POLISH JOKE

Historical record from James Callow Folklore Archive.

ONE DAY THIS POLOCK WAS WALKING DOWN THE STREET WHEN A MAN IN A
TRUCK STOPPED HIM AND SAID: "THIS TRUCK IS FULL OF PENGUINS THAT
I'M SUPPOSED TO TAKE TO THE ZOO, BUT I'VE GOT A DATE THIS
AFTERNOON. I'LL GIVE YOU A HUNDRED BUCKS IF YOU'LL TAKE THEM FOR ME.
WHEN YOU'RE DONE, BRING THE TRUCK BACK TO THE LOT AND YOU'RE
DONE."
THE POLOCK AGREED AND GOT INTO THE TRUCK AND DROVE OFF. MM
THE MAN WENT OFF TO TAKE HIS GIRLFRIEND TO LUNCH AND A MOVIE. WHEN
HE ARRIVED AT THE THEATER A COUPLE OF HOURS LATER HE FOUND THE POLOCK
STANDING IN THE TICKET LINE WITH THE PENGUINS LINED UP BEHIND HIM.
"WHAT IN GOD'S NAME ARE YOU DOING?" HE ASKED.
"WELL," SAID THE POLOCK, "I TOOK THEM TO THE ZOO LIKE YOU SAID, AND
THEY HAD SUCH A GOOD TIME THAT I THOUGHT SINCE I STILL HAD
MONEY LEFT, I'D TAKE THEM TO THE MOVIES."
