I recently heard a poem by a student

"I dig, you dig, he digs, she digs, they dig, we dig."

If you don't understand it, it's ok, it's very ....DEEP.

You must be a stick in the mud not to like that joke.

Those side conversations just muddy everything up.

Your concerns are groundless. If you dig deeper you will both unearth the solution.

When I first heard that joke, I just couldn't help myself. My laughter was of seismic proportions.

Hi GreatSandy

It's a pun on the word "deep". It can be used to mean that it's very philosophical, but also to refer to "deep" as in "deep under the earth".

You can see the rest of us followed by even more puns with words related to dirt and mud.
