The butcher’s pun – An atrocious, groaner pun that my father, a former butcher, would have appreciated
A man walks into a butcher shop and orders a pound of sausages.
The butcher prepares the order, then says, ‘I bet you the price of those sausages that you can’t get those pieces of meat down off the shelf behind me.’
The man regards the shelf carefully, then says, ‘I’m not betting …. The steaks are too high.’
