Stolen from the internet:-


A man received the following text from his neighbour:
I am SO sorry Bob. I've been riddled with guilt and I have to confess. I have been tapping your wife, day and night when you're not around. In fact, more than you. I'm not getting it at home, but that's no excuse. I can no longer live with the guilt and I hope you will accept my sincerest apology with my promise that it won't happen again.

The man, anguished and betrayed, went into his bedroom, grabbed his gun, and without a word, shot his wife and killed her.

A few moments later, a second text came in:

Damn auto-correct. I meant "wifi", not "wife".

Two wives went on a girlie night out. By the end of the evening they were both well oiled to say the least.

On the way home they were both busting for a wee. They sneaked into a graveyard and relieved themselves. But they had nowt to, er, wipe up with. One decided to use her knickers. The other looked around and spotted a wreath on a grave that had a bit of ribbon attached, so that's what she used.

Next morning one of the husbands rang the other and said, "Not sure the girls should be doing that again. My missus arrived home with no knickers on!"

The other bloke said, "you should worry, mate. My missus came home with a card stuck on her bum that said 'From everyone in the fire brigade. We'll never forget you."

The landlord of a pub had a dog that was well known to all the regulars. One night, as he was ejecting the last, reluctant drinker, he slammed the door on the dog’s tail, chopping it clean off. This caused much comment among the regular customers, and the tail was fixed above the bar for all to see.

Some years later, the dog peacefully passed away in his sleep. He floated up to Doggy Heaven and barked at the pearly gates. St Bernard came to let him in, but noticed his lack of a tail. Rex explained that he'd lost it, but St Bernard said that they only let whole dogs in, so he would have to go back and fetch it.

He floated down to earth again, and got into the pub through the scullery window as usual. He tried to reach the tail over the bar, but couldn't manage it. There was only one thing for it - he would have to get the boss up. He barked until his owner came downstairs in his nightshirt. The landlord was surprised to see his deceased pet sitting there but realised what he was after when he saw him whimpering and looking up at the tail.   He shook his head sadly and said "Well, I'm sorry Rex, but you know the rules - I can’t retail spirits after hours."

A bloke was on his own and well pissed in the pub, but quiet enough for the landlord to ignore him.

Suddenly he calls to the landlord, "Hey, guv, if I can score a bull on your dartboard with just one dart from this seat, will you give me something?"

Well the dartboard was at least thirty feet from the drunk guy's table so the landlord thought well what the hell, I'll humour the daft bugger, so he gave him a dart.   

The bloke swayed around in his seat and chucked the dart aimlessly across the room. But guess what: bullseye!

Well the landlord was nonplussed. He struggled to find something he could give the chap. All he could think of was the tortoise he'd bought earlier that day for his young nephew. So that's what he handed over, still in its box.

A week later the chap was back in the pub, well oiled, sitting in the same seat. He sez to the landlord, "Hey, mate, same again? One dart from here, bullseye, you give me something?"

The landlord thought to himself that there was no way the bloke could repeat that freakish stunt, so he handed the chap a dart. But the feller swayed around, almost falling on the floor, and chucked the dart skyward. But whaddya know: bullseye again!

"OK, give me something," he said to the landlord. "But no food this time, pal. That pie you gave me last week had a stale crust"

Family expressions: "bribe", meaning biscuit, dates back to when Sir was at the learning-to-speak toddler stage; he's always been chronically noisy.* Once when it was getting especially wearing, I was standing in the kitchen, so I reached into the biscuit barrel, drew out a biscuit, and waggled it in front of him, saying: "Can I bribe you to silence?" He solemnly accepted the biscuit, and all was peace for a while.

A day or two later, it was reported that he'd run into the kitchen, pointed at the biscuit barrel, and said "Wants bribe! Wants bribe!"

* He still is (when he isn't sulking), and he's taller than me now.

The dogs ask each other what they're in for.

The first dog says, "I just can't help myself regarding the postman. I got so angry the other day that I bit him. Now I'm being put to sleep."

The second dog says, "Well I bark a lot. I know I'm not supposed to bark all night, but I just can't help myself. So I'm being put to sleep too."

The first two look at the third dog for his story.

"Well, my owner likes to do her housework in the nude," he said. "Yesterday, she bent over to hoover under the settee. I couldn't help myself: I jumped on her from behind and had the best ten minutes of my life!"

The other two dogs looked at him compassionately. "So you're being put to sleep too?"

He strode back into the saloon, ordered another beer then took the gun from his holster and shot a hole in the ceiling. "OK," he shouted threateningly, "This happened in Texas too, and unless ma hoss is back out there by the time I finish this beer I'm a-gonna do what I done in Texas, and I really don't wanna be doing what I done in Texas..."

The terrified locals scurried out and quickly replaced his horse. As he left the saloon, the trembling bartender followed him out and asked him what he'd done in Texas.

The purpose of a joke is not to make you funny but to make other people laugh. I think I have spotted where you are going wrong, Don. You are trying to be funny rather than trying to make people laugh. Eventually you may catch on but I doubt it.

Who wrote the joke is irrelevent. It is whether others find the joke itself is funny is what matters. And, to a certain extent, the telling of it.

I say, I say, I say. What make good comedy?

I don't know wha..

I remember the first time I told my wife that I loved her. We were in a bar at happy hour knocking back 2 for 1 gin and tonics when I laid it on her. She wrote it off with, "Oh, gilly, you're drunk."
I assured her, "It's not just the booze talking. It's also the pot, the coke and the Xanax."

If they need explaining, they are not jokes!

My psychiatrist told me that write letters to those I hate and then set fire to them. It did make me feel better but what should I do with all those letters?

I think it is interesting (rather than infuriating) that there is a person who does not understand what a joke is. Are there others? Is there a literature on the subject?

What *is* a joke? Perhaps Freud can help.

A very rich man was going through his finances, and he said to his wife, "You know, dear, if only you knew how to cook we could sack the chef."

"Well," she replied, "if only you knew how to screw we could sack the chauffeur."
