There are a bunch of teens in the library right now doing a scavenger hunt, and apparently one of the items on their list is to get a librarian to tell them a joke. I only know two jokes. One of them is about Sarah Palin. This is the other one:
Q: Why doesn't Hitler drink tequila?
A: Because it makes him mean.
I also thought of one time when Mr. Awesome was asked to tell a joke in a job interview. I can't remember what he actually said, but when he told our friends the story, his response was, "Don't you think it's weird that we say that we TAKE a shit, when we really LEAVE a shit? I mean WHAT. Is the DEAL. With THAT."
Anyway, for the teenagers I had to resort to the old "Sam and Janet Evening" knock-knock joke. I've never had a group of people look at me with such a mixture of pity and befuddlement as those teens did when I started singing a show tune from South Pacific.
