A New Pet

Once upon a time a man was lonely and decided life would be more
fun if he had a pet. So he went to the pet store and told the
owner that he wanted an unusual pet. He then bought a centipede,
which came in a little white box. He took the box home and
decided he would start off by taking his new pet to the bar to
have a drink. So he asked him:

“Would you like to go to Frank’s Place and have a beer?”

No answer. This bothered him a bit So a few minutes later he
again asked him: “How about going to the bar and having a drink
with me?”

Again… no answer. He asked him one more time: “Hey, would you
like to go & have a drink with me?”

A little voice came out of the box: “I heard you the first time.
I’m just putting on my shoes.”
