Poems and Puns #6 The Christmas Baby

Christi, whose birthday is December
25, early on waxed philosophical
about it realizing that she always
would be jipped out of a gift or two,

“How do you compete with Jesus for
a birthday?” Her husband suggested
that they move the celebration of
her birth to June 25 but everyone

including Chris and her husband
forgot. Relegated to a destiny of
fewer birthday presents than if she
had had the fortune of having been

born on a different day in a differ-
ent month, she just shrugged her
shoulders. Her husband not want-
ing her to feel bad as Christmas ap-

proached, told her the following pun:
A group of chess enthusiasts checked
into a hotel and were standing in the
lobby discussing their recent tourn-

ament victories. After about an hour,
the manager came out of the office
and asked them to disperse. “But
why?” they asked, as they moved off.

“Because,” he said, “I can’t stand
chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer.”
With that she started to cry. Her
husband thought to himself, That

wasn’t the intended outcome. He
then rushed off to the store to buy
her a few presents. She thought,
That was the intended outcome.
