The Hippo Joke



Not me.

Larry Miller's Hippo joke as told in the extras of 'The Aristocrat's DVD. Miller claims this joke was one of Johnny Carson's favorites in addition to the Aristocrats. If you can't drink - - You gotta laugh. Have a great weekend.

I can't believe that I haven't seen The Aristocrats yet. It's going to the top of my netflix que.

I didn't think The Aristocrat joke was that funny. What's hysterical is hearing these comedians tell other jokes.

The extra's on this DVD are packed with the best story telling. Be warned some of this is raw. But Mario Cantone's imitation of Liza Minnelli alone is worth owning it.

It's funny. The punchline makes me think of some New Yorker cartoons.

I heard the Hippo joke from a friend, God! it's got to be almost 40 years ago, I think it is the funniest joke ever and it's all in the setup.
I'm not one to remember joKes but this one is always at the ready.

Cathleen- Perfect. It may have been.

David V- It's all in the telling. Some great old jokes on the DVD and some fairly new ones.

"I saw two Catholic priests having dinner together last night. I didn't know whether to send over a bottle of wine or a couple boy scouts."

DB- I think that was after the pleistogasic era. You know...when coquina was formed.
