Robert R. from Riverside is probably
Moultrie’s finest punster. We thank Bob for sending this one to Mo!
Bob’s story goes: A giraffe, a donkey and a camel – plus their friend,
the pig – all went to an audition at a comedy club.
The camel was first up. He did an impersonation of a llama, told a

It was the giraffe’s turn. He cleared his throat – which took some
time. Then, the giraffe did a headstand and told some very tall tales.
The judges really thought the giraffe was funny and invited her back the
Next, it was the donkey’s turn on stage. The judges got a real kick
out of the donkey’s act and invited him back the next day.
Finally, it was the pig’s turn. He stood at the microphone (Bob R.
says the pig was Mo – but I deny it!) and gold a really long shaggy-dog
story about a dog. The joke was so long that it took two and a half hours
to tell it. The judges were so upset that they threw me (urr, the pig)
out of the club on his ear.
Why didn’t the judges like the pig?
He was a real boar.
