It’s a joke. No, seriously, it’s really a joke. I want to know who first told it. And I want to know how one knows this person is the first person who told it. And, for that matter, how do we know how any jokes originate?? But I won’t get into that issue right now…
So here’s the story: I was trying to fall asleep last night and I kept thinking about the talking muffin joke. You may not have heard it (do you reside under a rock, perhaps??). I will share it in a minute but first I want you to know that I did eventually fall asleep; promising myself that I would do a bit of research first thing this morning because I do really, really want to know who first told the talking muffin joke.
And I did, well I tried-to do the research. I got on-line and typed in a search (“originator of the talking muffin joke” and then just “talking muffin”, and then…I was in too deep…) but…well, I’m not sure I should share here what I happened upon. It was not the answer to my question. And I gave up. Just like that. What kind of researcher am I???
Well, not a bad one for sure, but in this case I thought I might just spend the whole day searching for the answer and-if I am being honest-there are much more productive ways to spend my day (please see: The Five Best Reasons to Play Bejeweled2 on Your iPhone).
So I am taking what I hope is the easy way out and I am posing the question to you. Please, if you know, can you tell me who first shared the talking muffin joke? Because, if I have not mentioned, this just might be my all time favorite joke-its clean, short, and hysterically funny-not that I’m not a fan of dirty or long or…oh, never mind. Anyway…
I first heard this talking muffin joke while watching the show TWOandahalfMEN and little (at the time…he’s so grown up now) Jake told it. Please do not disparage me, I like the show and I’m going to keep watching it no matter what Charlie Sheen does in his personal life; the actor and the person are two separate… oops, I’m sliding off topic here.
Okay so here’s the joke (paraphrased by me):
Two muffins are sitting in an oven
One muffin looks up and says: “Whoa, its hot in here.”
And the other muffin looks over and says: “Holy crap, a talking muffin.”
See, see what I mean? Didn’t I tell you it was funny? Okay, now here is what I need you to do: Go find me the originator of that joke. I need to know. And take your time, do your research; because I will double check. And please don’t ask yourself why I’m bothering you with this. I believe I answered that above.
Thank you, sincerely. I will wait patiently for your reply. (See comment section below).
