Some tales from our elders are sweet. Some are sad. Others … well, others will put a smile on your face, no matter who you are. This particular anecdote starts off serious enough with a news report. By the time it ends, you might be rolling your eyes, but you’ll also be rolling on the floor, laughing. Nothing beats a truly classic joke and we think this might just be one for the archives. It’s been told many times, and we’re not sure who first came up with this wonderfully silly gag, but this particular variation comes from one humor-loving Redditor.
