DAVE’S GONE BY PUN #59: BECK

A traveler stops by the roadside and sees a nice place to turn in for the night. He walks through the front door, and the bellhop immediately hands him a loaf of sourdough. The traveler shrugs and walks to the front desk, but then he gasps, because right in front of him is world-famous singer-songwriter Beck Hansen.

“I’m a big fan,” the traveler says to the musician, who turns around and punches the poor guy, pow!, right in the face.

The traveler storms to the front desk and says, “Hey! What kind of hotel are you running here?”

The clerk says, “Oh, sir, we’re not a hotel. We’re a Bread and Beck Fist.”
