The Bear (2)
No serious joke (and there's yet another oxymoron) site about the English language could be complete without a collection of puns. Bear with us; is won't take long.
A bear ambled into a diner, reared up on his hind legs and slapped his massive paws on the counter, scattering the sauce bottles and napkin holder all over the floor.
Looking straight at the waitress, the bear growled: "I want toast and ..."
...then stopped mid-sentence, silently staring at the waitress.
The waitress stood there motionless, politely waiting for the bear to finish his sentence.
The bear continued: "...and honey."
"Of course" replied the waitress. "But why the big paws?"
