"JOKE OF THE MONTH"
The rules are simple to win: No "xxx" jokes, sorry. Kit Menkin cannot win (relatives, friends and employees can enter and win). Please note, if in the decision of the judges there is no "best" joke, a previous month may be included, and like in horseshoes, there are no ties. Winners of previous months can also win a second or third time - There is no limit.
me your favorite joke. The first one to send it, not only gets the credit,
but a good bottle of wine or a box of chocolates (the winners choice).
Winner for April 2003
of the Joke of the Month
Larry wakes up at home with a huge hangover. He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table. He sits up and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. Larry looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotless, clean.
So's the rest of the house. He takes the aspirins and notices a note on the table: "Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go shopping. Love you." So he goes to the kitchen, and sure enough there is a hot breakfast and the morning newspaper. His son is also at the table, eating.
Larry asks, "Son, what happened last night?"
His son says, "Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and delirious, broke some furniture, puked in the hallway, and gave yourself a black eye when you stumbled into the door."
Confused, Larry asks, "So, why is everything in order and so clean, and breakfast is on the table waiting for me?" His son replies, "Oh, that! Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off, you said, "Lady, leave me alone, I'm married'!"
Jerry's prize, a bottle of . One of the original judges chosen for the joke panel in 1998. An old friend, who I backed financial for US Congress ( unfortunately, he did not win ). He has been trying for years to win the joke contest, and ironically, as a judge on the panel, he did not vote for his own joke. Two-thirds of the panel vote for it, too, the highest of record ( there were also some very good jokes in the contest, as noted by the judges.)
"It is such a thrill to finally win the contest. I really never thought it'd happen," he said.
We asked him for a biography for readers who would not recognize his name.
" I'm attaching a picture of one of my passions and a word.doc with a resume attached. This way I'll avoid a long email. After 34 years with Morgan Stanley, the resume will show what else I've tried to do."
