The Universal Popularity

Today in Toastmasters club I was the Joke Master. Since this was my first session and the first role I am playing in Toastmasters, I was quite nervous. I prepared (cooked :) a joke and practiced the presentation twice in home yesterday. I have never felt so nervous for this, as we used crack jokes always from our sophomore days among our friends. Cracking a joke was not at all a big thing, but today it was different.

I had to deliver in the time limit given, and also I was on centre stage where all the people are watching warily at me. Finally I presented today, I was very happy when people really laughed for the joke when I completed it. I have posted the joke below , you can also enjoy the same :)

Frank and Prank walk into a fast food joint one afternoon to get lunch. Frank orders and the cashier gives him his meal. Prank goes up to order and the cashier greets him with "Hello Prank! How are you? Hey everybody! Prank's here!" Everybody in the restaurant comes up and says hello to Prank. After everyone has greeted him, Frank and Prank sit down and begin to eat.

"Prank, you're pretty popular!" says Frank. "I'm the most popular man in the world," says Prank.

"Now Prank," says Frank, you’re pretty popular but you're not the most popular man in the world."

"Oh yeah," Prank replies "I'll bet you a thousand dollars that I'm friends with anybody you can name!"

"That so?" answers Frank, "How about the President of the United States?"

"Let's go!" says Prank.

The two fly to Washington and knock on the front door of the White House. The president answers "Prank! How are you doing? I haven't seen you in ages!" The three go play a round of golf and then leave.

"That was luck!" says Frank, "Two thousand says your not friends with the Queen of England!"

"Let's go!" says Prank.

The two fly to Buckingham Palace and, sure enough, are greeted by the Queen. ''Hello Prank my boy! What have you been up to these days?" They enter the palace and have some tea and leave.

Frustrated, Frank says, "Double or nothing, you don't know the Pope!"

"Benny!" says Prank, "Let's go!"

When they get to the Vatican, Prank instructs Frank to wait outside and Prank will come out on the balcony with his arm around the Pope. After a while, a crowd gathers to hear the Pope speak. And as told by Prank, when the Pope came out, Prank's arm was wrapped around him. Prank looks down from the balcony and see's Frank passed out on the ground. He rushes down and wakes him up.

"Frank! Frank! Wake up!" Frank opens his eyes and says, "Prank. You're the most popular man in the world."

"I told you that, Frank," says Prank, "but you didn't faint when I knew the President! You didn't faint when I knew the Queen!"

"Well I was shocked that you knew the Pope," says Frank. "But I just couldn't take it when the guy next to me tapped me on the shoulder and said "Who's that up there with Prank?"

  1. Really a good joke... at first I thought that it would be a long story and not a joke. But the last dialogue made me laugh... wow!
