My Favorite Joke

Mick Jagger went to a party at the Playboy Mansion. It was his first time visiting the debauched dwelling, so he slipped away to explore the house. (You know how rock stars love architecture and home furnishings.) Snooping around upstairs, he came upon a closed door and heard unusual noises on the other side. Curiosity got the best of Mick, so he flung open the door — to find Hugh Hefner and TV's Dennis Weaver in bed together, goin' at it like teenagers. Shocked, Mick shouted, “Hey, Hugh! Get off of McCloud!”

I had to Google Dennis Weaver. I don't think I ever saw the McCloud shows.

That was the most I've laughed at something stupid in a very, very long time. Much thanks.

Mick Jagger ceased to be cool the second I saw whatever that video is he did with David Bowie in the 80s. I think it was Freejack. Wait, no, but that was disappointing, too.

The last time I heard that joke, Mick was still married to Bianca...

In the summer of '89, in the space of about three months, I saw The Who, The Stones and McCartney at stadium gigs around NYC. Of the three, it was only Mick who managed to make an 80,000+ crowd seem like a (relatively) intimate event. For me, that will forever cement him in the top five performers I have ever seen.

MICHAEL K: You poor young ones; you missed some damn fine TV.

MOXIE: Try the veal!

ANANDAMIDE: Nothing like a quick and corny one, is there?

KEITH: I'll take that groan!

FLANNERY ALDEN: It's a joke that never grows old.

BLOG PORTLAND: The laughs over the stupid ones are always the most fun.

PISTOLS AT DAWN: In our Donnie/Marie "I'm a little bit music/I'm a little bit NPR" dance ... I have to admit that I love Mick and Bowie's cover of "Dancing in the Street." I have the 12-inch, and the song nearly appeared on tomorrow's MIx Tape. Let's continue enjoyin' the disagreein'.

FRANK SIMARCO: *snort*

TANYA ESPANYA: Thank you, but credit goes to a classic-rock DJ I used to listen to in the 1980s.

MOUNTJOY: I so agree! I don't think anyone can or ever will command a stage like Sir Micl.

A friend of mine told me about a morning radio show in San Jose over a decade ago that rewrote the Stones songs into something that would be more appropriate with their age.

Such as...

It's my
Winnebago, but I like it


...and there was one that was more in line with your joke...

I said
Hey (hey)
You kids (kids)
Get off of my lawn!

I love corny jokes like that! I wonder if Dennis Weaver had his trademark "McCloud" cowboy hat on during his experience with The Hef.

that's pretty funny!

The version I heard years ago involved a Scottish sheep farmer and the punchline was "Hey! McCloud! Get offa my ewe!"

heh

All right, I laughed aloud at "Donnie/Marie 'I'm a little bit music/I'm a little bit NPR." It's a disagreement I'm willing to lose for my own amusement.

you are so cute, bethylish. hahahahahahha.

I loved the McCloud show!

One of my all-time favorite bartenders, Slim, told me a variation on that one:

What's the difference between Mick Jagger and a Scotsman?

A Scotsman says "Hey, Macleod, get off my ewe!"

Hilarious Beth, you here all week?

The way I heard it, it was David Mick Jagger's wife walking in on Mick and David Bowie and she said, "Hey Mick, get off of David Bowie." I can see why it's been changed. It's not really funny the old way.

That should say just Mick Jagger in the first line. There is no such person as David Mick Jagger. But he would either rock really hard or be a serial killer. You know, 'cause of the three names.

DR. MONKEY: Letterman should be calling any day now …

WRITE PROCRASTINATOR: And yet Mick and Keef are still way cooler than we’ll ever be.

MALCOLM: You know he was. That’s what makes him The Weaver.

NEW AND USED RECORDS: The corny ones are always my faves.

KATROCKET: Now that’s a great punchline!

PISTOLS AT DAWN: I thought you’d appreciate the beauty of that, Pistols.

JEWGIRL: Thanks, doll.

JOHNNY YEN: Bartenders can always trump the blogging girl …

DALE: All week, every week.

BECKEYE: Can I admit that the Mick/David … um … duet is something I would have enjoyed watching? I’d watch the movie of the week about David Mick Jagger and his killing spree.
