View From Purcell, Oklahoma: A Night of Hard Drinking: A Joke

A Night of Hard Drinking: A Joke

A Night of Hard Drinking: A Joke

Two hard working rough necks left the bar after a long night of drinking at a back woods bar and got into their truck. 

  Jed was driving and he started it up. After a couple of minutes of driving, an old man's face appeared in the passenger window and tapped lightly. 

Jake screamed, "Look at the window. There's an old ghost's face there!" Jed stomped on the accelerator to speed up, but the face stayed in the window. 

Jake rolled his window down part way and, scared out of his wits, said, "What do you want?"

The old man softly replied, "You got a cigarette?" 

Jake handed the old man a cigarette and yelled, "Step on it," to Jed, rolling up the window in terror.

A few minutes later they calmed down and started laughing. 

Jed said, "I don't know what happened, but don't worry... the speedometer says we're doing 80 now." 

All of a sudden there was a light tapping on the window and the old man reappeared.

"There he is again," Jake yelled. He rolled down the window and shakily said, "Yes?"

"Do you have a light?" the old man quietly asked. Jake threw a lighter out the window saying, "Step on it!"

Now The speedometer showed they were driving about 100 miles an hour, trying to forget what they had just seen and heard, when all of a sudden there came some more tapping.

"Oh my God! He's back!" Jake rolled down the window and screamed in stark terror, "ARGHHHHHHH WHAT NOW?"

The old man gently replied, "Hey, Do you guys want some help getting your truck out of the mud?"


Simply another emailed joke, but I found it funny.

Hi Than,

Very cute....stuck in the mud is better than embedded in a tree. Drunks should call a cab.

Than, thankfully a harmless bit of fun. My husband is a volunteer paramedic in our area and Sat. nite/Sun morning, was called out on a motor vehicle rollover in the countryside. The guys were drunk. Their story: they are a band coming home from playing at a wedding, and (supposedly) a deer ran out in front of them, they swerved to miss it, rolled over, and were stuck, so they just decided to sit down and start drinking. 

The cop did not find this funny. OR believable. They weren't hurt, thankfully.
