Daily Prompt: HA HA HA

Tell us a joke! Knock-knock joke, long story with a unexpected punchline, great zinger — all jokes are welcome!

I haven’t done any of these in a while because I haven’t been in a blogging mood until lately. I do check the prompts every day and up until now none have really caught my attention. Anyway, here’s a joke that I heard years ago and it’s always a fun one to tell, especially if you get good at it and can tell it rather fast. The idea is to get as detailed as you want. It’s sure to be a smash hit at your next party. If you’re going to tell it, make sure you say that you are going to tell about the Pink House, as if you’re telling a story. I don’t know why that’s important, but it helps to build the audience. I guess. Whatever, do what you want.

The Pink House

A guy is driving home from work one evening when he gets detoured off of the highway and into the country where he’s not familiar with the area. As he drives down a long dusty country road his car breaks down. He gets out and looks up the hill next to the road and sees a pink house.

It has a pink roof, pink siding, pink windows, pink shutters, pink gutters, and a pink porch with a pink awning over it. On the pink porch is a pink swing and a pink railing surrounding it. There’s a pink door with a pink doorknob and a pink welcome mat on the pink porch. There are pink steps leading up to the pink porch with a pink banister on either side.

The man walks up to the pink porch with the pink railing and pink swing and steps on the pink door mat. He knocks on the pink door with the pink doorknob. Suddenly the pink door opens and standing in front of him is a pink woman. She’s got pink hair and pink eye liner around pink eyes, and pink lipstick on. She’s wearing a pink dress on with pink flowers on it and pink stockings and she’s wearing pink house shoes. She smiles at him with her pink lipstick on and asks him if she can help him.

“Hi, my car broke down in front of your exceptionally pink house and I was wondering if I can use your phone to call for a tow truck.”

“Sure, come on in!”

The pink woman leads him through the pink door into her pink house. He notices the entire inside of the house is pink. The floors are pink, the walls are pink, the ceiling is pink. She leads him into a pink room that has a pink couch and a pink TV and a pink chair. There’s a pink ottoman in front of the pink couch. On a pink table next to the pink couch is a pink phone with a pink phone cord and pink numbers on the pink handset. The man calls a tow truck and they tell him they’ll be able to come by in the morning to get his car.

The man relays the news to the pink woman and the pink woman smiles.

“That’s just fine. You can stay here for the night.”

The pink woman leads him up a pink staircase with a pink banister to the second floor that is also completely pink and into a pink bedroom. The bedroom has pink carpet on the floor, a pink dresser, pink bed with pink pillows and pink sheets and a pink comforter. Next to the pink bed is a pink nightstand with a pink lamp on it. There is a pink closet with a pink door and he notices there’s a pink window with pink curtains hanging in front of it.

He says the room is just fine and he settles in for the night.

Shortly after that a woman who was also detoured from the highway happens to be passing by when as luck would have it, her car breaks down. She gets out of her car and looks up the hill next to the road and sees the pink house.

It has a pink roof, pink siding, pink windows, pink shutters, pink gutters, and a pink porch with a pink awning over it. On the pink porch is a pink swing and a pink railing surrounding it.

A few minutes go by and yet another traveler is coming up the country road when his car breaks down in front of the pink house. The man gets out of his car, looks up the hill, sees the pink house and heads up to it.

It has a pink roof, pink siding, pink windows, pink shutters, pink gutters, and a pink porch with a pink awning over it. On the pink porch is a pink swing and a pink railing surrounding it.

He says the room is just fine and he settles in for the night.

The next morning all three guests awaken and head down the pink staircase with the pink banister for breakfast. They go into the pink kitchen that has a pink floor and a pink refrigerator. It has a pink oven, pink stove, pink counter tops, pink sink, pink dishes, pink cabinets and a pink table with pink chairs tucked neatly in all around it.

The three guests have a seat at the pink table and their pink host comes into the pink kitchen with her pink hair, pink eyes with the pink eye shadow around them, and pink lipstick. She’s wearing pink pajamas with little pink kittens on them and she has on her pink house shoes.

“Good morning everyone! I hope you slept well!” says the pink woman.

The guests all say they had.

The pink woman opens up a pink cabinet and pulls out three pink bowls. She opens a pink drawer and from it pulls three pink spoons and she places those pink spoons in the three pink bowls.

The pink woman opens a cabinet and looks inside. “For breakfast you can have either Cheerios or Wheaties.”

The first man says he wants Cheerios. The woman says she wants Wheaties. The second man says he wants Cheerios.

The moral of the story is, two out of three prefer Cheerios to Wheaties.

  1. Okay. lol

    So theres this journalist that hears about this farmer that has a green gorilla. Seeing as how this is crazy and the guy lives far away, the journalist calls the farmer and asks if he could come by, get the story and take some pictures? The farmer says yes, and gives him his address and directions out to his farmhouse. After many hours of driving around to find where this farmer lives he finally pulls up in front of the place just as his car breaks down. So he talks to the farmer, who tells him to call his people and he does, only to find that no one can come all the way out there until the next day. The farmer says that thats fine and invites him to sit down with him for dinner where he begins the story about how he came about getting a green gorilla.
    After dinner the farmer leads the man down into the basement to go see this green gorilla. After a while of walking down a hallway, they come to a door that looks like it belongs to some kind of beat up shack. After passing through and another ten feet or so, they come to a more solid wooden door which the farmer unlocks and they pass through. After another 20 feet or so, they come to a heavy steel fire door. The journalist looks up from taking notes on the story and asks, “Whats with all the doors?” The farmer just smiles and says its for their protection and they move on.
    Finally after walking what seemed like forever they come to a big bank vault type door, and the farmer spins all the combination locks, and the door swings open.
    In the smallish, maybe 20 by 20ish foot room the journalist sees a massive green gorilla, just chillin, sitting on a bench in a corner. So the journalist sees this and exclaims, “Thats amazing!” and starts snapping pictures for his story. After a while of taking pictures and hearing the farmer finish his story about how he had gotten the gorilla, the journalist notices that its not really moving, so he reaches out to touch the green gorilla. The farmer smacks his hand down and says sternly “You must never touch the gorilla, for he is very dangerous! Haven’t you been listening to my story??” So the journalist has his doubts about weather or not what hes seeing is a hoax, but he says nothing and they move on, closing and locking doors behind them “For security reasons” the farmer assures him.
    So this journalist has this plan, to wait and see things for himself after everyone is asleep, which he does.
    Waiting till well after the farmer is asleep, he takes the farmers keys and goes down into the basement. First passing through the shack door, then the wooden door and then the heavy steel door and then finally passing on to the bank vault door. He checks his notes, because he watched the farmer as he unlocked that door, and finally after getting the combinations, the door swings open silently on its hinges.
    And there sits the green gorilla, still in the same spot, as if it had never moved. Reaching out to touch the gorilla, his fingers barely brushing up against the hairs of the giant beast when suddenly

    RRRRAAAAWWWWWWRRRRRR!!!

    The gorilla gets up and races toward the journalist, who promptly freaks the fuck out, drops all his stuff and starts running, slamming doors behind him.
    The gorilla gives chase, smashing through all the doors as if they were leaves in the wind. The journalist makes it back up the stairs screaming, panicking not knowing what to do, but only that he has to get away. Fast. He runs through the house and is barely out the door by the time the gorilla is smashing through walls, just to try and cut him off. Off he runs through the dark of the forest, not stopping, or daring to try and hide. The gorilla crashes through the front wall of the house and after him, out into to forest, uprooting trees that get in his way. The journalist hears this, and dares to look behind him to see..just long enough to trip and fall off a cliff.
    The gorilla still gives chase. It climbs down the cliff to the journalist, who is just barely alive at this point, panicked and paralyzed with fear.

    Finally, the gorilla hunches over the mans still body and whispers as he touches him on the cheek…”Tag, you’re it.”

    • That is fucking epic.

      • orbthefirst

        Lol, yes. Its fun to tell drunk people. They get all pissy & shit. lol

      • Oh yeah, that’s why these jokes are great. You spend a half hour telling them only for the end to be what it is and then everyone wants to kill you. I actually know 3 others that are similar to the pink house and eventually I’ll write them all out and share them. They’re great, I’m a sucker for these types of jokes. The longer and more bizarre, the better.
