This is the funniest joke I know. I heard it in my thesis year of architecture school from Chuck Rogers, who has the second greatest sense of humor I've ever known. He found humor in just about everything.
If you know a funnier joke (preferably one that does not refer to poop or genitalia; but beggars can't be choosers, can they?), please share it with me. I could use it.
OKAY, HERE'S THE JOKE:
This guy is trying to explain to his friend what a Freudian slip is, and he says, "It's when you say something you don't want to say but you probably really mean, and it usually comes out sexual."
But his friend still doesn't get it and says, "I still don't get it. Give me an example."
So the guy says, "Okay, I'll give you an example. I was at the train station recently, and when I got to the ticket window I meant to say, 'I'd like two tickets to Pittsburg,' but the woman behind the counter had these enormous breasts, and before I knew it I'd said, 'I'd like two pickets to Titsburg.'
Boy, was I embarrassed. You see what I mean?"
So the guy's friend says, "Oh, now I get it! The same exact thing happened to me the other day! Tell me if this is one: I sat down to dinner with my wife and kids the other night, and what I meant to say was, 'Honey, would you please pass the potatoes,' but what actually came out was, 'You fucking bitch, you ruined my life.'"
I love that joke.
care to comment?
