The Tiresome Raccoon

A big raccoon was hit by a car just outside of our neighborhood. It’s laying lifeless in the street.

Laura: Look at the size of that raccoon! It looks more like a dog.

Me: Do you know what a male raccoon is called?

Laura: Nope.

Me: It’s the same name as a male bear.

Laura: I don’t know.

Me: It’s what nature does to a vacuum.

Laura: What are you talking about? Just tell me.

Me: A boar, Laura. It’s a boar. As in ‘nature abhors a vacuum.’

Laura: You should have just given me the hint, “What Aaron is to Laura when he asks these silly riddles.”

Me: I don’t get it.

Laura: A bore.

Me: Very funny.

Laura: That was a pretty good one, wasn’t i!
