..."The God's Must Be Crazy"...I loved that
movie too. Worthy of a college curriculum on
why it was funny and why it was NOT funny.
Similarly, the joke posted by DQ was funny
and also, as you noted, not funny. That it
was posted in the Jokes forum made it
appropriate, although perhaps, one door
over in the Relationship forum it may not
have gone over very well.
The truth is that no matter who you put in
the trunk, the reality is that the dog
would have been happier to see you, even
if you were politically correct and put NO
ONE in the trunk with the dog, the dog would
have still been happy to see you. That is
the great thing about dogs, they are very
It is interesting to me, since I have heard
a gazillion jokes over the years, to see
what makes people laugh. I have decided that
jokes are one of the currencies of "intimacy".
In this joke, for me, it was not about the
woman in the trunk part, since if a woman
were telling it, she would have put the
husband in the trunk...it was about the loyalty
of a dog. On a bad day, my oldest brother will
fume and say all he needs is his truck and his
dog. This does not mean that he does not love
his wife. He adores her, and she, him. The
truth is that she IS treated better than the
dog. The dog however is always ON and never
lets him down. He expects nothing from the dog,
well, not to pee in the house, and the dog always
wants to go with him whereas his wife often has
other things to do. Anyway, dog jokes are
popular with men and probably that I laughed
at this one means I like men and dogs and also
know its the truth that 15 minutes in a trunk
is 14 minutes and 52 seconds too long for a woman.
Yeah, and it is also funny that any man could
get a woman in a trunk...ggg.
