Two Seals

The History

"Two Seals" is, by far, the funniest joke that ever existed. At its utterance, anyone within hearing distance will involuntarily burst into guffaws, and no Duke East comedian's repertoire is complete without it. It's a classic TIP tradition, and of equal merit as WaSW or Blister in the Sun.

At the 2004 Term II Talent Show, numerous fourth years recited it at the podium in different languages in between acts, retaining the English words "Crisco" and "typewriter" (see below) for better recognition and hilarity. They increased in intelligibility towards the end of the show, culminating in Spanish, Pig Latin, and at the very end, English.

Since then numerous other TiPsters have made an effort to translate Two Seals into other languages, including Latin, Icelandic, Danish, and even Quenya (the "high-elven" language created by J.R.R. Tolkien).

As of late, the joke has been frequently told by former-TA, current-APA, and general all around TIP staffer extraordinaire Will Harris. It seems that in his capacity as the go-to emcee for any event that needs emceeing, Will has decided that any length of silence greater than 10 seconds should be filled with the Two Seals joke. Similarly, if more filler is needed, Will is known to voice his logic for why ninjas are superior to pirates.

The Original

Two seals are sitting in a bathtub full of waaaaarm Crisco. One seal turns to the other and says "Hey, can you pass the soap?" to which the other replies, "what do I look like, a TYPEWRITER?"

Translations

French

Si, il y avait deux phoques, assis dans un baignoire de Crisco chaud. Un phoque a dit à l'autre, «Hé, pourriez-vous me donner du savon?» Dont l'autre phoque a répondu, «Qu'est-ce que je me semble? Une machine à écrire??»

Icelandic
