Christmas string

One Christmas Eve, when all the presents had been wrapped, there were just three pieces of string left.

“€˜You know, we’ll probably just be thrown on the fire,”€™ String Number 1 said.

“€˜Or in the garbage!”€™ String Number 2 moaned.

“€˜We can’t have that!”€™ String Number 3 cried.

“€˜So what can we do?”€™ the other two pieces asked.

“€˜Let’s go out for a meal!”€™ String Number 3 suggested.

And off they went down to the “€˜Greasy Penguin Cafe”€™. It was packed with Christmas revellers. String Number 1 said, “€˜Right, fellows, what’ll we eat?”

“I’d like some tomato soup,”€™ said String Number 2.

“€˜And how about stuffed turkey to follow…and we could have Christmas pudding for dessert,”€™ said String Number 3.

String Number 1 went to the counter and said, “€˜Three tomato soups, three stuffed turkeys and three Christmas puddings, my good man!”€™

The waiter took one look at him and said, “€˜Get lost, shorty. I don’t serve pieces of string …. and you’re just a piece of string!”€™

String Number 1 went back to the others. “€˜He refused to serve me!”€™

String Number 2 asked, “€˜Did you say ‘€˜please’€™?”€™

“€˜No,”€™ admitted String Number 1.

“€˜Then let me try!”€™ String Number 2 went to the bar and said, “€˜Three tomato soups, three stuffed turkeys and three Christmas puddings, please.”€™

But the waiter replied, “€˜Get lost, shorty. I don’t serve pieces of string … and you’re just a piece of string!”€™

Christmas stringString Number 2 went back to the others to report his failure. “€˜Here, guys, let me try,”€™ String Number 3 offered. But, before he went to the bar he tied a knot in the top of his head and fluffed the end out till he looked like a frayed piece of string.

He went up to the bar. “€˜Three tomato soups, three stuffed turkeys and three Christmas puddings, please!”€™

The waiter looked at him and sighed. “€˜Get lost, shorty. I don’t serve pieces of string … and you’re  just a piece of string!”€™

And String Number 3 replied “€˜No, I’m a frayed knot!”
