“I’ve just been offered 8 legs of venison for $100. Is that two deer?”

“Too dear” (too expensive) sounds like “two deer.” Of course, there’s a venison joke.
     
“Silly question. Like the chap who was offered eight legs of venison and asked, ‘Is that two deer?’” was posted on the newsgroup uk.education.staffroom on December 15, 2007. “I’ve just been offered eight legs of venison for $100. Is that two deer?” was printed in the book Two Nuns In A Bath (2009) by Geoff Tibballs. “Just been offered 8 legs of venison for £70. Is that two deer?” was posted on Twitter by The Dad Joke Man on March 18, 2022. Authorship of the joke is unknown.
