I love an old joke that’s new to me. I even love an old joke that I’ve heard 100 times before. Anyway, this is the throwback fashion joke my friend Thelma told me recently:
A woman is wearing a pencil skirt that is so tight she can’t get up the steps on the bus. She tries hiking it up, to no avail. So she tries unzipping the back zipper a little. No luck, so she unzips the back zipper a little more. Nothing. Then a man lifts her up and places her on the bus. She says, “Sir! I don’t appreciate it when strangers handle my body!”
He replies, “Anyone who has unzipped my fly twice is not a stranger!”
Is it wrong of me to imagine the gentleman in the joke has something in common with the Rolling Stones’s Sticky Fingers album-cover model?
