Among the surprisingly controversial events at this year’s agricultural fair was an insult contest. Farmers with inventions would go before a “Shark Tank”-like panel, and not only would the best inventors get awards, but the panelists would get trophies for the best put-downs.

One chicken farmer came up with an egg protector, which was met with awful puns by all the judges. A soybean farmer invented a bean extractor that broke when he demonstrated it, so the jokes came thick and mean. Finally, a gardener presented his invention designed for lawn care. For hot summer days, he created a special air hose that would keep moss cool so it wouldn’t turn brown and die. The panelists were impressed but still made withering jokes. In fact, one judge who mercilessly dissed the invention was presented with the grand prize.

However, as soon as they gave it to him, he began to shake and stammer and had to be put in a wheelchair.

“What just happened?” said the gardener to a fellow contestant. “One minute he’s making fun of my moss air conditioning, the next he’s all spastic.”

The farmer replied, “No shock there. He got the Moss Cooler Diss Trophy.”

A talented shrimp rehearses for many weeks putting together an evening of Gershwin, Sondheim, and other showtunes. She then goes looking for the right venue to perform.

First she tries the skeleton of a whale, but it’s too big, and the acoustics are poor. Then she tries an abandoned turtle shell, but that’s too dark and echoey. Finally, she comes upon a small, overturned, concave cap. She steps onto it, starts practicing, and immediately feels at home.

Suddenly, a crustacean hurries over and yells, “Hey, what are you doing in my hat?”

“Hat?” says the shrimp. “I thought it was a nightclub!”

“What?” comes the reply. “Can’t you tell the difference between a nightclub and a Crab Beret?”
