Today’s Daily Prompt: Tell us a joke! Knock-knock joke, long story with an unexpected punchline, great zinger — all jokes are welcome!
Today I went to Lynchburg, TN, home of the famous Jack Daniels distillery. We ate at Miss Mary Bobo’s. I had wanted to do this for a very long time and was beginning to think I was the only one on the planet who hadn’t eaten there.
I saw today’s prompt and thought this joke was appropriate– a joke my uncle sent me via email just a few days ago.
Jack Daniels Fishing Story
I went fishing this morning, but after a short time I ran out of worms.
Then I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in its mouth.
Frogs are good bass bait.
Knowing the snake couldn’t bite me with the frog in its mouth, I grabbed it right behind the head, took the frog, and put it in my bait bucket.
Now the dilemma was how to release the snake without getting bit. SO, I grabbed my bottle of Jack Daniels and poured a little whiskey in its mouth. Its eyes rolled back, and it went limp.
I released the snake into the lake without incident and carried on fishing, using the frog.
Not long after, I felt a nudge on my foot. It was that damn snake…. with two more frogs.
Life is good.
