DRUNK JOKE

Historical record from James Callow Folklore Archive.

A DRUNK IS WALKING DOWN THE STREET. HE IS HOLDING A CAR STEERING
WHEEL IN HIS HANDS AND HIS COCK IS HANGING OUT. A POLICEMAN ON THE
STREET SEES HIM AND SAYS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH THAT STEERING
WHEEL. THE DRUNK LOOKS AT IT AND SAYS, OH MY GOD, I LOST MY CAR.
THE COP THEN SAYS, WELL WHY IS YOUR COCK HANGING OUT? THE DRUNK
LOOKS DOWN AND SAYS, OH MY GOD I LOST MY WIFE, TOO.

Submitter comment:

I GOT THIS IN HIGH'SCHOOL (ST. JOSEPH S IN WESTCHESTER) FROM ANOTHER
STUDENT. TELLER USUALLY USES ARM MOTION TO INDICATE HOLDING
STEERING WHEEL IN DRIVING POSITION.

THIS GUY WAS OUT ON A HUNTING TRIP, WHEN SUDDENLY HE
FELT THAT NATURE MUST TAKE ITS COURSE. HE DUCKED BEHIND
A TREE AND PROCEEDED TO RELIEVE HIS KIDNEYS. THERE WAS
ANOTHER HUNTER ABOUT FIFTY YARDS AWAY WHO SAW THE BUSHES
MOVE AND, THINKING IT WAS A DEER, LET HIM HAVE IT WITH
BOTH BARRELS OF A 12 GAUGE SHOTFGUN. HE GOT HIM RIGHT IN
THE PECKER. THE GUY LET OUT A SCREAM AND, NOT KNOWING
WHAT TO DO, WRAPPED IT UP IN A HANDERCHIEF AND RAN TO
THE NEAREST DOCTOR. HE CAME IN AND SAYS, "DOC, I'VE GOT
A PROBLEM." THE DOC SAYS, "WE'VE ALL GOT PROBLEMS SON."
THEN HE SAYS, "NO, NO, YOU'VE GOT TO SEE THIS." THEN HE
PULLED DOWN HIS PANTS. THE DOCTOR SAYS, "GRACIOUS,"
AND SCRATCHED HIS HEAD. THE FELLOW SAYS, "WHAT CAN YOU
DO FOR ME, DOC?" SO THE DOCTOR PULLED OUT A CARD AND
WROTE DOWN A NAME AND ADDRESS. THE GUY SAYS, "WHO'S
THIS, A SPECIALIST?" THE DOCTOR SAYS, "NO, HE'S MY
BROTHER, A CLARINET PLAYER. HE CAN TEACH YOU HOW TO
FINGER IT SO THAT YOU DON'T PISS ALL OVER YOURSELF."

A YOUNG MAN, WITH A CONSIDERABLE NUMBER OF FRIENDS WHO
LOVED JOKING AROUND, WAS TO GET MARRIED. HIS FRIENDS
THREW HIM A STAG PARTY THE NIGHT BEFORE THE BIG EVENT.
AT THIS PARTY, THEY SUCCEEDED IN GETTING THE GUY
COMPLETELY DRUNK, SO THAT HE PASSED OUT. NOW, ONE
OF THE GUYS AT THE PARTY WAS A MEDICAL STUDENT AND HE
CAME UP WITH THE IDEA FOR THE BEST JOKE OF ALL TIME.
HE WENT TO HIS CAR AND GOT HIS EQUIPMENT FOR MAKING
PLASTER CASTS. THEN HE AND THE REST OF THE PARTY WENT
TO WORK. WHEN THEY FINISHED, THE POOR FELLOW WAS IN
A COMPLETE CAST FROM THE SHOULDERS DOWN. THE ONLY PART
LEFT WITHOUT THE PLASTER CAST, WAS HIS COCK, WHICH WAS
LEFT DANGLING OUT. HIS FRIENDS THEN CARRIED THE STATUE
OVER TO HIS GIRLS HOUSE AND PROPPED HIM UP ON THE PORCH,
FACING THE DOOR. THEY THEN RANG THE DOORBELL AND TOOK
OFF. WHEN THE GIRL CAME TO THE DOOR, ALL HELL BROKE
LOOSE. NOBODY KNOWS WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED AFTER THAT,
BUT IT TOOK THREE MONTHS BEFORE THE WEDDING ACTUALLY
TOOK PLACE.

THE OLD MIDWIFE

DOWN IN KENTUCKY A LONG TIME AGO, THEY USED TO HAVE
MIDWIVES AND MID-MEN TO HELP DELIVER BABIES. WELL, THIS
ONE WOMAN WAS HAVIN' TROUBLE, SO SHE NEEDED SOME HELP.
WHAT THESE MID-MEN AND WOMEN WOULD DO WAS, THE MAN
WOULD SIT ON A CHAIR, THE PREGNANT WOMAN WOULD LAY ON
HIS LAP, AND THE MIDWIFE WOULD HELP THE BABY COME OUT.
LIKE I SAID, THIS ONE PREGNANT WOMAN WAS HAVIN'
TROUBLE. THE BABY JUST WOULDN'T COME; SO SHE LAID ON
THE MAN'S LAP. THE MIDWIFE STARTED TO FEEL AROUND BETWEEN
THE WOMAN'S LEGS. PRETTY SOON, THE MAN STARTED YELLIN'
"WOMAN, YOU BETTER LET GO." THE OLD MIDWIFE SAID, "I
THINK IT'S COMIN', I CAN FEEL SOMETHING." THE OLD MAN
SAID AGAIN, "WOOOMAAN, YOU'D BETTER LEGGO." BUT SHE KEPT
RIGHT ON FEELING AROUND. ALL THIS TIME THE WOMAN HAVING
THE BABY WAS YELLIN' "OOOOOWWWW!" "FOR GOD'S SAKE,
WOMAN, LEGGO!" SAID THE MAN. THE MIDWIFE ALL OF A
SUDDEN SAYS, "I'VE GOT (IT) NOW, AND I THINK IT'S A BOY,
'CAUSE I CAN FEEL ITS HEAD!" THE OLD MAN SAID, "YOU'D
BETTER LEGGO RIGHT NOW, 'CAUSE THAT AIN'T NO HEAD OF NO
BABY YOU GOT. YOU'D BETTER LEGGO, CAUSE YOU GOT A
HOLD OF MY COCK!!"

Submitter comment: THE INFORMANT HEARD THIS STORY IN A "BEER GARDEN" IN
