    My first joke, which I always thought I wrote: what did the skeleton waiter say to his guests? Bone Appetit

    My first joke, and one I still tell to this day:

    What did the zero say to the eight?


    “Nice Belt.”

    The first joke I actually *remember* telling got me smacked in the face by my aunt. It was “What begins with an ‘F’and ends with “u-c-k” ? **SMACK ** ” I was gonna say Firetruck ! SOB !”

    The first Bobcat joke I remember retelling was ” Animals are our friends but they can’t pick you up at the airport. “

    Man, I wish I could think of a joke I made up as a kid.

    I remember telling this one, which is also a song.

    “A peanut sat on a railroad track, his heart was all a-flutter, when ’round the bend came number 10 – toot, toot, peanut butter! SQUISH!”

    It’s all in the “squish”.

    Great show! This will be the greatest year of Pop My Culture yet!

    I remember the first dirty joke I learned which was in the 4th grade. My dad told me it. It went “Why are chickens so ugly? You’d be ugly too if you had a pecker sticking out of your head.” I must have told everyone in school that joke and I’m not sure if I even got it.

    I don’t remember the first joke I ever told — I was partial to the “Orange you glad I didn’t say banana” school of jokes — but I remember the first one I wrote.

    I was about 5 or 6. (Maybe a 7 based on the vocab.) It goes:

    Q. What do you call a kangaroo that dresses like Madonna?

    A. A walla-be.

    (Like “wanna be.” Get it?)

    My parents subscribed to the Chicago Tribune, and the Sunday comics would publish drawings and jokes sent in by kids. They actually published this one!

    The first joke I remember telling was:

    Where do pencils come from? Pennsylvania!

    Great episode! Bobcat needs his own podcast.

    Johnny Weismuller tried to drown a monkey! What an awesome story!

    (Normally I don’t endorse monkey-drowning. But if you listen to this episode … the monkey kinda deserved it in this particular instance).

    I remember a joke that my friend and I had attempted to create, but that failed on take-off. The only line we ever got out was, “Once, there was a ground squirrel who lived in a tree.”

    That became an inside joke of its own. Pathetic, no?

    And, of course, this was another fantastic episode.

    Seriously how drunk was Bobcat? I love the guy’s comedy and I love his honesty I downloaded this one with anticipation. Dude was seriously drinkley pooed.
