$1.00 for what?

Q: How much did the butcher charge for his venison?
A: A buck!

Explanation: There is so much going on in this joke! To begin with,  a butcher is a person who prepares/ cuts meat so that it is ready to be cooked.  Venison is meat that comes from a deer; a female deer is called a doe and a male deer is called a buck.  A buck is also another name for one U.S. dollar ($1.00).  This joke is funny because it plays on the double meaning of the work “buck.”
