Just because it's funny
" a lynx. a supped up wildcat". I love Jerry Clowers. What a story teller! I would all to go youtube it and listen to his routines. Some of my favorites are the "banana" made me go stone cold blind and Marcelle Ledbetter's lumber truck.
"Shoot up here amongst us... one of us has gosta have some relief! "
"To this day, I don't even each so much as a cookie, without calling momma and asking if it's alright!"
Many hours spent listening to Jerry. Great story teller.
Is Jerry Clower the guy who tells the joke about the piccolo player ?
He was funny I met him once in Jackson Ms during a family reunion.He attended Ms State where he played football.Lewis
My favorite Jerry Clower story was when his uncle asked him to kill “ Della” the mule lol....oh and the monkey that shot the lieing dog...Well heck all of them are funny lol
Jerry Clower once said "I don't tell funny stories, I tell stories funny." He was indeed a great story teller.
SO many good ones from him! "Marcel's Talking Chain Saw", "The Chauffeur And The Professor"....the list goes on and on!
"If ahm lyin' ahm dyin'!"
“Would ya’ll like to buy a possum?”
I memorized the "supped up wildcat" one and did it Jerry Clower style for an Oral Interpretation in high school.
