A chicken walks into a library, goes up to the librarian and says, “Book book book.”
The librarian gives the chicken a book and the chicken walks away.
Later on, the chicken returns with the book repeating, “Book book book.”
Confused, the librarian takes the old book back and gives the chicken another book. The chicken rushes out the door.
Once again, the chicken returns, repeating, “Book book book!”
The librarian gives the chicken another book but wondering what’s going on, decides to follow the chicken.
He follows the chicken to a pond.
In the pond, there’s a frog.
The chicken gives the book to the the frog,
who replies, “Reddit, reddit!”
I heard this silly joke on the radio and it made me laugh. Wishing all of you a Happy Easter, Happy Spring, and I hope that you don’t feel like you’ve “reddit, reddit” all!
Dreadful [clicks on Like].
haha, thanks Jeff, terribly silly, isn’t it?
I’ve always pictured it happening in the local library in my old home town. This is because I first heard it on a Bob Monkhouse (or was it Tom O’Connor?) show when I was a teenager. Thanks for writing it out – I’ve since forgotten the details to the narrative, and found myself unable to tell the joke recently!
It works well when imagined in a small local library, I agree. I’m glad I was able to remind you of the details!
Happy Easter to you, too Letizia
I haven’t heard it yet – it is not translatable, as the German chicken-sound does not resemble book, nor does the frog sound like reddit.German chicken make Gohk, gohk – or Bohk, bohk … (Hühner gackern) and frogs sound like Quark (curd) or Quebec.
Then it doesn’t work at all in German! I’ve always heard that chickens say “cluck cluck” in English and frogs say “gribbit” (I think) in English, but I suppose this is close enough for the joke to work!
Letizia that is just TOO CUTE for words, my daughter and I laughed and could imagine a picture book illustrated. Thank you for making us laugh on this Easter Sunday and have a lovely Easter.
Glad to have made you and your daughter laugh! This would be perfect for a little illustrated book, I agree.
So cute! Thanks for the Easter weekend smile. 🙂
Glad it made you smile, Carrie! It’s really so silly but does make us laugh 🙂 Thanks for the tweet and Happy Easter!
Great joke. This one is not at all Easter related, but animal/insect/book related and v amusing – I hope this link works…. 🙂
haha, great one and I had never seen it before! Thanks for sharing it 🙂
Hehe that’s funny! It’s great to be laughing with you on the Easter weekend, Letizia 🙂
Always good to share a laugh! 🙂
Laughter is a highlight in the day, for sure, sweet friend! 🙂
How funny. This makes me chuckle. 🐓🐸🐓
Perfect emoticons too 🙂
🙂 That’s great Letizia, I’ll have to bring that one out if I’m ever asked for any library jokes!
I like to imagine that you are often asked for those, haha! I kept telling this silly joke every since hearing it so thought I’d share it with all of you as well.
Sadly I don’t think I ever have been, but now I’ve got one up my sleeve just in case 🙂
Om my. At least the librarian got her answer.
Very good and well told! One for the pub tonight.
Hope they enjoyed it down at the pub! It’s always fun to make the chicken and frog noises 🙂
I am having a cackle over this one. 😀
If chickens could laugh, I think they would cackle, don’t you? 🙂
Cute. :). Happy Easter!
Thanks, you too! 🙂
It’s already been said…but, too CUTE!!!
Cluck, Cluck 🙂
The old ones are the best. I hope you had a happy Easter and here’s a bad joke backatcha. a guy walks into a bar and sees Vincent Van Gogh, he approaches him and says says how much he loves his work and can he buy him a beer, to which Vinny replies no,thanks I’ve got one ‘ere.
haha, great one!
I liked this joke more than I should have.
I know how you feel.
Hahah – thanks for making me laugh! We’ll have to work a goat in there somewhere though. 🙂 Happy Spring!
The goat ate the books probably 🙂
Perfect joke for Book Boosters!
Hard not to giggle when you love books like we do, right? 🙂
told the joke to my students–they cracked up…
I love the image of you telling the joke (sounds effects and all) and all the students giggling. That made my day.
This is the only class where I could get away with such wit. It’s the end of the day and another student and I banter back and forth with bad puns throughout the period. “Grab your textbooks,” I’ll say. “Was that you who paged us?” he might retort. It does get ridiculous some days.
What fun! He sounds like a clever one.
Love this! I’m going to share it with my young author’s class today. Happy spring to you!
Am delighted that you’re going to share it. I will imagine you making the “book book!” cackles and the “read it read it” croaks!
What a nice, simple little respite from longer, more serious posts 😀 Thanks! 😀
A little moment to be silly is always good 🙂
LOL! share this on FB.
Glad it made you laugh 🙂
Hilarious! I’ve been out on spring break, so I’m a bit late. Poor chicken….never to get a different answer. 😀
She was frantic, the poor thing 🙂
Haha, this is very sweet, and funny!
A good laugh, right? 🙂
Very! And actually you posted that on the day of my birthday – so it’s like a lovely birthday present! 😉 So thank you!
Yeah, Joyeux Anniversaire!
I need to remember this one for the next time I’m around kids.
It makes them giggle every time!
I love the joke! Thank You telling it. When talking animals in libraries, In Oulu, Finland they have tested the idea of children’s reading to a dog in libraries. The child reads some book to the dog in a peaceful place. The results have been promising because dog is a good listener and thus it inspires children to read more and more books.
They have this program here in the US as well! It is such a great idea. Especially for children who are shy about their reading skills. Dogs are wonderful listeners. I’m happy to hear the program exists in Finland too!
I have to tell this one to my librarian husband!
It’s so silly but I’m sure he will love it and will share it at work!
Oh, yes! He has lots of meetings with other librarians, so he has a built-in audience that is bound to love it too!
Not a bad joke 🙂
It’s silly, but fun 🙂
