Well, laughter is the best medicine, and people often love listening to jokes to have some good fun.

Who told you joke?
Here I am going to share a funny incident narrated by my cousin, which is as good as any funny joke.

When and Where?
I vividly remember that my cousin Simran was visiting us during the summer holidays, and one day we were sitting in a restaurant enjoying some snacks while having food.

What the joke was?
He shared this funny incident with me. He said he was having big trouble with his friends, who are very stingy by nature. They are never willing to spend a penny, always make him spend money on their behalf, and never pay him back in any circumstance.

So, Simran decided to teach his friends a lesson, and that one day, he called and invited all his friends to reach a restaurant by 6 pm where he is going to throw a party.

Why did you find it interesting?
Actually, he pretended to throw a party, but his intention was something else. Now, sharp at 6 pm, all the friend’s arrived, and this was the time when Simran said to all that you could order anything you wanted from the menu, and In greed, they ordered the most expensive food items on the menu and In fact, ordered more than what they could eat.

My cousin was observing all this, and when the food was served, he made an excuse to use the washroom, and from there, he eloped and switched off his phone.

Now, his friends were trapped at this restaurant because they had no money to pay. The restaurant owner detained them and made them clean the restaurant and dishes till midnight. They had a terrible experience at the restaurant, but they were truly sorry for their behaviour to Simran as well.

Listening to this incident, I started laughing hysterically, and everyone was staring at me in the restaurant. Somehow I controlled my laughter that day, but now every time I recall that incident, I start laughing again.

Overall, it was one funny incident or a joke that I heard that made me laugh a lot.
