A Classic Axe Joke
Joe, the chronic borrower approaches his neighbor Ray. “Ray, may I borrow your axe?” he asks.
“Not today,” Ray replied, “I have to make soup later.”
“What kind of excuse it that?” demanded Joe, ”Axes and soup don’t have anything to do with one another!”
“Well,” confessed Ray, “I admit it’s a lousy excuse. But, if I already know I’m not going to lend you my axe, I can give you any excuse I want.”
It’s our experience that tools that are lent out rarely return in the same condition they left. We suggest keeping a stockpile of lousy excuses on hand in the event you’re required to play out the scene described above.
