A mummy balloon, a daddy balloon and a baby balloon are all watching TV one evening. After a few hours, the parents announce they are ready to head off to bed, but they tell the baby balloon he's OK to stay up a bit longer.
An hour later, baby balloon finishes watching his show and also heads towards the bedroom.
As they're only balloons and lack a proper source of income, they live in a one-bedroom apartment and all have to share the same bed. The baby balloon tries to get in, but mummy balloon and daddy balloon are so big that he's unable to squeeze himself in beside them. So he turns to daddy balloon, unties his knot to let out a little air, and tries getting into bed again: still not enough room.
He goes next to mummy balloon and also unties her knot to let out some air: a little better, but not quite enough.
So he unties his own knot, lets out some air, and is finally able to fit comfortably into the bed.
The next morning, baby balloon wakes up to find himself alone in the bed. He gets up, and in the kitchen he finds his parents sitting at the breakfast table, both looking quite angry.
Daddy balloon says, "Son, we're pretty upset about what you did last night. You let me down, you let your mother down — but worst of all, you let yourself down".
We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)
