"The old ones are ...."

It's been a while since I last posted what Hubby lovingly refers to as one of my' so-called jokes' but today I have that urge. Now, this is a golden oldie, popular when the Star Wars films were first being shown, but then the old ones are sometimes the best - yet again!

Luke Skywalker and his dad Darth Vader are sitting round the tree on Christmas morning. Luke goes to open his first present when Darth stops him and says " Wait, Luke, I know what that present is, it's a teddy bear." Sure enough, Luke opens the present and it's a teddy bear.

He goes to open his next present, but Darth again stops him and tell him it's a train set. Luke is amazed and starts to open his last present. Before he can get the paper off, Darth says " That's a new jumper, Luke."

Luke is amazed by this and asks Darth how he knew what they all were. Darth turns to him and says " I felt the presents, Luke ...."

Well, I did try to warn you.

I've never heard that joke, but it is a good one! I read your review of The Drowning Girl. That is on my list of books to read this year. It really sounds like a good book! Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!

Glad you liked the joke, as I said the old ones are sometimes the best. I'm really enjoying your blog - the only bad thing being my to read list is getting longer & longer.

Ah, Petty, Hubby's hard on you. Tell him I said to back off. Solidarity!

I'm all for solidarity but I think this one might be better coming from you.
