My friend Jeff Cogswell at Q104 (yes, Q104. Not Z103. Not Hal FM. How did that rumour get started, anyway?) is asking his listeners this evening to call in or leave a message on his Facebook page. In order to win 4 passes to see a movie this Thursday night, you have to tell him the world's worst joke.
I have 3 entries, so far, in this far-reaching contest.
Do you want to know what they are?
The first one, Patricia messed up. I called in to the station, 4511043. No one picked up, so I hung up. A moment later, the phone rang. It was Cogsy himself. After I picked up, so did Patricia. She threw off my amazing comedic timing.
Here it goes.
Bevore you make decide who had the worst joke, please consider mine.
Patricia didn't get it. Jeff laughed, but I was nervous because my betrothed was also on the line. It could have been delivered better.
Cogsy and I talked for a moment about the amazing "Halifax Radio Memories" Facebook page that you have to join if you haven't already. We rang off.
However, I was undaunted.
Unwilling to give up!
I put forth two more entries.
Wanna hear them? Or, rather more appropriately, read them?
2. Why did the monkey fall out of the tree?
Because it was dead!
I was not yet finished. I had to inflict Cogsy's Facebook page with at least one more entry. One more pathetic attempt to win these ticket to some movie I haven't heard a damned thing about.
3. How many women with PMS does it take to change a lightbulb?
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE??!!!!
So, which one do you think will win, ladies and gentlemen? What is your, er, least favourite joke?
See you tomorrow! Please?
