5275 - Long joke Sunday

Jack decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. They loaded up in Jack's minivan and headed north. 

After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard.

They pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could spend the night.

"I realize it's terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but I'm recently widowed," she explained. "I'm afraid neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house."

"Don't worry," Jack said. "We'll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the weather breaks, we'll be gone at first light."

The lady agreed, and the two men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night. 

Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on their way. They enjoyed a great weekend of skiing.

About two years later, Jack got an unexpected letter from an attorney.

It took him a few minutes to figure it out, but he finally determined that it was from the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on the ski weekend.

He dropped in on his friend Bob and asked, "Bob, do you remember that good-looking widow from....." "Yes, I do."

"Did you happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and pay her a visit?"

"Yes," Bob said, a little embarrassed about being found out. "I have to admit that I did."

"And did you happen to use my name instead of telling her your name?"

Bob's face turned red and he said, "Yeah, sorry, buddy. I'm afraid I did. Why do you ask?"

"She just died and left me everything.

Honesty is the best policy Bob.

Mike said...

Stu - Thanks.

Sue - Bob found that out the hard way.

I never get stranded at the right places.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Hahahahaha, did NOT see that punchline coming!

BootsandBraids said...

Nice twist. Joke's on Bob.

John A Hill said...

Part of using an alias is knowing when to use an alias.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Yup. Honesty is the best policy even when you're being a lothario.

Mike said...

Bill - You know it would be our luck to run into an old farmer with a shotgun.

Deb - That's one surprise today! Go for another one. Buy a lottery ticket!

Shirley - I wonder how many other guys got gifts at Bob's expense?

John - Or is it really... John?

Shaw - You made me look up a word! Or I should say a name. Miguel de Cervantes would be proud of you.

Kathy G said...

Serves Bob right for lying!

Ami said...

I am rolling my eyes here.
And Bob, my father in law, is sitting in the living room. He always introduces himself as, "Bob. With one "O".

Mike said...

Kathy - But you know he's going to try and convince Jack that he should get the inheritance.

Ami - I've got a good meme on the origin of the word boob. ... Funny, we were leaving each other comments at the same time.

Ha! Did not see that coming. Great joke! Know I just have to learn it...

Mike said...

Cloudia - Jack thought so. :)

Allen - You're better at that than me then. I'd get lost about halfway through it.
