One day, Harry and Eric were out enjoying their favorite hobby, which was bungee jumping.
Harry thought to himself, then turned to Eric and said, “you know Eric, we could make a lot of money running our own bungee jumping service down in Mexico.”
Eric thought this was a great idea as well, so they pooled their savings and bought everything they would need to set up a bungee jumpng company: a tower, an elastic cord, insurance, etc.
So, they loaded up their truck and travelled off to Mexico where they began to set up their bungee jumping tower in the square of a small town.
As they were constructing the tower, a crowd began to assemble, as the locals were curious as to what they were doing.
Slowly, more and more people gathered to watch them work and soon it looked like half the population of the town was out there in the square, watching them set up.
When they had finished, there was such a crowd that they thought it would be a good idea to give a demonstration of bungee jumping.
So, both of them climbed up the tower, where Harry got all kitted up ready.
Then off he jumped.
He bounceed at the end of the cord, but when he came back up, Eric noticed that he had a few cuts and scratches.
Unfortunately, Eric wasn’t able to catch him and so he fell again, bounced again and came back up again.
This time Harry was bruised and bleeding.
Again Eric missed him, Hafry fell again and bounced back up.
This time he came back pretty messed up. He had a couple of broken bones and was almost unconscious.
Luckily Eric was able to catch him this time. He asked him, “What happened? Was the cord too long?”
Barely able to speak, Harry gasped, “No, the bungee cord was fine. It was the crowd…”
“The crowd?”, Eric asked, puzzled.
Harry croaked back at him: “WHAT THE HECK IS A PIÑATA?”
