Unusual Pet

Dennis Robb

A bloke was lonely and so he decided life would be more fun if he had a pet.  So he went to the pet store and told the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet.

After some discussion, he finally bought a centipede, which came in a little white box to use for his house.  He took the box back home, found a good location for the box, and decided he would start off by taking his new pet to the bar to have a drink.

So he asked the centipede in the box,  "Would you like to go to Frank's with me and have a beer?"

But there was no answer from his new pet.

This bothered him a bit, but he waited a few minutes and then asked him again,  "How about going to the bar and having a drink with me?"

But again, there was no answer from his new friend and pet.  So he waited a few minutes more, thinking about the situation.  He decided to ask him one more time; this time putting his face up against the centipede's house and shouting,  "Hey,  in there!  Would you like to go Frank's place and have a drink with me?

A little voice came out of the box...........

"I heard you the first time!  I'm putting my bloody Shoes on!"
