The flea and the fly
« on: March 01, 2011, 08:21:18 am »
I didn't write this, but it's one of my favorites



A flea and a fly got caught in a flue.
Said the flea, "Let us fly!"
Said the fly, "Let us flee!"
So they flew through a flap in the flue.

Yeah

A man is in a room with no way out.
He only has himself a table and a mirror in the room
He escapes by looking in the mirror and seeing what he saw
and using the saw he cut the table in half
He then put the pieces together against the wall to make a "hole", since two halves make a whole

Sorry, just a couple of typos, as well as making sure people understood the punch lines.  If you didn't like this, I promise that I will not edit your posts again.

Oh I was just wondering what i done. I find it OK I see no major changes.
Even though shouldn't the line with the saw be
Using the saw he cuts the table in half?

Your choice.  I didn't edit anything on that line.
