" Oobladi Ooblada"


The rules are simple to win: No "xxx" jokes, sorry. Kit Menkin cannot win  (relatives, friends and employees can enter and win).

Winners of previous months can also win a second or third time - There is no limit.

Please send 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 winner’s choice).

Dan Sorkin

Winner of the Joke

of the Month

for August




A fifteen year-old boy came home with a Porsche and

his parents shouted, "Where did you

get that car???!!!"


He calmly told them, "I bought it today."


"With what money?" demanded his parents. "We know

what a Porsche costs."


"Well," said the boy, "this one cost me fifteen dollars."


So the parents demanded, "Who would

sell a car like that for fifteen dollars?" they said.


"It was the lady up the street," said the boy." I don't

know her name--they just moved in. She saw me ride

past on my bike and asked me if I wanted to buy a

Porsche for fifteen dollars."


"Dear God," moaned the mother, "she must be a child

molester. Who knows what she will do next? John, you go

right up there and see what's going on."


The boy's father walked up the street to the house

where the lady lived and found her out in the yard

calmly planting petunias! He introduced himself as the

father of the boy to whom she had sold a Porsche for

fifteen dollars and wanted to know why she did it.


"Well," she said, "this morning I got a phone call from

my husband. I thought he was on a business trip, but it

seems he has run off to Hawaii with his secretary and

doesn't intend to come back. He asked me to sell his

new Porsche and send him the money. So I did.

-- congratulations, Dan!!!!
