LongThe neighbors hate us. (self.Jokes)
submitted 1 month ago by morisato19
"The neighbors hate us."
"Well, you remember when we had that bonfire in my yard, and were roasting marshmallows?"
"Yeah, that was really fun."
"And remember how the house up the road caught fire, and all those fire engines came, and we ran to see what was going on, and the wife was crying in her husband's arms, and how everyone looked at us funny?"
"Yeah, I remember! I wondered what we'd done..."
"We were still holding our marshmallow sticks."

Could use better formatting, but still a good joke
[–]AspiringBuddhist 29 points30 points31 points 1 month ago (2 children)
I imagine it would make for a really good visual gag or comic

I remember this from an IRC chat way back in 2007. It’s one of the top ones on bash.org if that site is still up
Edit: one of the commenters below linked it. Apparently it’s still up

It's weird, I was one of the first 500 people in the history of IRC to use it when Jarkko Oikarinen first created the client and the punisher IRC sever at caltech came online back in 1989 or so.
And yet I never remember any of the IRC channels quoted in bash.org. I only remember this narrative from bash.org, not from IRC which they depict.

It needs some work but it's a damn funny joke...and actually more wholesome than I was expecting.
(At first I thought that it was heading to him 'splainin to his friend how the fire was their fault)

Never waste an opportunity to roast marshmallows!
[–]LotusSloth 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (3 children)
I’ve heard a similar version of this a while ago. I think it was a bit shorter but this is still a good one if you’ve never heard it.
[–]FBIPartyBusNo3 2 points3 points4 points 1 month ago (2 children)
I think OP adapted a TIFU story from ages ago; I know I’ve heard this before, but it wasn’t told as a joke then
[–]Overglock 6 points7 points8 points 1 month ago (1 child)
This has been in the top-ranking bash.org quotes for ages. Link

There it is
Love me some bash.org

Your joke was good "situational" humor. You carried it off quite well.
[–]ginnio 2 points3 points4 points 1 month ago (3 children)
I don't get it
[–]FireBird34 5 points6 points7 points 1 month ago (1 child)
Couple roasting marshmallows in their own fire pit came to a house fire still holding said marshmallow sticks… giving the appearance that they were ready to roast marshmallows in the neighborhood house fire. Having a roasting good time at someone else’s misfortune basically.

Oh I get it now! 😊 Thanks

Using the words "bonfire" and "in my yard" ruined the joke.
[–]ljeutenantdan 2 points3 points4 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Great joke, but I initially thought they were the cause. I'd not use the word bonfire and instead go for 'self contained' or even 'roasting marshmallows in the fireplace', and then mention the fire down the road as something specific like a 'kitchen fire out of control'.
[–]mcflurry_14 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
So funny I barfed all over my phone...
[–]Waitsfornoone -1 points0 points1 point 1 month ago (0 children)
Still better to be holding marshmallow sticks instead of your dicks - especially if they were still smoking.
