My Father The Comedian

For about the last five years, my Dad, also John Young, has been sending me, quote, “stuff you can use on your radio show.”  Despite our political differences, as well as differences in what we both think constitutes humor, some of the stuff he sends actually does make it onto the KUIC Morning Show…the jury is still out on THIS little nugget:


“The Silent Treatment

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper ‘Please wake me at 5:00 AM’ and he left it where he knew she would find it.

The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, the man was about to go and see why his wife hadn’t woken him up, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.   

The paper said, ‘It’s 5:00 AM. Wake up.’

Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.


He may have redeemed himself with this final little ditty:

“God may have created man before woman, but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece.”   🙂
