Joke Fails!

Sometimes the funniest way to tell a joke is by failing completely in the delivery.

Years ago, my mother made an attempt to retell a joke that went infamously awry (see if you can figure out how it should have gone). She said, "What did the Mexican fireman name his two sons? José and Hose Two!"

Last night, Jason tried to tell the Interrupting Cow Joke (Knock, knock. /Who's there? /Interrupting Cow/ Interrupting C.../Moo!). Here's how it went:

Jason: Knock, knock.
Me: Who's there?
Jason: Moo!
Me: (Laughing, and then noticing the puzzled look on Jason's face.) Wait, are you serious?
Jason: (Embarrassed.) Oh no, I screwed it up. Let me do it again.
Me: Okay.
Jason: Knock, knock.
Me: Who's th-
Jason: MOOOOOOO!!!

1. Yes, correct.

2. Jason loved Aidan's joke so much that he has since retold it to me twice.
