Another really bad joke

Posted by Lissa on June 29, 2009

For the math geeks out there . . .

Once upon a time there were these two charming puff adders who lived in the woods.  Being faithful and romantic puff adders, they yearned for little baby puff adders to raise and love and cherish. 

Their first winter they mated under the back porch of a house.  But come spring?  No little baby puff adders.

The next year, they mated hopefully in the depths of a dry cave, secret and secure.  But come spring?  No little baby puff adders.

The year after that, they tried a den among the rocks by a riverbank.  But come spring?  No little baby puff adders.

Finally, as a last hope, they tried mating underneath a great fallen tree, a former giant of the forest. 

And come spring?

They found themselves blessed with a whole litter of little baby puff adders!  Joy!!


And the moral of the story is . . .


With the help of logs, even adders can multiply.

 Thanks Dad!

    But you never address the underlying medical condition of why they were puffy

    Just think of the snake in the jingle at BadgerBadgerBadger.com. Puff adders inflate with air, like frogs do their throat sacs (some of them). As opposed to non-puffing adders, who apparently don’t smoke at all. Which would be good, to not smoke around the little puff adders.

    If the logs were wood (not plastic), then they would be Natural Logs.

    I think I like your dad’s sense of humor …

    A decent pun, but your delivery was kind of wooden. 😉
