A single guy decided life would be more fun if he had a pet.
So he went to the pet store and told the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet.
After some discussion, he finally bought a talking centipede, which came in a little white box that acted as its house.
He took the box back home, found a good spot for it, and decided he would start off by taking his new pet to the pub for a drink with him.
So he asked the centipede in the box, “Would you like to go down the pub with me today? We will have a good time.”
But there was no answer from his new pet.
This bothered him a bit, but he waited a few minutes and then asked again, “How about going down to the pub with me?”
But, again, there was no answer from his new friend and pet. So he waited a few more minutes, thinking about the situation.
The guy decided to invite the centipede one last time.
This time he put his face up against the centipede’s box and shouted, “Hey, in there! Would you like to go to the pub with me?”
This time, a little voice came out of the box, “I heard you the first time! I’m putting my shoes on!”
