Fruit on wheels

As for this tropical fruit: it lived a long and happy life.

When it retired, it faced a quandary: it loved its house, but it also loved to travel.

In the end, it put wheels on the house and traveled all over the place, having many wonderful adventures.

And that’s the story of this old mango’s rolling home.

Addendum a couple days later: it turns out that almost exactly three years before I wrote this post, I came up with a different joke with the same punchline. I forgot that I had done that, until Facebook showed me the old post in its Memories feature.

Also funny: Both times, I failed to remember that the song usually goes “this old man came [or comes] rolling home.” The goes variant isn’t entirely unknown, but came and comes are far more common, going by TSOR.
