See You In The Funny Pages

John was lonely. He decided life would be more fun if he had a pet.

He went to the pet store and told the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet.

After some discussion, he finally bought a centipede, (100 leg bug),which came in a little white box to use for his house. He took the box home, found a good location for the box and decided he would start off by taking his new pet to the bar for a drink.

So he asked the centipede in the box, "Would you like to go to Frank's place with me and have a beer?"

Silence; there was no answer from his new pet. This bothered him a bit, so he waited a few minutes and then asked him again,"How about going to the bar and having a beer with me?"

Again, there was no answer, nothing but silence came from his new friend and pet. So, he waited a few minutes more, thinking about the situation.

He decided to ask him one more time. This time,putting his face up against the centipede's house and shouting,

'Hey, in there! Would you like to go to Frank's place and have a beer with me?'

Finally, a little voice came out of the box that said, "I heard you the first time! I'm putting my fucking shoes on!"

That shows you how my mind works. Even after seeing the cartoon at the top I thought it was going to be about how many beers the centipede could drink. I must be a lush.
Good One!

I somehow left this comment on yesterday's post as well. Oops.

Ha haha!! That's delightful.

If all bugs could talk, I bet their most uttered phrase would be, "No! Please don't kill me!"

Well why couldn't the centipede have just answered him the first time then?... Stupid centipede.

Also, why is the centipede talking?
