Pretty Good Jokes

Ethnic Jokes
Back in the day when a lot of men got their shave at the barber's, a man is stretched out in the chair and has that hot towel steaming his face when another man rushes in and yells,"Beudreaux! Your house is on fire!" Well that Cajun jumped out of that chair and ran 4 or 5 blocks and came to a dead stop. He said, "What in the world I'm running like that for? In the first place, I ain't got no house. Cause in the second place, my name ain't Beudreaux."

—Marsh Pickett Jr., Tupelo, Mississippi
