The centipede
A guy decided life would be more fun if he had a pet, so he went to the pet shop and told the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet. After some discussion, he finally bought a centipede which came in a little box.
He decided he would start off by taking his new pet to the pub to have a drink. He asked the centipede in the box, “Would you like to go down to the pub and have a beer?” 
But there was no answer from his new pet. This bothered him a bit, but he waited a few minutes and then asked him again, “How about going to the pub for a drink?” But again, there was no answer from his new pet.
So he waited a few minutes more and then decided to ask him one more time,  “Hey in there! Would you like to go to the pub?”
A little voice came out of the box, “I heard you the first time! I’m putting my shoes on!”
