Joke I Just Heard From My Grandson

Burglar breaks into a house.  While gathering valuables, he hears, "Jesus is coming." A few minutes later, he hears the same voice.  The third time, he tracks down the voice.  It is a parrot.

"Why do you keep saying, 'Jesus is coming'?" 

"Because it's true.  My name is Oven."

"What sort of person names a parrot 'Oven'?"

"The sort of person who names their Rottweiler 'Jesus'."


  1. Speaking of Rottweilers:

    Me: I don't want to take away dog owners' rights. But we need to do something about Rottweilers.

    You: So what do you propose?

    Me: I just think that there should be some sort of training or restrictions on owning an attack dog.

    You: Wait. What's an "attack dog?"

    Me: You know what I mean. Like military dogs.

    You: Huh? Rottweilers aren't military dogs. In fact "military dogs" isn't a thing. You mean like German Shepherds?

    Me: Don't be ridiculous. Nobody's trying to take away your German Shepherds. But civilians shouldn't own fighting dogs.

    You: I have no idea what dogs you're talking about now.

    Me: You're being both picky and obtuse. You know I mean hounds.

    You: Say what?

    Me: OK, maybe not actually ::air quotes:: hounds ::air quotes::. Maybe I have the terminology wrong. I'm not obsessed with vicious dogs like you. But we can identify kinds of dogs that civilians just don't need to own.

    You: Can we?
