The Daily Prompt today:

Tell us a joke! Knock-knock joke, long story with a unexpected punchline, great zinger — all jokes are welcome!


My first real job was working at a grocery store. I was what they called a “service clerk”. Which is a fancy name for the guy that bags groceries and gets told to do most of the least pleasant tasks around the store.

One day I was bagging groceries, and this old man came through the line with a few items. The cashier asked how he was, and says:

“Like a tailor.”

The cashier: “A tailor?”

Old man: “Yeah, you know. So so.”


Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.
