What's Your Favorite Husky/Cougar Joke?

2012 Apple Cup is 12:30 p.m., Friday, November 23

You hear the one about how many Cougars it takes to screw in a light bulb? How about the time a priest, a rabbi and a Husky walked into a bar?

As we sit down for Thanksgiving dinner this year, Huskies and Cougars will partake in the annual tradition of taking jabs the night before the Apple Cup.

Each year radio and TV stations share their favorite Husky/Cougar jokes. Some are funny. Others aren't. Cats and dawgs. Gotta love it.

What did the Cougar say to the Husky? Want fries with your order?

A Husky and a Cougar were in the woods and they saw some tracks. The Husky said, "These look like deer tracks". The Cougar said, "No, they look more like deer tracks." And while they were arguing, a train hit them.

---I should say, the Cougar said "They look more like elk tracks." Anyway, hope your Thanksgiving goes better than mine has so far.

The best cougar joke is this year's team.

What goes Screech-Vroom, screech-vroom? A Husky driving through a blinking red light.

Why did they cancel the Iditarod? Huskies cant run in the snow

So four cougs come into a tavern, happy and boisterous. They order a round, and then toast "24!" Lather, rinse, repeat. The bartender asks, "So what's with the 24?" One of the cougars explains, "We just completed a jigsaw puzzle. It only took us 24 days, and the box said 6 to 8 years on it!"

What do Huskies and Cougs have in common? They both applied to UW.

Q. What do you call all the pretty people inside Husky Stadium? A. The visitors section

Hey Husky fans -I've got a funny one. What do you call Mike Leach? Undefeated in Apple Cups ... Go Cougs...

A heavy handed management style may make quick changes to an organization, but seldom are these changes long lasting. I use for an example Mark Few's basketball program at Gonzaga. He's even tempered, instills team loyalty and good moral values in his players, while producing winning teams over the long term. This is something Coach Leach can only dream about! What do you call Mike Leach? A winner of one important game. I loved his half time comment about how it felt to participate in the Apple Cup. His answer, "It's great, we'll have to do it again!"

Here's one, for Brent and the WSU fans. Ok, you got your third win of the year in the Apple Cup and bragging rights, but who's going to a bowl game this year and beat two top 10 teams? The Huskies.
Brent Champaco November 24, 2012 at 09:37 AM
I got ya, Tony, you guys are better on paper, bowl game, yada yada. But considering ... -Huskies had won four in a row -Cougars were coming off eight straight losses -Huskies were 11-point favorites in Vegas -Cougars relied on a squad of mostly freshman and sophomores... There's really no other way to say it. The Huskies Dawg'd it. (Dawgin it, btw, means being on the losing end of the biggest comeback in Apple Cup history) So go ahead, have fun in El Paso and try not to lose sleep over this one. Our postseason hopes were dashed early in the season, so this victory is nothing but a sweet, sweet, apple-flavored surprise. So to answer your question about your joke: meh :)

What do Husky fans (myself included) and Mitt Romney have in common? They're both still shellshocked this morning... This one will take a while to get over. If that guy ran that interception back for a TD in OT it would probably be forever known as the greatest finish in Apple Cup history. Even though there really wasn't anything riding on this game, for either side, it will still be remembered for quite some time. ugh... I am not looking forward to all of the abuse I'm going to get on Monday. Refs, penalties... no, huskies just couged, sark'd, coon'd it. Yes, I'm already hearing it... Funny how one game can turn around a team's perception, and now, all of a sudden, the recruiting game may have just shifted.

What's the difference between a Husky and a Coug? The Huskies are drinking WHINE!!!
Derek Young November 24, 2012 at 05:36 PM
Still can't believe it. Field goals will be the death of me. :)

My favorite Husky/Cougar joke? Now it has to be the 2012 Apple Cup. I'll have to go with Brent on this one. In 2012 the Washington State Cougars were a better team than the Washington Huskies. They maintained composure, and didn't make the headwork errors we saw in overtime from UW. During the rain break today, we were out working in the yard when a WSU grad came by, and of course, the conversation turned to the Apple Cup, and how the Cougars...yada yada. Well, Joan and I wanted to get back to yard chores, so to get rid of him, we finally bought a magazine subscription from him.

Nice one Bob: http://shoreline.patch.com/articles/door-to-door-magazine-sellers-catching-eye-of-police-and-attorney-general-s-office http://shoreline.patch.com/articles/veteran-cop-door-to-door-solicitors-without-licenses-often-have-criminal-records

Word has it that NC State is interested in Coach Leach. I suspect that a after a "wintering over" in Pullman, Coach Leach will be whistling Willie Nelson's "On the road again."
Dan November 26, 2012 at 07:18 AM
My final thoughts after experiencing a first class "couged it...." If this is what it feels like to be a Coug, then I have never been more happy to be a Husky.
dexterjibs November 26, 2012 at 08:04 AM
Good win by the Cougs. I hope Mike Leach stays around for a while to build a winning program. I am sure all the Nancy boys will go to the UW to avoid being yelled at while the tough football players will go to WSU.
Bob McCoy November 26, 2012 at 03:46 PM
It's a joke (but you knew that). We don't buy from door-to-door solicitors, whether it be goods, services, or salvation. There is one exception, and that's neighborhood children known to us. I hope Patch Editors aren't going to start a flame war over which school has the most felony convictions. After all, this thread was started as light-hearted banter. Don't make me refer you guys to Patch's Terms of Use: http://www.patch.com/terms
