Joke of the Week: The Results Are In


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 Richard Bowen. Take it away, Richard…

I just got a test-tube puppy. It's a Lab mix.

About That Joke
Says Bowen: I wrote this joke at some point on a two-month East Coast tour this summer. I was somewhere between New York City and Wilmington, N.C. There is a word chop shop in my brain that constantly searches for double entendres, anagrams, spoonerisms, portmanteaus and other linguistic tricks that I don't know the labels for yet. I do not own a dog.
