Peanuts For Sale!

Dear Optimists,

The other day I was walking down the street and this guy was carrying these giant bundles, one in each hand. From afar I recognized the sheer size of the bags and that they were a yellow meshy material, but as he got closer I saw that each bag contained nine smaller plastic bags of peanuts.

“What, do you have an elephant as a pet or something?” I joked.

He gave me a dirty look. Some people have NO Sense of humor.

  1. Maybe you misinterpreted his look, and it was more a look that said “Don’t I know it? Can they ever get enough darn peanuts?” A look crying for sympathy rather than a dirty look.

    Love the raised eyebrow!

  2. Haha! Who would be offended by that question? Who WOULDN’T laugh at that?? Pfft…some people.

    You can rest assured that at least DO readers have a sense of humour, Den. 😉

  3. This one is hilarious because of that guy with no sense of humor *what an irony! 😀

  4. He probably heard that joke a millionty times, or he didn’t speak English!
    Or he was taking those peanuts to his wife, which you just called an elephant.

    Most likely the latter…oh that would suck: the part were you have a wife that demands loads of peanuts I mean.

    Scratch that, it would still be hilarious…he definitely didn’t speak English.

  5. Aww LOL this is so hilarious! (both your joke – at least your attempt – and the fact that some people just don’t get jokes… :P)

  6. Some people really take the fun out of stuff.
    I would have responded with a yes for fun 😛

  7. He may have no sense of humour, but he does have an awesome moustache.
