Competition #5: The Kangaroo Joke
Quote:A kangaroo walks into a bar and orders a vodka martini. The bartender gives the kangaroo his drink and the kangaroo gives him a $10 bill.

The bartender figures kangaroos don't know anything about money and only gives him $2 back in change, then says, "We don't get many kangaroos in here."

The kangaroo says, "And at eight bucks for a martini you're not going to see very many more!" and walks out.

Above, the Kangaroo Joke. Competitors are invited to retell this joke in the style of a genre, author or famous celebrity.

So, this is probably my favorite competition, to the point where I can still recite from memory some of the entries twenty or so years since I misplaced the book it was in. Henny Youngman is, of course, easy -- it was the original joke word for word. But my favorite of them all was the Edgar Allan Poe pastiche:

Quote:Once upon a midnight dreary
Waiting for the owner Cleary
For to come and take me weary
From the bar and lock the door,
In there came a hopping mammal
To the bar and lit a Camel.
Then it ordered a martini --
Damnedest thing I ever saw.

"Vodka," it said, "Stolichnaya.
Pile the ice a little higher.
Less vermouth, I like it dryer.
And an olive, por favor."
Thinking fast to make a few bucks,
Back from ten I gave it two bucks,
Saying, "You're a strange one, mister,
Never seen your type before."
"At these prices? Nevermore!"

The Kangaroo Joke, in the style of Steven Wright

A kangaroo walks into a bar, orders a martini, and gets shortchanged. The barman says "We don't get many kangaroos here." The kangaroo answers "At this price, you won't get many more."
