    A college football team had just finished their final practice before the important game the next day, and the Coach told them all to lay off the drinking, women, and partying and to get a good night's sleep.

    Later on that evening, the Coach stopped at a bar for a drink, and noticed his star Running Back was at the far end of the bar drinking and laughing with some women.

    The boy saw the Coach coming in, but didn't know that the Coach had already spotted him, and quietly left the bar to hide out in the Men's Room.

    The Coach then said to the Bartender: "Give me an Old Fashioned, and see what the Back in the Boys Room will have."

    Maybe a few of you will get this one...it's a parody on the old song: "The Boys in the Back Room".

    No, Chrissy, but it's a clever play on words, which I always think is funny!

    Thanks, Gloria and Beatrice!

    Again, Ladies & Gents...my kind of comedy is Word Play, which is based on Cleverness, not Comedy...sort of like a Pun.

    So I won't be posting anything "Clever" in "Make me Laugh" anymore.

    You all gave up on Tom Swifties and Spoonerisms, so I should have known by then that your taste in comedy was mainstream, not sophisticated.

    @Hal Pollner
    The man with the Howitzer shell! I love it!

    The Thompson, nice, but late generation, still nice, though.

    Mine, an Auto Ordnance 1928 had serial number 152-A.

    Hey Frank,

    That's not a Howitzer Shell...it's a 40mm Antiaircraft Shell.
