Chapter 1264: Reconciliation of the Century 5
Zhu Lingling was the last one not to laugh at the jokes, and she was about to tell her own.
Zhu Lingling looked around before calmly speaking, "Once upon a time, there was a king. His favorite pet was an elephant, who became extremely arrogant because the king spoiled it. Nobody dared to mess with it. Finally, when it was time for the king's daughter to find someone to marry, the king thought, 'I'll marry my daughter to whoever can make my elephant shake its head, nod, then sit in the fountain.' However, many young men came to try and ultimately failed. One day, a young beggar showed up and asked the king if he could try. The king thought that he wouldn't succeed so he said yes. The beggar asked the elephant, 'Do you know me?' and the elephant shook its head. Then, he asked, "I heard that you're a badass?" The elephant nodded. At last, he took out a match and lit its tail on fire. The elephant immediately sat in the fountain to put it out.
Everyone was surprised, and the king was the most surprised out of everyone. However, he didn't want to marry the princess to the beggar, so he said, 'That didn't count, I'll marry my daughter to you if you can make my elephant nod first, shake its head, and sit in the fountain.'
In no rush, the beggar walked up to the elephant and asked, 'Bro, do you know me now?' Scared, the elephant nodded.
He then asked, 'Are you still a badass now?' the elephant backed off and shook its head.
At last, he took out a torch and said, 'You know what to do now, right?'
The elephant nodded and immediately sat in the fountain…"
Everyone laughed after Zhu Lingling finished her joke...
Though it wasn't howling laughter, everyone was having fun.
"You all laughed, do I get the money?" Zhu Lingling was happy.
"Yes, yes, yes. You're the best. Take it, you got us this time…" Jiang Xiaowei covered her mouth and laughed.
Although everyone lost money, they had fun...
Besides, one must be really proud to be able to get everyone at this table to take turns telling jokes!
Especially Qin Chu, this was even the first time Huo Mian heard him tell one...
Zhu Lingling put the five thousand yuan in her purse and felt great.
Huo Mian smiled and said, "Lingling got everyone, she did it on purpose. But I just remembered another story."
"What story?" everyone was confused.
Laughing, Huo Mian said, "There was a joke-telling competition in the forest. Every animal took turns telling the story. If even one animal did not laugh, the one telling the joke would be thrown into the river. The first one up was the monkey, he told a great joke that made everyone but the piggy laugh. Thus, he was thrown into the river. The second one up was the giraffe, and the piggy was the only one who didn't laugh. The giraffe ended up in the river as well. The last one up was the cow. He told a super corny joke and nobody laughed, except the piggy. Surprised, the pony asked the piggy why he laughed even though it wasn't funny. Guess what the piggy said?"
Jiang Xiaowei answered, "The piggy must've liked the joke."
Huo Mian shook her head...
"Maybe the piggy and cow are good friends?" Wei Liao guessed.
Huo Mian shook her head again...
"Then why did the piggy laugh, tell us…" Gao Ran curiously asked.
