2663: "Tetherball Configurations"

Post by ratammer »

Title text: Ground-pole-ball-pole can be fun if you shake the first pole to get the second one whipping around dangerously, but the ball at the joint gets torn apart pretty fast.

Why is the correct one at the end? That's not how punchlines work! Why not put them in reverse order?

That first one the has the rope attached to the ball and the ground. I recall playing something called Squareball and we didn't even need the rope. Ball and the ground, no rope no pole. I also recall playgrounds where there was just the Ground and a pole, no rope no ball. Those were the worst playgrounds.
