Willie Lump Lump and the Mongoose – A cute joke from the old “Red Skelton Show”
Many years ago, Red Skelton told the following joke using his inebriate character, Willie Lump-Lump.
Willie explained to the young lady (Shirley Mitchell), “I keep a mongoose in my coat pocket. That way, when I go home after drinking, and there are snakes all over the lawn of my yard, I let the mongoose loose and he kills them all, so it’s safe for me to enter the house.”
The young woman sadly tried to explain, “I’ve got news for you, Mr. Lump Lump, those snakes are imaginary!”
Willie Lump Lump replied, “I’ve got news for you, so is the mongoose!”
