A coffin maker was on his way to deliver one of his coffins. In the process, his car broke down. Trying to not be late, he put the coffin on his head and began heading to his destination. A police officer saw him and old him to stop, so he asked, “Hey, what are you carrying and where are you going?” The man replied, “I do not like where I was buried, so I am relocating.” The policeman fainted.

A couple years ago, one night, I was about to propose to my girlfriend when my roommate Joseph barged into the porch out of nowhere, tripped and fell over breaking the glass coffee table with his face. He totally ruined the mood. Now, I didn’t know Joseph THAT well, don’t even remember where he was from, but let’s just say I put my plans on hold to help him through his injuries.

Joseph had gotten a big glass shard in his eye, making him completely blind in that eye. He was walking around with one of those cotton eye pads on his eye for a couple months. Then suddenly, he disappeared along with my girlfriend.

Apparently they’d bonded during the time after his injuries, and eloped together and left me behind without as much as a note. I tried to track them down, but never could.

In conclusion, if it hadn’t been for cotton-eyed Joe, I’d have been married a long time ago. Where did you come from, where did you go? Where did you come from cotton-eyed Joe?
