    The joke was on me as I put on my slipper only to feel something squidgy inside which turned out to be a caterpillar!

    I <3 those slippers!

    The children were ready for bed and wearing their slippers, and I stopped them from playing a joke on me by reading them the story of the hungry caterpillar.

    I thought it was a joke, when they told me the young man in his slippers ate the caterpillar in two bites.

    He cracked a joke by asking, "How many slippers does a caterpillar need?"
  • exmemberexmember Posts: 2,332 ✭✭✭✭✭
    She thought it was a joke when I told her my slippers' brand name, which was Caterpillar Inc.

    This is a joke

    A lonely man bought himself a caterpillar as a pet
    One day he asked the caterpillar " Do you want to come out for a walk?"
    The caterpillar didn't answer hiding in its home
    "Do you want to come out for a walk mate?!" the man asked again
    Still, there were no response from the caterpillar
    The man got irritated and shouted "Are you coming out for a walk!?"
    The caterpillar poked its head out and shouted "I'm putting on my slipper! calm down!"
    -----------
    @chyijung - I love your joke! However, the object of this game is to get the 3 words into ONE sentence, which is a lot harder!

    Some fairy stories seem to be joking, like the caterpillars making slippers from their own silk.

    The blue caterpillar joked about Alice's slippers that were now way to big for her.
  • FrankFrank Moderator Posts: 5,541 mod
    My slippers are actually flip flops and the joke is, that when I wear them, it feels as if I have caterpillars between my toes.

    The caterpillar waits until he transforms into the butterfly then buy himself slippers. A lot cheaper that way. Isn't this even a joke? :D
