Pretty Good Joke Book: A Prairie Home Companion
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
A treasury of hilarity from one of America’s favorite radio shows. A guy walks into a bar. Eight Canada Geese walk into a bar. A termite jumps up on the bar and asks, “Where is the bar tender?” Drum roll. The Fifth Edition of the perennially popular Pretty Good Joke Book is everything the first four were and more. More puns, one-liners, light bulb jokes, knock-knock jokes, and third-grader jokes (have you heard the one about Elvis Parsley?). More religion jokes, political jokes, lawyer jokes, blonde jokes, and jokes in questionable taste (Why did the urologist lose his license? He got in trouble with his peers). More jokes about chickens, relationships, and senior moments (The nice thing about Alzheimer’s is you can enjoy the same jokes again and again). It all started back in 1996, when A Prairie Home Companion fans laughed themselves silly during the first Joke Show. The broadcast was such a hit that it became an almost-annual gagfest. Then fans wanted to read the jokes, share them, and pass them around, and the first Pretty Good Joke Book was born. With 362 new jokes (more or less), the latest edition promises countless giggles, chortles, and guffaws anyone—fans of the radio show or not—will enjoy.

the German shepherd is a Seeing Eye dog, walks into the bar, and orders a drink. And no one says anything. So the second guy takes out some dark glasses, slips them on, and walks his Chihuahua into the bar. The bartender says, “Sorry—we don’t allow dogs in here.” And the man says, “It’s okay—it’s my Seeing Eye dog.” The bartender laughs and says, “This Chihuahua is your Seeing Eye dog?” And the guy says, “They gave me a Chihuahua?” A pork chop goes into a bar and orders a drink.

men couldn’t stand it any longer and asks the bartender, “How can you afford to serve martinis as good as these for a dime a piece?” “Here’s my story.

Every drink costs a dime—wine, liquor, beer, all the same.” “Wow!! That’s quite a story,” says one of the men. The four of them sipped at their martinis and couldn’t help but notice three other guys at
