Penguin Joke Contest In Brooklyn

In keeping with our penguins in Brooklyn theme this is from the blog of one of my favorite old watering holes.  The Life Cafe in beautiful Bushwick
Make our Penguin Laugh and Win a Mini Iceburg

Have you noticed the penguin standing on our bar-shelf at Life Café Bushwick.

I will let you into a secret, he’s a sad Penguin, so sad he became frozen.

In fact, he’s a Prince amongst Penguins, (we call him Prince) and his place in the Kingdom of Ice is waiting for him if only we can cheer him up and wake him from his stupor!

I mean he should be out chasing sardines across the oceans, not standing on a shelf in a bar in Bushwick for Gods sake!

That’s why we came up with the idea for the best, ‘A Penguin walks into a Bar’ joke competition.

Following the monthly selection of best contenders for Best Penguin Joke, by the Life Café panel of judges, we shall read the jokes out loud to the Prince in a secret late night ceremony, in the hopes of cheering the little guy up.

So go on, cheer up a Penguin today, write out your joke on a comments card with your email address and post it in the box.

Think how good you will feel if you make our penguin chuckle! Even if the jokes don’t wake him up, but make us laugh, we’ll award you a mini iceberg floating in a sea of your liquid choice!

Here’s this month’s winner

By Phil J (who does not claim originality for this, but nevertheless, well done Phil!)

A Penguin walks into a bar and asks the bartender,

“Do you have any plums?” The bartender says, “Sorry we don’t have any plums”. The penguin walks out of the bar.

The next day the same Penguin walks in and to the bartenders’ surprise asks him again,

“Do you have any plums?”

The bartender looks at the penguin and says,

“I told you yesterday we don’t have any plums here.”

And the penguin walks out of the bar.

The next day, the bartender sees the penguin walk into the bar and stops him

Before he can say anything and says,

“If you ask me if we have any plums, I’m going to nail your beak to the wall!”

The penguin then says,

“Do you have any nails?”

To which the irate bartender replies,


Then the penguin asks,

“Do you have any plums?”
