- A Bad Spider Joke
- (as told to me by Alexander Nitoussov,
- A group of scientists is perfoming a series of experiments
on a spider. They cut one leg off the spider and tell it to crawl.
The spider crawls. Next they cut a second leg off the spider.
"Crawl!" they command. The spider crawls. They cut
off a third leg. "Crawl!" The spider crawls. They continue
cutting the legs off the spider one at a time and commanding
it to crawl. Each time, with one leg less, the poor spider crawls.
Finally, they cut the eighth leg off the spider and tell it to
crawl. The spider does not respond. The one scientist says to
the other, "Make a note, when we cut off the eighth leg,
the spider became deaf.".
