Elvis — In Lieu of Lunch

Category: Puns, Rated G

This was posted by Conrad Macina to the daily-humor group on yahoogroups.

My mother gave my sister and me ten dollars to buy lunch for ourselves at the diner down the street. On our way there we passed a man selling puppies. I asked, “How much for a puppy?”

“Ten dollars,” he answered.

Unable to resist, I coaxed my sister into giving up her lunch money and bought a puppy. I named it Elvis, and we went home.

My sister, of course, went immediately to Mom.

Mom said, “Back so soon?”

“I’m afraid we never made it to the diner.”

“Why not?”

“Because we spent ten dollars on Elvis.”


“That’s right. We ate nothin’, bought a hound dog.”
