Now, I told you a little bit about Bill's sense of humor, but I didn't tell you how funny he is. He has no Internet, but he's had years of experience as a salesman to collect great jokes and funny lines. Here's a photo from dinner, during which he kept us in stitches, delivering one-liners, one after the other. Here's a photo of Mr.4444 and Kyle, listening to Bill tell yet another joke.Bill shared a true story about how he recently met a young man at an airport, and they were making small-talk. The man asked Bill where he lived. When Bill told him, he excitedly exclaimed, "I'm meeting my parents in Vegas!"
"How old are you? Bill asked.
"Twenty-six," the young man replied.
"And you've never met your parents before??" (Ba-dap-bump!)After dinner, when I suggested, "Let's go outside to take a photo, before it gets too dark." Bill asked, "Why? Don't you already know what it looks like out there?" Kendall has found a special place in Bill's heart, so we took this one, too.As they were leaving, Bill's friend (who also came to dinner) mentioned to us that a bird had dive-bombed Bill when they approached the house. She asked what type of bird that was that had its nest near our front door. Bill quipped, "That was a bird? I just thought the mosquitoes around here were big!" The man doesn't miss a beat!
I'll wrap this up with Bill's final joke of the night. It seems that a little boy came upon a pirate at the seashore. The pirate had a real peg-leg, a hook for a hand, and a black patch over one eye. Curious, the boy asked how the pirate had lost his leg. [Read pirate lines in a pirate accent for full effect!]
"Arrgggh. I was washed overboard one night, and a shark bit it right off! The ship's carpenter was able to make me a new leg."
"What happened to your hand?" the boy pressed.
"I was shimmying up the mainsail when a gust of wind rushed in and I got me hand wrapped up in the ropes. When I fell, my hand ripped clean off! The ship's carpenter was able to make me a hook for a hand."
"And your eye?" the boy pried.
"I was up on deck when a seagull pooped in me eye!"
"That's dumb," said the boy, skeptically. "There's no way you could lose your eye from a bird pooping in it."
The pirate shrugged, "It was my first day with my new hook."
