Worst joke ever!

katelyn 6I_Heart_Faces_noborder_125x100  A couple lived near the ocean and used to walk the beach a lot.

One summer they noticed a girl who was at the beach pretty much every day. She wasn’t unusual, nor was the travel bag she carried, except for one thing; she would approach people who were sitting on the beach, glance around furtively, then speak to them.

Generally the people would respond negatively and she would wander off, but occasionally someone would nod and there would be a quick exchange of money and something she carried in her bag.

The couple assumed she was selling drugs, and debated calling the cops, but since they didn’t know for sure they just continued to watch her.

After a couple of weeks the wife said, “Honey, have you ever noticed that she only goes up to people with boom boxes and other electronic devices?”

He hadn’t and said so.

Then she said, “Tomorrow I want you to get a towel and our big radio and go lie out on the beach. Then we can find out what she’s really doing.”

Well, the plan went off without a hitch and the wife was almost hopping up and down with anticipation when she saw the girl talk to her husband and then leave.

The man walked up the beach and met his wife at the road.

“Well? Is she selling drugs?” she asked excitedly.

“No, she’s not,” he said, enjoying this probably more than he should have.

“Well? What is it, then? What does she do?” his wife fairly shrieked.

The man grinned and said, “She’s a battery salesperson.

“Batteries?” cried the wife.

“Yes,” he replied.

“She sells C cells by the sea shore.”

Happy Monday!

Did you go to the shore this year?

What is your favorite sea shore?

We are fairly committed to

Dirty Jersey…

Perhaps because of the distance.

Or perhaps we just like grime!

Either way, that is where

you will find us vacationing most summers.

LOL!!! I love it! No sea trips for this old gal...a couple of trips to the beach(a lake) this summer but it seems when it is my day off it rains or I have too much to do. Thank you for the Sunday night smiles! Sweet dream sweet lady. XX

Puna said...

Ok, it was the worst joke ever. But it was really cute. I'll have to use it today...

Buckeroomama said...

*groan!* But only you could pull off posting a joke like that! :)

My favorite beach is hours away by plane, but I'd settle for St. Stephen's beach (where we dig for clams) for now...

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

Ha! Love it. And, I love that sweet capture, too!

Tracey said...

Oh holy cow! I have to remember that! That was the worse joke ever and I still laughed my butt off! We went to Tampa to visit a friend and I took my kiddo to St Pete beach and she got to see the ocean and seagulls for the first time! Check out my entry!

Ashley Sisk said...

I swear...you crack me up. Great joke.

Anita said...

Cape May, NJ and Myrtle Beach, SC for us.

I haven't been able to visit my bloggy friends much this summer. Hope to check in more during the fall.

And I hope you've had a good summer. :)

Tracy P. said...

Love your photo and your joke. So cute!

We are as land locked as you can get, but lucky us, we live in the land of 10,000 lakes. We try to visit any that we can whenever we can. I drive by two small lakes almost everytime I leave the house, and they never fail to capture my attention. Love the water!

Nallely said...

hehe,well I did laugh. Nice entry! We didn't make it to the beach this year. We usually go to Destin during the summer, the Gulf of Mexico is such a beautiful place, we were so sad that such a big tragedy happened there.

Jack said...

I am a West Coast boy so the Pacific receives me more than once in a while. The beach is soothing.

Bec said...

Iowa is pretty darn as land locked as you can get. And the Mississippi is pretty darn nasty so I won't set foot in it. Luckily, my family goes up to a cabin in Wisconsin every summer....it kind of has beaches :)

Raymonde said...

It is Monday morning and I am smiling, thank you.

I have recently been to my favorite seaside in the whole wide world. I posted at

Have a super week, taking lots of pictures.

Busy Bee Suz said...

That is a terribly funny joke. :0
I still have not been to the beach...and the kids started school today.
And the beach is only 7miles. I should be ashamed...I should really be ashamed.

Sarah Bee said...

Too cute and funny! Loved it!

Right now I only visit the beach when friends come to town but we got to Clearwater Beach - I miss the beaches in Michigan for some odd reason, maybe b/c they are not tropical they are more naturey [is that a word!?!?] and I love that.

Have a happy weekend!
