From the Daily News:
Here's an antidote to economic angst that won't break the bank: Jason the Joke Guy from Astoria, Queens, who tells jokes for a dollar in Central Park.
The 40-by-30-inch sign he carries proclaims, "Laughter Guaranteed."
He even offers refunds.
What do you call Chewbacca when he's working with clay?
"Harry Potter," Jason Schneider, 26, quipped for tourists from Pittsburgh who tossed a greenback into his neon green money bucket over Labor Day weekend. They laughed.
Who did the promiscuous cow sleep with?
"Udderly everyone," he zinged. Another laugh.
What do you call a seeing-eye cow? "Hamburger helper," he added. They laughed again.
The al fresco funnyman is at the park almost every day. He stands on the tree-shaded, midpark Mall by a bench with a plaque that reads: "When there is no wind, row," a saying of author George Plimpton's.
"That's exactly what I'm doing because I couldn't get a job," Schneider said during down time.
Can't imagine why. Reminds me of a frequent punny commenter on this site.
