Taking a Shot at Humor

I’m currently taking a graduate course for my GT endorsement (gifted and talented). One of the things we briefly talked about today is that an advanced sense of humor is a sign of giftedness. That reminded me of something AC/DC said this week.

We were comparing two poems in class. They were titled “Rebound” and “Foul Shot.”

“So what do you think these poems are about?” I asked the class, before reading the poems.

Most of the students guessed that it was about basketball, but I could see AC/DC thinking. He poked his finger in the air and said, “Shooting a chicken!”

I couldn’t stop laughing.

Nobody else in the class got it.
