We all need a good laugh!

With all of the gloomy and depressing news, statistics, and general BS floating around the Twitterverse, it’s about time we do something to lift up our spirits.

I’d like to hear your favorite biking-related jokes.

Since this isn’t a barroom and I can’t throw out the first drunk, I’ll throw out the first joke (compliments of Granddaughter Woo):

Why do some bikes have kickstands? Because they are too tired to stand up by themselves (rim shot!).

Ouch! Let’s hear your best (or worst) jokes.

See you along the I-O-Way next whenever.

It’s not a bicycle joke, but the reference to the boombox reminded me of the joke that contained the best puns (or the worst, depending on how you feel about them) ever found in a joke.

A man and his wife lived in a condo along the Florida coast. Every day, they would see countless sunbathers, tanners, and people just lying out on their towels on the sand, radios playing, sun-tan oil nearby, and usually a cooler of cold ones close to hand as well.

They also observed a young woman carrying a tote bag, walking up and down the beach. She would approach the people on the beach and talk to them. Every once in a while, the person on the beach would hand the young lady some money, and receive something from within the tote bag.

After several days of watching this, the wife wasn’t sure just what was going on. Suspecting possible illegal activity, the wife convinced her husband to go down to the beach the next day and take his place among the sun-worshippers and see just what happened.

The next day the man took a chaise lounge, an umbrella, and his portable radio down to the beach. Sure enough, it wasn’t very long before the young lady approached him. They spoke for a couple of minutes; he handed her some money, and she gave him something from the tote bag. After about another hour, he folded up the lounge chair and returned to his condo and his wife, who had been anxiously watching from the window.

“So,” she asked, “did you find out what’s going on out there?”

“Yes, I did,” her husband said. “I talked with her, and she’s a very sweet, nice young woman trying to earn some extra money.”

“Well, how is she doing it? Is she a hooker, setting up appointments for later? Is she peddling drugs? Is she selling beer or liquor without a license? What? What?”

“No, nothing like that. It’s all perfectly legitimate. In fact, when she told me what she was doing even I purchased some from her,” and he reached into his beach bag and produced a package of batteries.

The wife takes the batteries in her hand. “Batteries?” she questions. “What’s with the batteries?”

“Well, it’s like this,” explained her husband. “Her name is Sally, and she’s a battery salesperson.”

The wife stood mute for a minute until the realization hit her. Then she said, “You mean…?”

The husband said, “Yes. Sally sells ‘C’-cells along the seashore.”
