Hat Trick

Q: What did one hat say to the other?
A: You stay here.  I’m going on ahead!

Explanation: “To go on ahead” or “to go ahead” means to move forward to do something while leaving the other person behind.

That is different from a hat going on a head, which is when a person puts a hat on his or her head.  Hats, of course, go on your head.

This joke is funny because it plays with the word ahead which sounds like a head.  I like this one because it is easy to remember.  (A hat trick, by the way, is when a player scores three goals in one game, such as hockey.)
