Ridgewalking

Postby Cavesickles » Mar 31, 2011 4:36 pm

So a couple of cavers are ridgewalking on a farmers property in search of a rumored cave. After a while, they stumble upon an impressive looking pit. They immediately drop in a rock to try and figure out the depth, but they don't hear it hit bottom. They grab a larger rock and toss it in. Again, nothing. They then grab the biggest rock they can find, and heave it into the hole, but it makes no sound. Then, one of the cavers notices a very large railroad tie at the edge of the field. The two hoist the tie and carry it back to the hole. They count to three and toss it in. Just as they release the tie rod, a goat comes running full speed towards them and jumps into pit. Confused about what they had just seen, the two walk back to the farmhouse and ask the farmer why his goat would run and jump into the pit. To which the farmer replied "It couldn't have been my goat. I left him tied to a railroad tie!" :laughing:

Unfortunately there was no passage at the bottom, it was just a goat bottom pit.

A buddy of mine who works at a hospital was told that same joke by a patient, after the patient found out he was a caver, only the railroad tie was a transmission. He told it and my buddy thought he was dead serious, all the way till the end when he realized it was a joke after the punch line. lol

They threw the log down the pit and out of nowhere a goat comes running past them and jumps into the pit...........

they ask the farmer.........

He said it wasnt his goat, as his goat was tied to a log............


the log pulled the goat in as the goat was tied to the log. A railroad tie is the 10x10 wooden log that the rails are nailed down to........... not that it matters.

...wouldn't they see the rope and the goat? I mean that is one long rope if they can't see the goat from the log.

OH right. Sorry. Excuse my sometimes overly-analytical brain.

I tend to suck at jokes.

I happen to love goats, so I find the story of this poor goat getting dragged down a pit to be quite sad, but if it were say a horde of jellyfish being thrown down a hole I would be quite happy with it.

Hey well I still don't get why this joke is funny at all, it only kinda makes sense but I guess I have a poor sense of humor!

My usual joke is "Two atoms walk into a bar. One says, 'I think I lost an electron!' the other asks, 'are you sure?' first replies, 'I'm positive!'" which...apparently people only half the time understand, and the other half of the time groan.

But in the last few days, 2 chances have arose where I'm in a group telling jokes. I have told this ridgewalking joke both times, and both times the group was in hysterics.

So thank you! I can tell a funny joke now!

...that I don't get but apparently I still tell it really well!

Amy, try this one.

A priest, a rabbi and a duck walk into a bar.

The bartender says "Is this a joke?"

Some of my favorite nerdy jokes:

A neutron walked into a bar and asked, "How much for a drink?" The bartender replied, "For you, no charge."

Man, entropy isn't what it used to be.

A Helium atom walks into a bar and the bartender asks: "Why the long face?"
Helium doesn't react.

A byte walks into a bar and orders a pint. Bartender asks him "What's wrong?" Byte says "Parity error." Bartender nods and says "Yeah, I thought you looked a bit off."

A physicist, an engineer, and a statistician were out game hunting. The engineer spied a bear in the distance, so they got a little closer. "Let me take the first shot!" said the engineer, who missed the bear by three feet to the left. "You're incompetent! Let me try" insisted the physicist, who then proceeded to miss by three feet to the right. "Ooh, we got him!!" said the statistician.

LOL yeah I know most of those, Luke.

And Phil - that one was already told by someone else both times, and I keep forgetting it.

I suck at remembering jokes when I need to remember them...I guess being caving it stuck with me, ha!

Well, tell the story of why you never see a dead penguin in documentaries about them. It seems they are a very loyal species and many mate for life. When one dies the others use their wing vestiges and beaks to chip out a hole in the ice to bury him.

Then they stand around and sing "Freeze a jolly good fellow, Freeze a jolly good fellow"

Then they kick him in the ice hole. :big grin:
