Poems and Puns #3 Cold Weather Kayaking

The couple got into their respective
recreational kayaks and paddled
onto the beautiful, but cold, late fall,
inland lake. After an hour the hus-

band said he was tired and wanted
to head back to shore. Getting up in
years and not as agile as he used to
be, he struggled to get out, tipped

the kayak and fell into the cold water.
The wife, younger and more agile,
tried to make her shivering husband
feel better while he stood in waist

deep water. “Honey I have a pun for
you: two Eskimos sitting in a kayak
were chilly, so they lit a fire in the
craft. To no one’s surprise, it sank,

proving once again that you can’t have
your kayak and heat it too.” He turned
away from her, threw his paddle on-
shore and hurried to the car to get the

dry clothes he forgot to take along. Pull-
ing her kayak out of the water, she
shrugged and thought it was an ap-
propriate pun given the situation.
