My Dear Sir Chidester,
I do know some funny jokes. Here is one of my favorites:
Does Ludwig like chicken jokes?
My Lovely Lady J:
I have been chuckling all day over your joke, and a good thing you told it to me, too, since there is nothing much to laugh about here at Boo Hoo Castle. But I will tell you more about that tomorrow.
For now, I'll answer your question: does Ludwig like chicken jokes? I am not sure. Do you know any? If you tell me a good chicken joke, then I will see if Ludwig laughs or not.
But you must not be sorry if Ludwig doesn't laugh, because Ludwig does not like chickens. I think this is because his great, great grandfather, Ludwig the Wise, was once insulted by a red chicken. This chicken called Ludwig the Wise a very rude name (a buzzard, actually, which is the worst thing you can call a noble bird!), and the line of gumberius gumberius has, ever since, disliked chickens. Ludwig will never eat eggs for breakfast, no matter how they are cooked. How do you like your eggs?
Ludwig did like your joke, though! She laughed and laughed until her feathers stood up straight in the air. This is a good thing, for Boo Hoo Castle has made her rather grumpy; she has had to wear her furry socks because the floors are so cold!
So my dear Lady J, thank for the good joke. I hope you have a delightful day, full of cool rainshowers and warm tomato soup.
I remain yours most dotingly,
Chidester the Gumberry
