A Short Play in Which We Laugh at Stupid Jokes.

Setting: Austin, Texas. The two of us are walking downtown. We are drunk on doughnuts. Everything is making us laugh.

—————

Act I.

Rand: Well, that’s just ridiculous. They obviously meant ‘Parking.’ Not ‘Cocktails.’

—————

Act II.

Rand: I was going to move there.

Me: Really.

Rand: Yeah, but I just never got around to it.

—————

Act III.

Rand: What do you think that company does?

Me: It’s … it’s for when your pet witnesses a crime and is going to turn state’s evidence.

Rand: Oh, god …

Me: And so your pet needs a new identity, and they give him one. If he’s like, a schnauzer, he becomes a corgi. And the dog’s like, “But I’m not a corgi,” and the feds are like, “YOU ARE EITHER A LIVE CORGI OR A DEAD SCHNAUZER.”

—————

The End.

      Thank you! I thought so, too, but I’m totally biased because I always think I’m hilarious.

  • Act 3 for the win. Promptly send me some of whatever donuts you were on?, please and thank you.
