Blast. I don't have time to tell it properly, you'll have to take the 
bare bones. So to speak. But basically it's a "punctuation counts/I'm 
sorry, I'll read that again" joke.

*little old spinster lady takes two recently deceased pets of the same 
species, usually also of the same sex, usually monkeys, to the 
taxidermist, explaining that they were very fond of one another in life 
and she'd like them stuffed for display together*

Taxidermist, finishing up transaction:

"How do you want them mounted?"
