Gang Activity: Jane Plays Hardball With Joe

November 15, 2006

[Liberals, submit your work for the next edition of Carnival of the Liberals to be hosted right here at Stump Lane.]

Suggestion: read the original comic first to get a feel for the joke, then read the alternate version. You’re invited to leave your own take on the joke in our underpopulated comment section. Click here for past examples.

Bazooka Joe 6“Isn’t he a wonderful pitcher, Joe? . . . He always hits their bats no matter where they hold them!”

“Actually, Jane, he gets a lot of movement on a pitch he throws called a gyroball. It spins like a ‘spiral’ football. (Or a bullet!) Thing dives down and to the left: very hard to hit.”

“I couldn’t have nothin’ with you, Joe! You completely ruined my joke with your superfluous chatter! Look at the scene in the background! We have a pitcher being taken deep: getting downright schooled. Obviously not your precious ‘D-Mat’— to whom you’ve already assigned that tiresome nickname; before a contract agreement has even been reached —with his wondrous ‘gyroball.'”

“Gee. I’m sorry, Jane.”

“Go to hell, Joe.”
