“How many titles does this blog have?”
“Sixty-two.”
“Sixty-two?  How do you get 62?”
“Add 4 to the other 58, and you get 62.”
“The other 58?  I only see 4.”
“No, 62.  Just because I have not created the other 58 titles does not mean that they don’t exist.”

How did the chicken cross the road?”
“I dunno.”
“It walked.”

*

How did the creative person cross the road?”
“She walked?”
“No, she sat on the chicken’s back.”

*

“Knock.  Knock.”
“Who’s there?”
“A chicken.”
“A chicken who?”
“A chicken who is wondering whether it can come into your place and rest because it is tired from crossing the road with a creative person on its back.”

*

“What is a creative person’s number one activity?”
“Writing?”
“No.”
“Drawing?”
“No.”
“Dancing?”
“No.”
“What?”
“Procrastinating.”

A creative person walked into a bar carrying a chicken, and the bartender said, “Sorry, but we don’t allow people with pets in here.”
And the creative person said, “Please make an exception.  I promised this chicken that I would buy it a drink if it let me ride on its back while it crossed the road.”
And the bartender thought for a minute.  He realized that the joke would abruptly end if he did not make an exception.
“Okay,” said the bartender, “I’ll let you and your chicken stay.  But I have never had any chickens in here, and I don’t know what chickens drink.”
“No problem,” said the chicken.  “We chickens drink anything except eggnog.”

“Can my inner child play with your inner child?”
“Sure, but please make sure my inner child is home in time for dinner.  Thanks.”

“How many creative types does it take to change a light bulb?”
“How many?”
“Seven.”
“Okay.  So why seven?
“I don’t know.  I’m experiencing a creative block when it comes to the answer.”
“Is there anything you do to help you to get over creative blocks?”
“Yes, I sit on the backs of chickens while they cross the road.”

*

The bartender asked the creative person and the chicken, “What will it be?”
And the creative person said, “I’ll have a glass of green wine, please.”

TO BE CONTINUED.  WATCH FOR A SEQUEL WHICH WILL REVEAL WHAT THE CHICKEN ORDERED, AND WHY IT TAKES  SEVEN  CREATIVE TYPES TO CHANGE A LIGHT BULB.
