“Once upon a time, there was an ox…” (oxtail joke)

"Oxtail” is not the same as “ox tale,” but there are jokes.

“my local butcher is a sarcy fucker,i went in there today and asked if he had an oxtail,he said ‘once upon a time there was an ox’ the twat” was posted on Twitter by “I am just me” on July 31, 2009. “In the butcher’s today & a woman comes in and asks for an oxtail. The butcher says ‘Once upon a time, there was an ox...’” was posted on Twitter by Gene Hunt on August 31, 2009.

“Once upon a time there was a lobster...” is a similar joke about lobster tail.


Wikipedia: Oxtail
Oxtail (occasionally spelled ox tail or ox-tail) is the culinary name for the tail of cattle. While the word once meant only the tail of an ox, today it can also refer to the tails of other cattle.
