Stupid bee joke

I feel like I still do some of my most inspired writing in comments on other people's blogs.  I just posted a little story in a comment thread on Mei's blog, and the more I think about the story, the funnier it gets.  Maybe that is just my sleep deprivation talking, but let me just retell the story here for posterity.

The subject was BOOBIES, and it reminded me of one of the last classes of advanced seminar.  My friend Abby had gone shopping at Hot Topic and got loads of funky stuff, including a yellow plastic bracelet that said "I LIKE TO LOOK AT BOOBIES" on it.  She thought the bracelet was a great present for Bikram, so she ran up to him when he came in on Friday and handed it to him.  He was all like "what is this, I don't want it," but he took it up onto the podium and read it into the headset.

"It says, I like to look at boobies... hmm... actually you guys, that reminds me of a joke!  So from normal bees, you get honey.  Right?  So from what kind of bees do you get milk."

I yell out "BOOBIES!!!!" at full volume because 1) I have no shame and 2) I am the only person in a room full of 300+ yogis who can't keep their mouth shut when they know the punchline to a stupid joke.

I just love myself sometimes.  And Bikram.  And Abby.

I miss Boss.  Those were great times.

Had to read it twice because I was THAT slow in the morning.


Can I pretty please borrow it? BTW, I don't think it's a stupid joke, I call that CORNY! :D

Yup - that's me! I am totally "that" girl", who always calls out the answers to Bikram's little call-and-response bits.

Jokes are free for sharing!! Just don't blame me for it. ;-)
