Joke of the Week: Don't Sweat It

Posted By on Mon, Jul 17, 2017 at 11:08 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 Williston's Peter Brown. Take it away, Peter…

I walked into my bathroom the other day and I noticed that my toilet was sweating. I was like, “Relax, toilet. What are you so nervous about? It’s just me. We’ve done this plenty of times before. Are you hot or something? You’re looking a little bit flush. Do you want me to take off your tank top?"

About That Joke
Says Brown: I noticed my toilet was sweating on a hot, humid day in July, and the idea that a toilet could be nervous made me laugh. I tweeted about it and a couple people responded with puns. I turned it into a short joke, which then helped me make it to the finals of the 2016 Vermont's Funniest Comedian competition. Also, toilets are hilarious.
