Friday (sort of) Funny

The problem with doing a regular Friday Funny is that most things are not really funny funny, more like silly funny or stupid funny or cute funny.  For something to be really funny requires it to be clever not just funny.  So here are a few puns I thought were clever and thus, funny.  What do you think of these?

A group of chess enthusiasts had checked into a hotel, and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. “But why?” they asked as they moved off. “Because,” he said, “I can’t stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer.”

Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, but when they lit a fire, the kayak sank. This proves for once and for all that you can’t have your kayak and heat it, too.

Two boll weevils grew up in South Carolina. One went to Hollywood and became a famous actor. The other stayed behind in the cotton fields and never amounted to much. The second one, naturally, became known as the lesser of two weevils.

A doctor made it his regular habit to stop off at a bar for a hazelnut daiquiri on his way home. The bartender knew of his habit and would always have the drink waiting at precisely 5:03 PM. One afternoon, as the end of the work day approached, the bartender was dismayed to find he was out of hazelnut extract. Thinking quickly, he made a daiquiri with hickory nuts and set it on the bar. The doctor came in at his regular time, took one sip of the drink and exclaimed, “This isn’t a hazelnut daiquiri!” “No, I’m sorry,” replied the bartender, “it’s a hickory daiquiri, doc.”

That’s the best I can do for this Friday (sort of) funny.

    Greg; I think the first line of your first funny was the best (a group of chess enthusiasts had “checked” into a hotel)….I guess you’d have to be a weird chess player to understand the implications….anyway, thanks for chuckle!
