Joke of the Week: The Results Are In

Posted By on Mon, Nov 20, 2017 at 12:55 PM

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 Burlington's Richard Bowen. Take it away, Richard…

I just got a test-tube puppy. It's a Lab mix.

About That Joke
Says Bowen: I wrote this joke at some point on a two-month East Coast tour this summer. I was somewhere between New York City and Wilmington, N.C. There is a word chop shop in my brain that constantly searches for double entendres, anagrams, spoonerisms, portmanteaus and other linguistic tricks that I don't know the labels for yet. I do not own a dog.

Richard Bowen has performed in 36 cities over the last year, as well as two Vermont state prisons. A skatepark builder by trade, he constantly travels for work, telling jokes in as many places as possible between jobs. He also produces a monthly 'zine of 30 to 40 short, clean jokes, aptly titled "Rich Jokes." Copies are available through his Instagram.

See Him Live
Bowen headlines on Tuesday, December 12, at the Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington . He hosts six show in three nights featuring headliner Tone Bell, December 29 through 31, at the Vermont Comedy Club in Burlington.
