Ken and Jokes

Ken always struggled with jokes.  Although he got the gist of the humor, he got lost in the sequence or the details.  Once I arrived on the scene,  he practiced on me until he could get the sequence and details.  But many who knew him well just laughed at his joy in the telling – right or not.

My favorite story, which resurfaced recently was from a friend.  Her husband Ron told Ken one of those dreadful jokes “What do you call a cow with no legs?”  Answer “Ground beef.”

About a week later Ken phoned Ron and the conversation went as follows:

“Ron, that joke you told me isn’t making people laugh.”

“What’s that, Ken”

And Ken replied, “The one about what you call the cow with no legs – HAMBURGER!”
