Listening to a co-worker tell a joke, I suddenly remembered something that happened years ago.
I had been talking to a friend in Florida. He ended the conversation with a really great blonde joke. Had me crying.
After I hung up the phone, I immediately called my parent's house to tell the joke to my youngest sister A., a blonde. My other sister, D., also a blonde, answered the phone and told me A. was over at a friend's house.
Well, it was one of those jokes that you just had to tell someone right away (of course I can't remember it at all now), so I started telling the joke to D. It was a bit long, but worth every second. I delivered the punch line, and I remember waiting expectantly for the huge laugh I knew was coming. And I waited. And I waited.
Then several seconds later, D. said, "Yeah, and?" Yup, right over her head.
I lost it. I gasped out, "I'll talk to you later!" Then I fell out of the chair onto the floor laughing. Yes, literally ROFL.
My wife walked into the living room and wanted to know what was so funny, but every time I tried to tell her, I lost it again. I think it was the next day before I could tell her the blonde didn't get the blonde joke.
Now, maybe you had to be there, but that, "Yeah, and?" was one of the funniest things I ever heard.
