So, did you hear the one about the two est centers that merged, and became a sumus …?

    This is a perfect joke. I’m adding it to my previous longstanding repertoire of one Freud joke.

    Wow — two jokes. I’m going to hell with myself, I am.

    Lawsamercy, someone got my joke! Why there must be five or six of us out there.

    Now, the Freud joke. Is that the one about what comes between fear and sex? If so, I love that one.

  3. Mo-ski Says:

    I know a different Freud joke, but I’d love to know the Freud and sex one.

    Here’s mine:

    Setting: Two psychiatrists having dinner together:

    Psychiatrist 1: I made the worst Freudian slip this morning – just awful.

    Psychiatrist 2: Tell me – what was it about?

    Psychiatrist 1: Well, I was having breakfast with my wife, and what I meant to say was, “Dear, would you please pass the coffee?” but what came out of my mouth was “YOU FUCKING BITCH! YOU’VE RUINED MY LIFE!”

    Ba-da-bum …

  4. Linus Says:

    OK, you have to be a little bilingual for this one, like the Latin joke.

    Q: According to Freud, what comes between fear and sex?

    A: 5.

  5. Mo-ski Says:

    And sometimes a 5 is just a 5, y’know?

  6. Linus Says:

    Well, it doesn’t work so well written down. Try it this way: According to Freud, what comes between vier and sechs? Ah…

  7. Mo-ski Says:

    Oh, I got the joke — and I love it. I was just trying to paraphrase the apocryphal “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar” Siggy.

    ba-da-bum …

    Great joke(s) … but .. [scratching my head] … why sumus and not sunt?

  9. Linus Says:

    Chris, I suppose either one would do: I guess I just like the sound of sumus better, and it semantically sort of makes sense. You know, two little assertiveness training centers that get together and become a “we” … but it could have gone either way.

    Mo-ski, I was just checking: that’s a joke that doesn’t take well to transcribing. The “est” joke is mine (original!), the Freud joke I heard on the annual Prairie Home Companion joke show. It’s one of my very favorites, but it also requires a bit of knowledge coming in…

    mo-ski! are you back from Poland?

  11. Mo-ski Says:

    Tak :)

    Although “back” is a relative term regarding my relationship with Polska. I’m gearing up for yet another spring romp in the garden spot of Eastern Europe. (Would that be an oxymoron?)
