Hi everypuppy and everycat! It's me, Ammy! Here with today's .... OOOH, LOOK! A Katydid!


Ammy 4

...maybe she didn't.

Ammy laughing
Hee hee hee!

OK... while I keep an eye on the Katydid...

Ammy 5

...my very sweet friend Storm Glory or maybe her handsome brother Jackal ... or maybe their very nice mom... asked me, "Hey! What is the rest of the string in a bar joke? I've never heard it. :)" (I mentioned it in my post the other day!) Are you ready? Here goes!
A piece of string walks into a bar, hops up onto a barstool and orders a beer. The bartender narrows his eyes at him and says, "Hey! We don't serve string in here! Beat it, you!" Feeling a bit dejected, the string goes outside, thinks things over, and decides he really wants a beer, so he's going to try again!
The string walks back into the bar, hops up onto a barstool and orders a beer. The bartender says, "Hey! I told you - we don't serve string in here! Now get lost!" The string walks back outside, wanting a beer now more than ever.
Another guy comes out of the bar and says, "I saw what happened in there. That's really crummy. I wish I could help you out."
The string thanks him, and thinks about his offer. "Well, there is something you can do! Would you... if you're serious?"
"Oh, sure I am. What can I do?"
"Would you sort of separate my ends for me? You know, fray me out a bit? Rustle me up?"
"Sure, pal." So the guy does.
Then the string says, "One more thing. Would you tie me in a knot?"
The guy accommodates him, the string thanks him, and they part company.
The string, full of confidence now, walks back into the bar, hops up onto a barstool and orders a beer. Once again, the bartender narrows his eyes at him and says, "Hey......... aren't you that piece of string that was in here a little while ago?"
He looks right back at him and says, "No.... I'm a frayed knot!"
Hee hee hee! Get it? A frayed knot/Afraid not? OK... it's better if I tell it to you in real life!

Storm and Jackal, I hope you and everyone else enjoyed my joke! Oh! Or did maybe the very beautiful goat who lives with you - Jasmine - used your Blogger ID and asked!?! We had goats back on the farm where I was born and they were always.... kidding around with me! Hee hee hee!


No Katydids were harmed in the writing and photographing of this blog post. The Katydid in the photograph was moved safely to the lawn, where she made her getaway.


  1. oh I have never seen a Katydid before, how interesting!

    My J says she has read a Katydid, a long time ago - do they have words on them might I bark to you? Sometimes I fear my J is going slightly crazy in her old age! Reading insects and such!!

    I loved your joke about the string, you really did string me along with that one you know Amber!

    My jokes are pretty feeble today I am afrayed.........I was officially charged at the weekend with my offences, I only hope Bailey of The Rumpole can make some headway in preparing my case.

  2. Hey Ammy, sorry for leaving you a little lost on who asked you the question yesterday. It was me Storm. Thanks for sharing the joke. I loved it. I roo roo roo'd with laughter!

    Oh and also very interesting you saw a Katydid today. That's my human's nickname! :)


  3. What a cool bug! Wow, I can't believe I just said that. They are bugs of some kind, right?

    I'm afraid Marge would try to eat it if she saw it.. so the Katydid is definitely safer in your yard!

  4. I don't think I ever even saw a katydid before, so cool. Loved the joke guys and loved Marvin's comments. LOL

  5. Ammy, that is one of your best jokes and I am gonna try and remember how to tell it!

    Happy Laboring Day!


  6. That was the neatest Katydid I ever did see. How neat. I would love to stick my sniffer on that one to see if it smelled like a leaf.


  7. Tee Hee Heee...Ammy you are so very funny!! Thank you for sharing your Katydid and Joke!!


  8. Oh Ammy - you tell simply the funniest jokes - I woofed ar-rooos at your string bar joke (and the afraid not/a frayed knot part esp.)!!! And the katydid is so interesting - especially that you have one at your estate!!! I've never seen one of those out here. She's bootiful! Would you kindly give your bro, Dave a msg? He can play Kong-on-rope with me anytime! In fact, you're all invited to visit - the sooner the bettah!
    Hugs xo

  9. Heehee. You got Mom groaning with one, so it must've been good! Nifty bug thing you've got there. I'm not super excited about bugs, but since that one looks like a leaf, I'll ignore the fact that it is a bug!

    *kissey face*

  10. Wooo Wooo! Vewwwy furney Ammy! i like woo's sense of hooomor.

  11. We got the joke but we were lost on the goat.

  12. HAhaha. That is my kind of joke.

  13. We have never even heard of a Katydid!
    Can we use it as evidence in Marvin's trial?
    Our mum is groaning at your joke - not sure if that is good or bad!
    Like Marvin we reckon you strung us along......

  18. Oh, Ammy. You are just hilarious. How does anypup or human in your family ever get anything done? Aren't they always doubled over in laughter?


  19. Hmm I have never heard of a kaytdid

    Dear Ammy,
    Thanks for the joke! That is clever!

    I like that insect. Did you think of eating it? I considered eating a snail once but Mumma told me not to, so I just licked instead, but she said I shouldn't do that either, unfortunately.

    Mumma says you are more wise than me, and so probably wouldn't have considered eating a Katydid!

  21. I wonder if we have Katydids in my new garden?

  22. Sadly, this joke helps me explain our house. Our hu-dad read the Frayed Knot joke and really groaned. So he was asked, what is so funny.

    With great glee, he told the joke to everyone who would listen.


  23. Wooos Ammy, funny joke! I am glad you told it all this time, maybe you should write a weekly joke post!
    Cool Katydid, I would have eaten it!

  24. cool katydid - we would have pounced on it - oops

    cool joke

  25. Hi, Ammy!
    A Katydid is like a leaf with legs!
    I hope you all had a nice Labor Day!
    Kisses and hugs

  26. You are very funny. That is some good joke telling.

  27. We haven't seen a katydid before - looks very fun to play with! Mommy saw them before when she lived in Kansas a sqazillion years ago. Ammy, your joke was very funny and made us all chuckle!

  28. You are so funny!!!

  29. Hello Ammy
    I don't think that insect was named after Misery who is a Kate. Or it would definitely be called a Katydidn't. haha.

    Mostly didn't keep up to my blog and visit my friends. Sulk sulk
    Anyway you are looking as beautiful as ever with your lovely sunny temperament.

    Pippa x

  30. I have never seen a katydid either... what an interesting looking bug... I wonder if it's crunchy...? BOL! My momster would not allow me to find out... sigh!

    My daddy loved your joke... anything with a bar in it and he's game!!!! BOL!

  31. Ha ha ha! That's a good one, Ammy!

    Wow, that's my first time seeing a Katydid! They look cool!


  32. Hi Ammy,

    Thanks for sharing the katydid. We've never seen that before. Coolness!
    It'a a good thing Storm asked about the joke -- mommy was laughing as she read it and told her sister right away. =)

  34. Oh, Ammy! You are so very funny! Sam really loves your jokes!


  35. Our Katydids look a bit different Mom thinks. (Then again, since she is like kabillion yrs old, it may be her eyes!) Mom has always liked them and made lots of who did? Katydid jokes as a kid...pathetic, but she was a silly kid(shes' a silly adult too! hahahahaha) oops I better be careful.
    As for the joke. hahahahahahaha! You crack us up, Ammy

  36. Oh Ammy, we do love your jokes!!!!

    Woos & a-rooos,
    Star & Jack a-roo

    PS - Katydid was pretty khool too!

  37. Ammy, you're so funny!

    You know what, if that Katydid were here in my yard, I'd have caught it and fed to Louise the Chameleon. She loves leaf hoppers!
