A man buys a talking centipede for $5000, and takes it home in a small box.
After 30 minutes, he opens the box and says “Would you like to go for a pint?”.
Silence; the centipede doesn’t answer. Raising his voice, the man repeats his question, but still no reply.
Becoming agitated, and starting to think he has been conned, he leans forward and loudly shouts the question into the box.
The centipede sticks his head out of the box and angrily shouts back at the man; “I heard you the first time you impatient bastard, I’m putting on my fucking shoes.”
