National Humor Month Funny Short Joke Number Seventeen

Updated on April 26, 2012

National Humor Month Funny Short Joke Number Seventeen

In my previous joke, Joke Number Sixteen, although a dog was one of the protagonists, he had a non-speaking part. In this joke, the dog has dialogue. Fair is fair!

Did you hear the one that goes: “A man walks into a bar . . .”

Oh, no, you must be thinking,

Not another man walks into a bar joke.

Why not? It’s the most fun you can have

Without drinking.

Well, almost the most fun.

Joke Number Seventeen

A man with a dog walks into a bar,

Sits down and puts the dog on a stool.

The bartender says, “Wait a minute,

Serving dogs is against the rules.”


“So pick up your dog right now

And get outta here – take a walk.”

“This is no ordinary dog,” says the man,

My dog, Prince, can actually talk.”


“A dog that can talk?” says the bartender,

“Now that is something I’d like to see.

If your dog really can talk,

I’ll serve you all you can drink … for free.”


The man says to the dog,

“I now want you to speak.

I’ll ask you some questions,

Give me the answers I seek.”


“Prince, what do you see

On the outside of a tree?”

‘Bark!’


‘Right,” says the man, “now don’t stop.

What lies just above a house top?”

’Roof!’


“Correct, Prince, you are the smartest.

Now - name a famous French abstract artist.”

‘Arp!’


“Excellent. Now here is a real test,

Who was the greatest baseball player, better than all the rest?

‘Ruth!’


The bartender is furious.

“Take that dog and get outta here.

That dog is just ordinary,

I should throw you both out on your ear.”


When they are back on the street,

Prince turns to his owner and says,

“The bartender was upset when I said, 'Babe Ruth.’

Do you think I should have said Willie Mays?”

      Hi, Gus. Yes, that joke was resurrected from long, long ago. I do miss Nicols and May - they were supremely creative writers and performers back in the day. Thanks for visiting these funny joke hubs of mine.

      Good Doctor bj - Good joke. Good enough such that it was used in one of their TV ads by Mike Nichols and Elaine May back in the old days. Jax is long gone now, but it is great to see that joke again.

      Gus :-)))

      Hi, christopher. Wasn't that just retribution when the guy who tried to push the dog in the water fell in himself? I love that sort of Karma. So my articles are a tonic? What a lovely compliment, m'luv.

      Hi, Marcy, thanks for stopping by. That little flying dog in the video did look a bit disoriented, didn't he? I think the pilot must have hit a wind shear or performed some acrobatic maneuver. Betcha the dog won't want to go up in an airplane soon again.

      Hi, John, thanks for the visit and loving the joke and the video. You are pretty clever yourself with your multi-ethnic joke. Must be hundreds like that one. Which I haven't included because I'm trying to be PC . . . sometimes.

      Thanks, Ruby for loving that dog and this joke. Prince is rather special. And I knew you would enjoy the video with that inquisitive, daring little girl. When she grows up, she may becom a veterinarian ... or a proctologist!

      The best bit was when the man fell in to the water when he tried to push the dog in. Hilarious! That really got me laughing. Your articles are a tonic. They should be available on the National Health Service.

      Great video - I loved the little clip in the airplane with the dog flying around in the back seat. I wonder if they flew upside down or something for that shot; there were papers drifting around in the cockpit, too.

      Loved the joke and the videos, drbj. Did you hear about the Englishman, Scotsman and Irishman who walk into a bar and belly up to the bar?

      The barman says, "Is this some kind of a joke?"

      Keep 'em coming.

      I am giggling over the video. Did she have to touch him there. I loved the part where the guy was shoving the dog towards the water and fell in. The joke was great and the cartoon was funny too. This was a good one.
