Off the hook
A fine line.
Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:
One day, a man notices his next door neighbor is erecting a tightrope in the backyard. The neighbor goes out to practice every day. He uses balancing bars, carries weights and even pedals a unicycle across.
Then he starts practicing on the tightrope with a wheel barrow. Every day, he puts more and more weight in the wheel barrow and goes back and forth on the tight rope.
One day, a neighbor stops by to chat. “I’ve been watching you practicing on the tightrope for weeks now, and I have to say, you’re amazing. But, what’s it all for?” the neighbor asks.
“I’m glad you’ve noticed. As a matter of fact, tomorrow, I’m going to cross over Niagra Falls on my tightrope. Why don’t you come out and see?” the man replies.
The next day, the neighbor is there watching the man get ready for his big show.
“Do you believe I can make it?”
“Oh yes, I’ve seen you practice. You can do it – easy!”
“Great – get in the wheel barrow.”
