November 29, 2018, 06:19:17 am
About a year ago I woke up in the early hours to a minor revelation, I eventually Ďgotí the joke

Q: Why did the hedgehog cross the road

A: To get to the other side

That's quite good. Not in laugh out loud way, but clever. Makes you wonder whether that was supposed to be the original point of the chicken version, or whether that was just surreal.

Why can't Hedgehogs just share it.

Why can I hear ďThe DoorsĒ playing in my head?

And why was I Today years old when I got that?

I think I'm on the cusp of getting it, but worry it's too high-brow for my meagre comprehension.

Edit because that word doesn't mean what I thought it meant.

I thought the punch line to this was "To see his flat mate", this version I don't get which makes me more low brow than andy_e

For reason it is only this post which has prompted me to realise the double meaning of crossing to the other side, after years of also not getting this joke.

A minor epiphany, although Iím not exactly pissing myself with laughter.

Sorry if I'm being Dense. [ where is the DenseLoner these days, BTW?). I take it that it's implying suicide? To cross over, to transcend?

A minor but meaningful existential discovery. Oh how I laughed..... I nearly pissed myself.

I'd never got it either... Good thread. But is this really music art or culture?

That was the funniest part.  :clap2:

More a renaissance; enlightenment.

I'd never "got it" either.
