Brad Wall

Today at work, I rushed to catch an elevator.  I succeeded, and entered an elevator full of visitors to the hospital.  Just as the doors closed, a lady in the back said, "The last person on the elevator must tell a joke."

I froze.  I racked my brain, trying to think of a(n) [appropriate] joke for the elevator full of people, ranging in ages from about 20-70.  At a total loss for anything clever to say, I just blurted out, "Brad Wall."

After a short pause, the entire elevator burst out laughing.  All but one guy (the oldest one).  He did not think I was funny at all, and he just quietly said, "I love that man."

At that moment the doors opened and I hustled out of there as fast as possible.

I thought it was funny.
