51 Days



A bartender is sitting behind the bar on a typical day
when the door bursts open and in come four exuberant

They come up to the bar, order five bottles of champagne
and ten glasses, take their order over and sit down at a
large table. The corks are popped, the glasses are
filled and they begin toasting and chanting. 51 days,
51 days, 51 days

Soon, three more blondes arrive, take up their drinks
and the chanting grows. 51 days, 51 days, 51 days.
Two more blondes show up and soon their voices are
joined in raising the roof. 51 days, 51 days, 51 days.

Finally, the tenth blonde comes in with a picture
under her arm. She walks over to the table, sets the
picture in the middle and the table erupts. Up jump
the others, they begin dancing around the table,
exchanging high fives, all the while chanting 51 days,
51 days, 51 days.

The bartender can't contain his curiosity any longer,
so he walks over to the table. There in the center is
a beautifullly framed child's puzzle of the "Cookie Monster."

When the frenzy dies down a little bit, the bartender
asks one of the blondes. "What's all the chanting and
celebration about?"

The blonde who brought in the picture pipes up, "Everyone
thinks that blondes are dumb and they make fun of us,
so we decided to set the record straight. Ten of us got
together, bought that puzzle and put it together. The
side of the box said 2-4 years, but we put it together in
51 days'".
