THE END
MONOLOGUE JOKES:
-A man dressed as Elmo was accused of yelling obscenities at children in
Central Park. People knew something was up when they saw Elmo tickling
himself.
-Kenny G and his wife of 20 years are filing for divorce. Despite their
differences, he hopes to end things on a high note. It’s a shame,
really. Divorce is never good. And according to his wife, neither was
the sax.
-Mike Tyson will be on Broadway next month debuting his one-man show
“Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth”. Tyson admitted that aside from boxing,
performing on Broadway is something he’s always wanted to sink his teeth
into.
-A town in Ireland just broke the Guinness world record for most nuns in
one place. The town was flooded with so many virgins you would have
thought it was Comic-con.
-A sports
where you
if you’re
home with
bar in Staten Island recently installed a crane machine game
patrons can play to win a lobster for dinner. But don’t worry,
not into playing games, you can still go to the bar and come
crabs.
-Scientists are suggesting that dinosaur flatulence may have caused
prehistoric global warming. Apparently the smell was so bad that even
Pangaea couldn’t be around it anymore.
-A man in Pennsylvania was given a DUI after he tried to high five the
officer that told him to turn his lights on. The officer kindly reminded
the man that in prison inmates don't do high fives...they just pound
each other.
-Chris Christie has stated that he may be ready to run for President in
2016. In four years time, the governor is certain that he’ll find a big
enough platform to stand on.
-A college student in Kansas found a bag of cocaine in a textbook that
she ordered from Amazon.com. When asked to rate her purchase, the woman
replied "I was nose deep after page 67.”
-Two men from Alabama recently started a company named Holy Smokes,
which takes cremated ashes and loads them into bullets. And if you think
that’s odd you should have seen their last business venture: Six Feet
Underwear.
-Congratulations to Neil Diamond, who recently tied the knot with his
manager this past weekend. Despite being married twice before, Neil
insists that this diamond will be forever.

The winners of the two separate rounds will then face each other in an
even more humorous multi-sentence sentence showdown.
