Joke of the Week: In the Know


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 New Haven's Katie Gillespie. Take it away, Katie…

My friends in relationships are always telling me that when I'm with the right person, I'll just know. But I check Amazon reviews before I buy a toothbrush. Literally, the only thing I've ever "just known" is when I have a urinary tract infection. Is the feeling of peeing knives what I'm going for here? Because I'm not sure I like cranberry juice enough for a lifetime of that.

About That Joke
Says Gillespie:  No one knows what they're doing when it comes to dating, so let's all stop pretending*!
