The best Maine / Aroostook County joke I’ve ever heard


I am presently volunteering as a Senior Facilitator at Maine Youth Leadership. I overheard one of the students from The County offer the following anecdote. It might be the oldest joke in the Maine book, but I’d never heard it and have been laughing since I heard it.

“Someone asked me at what age a deer turns into a moose, and I told him, ‘When it’s old enough to start riding to school.’”
