Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Beware the punchlines of my wife
They’re why I'll always wear a frown
When we’re in company I die
Unclever, you struggle for laughs

She’s known for mixed-up witticisms
Know she’s stuffed humour at swell affairs
When with her gags a crowd she’s hounding
I'd find our guests standing there with blank stares

Beware the punchlines of my wife
Drat! Why’s she get them wrong way ‘round?
Humour-incapable, but why?
For: telling wisecracks that aren’t

She busts out puns that are unpunny
She’s caused me shame, woe her jests do
Apropos, riddles, just be gaffin’
How can knock knock jokes end up blithely screwed?

These are the punchlines of my wife, bleh!
Her lines, they always run aground
She fluffs her quips, it’s no surprise
And even clichés, transform...

Beware the punchlines of my wife, yeah (save me)
That's why I'll always wear a frown

(Fade, to disappointment)

She has a few, and she thinks she's a hit. Funny story, and awesome title sub.

Can relate...was hoping to read some short examples within....At parties, my ex would often bring up her theory, or complaint, of a compass...saying, "Why does the darned thing always point north? What if I don't want to go north..? no one tried to explain.

Thanks Glen. I could just picture some clueless woman and her cringing husband; made this one easy to write.

AFW: My ex didn't tell jokes, but it was a riot listening to him trying to remember how to say Jean Claude van Damme...

JB: just make sure not to leave any hanging chads...

Johnneeeeeeee!: So good to see you back! Please say you'll stay!

Interesting idea. I would have used the wo-o-ohs to make wha-a-ats! Telling jokes does seem to be more of a male thing. My ex didn't, but she could be funny in a quippish way. She had a penchant for Mateus rose, and used to say 'One bottle of this and I'm anybody's'. I stopped buying it, except for special occasions home alone. Other examples are probably not permissible here.

Sorry I'm late. Excellent work! 555! I don't know if its true or not, but I heard one time that most of the dirty jokes were made up by women.

Just seeing the words Merry and Pippin in the parody list will always lift my mood - and your works never disappoint :^) A laugh-out-loud masterpiece, well worth a punchline of 555.

LL - maybe you could sneak some examples into a parody-work ;)

Leo - Fashionably late is permissible. Hey! Did ya hear what the mop said to the floor?

Wendy - good to see you again. Appreciate the kind words. :)
