A joke, usually long, with a silly premise, often involving talking animals. Named for a classic joke involving a lost shaggy dog. Punch line: "Not that shaggy!"
The joke ended with "and that goes for your cat, too!" Just another shaggy dog story.

A long, convoluted anecdote, often told simply to result in a sentence that consists almost entirely of puns.

One classic shaggy dog story involves a man named Hugh who is out to stop a couple of monks from growing flowers for money:

"Remember Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars."
