That deserves a drink!

Good to see spider again.

This joke had a place of honor in the series Lost.

Like the things we tell kids and pretend they’re jokes, but by the time they’re nine, they’ve heard real jokes.


#6

I like it! It’s a corny dad joke and sufi joke in one.


#7

Hahahahahaha!


#8

I incorrectly read this as “Spider Jerusalem” and was expecting a much more messed up joke…


#9

I misread your comment as “Spider Jesus”. What a cool name.

Heard another classic English one t’other day.

What’s brown and sticky?

A stick.

Yeah, that’s one of my all-time favorite stupid jokes. Plus it’s more universally understood than, say:

What do you get when you cross an elephant with a zebra?

V
Elephant*Zebra*sin(theta)

What do you get when you cross an elephant with a mountain-climber?

Nothing. You can’t do a cross product with a scaler.

I texted that joke to my wife while she was at a convention. I can’t tell if she was amused or not.

I think I may have slipped into another dimension (Is it berenstein or berenstain here?), I thought Spider was dead.
