Medium Joke Two

"Blind as a Bat"
Bats, which are black, furry animals that fly in the night, cannot see well. This joke is about two "vampire" bats who, according to stories, like to drink blood! In this story, one bat finds some blood, but he has some trouble. The joke uses "understatement" - the bat explains how he found blood, and his trouble, in a very simple way which leads to a surprise. Enjoy!
Two (1) vampire bats woke up in the middle of the night, (2) thirsty for (3) blood. One said, "Let's fly out of (4) the cave and get some blood." "We're new here," said the second one. "It's (5) dark out, and we don't know where to look. We'd better wait until the other bats go with us." The first bat replied, "Who needs them? I can find some blood somewhere." So, he (6) flew out of the cave.

When he returned, he was (7) covered with blood. The second bat said excitedly, "Where did you get the blood?" The first bat took (8) his buddy to (9) the mouth of the cave. (10) Pointing into the night, he asked, "See that black building over there?" "Yes," the other bat answered. "Well," explained the first bat, "I didn't."

(1) bats that like to drink blood
(2) they want to drink
(3) the red stuff inside all people and animals
(4) a big hole in a mountain, where many bats live
(5) it was night time, so there was no light
(6) past of "fly"
(7) he had blood all over his body and all over his head
(8) his friend
(9) the entrance
(10) showing the way with his finger (or for a bat, with his wing!)
The bat must be in pain, but he explains so calmly. That makes the ending a surprise, which makes it funny.
