An Easter Tale

A man is driving along a highway and sees a rabbit jumping across the middle of the road. He swerves to avoid hitting it, but unfortunately it's too late.

The driver, a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulls over and gets out to see what has become of the rabbit. Much to his dismay, not only is the rabbit dead, but... it's also the Easter Bunny.

The driver feels so awful that he begins to cry. A beautiful blonde woman driving down the highway sees him crying on the side of the road and pulls over. She steps out of her car and asks him what's wrong.

"I feel terrible!" he explains. "I accidentally hit the Easter Bunny with my car and KILLED HIM."

The blonde says, "Don't worry."

She runs back to her car and pulls out a spray can. Then she walks over to the limp, dead Easter Bunny, bends down, and sprays the contents onto it.

The Easter Bunny jumps up, waves its paw at the two of them, and starts to hop down the road. Ten feet away he stops, turns around and waves again. He hops down the road another 10 feet, turns and waves, hops another ten feet, turns and waves, and repeats this again and again, until he has hopped out of sight.

The man is astonished. He runs over to the woman and asks, "What's in that can? What did you spray on the Easter Bunny?"

The woman turns the can around so that the man can read the label.

It says...

(Are you ready for this?)

(Are you sure?)

(You know you're going to be sorry.)

(Last chance.)

(OK, here it is.)

It says, "Hair Spray: Restores life to dead hair, and adds permanent wave."

Don't credit me. Credit Doug. I think this one is quite funny, and I'd like to claim it as my own discovery, but that wouldn't be right.

You could have claimed it, but it had Doug written all over it. Funny!

If I were you, I would take credit for the great travelogues and give the blame for the jokes to someone else :-)

If I were God, I'd give a great reward to anyone who made me laugh.

Laughter is a life-lengthening tonic, don't you think?

I second Brian R's comment.

You folks need to understand how truly low my taste in humor sometimes is and stop being surprised at what makes me laugh out loud.

But humor is the Elixir of Life!

Grandmère Mimi said...

Well said, Göran, my sweet!

I like it too. I needed it. Thanks, Mimi.

Counterlight said...

You're tastes in humor can't be lower than mine.

You haven't seen me howl with laughter through a 3 Stooges short.

I think Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles is one of the truly great monuments of cinema.

Grandmère Mimi said...

Counterlight, I'd whoop and holler when the the Three Stooges shorts showed at the movies, and Blazing Saddles is very, very funny.
