So ever since Murdoc was a little kid, he’s made a point to tell a particular joke on November 11th. I think I got out of a joke book in the class library in 2nd grade, but I can’t remember for sure.
This guy goes up to his buddy and asks how he did at the race track.
“Oh, man!” says the buddy. “I had the hottest tip ever! A horse named ‘Elevener’ was running in the eleventh race at 11:00 am on November 11th. He was number eleven and he had won 11 races. The odds were 11:1. So I put $11,011 on him.”
“Wow!” says the guy. “That’s crazy! Did he win?”
“No,” replied the buddy. “He finished eleventh.”
