Joke of the Week: Murder, He Wrote


It's Monday, which means it's time for your weekly dose of locavore levity: the Joke of the Week! This week's joke comes from Burlington's Kendall Farrell. Take it away, Kendall…

I have a great good person test: When you watch crime shows, do you worry about getting murdered? Or do you worry about getting caught murdering somebody?

Are you sitting there thinking, Well, I guess I'm never going camping alone again. Or, are you sitting there like, Well, I'd remove all his teeth, that's what I'd do. They'd never catch me."
About That Joke
Says Farrell: Watching a ton of crime shows made me realize that I'm maybe a terrible person. I've been working on this joke for probably about a year now. I do a much longer version when I'm onstage.
