A joke from 2004

16 April 2012

While going through journal entries, I found an attempt at a joke and an explanation of that joke.

-Random “joke”: What’s black and white and blue (blew) all over? Yesterday’s Chicago Tribune

The paper blew (past tense) all over because Chicago is The Windy City and some careless environmental desecrator left her copy of The Tribune on a park bench (I’m assuming Chicago has parks [or at least park benches] because I’ve never been there).

I have since been to Chicago and noticed a park and park benches. I have not, however, improved my joke writing one iota.

Emphasis in original (journal entries)

It’s time again for another entry from my past journals.

This gem comes to us eight years ago, in April of 2004. I lived in Athens, sold “ladies'” shoes and frequented a tea bar called Infusia (now, sadly, called The Buddha Bar).

I was also just getting out there and playing acoustic guitar and singing covers and my own songs. Apparently, I tried to combine my public music persona with my love for Infusia. Observe. [Note: The song titles you don’t recognize are probably my originals. It really just depends on how many song titles you recognize.]

I talked to Katie about possibly playing at Infusia. That would be so cool, but I realize I would need some mellow stuff.

 

List of possible songs:

Jumper

One more tomorrow

Just friends (It’s so hard to be)

How do you Do-Ken?

Best of my love

Lost cause – Beck

Pink Triangle

The Renee song (Because of you)

All apologies

Vertical Horizon

Radiohead

Roll and fall (For her) – Miranda’s song
