bartender yells at Joe, “What are you, some kind of an idiot? You just sold a one-of-kind, astounding singing frog to that guy for only $500 – that’s peanuts! You could make millions with that performing frog. First You Tube, then television, then movies . . . millions!”
“No, not really,” says Joe. “It was the hamster who was singing. He is also a ventriloquist.”
