This joke is one I used to tell back when I was doing standup in college. It was always a touch unsettling because I would burn through girlfriends faster than the blink of a hummingbird’s eye. This isn’t saying I set my ex-girlfriends aflame. I mean I had a hard time convincing a girlfriend to stick around long enough to really hate me.
Like it was in the early 90’s, so it is in the late 10’s (weird!). This refers not to anyone recent or even over-recent. It’s just a dumb, unsettling joke that makes me laugh. Somehow, it creeps out folks more than it amuses them. Baffling.
So you think this is creepy? You should hear the other crap that crashes through my head in a ceaseless deluge of inappropriate chatter. The trick is to let the nutso out a little bit at a time.
