I thought you might like to amuse yourselves with this ‘One Size Fits All’ joke, while you wait patiently for ‘Getting A Kick Out Of Picasso’.
Instructions: Say the following (preferably to an audience)
“Hey, this pasta isn’t ‘al dente’ … ” Then add punchline provided … “Its Al Pacino”
It may work best if you can use it in some stereotypical Italian/pasta context, but this is not essential. Give it a try yourself, now. First-timers, take it slowly. It’s trickier than it looks. Remember that the key to greatiming comedy is.
All done? Wonderful. Now below is your introductory set of punchlines. Use them as you see best: where you think they will get the most laughs.
Or, don’t use them at all. Think of your own punchlines. It’s even more fun
“Hey, this pasta isn’t ‘al dente’ It’s:
Al Jolson Al Gore Al Murray al-Qa’ida Aldi
Alcoholics Anonymous Al Green (‘Let me say that si-i-i-ince, since we’ve been together…etc’)
Al day and al of the night Al Jancovic (Man is he weird) Alabama
Al Di Meola Ali float like a butterfly, Sting like a bee Ali Baba and his 40 corrupt British Politicians
Al Capone (‘guns don’t argue …’) Aluminium Al get that later
Bollocks to this I’m off to bed.
