This week on A Prairie Home Companion, our staff has been scraping the bottom of the joke barrel once again and coming up with a lot of painful splinters for Saturday's Joke Show, so we're asking our listeners to dig deep and send us some worthy new candidates. We don't do cute on the Joke Show. We don't do stand-up, as such. We don't do long-winded story jokes. We do classic jokes. Clean, but just barely. So send in your best stuff right now, today, and there may be some free stuff for you if we use your jokes on the air. Just remember, if we come up short, we may have to go with the nuclear option, where Garrison sings two hours of long-forgotten vaudeville classics, accompanied only by a harmonica and an old basset hound. It's up to you.
