My brother sent me this, and it will probably upset some people. So read at your own risk.

The beauty of that joke is that it's the object of itself. I think there's some fancy word for that type of phenomenon.

eh, that joke is old [unlike the referent of the joke...]

It doesn't help that
Spoiler:
pediatric cancer mortality has greatly improved of late

so it doesn't quite work as well now as when it was first thought of as a joke

To borrow a phrase from Bo Burnham, which is also not PG-13:

Spoiler:
Itís offensive and creative, like handicapped porn.

Default Can't believe this hasn't been posted yet.

A rough and tough cowboy finishes his drink at a bar and gets up to leave. A minute later, he comes back in saying with a mean look in his eye "I'm going to sit down and have one more drink, and if my horse isn't back where I left it, I'm gonna have to do what I done in Texas, And I really don't wanna have to do what I done back in Texas!"

True to his word, he sits down, orders another drink, sits in the [silent] bar and finishes his drink. He then gets up and walks outside and sure enough, his horse is back tied up where he left it. As he's just about to ride off, one of the other patrons timidly asks, "mister? What was it you had to do in Texas?" The cowboy gets a far off look in his eyes and says sadly, "I had to walk home."
