Crap Joke of the Day™ welcomes you, friend, to Thursday afternoon.
As you’ll no doubt know, the late great magician and performer Harry Houdini would have celebrated his birthday today, had he lived to 137. Sadly Erik Weisz – for that that was his real name – didn’t make it past 52. His light burns no less bright.
Erik started his career in the sideshows and circuses of Wisconsin, dazzling crowds with first card tricks and then, most famously, escape acts. Surely the wonderful career that followed would have extended further had a J. Gordon Whitehead not put Weisz’s claim that blows to his upper body could not harm him to the test. Apparently he was incapable of escaping a ruptured appendix.
So Houdini wasn’t as magic as he thought. But what is magic, I hear you cry? Well, Crap Joke of the Day™, of course. And fittingly, today’s has a circus theme. Enjoy, rate it, and tell your friends – it’s for the best.
A clown got sacked from his job.
He’s suing the Circus for funfair dismissal.
Another one of those, same time tomorrow.
