Surrealism

I can’t believe I’ve never heard this joke before today, but it makes me smile:

Two penguins are sitting on an ice floe, drifting helplessly north into warmer waters. The penguins are quite fond of each other, but they don’t speak English very well. Suddenly, cra-a-a-a-a-ck, the ice floe splits in two, right between the penguins. As they drift apart, one penguin sadly waves a flipper and calls out, “Chocolate milk!”.

Happy Monday!

There's nothing to get - the humour is in the set-up, all the details like the penguins being fond of each other but not being very good at speaking English, and then the complete absence of a punchline.

Speaking of oldies-but-goldies:

Two parrots are sitting on a perch. One says, "Can you smell fish?"
