Visiting the Parents
My mom just gave me a book of card tricks, a $25 gas card and $4.50 in coins. Which means she still has no idea what I do for a living but she knows there’s no money in it. Visiting my mom is like visiting a time share. You’ll get an hour long lecture you’re not that interested in but afterwards you can probably get a free whale watching trip. Seriously. My mom is the queen of coupons. She once gave me a coupon for Burger King. Which. I didn’t know that was possible! That’s a weird idea to me. Like the food could be cheaper than it already is. I want to expand on that but nothing is coming to mind right now. Plus I’m blocked by a John Roy bit. “Hot dog and fries $1.50 – that’s TOO LOW. How bout I give you $4 and you don’t do whatever you did to make that one so cheap to mine.”
Anyway – I’m working on a potential gig in Canada. I was thinking about how I might have to switch my jokes around depending on what they have. I quickly googled and found out that Canada DOES have a hooters, they have outback steakhouse as well, but would Canada get the 4 balls joke? I don’t know how into baseball Canada is. It is America’s sport. Maybe change that to a hockey reference, like High Sticking. lol. That’s funny enough to be worth trying in America too.
