Adult Halloween Humor #8

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Here's a new Corny you won't find anywhere else -- and I want you to tell me if it is any good:

A young lady, somewhat inebriated, was walking home from a costume party, past the cemetary late Halloween night. Slowly she became aware she was being followed. She looked over her shoulder and saw a very dirty disheveled man, moaning, mumbling, walking stiffly and staggering behind her -- and he was gaining on her! Given her state of mind and location, "A ZOMBIE!" she feared! She felt the stiff cold fingers of his outreached hands brush her hair; and she broke into a run just as the zombie stumbled and fell, clutching at her! Shrieking in terror, the young woman fumbled in her purse and grabbed her cell-phone and punched in 911 while the zombie slowly slipped down her side clutching at her. "HELP!" she screamed to the 911 operator, "It's got me! It's got me! He's grabbed onto my leg and he won't let go!" She was almost incoherent in her terror!

The 911 dispatcher calmly asked her to repeat. "HELP! He's pulling me down! He's pulling my leg!!!" and the young lady went on screaming. She heard the 911 dispatcher's voice saying in calmly her ear, "Stop screaming for help. That won't work! Now do what I tell you.... slap your thigh hard, laugh really loudly, and yell, 'Wow -- what a punchline!' and the zombie should stop pulling your leg!"

    "Pulling your leg" is an expression for "deceiving you" or "teasing you".

    The disheveled man -- or zombie -- was muttering (could've thought he was telling the young lady a joke!) and now he's pulling her leg! (literally and figuratively)
    And/or... the 911 dispatcher, does not believe in real zombies, ESPECIALLY on Halloween night, and believes the young lady is trying to pull HIS leg!

    And the "solution" to the problem of having your leg pulled by a zombie is pretty inane, inadequate, and certainly obtuse to the panicked young lady.

    Part of humor is based on ambiguity, which exists in this joke. But I guess it is too subtle... thanks for your response! emoticon
