Dumb Mikey and the Snow Plow Joke

Last winter it was snowing heavily and blowing to the point that visibility was almost zero when Mikey left his office and was going home. He made his way to his car and wondered how he was going to make it home. He sat in his car while it warmed up and thought about his situation. Then finally remembered his mommy’s advice that if he got caught in a blizzard he should wait for a snow plow to come by and follow it. That way he would not get stuck in a snow drift. This made him feel much better and sure enough in a little while, a snowplow went by and he started to follow it.

As he followed the snowplow, he was feeling very smug as they continued and he was not having any problem with the blizzard conditions. After quite some time had passed, he was somewhat surprised when the snowplow stopped and the driver got out and came back to his car and signaled for him to roll down his window. The snowplow driver wanted to know if Mikey was all right as he had been following him for a long time. Mikey said that he was fine and told him of his mommy’s advice to follow a snowplow when caught in a blizzard. The driver replied that it was OK with him and he could continue if Mikey wanted but he was done with the Wal-Mart parking lot and was going over to K-Mart next.

Dumb Mikey is a semi-fictional character and these jokes have appeared on our NOVA-Antiques Newsletter since June 2004. NOVA-Antiques Newsletter has about 2500 subscribers and so many of them have told us how much they loved the Dumb Mikey jokes that we decided to make a page solely for them. The people that love the Dumb Mikey jokes are mostly the people who think they know who Dumb Mikey really is. Not to our surprise, nobody really knew who Dumb Mikey really was until this year . . .
