A long way to tip a Rary

It's a long, long way to tipperary

Groaner pun alert – a long way to tip a Rary — enjoy!

A man goes into a pet shop and asks for something unusual.

The owner shows him a rabbit-like animal, and says, “This is a Rary. They only move about by rolling around, and to get one started you have to give it sort of a pat, but they’re clean.”

So the man buys the Rary, but after it’s been home for a while, it starts rolling about uncontrollably and breaking his things.

The shop owner won’t take it back, so he drives 100 km out of town to a tall cliff, intending to give it a push off.

He meets someone there, and after hearing the story, the fellow remarks, “That’s a long way to tip a Rary!”

(Editor’s note: this is a riff on the famous song, It’s a Long Way to Tipperary)

  1. There was a comedy series on UK tv in either the late 60s or early 70s where a person falls out of a window with the punch line ” that’s a long way to tip a rary”. Also in the series was an episode where male students are trying to seduce female students by hypnotising them. Despite this, a young Madeline Smith slaps them despite being hypnotised. Does anyone else remember this.
