A man walks into a London pet shop and says to the owner, “I want to buy a pet, but I don’t want a boring normal pet, no cats, or dogs or budgies. I want something… different.”

The pet shop owner informs him that he has a talking centipede.

“Really?!” says the man “How much?”

The owner informs him that the talking centipede is Β£50. Happy with the unusual offering, the man pays the money and takes his new pet home.

On getting home he lays the matchbox with the centipede in it on the table, opens it and says, “Hello Mr Centipede, fancy going to the pub for a few drinks?”

The centipede says nothing. Figuring it must be tired from the journey, the man decides to leave it for a while and try again later.

An hour later he opens the matchbox and says, “Hello Mr Centipede, fancy going to the pub for a few drinks?”

The centipede again says nothing. Starting to get suspicious, the man decides he will give it one more hour, and if the centipede still doesn’t talk he will take it back to the shop for a refund.

An hour later the man opens the matchbox and again says, “Hello Mr Centipede, fancy going to the pub for a few drinks?”

The centipede says, “I heard you the first time, you moron! I’m putting my shoes on!”
