I was babysitting my brother’s cat and he called to check on her

Me: She’s dead Brother: OMG, that’s not how you break news to someone about a beloved pet! Me: Then how? Brother: You say: I am afraid I have some bad news. Your cat escaped, went outside, and started chasing a squirrel. The squirrel ran up onto the roof and the cat gave chase. The squirrel leapt from the roof, and the cat tried to follow, but fell. We rushed her to the vet and they did all they could, but I am afraid she didn’t make it. THAT’S! how you break bad news to someone. Me: I understand, my apologies. Brother: Anyways, how is mom? Me: Well, she was up on the roof, chasing a squirrel…

Almost same as “Mom’s on the roof and we can’t get her down” joke lol


Best I’ve seen here. Thanks !


Great joke… told in the movie _Capricorn One_ by one of the astronauts. One of my fave jokes.


Sorry I don’t get it. Did the mom die?


Pretty sure Bob Newhart was telling that joke in the 70s. Thought he wrote it, but could just be a retelling, even back then.
