The importance of context in a situation became very clear to a library assistant and, on another occasion, two friends who shared one too many sips of moonshine in today's daily joke. Enjoy!
NOT THE BOOK SHE HOPED
Sandy stormed into the library and ceremoniously plonked books on the library assistant's counter and blurted, "I am not happy about what goes on in this so-called library of yours!"

The assistant's eyes widened, and she asked, concerned, "What's the matter, ma'am?" Red in the face from anger, Sandy continued, "I know a library card is not expensive, but I should at least be able to take out a book that is legible!"
Confused, the assistant asked what's wrong, and Sandy explained that the book had no plot and that it featured way too many characters to even make any sense.
Suddenly a smile broke out on the assistant's face, and she said, "Ah! Now we know who it is that accidentally took our phone book!"

LOOKS CAN BE DECEIVING
Brandon and Brody parked at their usual spot overlooking their small town one evening while drinking moonshine when matters got out of hand after they heard tapping on the truck's window.
The two longtime friends looked at each other, and Brody ventured, "Brandon, I think a ghost just tapped on the window!" At first, Brandon wanted to dismiss the sound, but then they heard the tapping again.
Without delay, Brandon started the truck and floored the gas to get as far away from this ghost as quickly as possible, but every few seconds, the tapping repeated. "Go faster! We are not losing the ghost!" Brody urged Brandon on.

Eventually, Brandon was close to panicking and the truck couldn't go any faster. Still, they just couldn't seem to shake the ghost. But then Brody decided to roll down the window, and as he did, a voice said:
"Hey, guys! Do you need help getting out of the mud?"
Do you have a related funny story to share with us? In a related joke to keep the laughter going, a man learned a valuable lesson when their project didn't go according to plan.
The man had a team that had to paint a significant section of newly-completed roads, so when the job took longer than he expected, the reason for the delay was much less what he expected.
