Here we all are… stumbling onward toward 2019. For a bazillion years, I’ve written and produced an annual Toot, Snoot, ‘n Hoot comedy show, proceeds benefitting a variety of good causes. Digging through old, and often fossilized files, I came across one script featuring The Mighty Sheep Dip Art Players in: DAWGDAYS at the TONGUE IN CHEEK SALOON, An Evening of Corn, Comedy and Capers.
I don’t think DAWGDAYS was ever actually produced. It’s so old, it was typed on what was then a state-of-the-art electric typewriter. Remember those? The following jokes came from Dawg Days script and likely are just as ancient as the typewriter. The gags were harvested from everywhere, but not from the Internet, although no doubt they’ve all been posted there by a millennial programmer worker.
In any case, here’s a wad of groaners from the afore-mentioned show. Sweet Grass County is populated mainly by Norwegians, sho love to laugh. I, personally, am Irish/English, I married a Dane so that’s close enough, wouldn’t you say?
