For years, my mom has tried to remember a joke about a ball peen hammer. All she can remember is “ball peen hammer,” but she’ll say that much and start laughing. I know.
Anyway, in this age of Googling (yes, that’s now a verb: my German friends even use “googeln” as a verb now) I thought I’d try to look up a ball peen hammer joke. This is the only one I could find. Maybe this is it. Maybe not. But here goes:
A magician on stage asks for a volunteer to come up and help him with a trick.
“What’s your name?” Asked the magician.
“Todd” said the young man.
“Ok, Todd, I want you to take this ball peen hammer and hit me squarely between the eyes.”
Looking a little unsure, Todd says “Are you sure?”
The magician nods and says “Don’t worry, I’m a professional.”
“Ok…” says Todd, who then hits the magician between the eyes.
Five years later, in a hospital room, the magician wakes up and says “Tada!!”
