A man went to a pet store in search of a pet that would not aggravate his allergies. After some deliberation, he bought a centipede, which came in a little cardboard box that served as its house.
After he’d brought the centipede home, the man thought it would be fun to take his new pet to the bar for a drink. So he said, “Would you like to go to Frank’s with me and have a beer?”
There was no answer. The man thought the centipede might be hard of hearing, so he moved closer to the box and asked again, “Would you like to go to Frank’s with me and have a beer?”
Still there was no answer. The man put his face closer to the box and shouted, “HEY, YOU IN THERE! WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO TO FRANK’S AND HAVE A BEER WITH ME?”
An exasperated little voice came out of the box:
“I heard you the first time! I’m putting on my bloody shoes!”
