Punchlines for jokes I can't remember

I remember some punchlines, but can't remember the jokes.  Usually if you want to tell a joke, and you know the punchline, you can create a joke that fits.  Kind of like figuring out the ending to a story you want to write, then writing the story to make it work, except coming up with a joke to fit a punch-line is usually a lot easier.

So here are a few punchlines I remember.  I don't remember the jokes that went with them.

  1. Look at the schmuck on that camel!
  2. Boy Superman, when you get drunk, you're a real bastard.
  3. It's a duck! Yuck, yuck, yuck.
  4. Radi-o-o-o-o-o-o  (this was screamed by a penguin sliding off an igloo, that's all I remember)
  5. It's a nick-knack Patti Whack! Give the frog a loan!
I can't think of any others right now.  It's a very warm day, and my mind is moving slow.

I only remember the drunk superman one.

Grace: Cool!

aldon: I sort of remember the Superman one, enough that I could probably make something up if I had to win a bet.

Today, as I re-read the list, I remembered the joke about the frog who offered a small glass replica of the Statue of Liberty as collateral to borrow money from a loan officer named Paddy Whack.

As to superman, the version I know had him telling people at the bar that if you jump off the Empire State building, the amount of wind resistance generated would prevent you from getting hurt.

I hadn't heard the shmuck on a camel joke before, but I just looked it up. (Google is your friend, at least some times)

Never heard of any of them, but they did make me smile.

aldon: I thought about looking them up on Google, but never quite got around to it.

Heather: glad it made you smile. I figured after all this Kafka garbage & nature of reality crap I've been writing about, I might as well lighten up a bit.
