Hour 16- Need a Little Laugh?


You did it! You made it one more hour! I knew you could. Now it’s time to lighten the mood and keep the words flowing off the page and into you’re amazingly absorbent minds. So to give a little giggle I thought a few literary jokes might just hit the spot and keep you going on to Hour 17. So here goes…don’t throw books at me…or bookmarks, book lights and especially not the shelves!

Joke One

“A chicken runs into a library, goes to the main desk and says, ‘Book, bok, bok, boook.’ The librarian hands the chicken a book and it tucks it under its wing and runs out. A while later, the chicken runs back in, throws the book on the desk and says, ‘Book, bok, bok, bok, boook.’ Again the librarian gives it a book, and the chicken runs out with it. A few minutes later the chicken is back, and returns the book saying, ‘Boook, book, bok, bok, boook.’ The librarian gives the chicken a third book, but this time follows it as it runs out. The chicken runs down the street, through a park and down to the river where a frog is sitting on the bank. The chicken holds up the book to the frog, saying, ‘Book, bok, bok, boook’. The frog replies, ‘Read-it, read-it, read-it…”

Joke Two

“A writer dies and Saint Peter offers him the choice of Hell or Heaven. To see what he has in store Saint Peter takes him to Hell where rows of writers are chained to their desks being whipped by demons in a steaming dungeon. However, when they get to Heaven the writer is astonished to see that nothing has changed – rows of writers are chained to their desks in a steaming dungeon being whipped. ‘Hey!’ says the writer, ‘this is just as bad as Hell!’ ‘No, it’s not,’ replies Saint Peter. ‘Up here you get published.”

Okay I have punished you enough…off you go! If you’d like you can share your own book/literature related jokes in the comments below. I am sure they are better than the ones above. Everyone needs a laugh to get through these last few hours! Happy Reading and see you next hour!  ~Courtney

  1. Well posted for the next challenge. Drat that goodreads went down when I needed it. 🙁 I did finish my book though! 🙂 Hope every one is enjoying their books.

  2. Haha, those jokes were amazing! Especially the second one because I’m a wanna-be novelist myself. Thanks for those. 😀

    Keep up the momentum, everyone, and a big thanks to all of the wonderful cheerleaders!

  3. Loved those jokes! <3 I'm making my rounds again for my cheering, so if any of you all that are still going need some extra cheering, let me know! I'll drop by and leave a comment on your blog, or Tweet you. =)

  4. This is my daughter’s joke. They’re studying rocks in her science class. Her friend, miracle turns to her and asks “What’s limestone?” My daughter’s response, “It’s sedimentary, my dear Watson.”
