The Friday Groaner!!!!!!!!!!!!

Darlene Costner of Darlene's Hodgepodge sent along this gem! It's a seriously good groooaaannn!!!!!!!!! Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!

A young man was in love with a beautiful girl. Sadly, the woman did not return his feelings despite his trying for months to get her attention. Finally, out of desperation, he visited a group of witches and asked them to create a love potion. They refused him on ethical grounds. They did, however, give him a bottle of small white pellets with the instruction to bury one in her yard at midnight for a month. The man returned five weeks later, elated and thankful. He and his beloved were to marry in two weeks!!!!

"Ahhhhhhhhhhh," said one of the witches . . .

(Now sing the punchline!)

"Nothing says loving like something from
the coven . . . and pills buried say it best."

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!

  7. Eunoia: It is a very American thing. There used to be a commercials for baking supplies (flour, cake mixes, etc.) that had a theme song: "Nothin' says lovin' like somethin' from the oven and Pillsbury says it best."

  9. Thanks for liking my pun. Of course, like everyone else, I just stole it. I can't take credit for writing it.

  10. And a fine and witty and wacky group of thieves we are, Darlene! I think the point of any type of joke is for it to be shared. Thank you for sharing the gift of laughter with us.

  12. So Pillsbury sell baking supplies? I get it now Kay. One of those culturally dependant puns that doesn't travel. I wonder how often I unwittingly do that too?

  13. Cop Car -- you and everyone else on Mondays and Fridays!!! LOL

    Stu: Most groaners are universal but a few are rooted in our culture. I haven't noticed that you do it but I'm well-read enough that I probably don't notice. A couple of my long-time friends here call me The Almanac because I supply answers to weird questions.
