The ramifications are deep.One night an elephant and an ant made love.
Next morning the ant wakes to find the elephant dead.
"dawg gonnit" the ant says. "One night of passion and now I have to spend the rest of my life digging a grave".

It seems that there is often a multiple of variations of good jokes. They are particularly funny when the punch line is unexpected. Unfortunately for me, when I was in High School we had a two period chemistry lab class once a week; my little group typically was able to complete the experiment during the first period, and then went to the cafeteria for ice cream sandwiches during the break. We then had the whole second period to flirt with the girls, and tell jokes.I heard a similar joke.
