Joke of the Week: The Gift That Keeps Giving

Posted By on Mon, Mar 13, 2017 at 9:32 AM

It's Monday, which means it's time for your weekly dose of locavore levity: the Joke of the Week! This week's joke comes from South Burlington's Owen Foley. Take it away, Owen…

I finished a book today, which is a great feeling. Not just the sense of accomplishment, but knowing that now I get to pass that book on and share the gift of knowledge with someone I care about.

There is nothing like walking up to a friend and saying, "Hey, buddy. I was thinking about you, now here is some homework."

About That Joke
Says Foley: I did finish a book — that Katniss Everdeen is a badass — and I was torn between two people that it made me think of. And while deciding, I realized that I had never seen either of them read anything, so it would probably be a burden to either of them. So I donated the book to the library.
