[pct-l] tick joke
Amusingly, a pertinent joke appeared this morning on another (non-outdoor)
list I'm on.
A priest was walking along the school corridor near the preschool
wing when a group a little ones were trotting by on the way to the
cafeteria. One little lad of about three or four stopped and looked
at him in his clerical clothes and asked, "Why do you dress funny?"
He told him that he was a priest and that this is the uniform priests
wear. Then he pointed to the priest's little plastic collar insert
and asked, "Does it hurt? Do you have a Boo-boo?" The priest was
perplexed till he realized that to him the collar insert looked like
a bandaid. So the priest took it out to show him. On the back of the
collar are raised letters giving the name of the manufacturer. The
little guy felt the letters, and the priest asked, "Do you know what
those words say?" "Yes I do," said the lad who was not old enough to
read. Peering intently at the letters he said, "It says, 'Kills ticks
and fleas up to six months!' "
