A man goes to a pet store and tells the owner that he wants to buy a pet that can do anything.
The shop owner suggests a loyal dog.
The man replies, “Come on, a dog?”
The owner says, “How about a cat?”
The man replies, “No way! A cat certainly cannot do everything. I want a pet that can do everything!”
The shop owner thinks for a minute and then says, “I’ve got it! A centipede!”
The man says, “A centipede? I can’t imagine a centipede doing everything, but okay… I’ll try a centipede.”
He brings the centipede home and says to the centipede, “Clean the kitchen.”
30 minutes later, he walks into the kitchen and … it’s immaculate!
All the dishes and silverware have been washed, dried, and put away the counter-tops cleaned the appliances sparkling the floor waxed.
He is absolutely amazed.
He says to the centipede, “Go clean the living room.”
Twenty minutes later, he enters the living room.
The carpet has been vacuumed, the furniture cleaned and dusted the pillows on the sofa plumped, plants watered.
The man thinks to himself, “This is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. This really is a pet that can do everything!”
Then he says to the centipede, “Run down to the corner and get me a newspaper.”
The centipede walks out the door.
10 minutes later… no centipede.
20 minutes later… no centipede.
30 minutes later… no centipede.
At this point, the man wonders what is going on.
The centipede should have been back in a few minutes.
45 minutes later … still no centipede!
He can’t imagine what could have happened.
So he goes to the front door, opens it…and there’s the centipede sitting right outside.
Did the centipede run away?
Did it get run over by a car?
Where is that centipede?
So he goes to the front door, opens it … and there the centipede is sitting right outside the door.
The man says, “Hey! I sent you down to the corner store 45 minutes ago to get me a newspaper. What is happening?!”
The centipede says, “I’m goin’! I’m goin’! I’m just puttin’ on my shoes!”
Hope this joke will make you smile! Have a nice day!
