Year End Satire Clearance



Time once again for the annual cleaning of the satire closet. It has to be done. After awhile, the puns pile up in a corner on top of the boxes of tried and true vaudeville routines (coated with dust of course!), and after awhile there is just so much junk jokes piled on top of double entendres, and it’s a mess. So we’ll haul out the material that didn’t make the cut for earlier blog entries and dust it off for display before consigning it to the Fibber McGee junk closet shop.

Material like this:

Question: How many Kim Jong Un’s does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Answer:  A light bulb? In power grid challenged North Korea? Surely you jest!

Okay, admittedly that was a trick question!

(EDITOR’S NOTE: AND A MOLDY ONE AT THAT! SOMEBODY GET THE HOOK!)

News item: Pope Francis takes the priests working inside the Vatican to task for doing such un-priestly things like gossiping.  Oh, to be a fly on those walls…

First Priest: Did you see the Bishops Nativity display?

Second Priest:  Yes, it’s the most pathetic crèche I’ve ever seen. 

First Priest: Where did he get it? Walgreeni’s? 

Second Priest: As a matter of fact, he did! He rushed right out after midnight mass on Christmas Eve!

(EDITOR’S NOTE: SECOND WARNING, ARTEEJEE!)

First Priest: I haven’t seen Monsignor Joseph around lately…

Second Priest: He’s on “retreat.”

First Priest: Oh no, not again!

Second Priest: Yes, caught looking at NAMBLA literature in the confessional again!

(EDITOR’S NOTE: OKAY, THAT’S IT! SECURITY!)

(Thank you for reading! And don’t call me Surely! Ba dum ching!)

Had to google 'Walgreen's' (just to be sure) and NAMBLA (which I didn't know) in order to be in on the jokes, by which time they'd started to go a little flat. The North Korean one squeezed through, I suppose.

Thanks for the laugh track, Spo!

Hi Raybeard! Yes, the jokes were flat and they can't all be winners.
