Need help finishing a joke – Moosehead Christmas Presents "There's been a huge mistake."
My mum tells this joke and she swears it’s the funniest joke ever. However the rest of the family don’t get it. I feel like she has forgotten an element or something. Here is the joke.
2 troubled boys are told that they have to behave or santa won’t bring them gifts. Their behaviour improves and their mum buys them presents. To avoid them finding them pre Christmas she finds them behind a wall mounted moose head.
Come Christmas day, their mum forgets where she hid the gifts (or maybe she died, or was otherwise unable to give them the gifts). The boys decide behaving well isn’t worth it and they turn to a life of crime.
Years later, in a police chase/ shootout situation, the two boys find themselves escaping into the family home. The house is shaken up by the entrance of the police, dislodging the moose head. Gifts come out.
The boys exclaim “There’s been a huge mistake!”
That’s the end of the joke. My mum CACKLED when she tried to retell it. But so far as I can tell it isn’t funny. Does anybody know this joke? Are we missing something? Is my mum just Norm MacDonald?
