Call a canoe-ber
Me: "I was in Bremerton to get my military ID updated with my dad and we saw some cool battleships."
Boss: "Did you know that there's a ferry that goes from Juneau to Bremerton?"
Me: "I didn't know they had a ferry service for that"
Boss: "Well, now Jeneau"
He's slowly coming around
But it ended up being just a ferry tale.
Because otherwise they'd be non-Ferris!
Oh well, what goes around comes around.
It was a funfair dismissal
'I'm over the hill.'
When you see the ferris wheel.
(Made this joke after a 10 minute argument with my 5 year old niece. She pointed out the ferris wheel and I kept saying "I know... the fair is real.")
So I made her and friends mop the floor and do the dishes.
Driving passed a harbour and my son points out a "boat" which I explained is actually a ferry, he then says to me "Yes daddy it's a ferry big boat..." He's only 4...
It was a fair fairy faire ferry fare.
A tooth ferry.
On a ferris wheel
I remember when I was little, I’m 40 now, my dad and I were at a concession stand at a ferry terminal, probably Edmonds-Kingston. There was a tip jar that had a sign, ‘Tips for college.’ My dad quipped, ‘Don’t go to WSU.’
First day of summer vacation, pack up the family and bring them to Canobie Lake Park, a local amusement park.
We all get on the Ferris Wheel and the listen to the instructions:
Operator: "Please keep you arms and legs in the cart at all times, remain seated until the ride comes to a complete stop and please NO ROCKING!"
Me: "Awwww man, I was just abut to crank some AC/DC"
My family and the family in line behind us: ::audible groans::
Me: So Stephany and I took a ferry across the bay to go eat lunch
Dad: Oh that sounds nice! What was his name?
Dad: The fairy that you took out to lunch
My wife and I were coming home from the grocery store when we passed a funeral procession coming from the opposite direction. The hearse was just hit by another car at the intersection, to which I said, "Boy, talk about DOA!"
Groans were had and I'll be resuming my shuttling duties shortly, ferrying souls to hell with me.
On a ferry to get to my car, a dad and his young son go to the window next to me.
Dad: "Well son, this is as far as the boat is going to dock. We still have a few feet so you are going to have to get out and swim the rest of the way."
Son: "No dad stop you are lying, its too cold to swim."
Dad: "Sorry buddy but I'm standing."
The joke went over the little dudes head while I giggled like a school girl
So when I was a kid, my family and I were in San Francisco on a ferry to visit Alcatraz. We noticed an interesting Seagull that was hovering over our boat with no feet!
Me: Wow look at that seagull, it has no feet! Wonder what happened...
Dad: He must have been defeated...
On a long ferry ride...
Mom: How much longer is this going to take...
Me: (without skipping a beat) I don't know, but so far it has been ferry long
Driving past a street sign indicating "Ferres Boulevard"
I had to comment "Look, Ferris Buellervard!"
My wife gave me the thumbs up. My kids didn't get it.
My wife and I had just left our apartment the other day and were walking down the street towards the ferry stop. It was getting quite cloudy and windy, and wife says:
"Did you check the weather before we left?"
I said "No, I'll check now."
And then I looked directly up at the sky and stood there like that for a second until she got the joke. I had my (smart)phone in my hand at the time, so I'm sure she thought I was about to look it up on that.
