I'm bored.

So, while I'm procrastinating, anyone know any horrific puns/jokes I can add to it. The sort that make you fight to quell the urge to find the creator and slap him with a fish for going there. I'm not talking about Christmas Cracker style bad. I'm talking the jokes they thought about putting in the crackers before realising that including them broke several human rights.

The shameful thing is that all of the ones I've included so far I've laughed at.

The king got sick and tired of his jester's gawdawful puns, especially about the king himself. So he forbade his jester to make any more puns about him. Any subject the jester wanted, but not the king. The jester responded, "But sire, the king is not a subject."

That did it! The king condemned his jester to be hanged.

As the jester was standing on the gallows with the noose around his neck, a messenger came from the king, saying that he would be reprieved if, from this moment forward, he never, ever, committed another pun. No more puns and he wouldn't hang.

The jester said, "Well, no noose is good noose!" and died with a silly grin on his face.

Some of the best...or worst... are quick retorts:

once upon a time, my ex-wife & I raised a baby fox..(whole story in itself)...but one day, we found this half-grown fox scooting around on it's bottom, obviously uncomfortable. We grabbed him and investigated and found that he had eaten some chewing gum, which had passed thru without being digested, and was thoroughly matted in the hair around his anus...*sigh*...so, we trimmed, pulled, and cleaned...etc...and that evening, we told the story to my friend Dwain....he listened to the story politely as we raved about POOR fox, chewing gum, clean up...etc...then remarked knowingly,

"so....chicled the shit out of him huh?"

(not sure how to spell that..chicle is easy, but since the verb form doesn't really exist, .....anyway, it SOUNDS good)..(chickled??)

Acupuncture is a jab well done.

A backwards poet writes inverse.

A boiled egg in the morning is hard to beat.

Those who jump off a Paris bridge are in Seine.

With her marriage she got a new name and a dress.

A chicken crossing the road is poultry in motion.

When a clock is hungry, it goes back four seconds.

If you don't pay your exorcist you get repossessed.

Bakers trade bread recipes on a knead to know basis.

You feel stuck with your debt if you can't budge it.

Local Area Network in Australia: the LAN down under.

He had a photographic memory that was never developed.

What's the definition of a will? (It's a dead giveaway).

She had a boyfriend with a wooden leg, but she broke it off.

Once you've seen one shopping center you've seen a mall.

A bicycle can't stand on its own because it is two-tired.

He often broke into song because he couldn't find the key.

A lot of money is tainted. It taint yours and it taint mine.

Marathon runners with bad footwear suffer the agony of defeat.

Those who get too big for their britches will be exposed in the end.

When an actress saw her first strands of gray hair she thought she'd dye.

In democracy it's your vote that counts. In feudalism it's your count that votes.

The short fortune-teller who escaped from prison was a small medium at large.

Now aren't you sorry you asked?

Chapman and Keats went on tour with a pair of performing bears. Keats refused to believe they were tame and harmless, but consented to feed them. Chapman found Keats injecting a local anesthetic into the bears. They were numb but upright. "Chapman flew into a feverish temper and demanded the reason for this brutal and cynical outrage. 'There's safety in numb bears,' Keats said."

Many years ago, Gloria and I used to go to the disco most Friday nights, where we got on chatting terms with a couple called Liz and Dave. Both Gloria and Liz were slightly overweight, and used to swap various dieting tips between dances. Sadly, Dave died, so we didn't see Liz at the disco for some weeks, but when we next saw her, she had lost quite a bit of weight. I assumed that this was caused by grief, stress, etc, but Gloria told me later that shortly after Dave's death, Liz had tried a variant of the Atkins diet. This, apparently involved eating nothing but pork, until you had consumed at least a ton of the stuff. Gloria was so impressed that she tried it, and it worked. And that is -how Liz, the widow of our discotheque, made Gloria slimmer by this ton of pork.

One of the other judges asked Dudley (still in character) what he thought of it so far ... (no Morecambe & Wise quotes please!) ...


And rising, Arthur answered, from the bar.
The old order changeth, yielding place to new.
And one good costume can corrupt the world ..."
