"Oh my God, look at me!" she wailed. Wrinkles everywhere, bags under my eyes, bat's wings, my arse looks like a burst bag of broad beans and my tits are nearly touching the floor! For God's sake cheer me up and say something nice about me!"

"Well," he said, "your eyesight is perfect..."

Little girl is on a train ride with her grandad.

She looks out of the window and says, "Look, grandad, moo-cows!"

"Yes, very nice," says grandad, "but that's not very grown up, is it? In future, just say 'cows!'"

"Sorry, grandad..."

A little while later she looks out of the window and says, "Look, grandad, baa-lambs!"

"Yes, very nice," says grandad, "but that's not very grown up either, is it! In future, just say 'lambs!'"

"Sorry, grandad..."

The teacher is telling her class of six-year-olds the bible story of Adam and Eve.

"Now do you remember from last time who I told you was the very first man?"

After a slight pause, little Jimmy's hand shot up, "Adam, Miss!"

Very good, Jimmy! Now can anyone tell me the name of the very first woman?"

Silence...

"Come along now! I'll give you a clue. Think of the serpent..."

Silence...

"OK, another clue. Someone must remember her name...Think of the apple..."

Well, if we're into Bible stories, and more or less seasonal ones at that:

Teacher asks her class to draw a picture illustrating some aspect of the Nativity story, and encourages them to use their imaginations rather than just copy the usual Christmas-card stuff. So one little girl draws an aeroplane, with four passengers.

"That's interesting dear, what part of the Christmas story is that?"
"Please Miss, it's the Flight Into Egypt."
"Ah. In that case, I think I can guess who the people are, but you tell me anyway."
"Well, there's Mary and Joseph with the baby Jesus, and up in front, that's Pontius the Pilot."

A teacher of religious studies asks his class, “Where is Jesus today?”

Little Jimmy replies, “He’s in heaven.”

Little Mary replies, “He’s in my heart.”

Little Johnny says, “He’s in the bathroom!”

The teacher says, “In the bathroom? What a strange place for Jesus to be! What makes you think that?”

Little Johnny says, “Well, every morning my dad gets up, bangs on the bathroom door, and yells, “Jesus Christ, are you still in there!?”

Magic works in mysterious ways;
"Magic mirror on the door
Make my penis touch the floor..."

It worked: his legs dropped off...A guy goes into this bar, sits down and orders a drink.
While waiting, he sees a guy sitting at the bar who has a very big muscular body but a little tiny head.
So, he asks the guy, "How is it that you have such a huge body and a small head?"
The guy replied, "I was walking along the beach one day and I came across this bottle buried halfway in the sand. So I picked it up, brushed away the sand, and out popped this fine female genie. She said she would grant me three wishes for releasing her."
"For my first wish, I asked for ten-million dollars, and POOF right there on the sand was $10,000,00."
"For my second wish, I asked for a luxury yacht, and POOF right there on the ocean was a 90-foot yacht."
"Finally for my third wish, I asked to have sex with the genie, but she said that genies were not allowed to indulge in carnal activities."
So, I said, "c'mon, how about a little head?"

The Police have recently found a large number of dead crows on Route 66.. A Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows and confirmed that the cause of death appeared to be from vehicular impacts. However, during analysis it was noted that varying colours of paints appeared on the bird's beaks and claws.?By analysing these paint residues it was found that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with motorbikes, while only 2% were killed by cars.?The investigators then called an Ornithological Behaviourist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of motorbike kills versus car kills. The Ornithological Behaviourist quickly concluded that when crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow to warn of danger.?They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout "Cah", not a single one could shout "bike"

A doctor who was also a drinking buddy of mine sailed through the waiting room, and spotting me sitting there, called out airily at the top of his voice, "Oh hi, Steve, I didn't realise that the impotence clinic was running today!" and promptly disappeared through a side door, leaving me with a bunch of other patients staring at me curiously...

A man is looking in a catalogue for a costume for a fancy dress party. He finds the perfect one - Adam - and sends off his order. After a few days, he receives a small fig leaf but sends it back with a note:
"Dear sirs,
       Please send me a larger fig leaf. This one
is not big enough to cover my requirements.
Yours sincerely, "

He receives the replacement but, again, returns it saying that it was not large enough to cover his requirements.

The same thing occurred with the large, XL and XXL sizes. Each time he returned it as not being large enough to cover his requirements.

Eventually, the supplier wrote to him offering him a custom made, quadruple extra large size, adding
"This is the largest size we are able to make. If this does not suffice, we suggest that you stick your requirements in your ear and go as a petrol pump."

Bloke starts a new job looking after a chipping machine in a potato processing plant. The gaffer tells him that it often jams but he must never put his arm in to free it.

Of course on the first day it jams and he sticks his arm in to free it with subsequent loss of limb. His co-workers pack the arm in a plastic bag and rush him to the hospital. Next day, arm stitched back on, he is in work bright and early. The manager reminds him that he must never put his arm in so when it next jams he tries freeing the blades by stamping on the blockage.

Surprise, surprise. He loses his leg. As before, his work mates pack the leg in ice in a plastic bag and rush him to hospital again. Next morning he astounds everyone by waltzing in as if nothing had happened. The gaffer, getting a bit wiser, tells him to never put a limb in the machine. At the next jam he heeds the advice and tries to headbutt the blockage to force it through. Well, as you can imagine, he is decapitated so his pals put his head on ice in a plastic bag and take him to hospital.

The next day he doesn't turn up so the boss nips round to the hospital to find that the poor chap had suffocated...

The snake then stood on his tail end and was awarded a red and brown (total five points) as it was not so difficult. The game progressed until the elephant was seven points in front. The snake said that it had been a great game but he had to go and could he have one last chance of winning by sliding up elephants trunk and out of his rear end for a red and black (eight points).

This a joke thread. Just a reminder.


Still, followimng the principle of "At least add a joke to your postings about how people aren't posting jokes!"

It was the birds versus insects football match. Within 5 minutes the birds scored their first goal. Another quarter of an hour saw two more goals and by half time, the insects were down 5 - nil. The second half saw the birds add yet another two goals. With 15 minutes to go, the insects made a substitution. A beetle came off and the centipede came on. Within a minute he had scored. Then another and another. Like a tornado, he moved across the pitch scoring goal after goal. By the final whistle, the insects had won 10 - 7.

After the match, the two coaches were talking. The birds coach said what fantastic player the centipede was and asked his opposite number why he hadn't been brought on earlier.

"Oh, he's a fantastic player, alright," said the insect coach, "but it takes him that long to get his boots on".

Well I've posted so many quality jokes in this thread, Doug (count 'em!), that I feel I might be permitted a slight, benign diversion in order to address Mrrzy's excellent though off-topic point about football. I can only conclude from your curmudgeonly intervention that you must be a Man U fan. Very sad.

And that last joke of yours is so old that I'm guessing that it was first told to Methuselah by Noah...

"A man drives down a country lane and runs over a cockerel. He knocks at a nearby farmhouse door and a woman answers.

"'I appear to have killed your cockerel,' he says. 'I'd like to replace it.' The woman replies: 'Please yourself - the hens are round the back.'"

Farmer Jack once lived on a quiet rural highway but as time went by,
the traffic slowly built up and eventually got so heavy and so fast
that his free range chickens were being run over, at a rate of three
to six a week.
So Farmer Jack called the local police station to complain, "You've
got to do something about all these people driving so fast and killing
all my chickens," he said to the local police officer.
"What do you want me to do?" asked the policeman.
"I don't care, just do something about those crazy drivers!"
So the next day the policeman had the Council erect a sign that said:
SCHOOL CROSSING
Three days later Farmer Jack called the policeman and said, "You've
still got to do something about these drivers. The ‘school crossing'
sign seems to make them go even faster!"
So again, they put up a new sign: SLOW: CHILDREN AT PLAY .
That really sped them up. So Farmer Jack called and said, "Your signs
are no good. Can I put up my own sign?"
In order to get Farmer Jack off his back said "Sure. Put up your own sign.
The phone calls to the Police Station stopped, but curiosity got the
better of the Officer, so he called Farmer John, “How’s the problem
with the speeding drivers. did you put up your sign?"
"Oh, I sure did and not one chicken has been killed.
The policeman was really curious and thought he'd better go out and
take a look at the sign. He also thought the sign might be something
the Police could use elsewhere, to slow drivers down..
So he drove out to Farmer Jack's house.   His jaw dropped the moment
he saw the sign.
'NUDIST COLONY'
'Slow down and watch for chicks!'

The Affair

A doctor was having an affair with his nurse. Shortly afterward, she told him she was pregnant. Not wanting his wife to know, he gave the nurse a sum of money and asked her to go to Italy and have the baby there. "But how will I let you know the baby is born?" she asked. He replied, "Just send me a postcard and write 'spaghetti' on the back. I'll take care of expenses." Not knowing what else to do, the nurse took the money and flew to Italy. Six months went by and then one day the doctor's wife called him at the office and explained, "Dear, you received a very strange postcard in the mail today from Europe, and I don't understand what it means." The doctor said, "Just wait until I get home and I will explain it to you." Later that evening, the doctor came home, read the postcard, fell to the floor with a heart attack. Paramedics rushed him to the ER. The lead medic stayed back to comfort the wife. He asked what trauma had precipitated the cardiac arrest. So the wife picked up the card and read, "'Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti - Two with sausage and meatballs, two without.'"

“How old are you?” the doctor asks.

“I’m 82 and she’s 24. I want a complete examination to make sure everything’s working properly,” says the old man.

The doctor says, “24! Well, I’ll do the examination. But it might be better if you also got a young lodger. You know, company for your wife.”

“Yes, yes, what a good idea,” says the old man.

The doctor meets him again a few months later. “Did you get married?” asks the doctor. “How’s your young bride?”

“She’s pregnant,” says the old man proudly.

“And, erm, how’s the lodger?” says the doctor nervously.

“She’s pregnant too,” says the old man...

Ernie was admitted to his care home many years ago. He had for those many years talked about his sexual desires not being met or encouraged and most people thought it to be a joke. He was a very pleasant mannered man and very easy going. Always sympathetic towards the staff and helpful when he could be with the residents. He was an eighty nine year old, still talking about his lack of sexual activity, so when his ninetieth Birthday came along, the staff got together to try to arrange something they thought he would really appreciate. One ingenious member of staff suggested that they hire a 'strippagram' lady, to give him a thrill on his big day and this quickly became an established idea. The Senior staff, contacted a lady who advertised locally and the scene was set. On his big day, Ernie was conveniently sat at a table, across from the main door to the dining room, where his party was being held. As his Birthday cake was being brought around and the wine and sherry distributed, the music started and Ernie looked up to see where it was coming from, only to see a scantily clad woman crossing the floor towards him. She moved quickly to where Ernie was sat and pranced sexily round him, for a few minutes, until the music stopped. She looked him straight in the eyes and he very loudly asked 'What do you want'?..... She smiled a broad sexy smile and replied 'I've come to give you Supersexxxxxxxxx'!!!!. He paused for a few seconds then replied ' I think I'll have the soup'.

Mind you, I've had my revenge on the next generation. There's a certain shape of nose (and an accompanying joke) that I inherited from my father, and bequeathed to my son.

In 1986, Peter Davies was on a gap year in Kenya after graduating from Salford University UK.
On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Pete approached it very carefully. He got down on one knee, inspected the elephants foot, and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Pete worked the wood out with his knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot.
The elephant turned to face Pete and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Pete stood frozen, but eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned and walked away. Pete never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.
Twenty years later, Pete was walking through a Zoo with his teenage son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Peter and his son David were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Pete, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at Pete.
Remembering the encounter in 1986, Pete could not help thinking that this was the same elephant. He summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared at it in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Petes’ legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.
Don’t think it was the same elephant.

Back to the joke thread:-

A woman was chatting to her neighbour over the garden fence, discussing their tomato plants. A day or two before, both of them had plants laden with unripe fruit but now his tomatoes were red and ready to pick while hers were still green. She asked him what he done to achieve such a transformation. He said that the night before, he had just got out of the bath and remembered that he needed to put something away in the greenhouse. He went out in just his bathrobe and slippers and as he reached up to put a box on a shelf, his bathrobe fell open, revealing his masculinity. He joked that the tomatoes must have blushed with embarrassment at the sight as overnight they had turned red.

That night, as she was getting ready for bed, she thought that she would give it a try. She went out into the garden and, after checking that no one was around, she opened her dressing wide. The next day she told her neighbour what she had done:

“Did it work?” he asked.

“No!” she replied. “They’re still green but the cucumbers have grown quite a bit.”

Two women were playing golf. One teed off and watched in horror as the ball headed directly towards four men playing the next hole.
The ball hit one man and he clasped his hands together at his groin, fell to the ground and proceeded to roll around in agony.
The woman rushed to the man, and apologised. ‘'Please let me help. I'm a Physiotherapist and I know I could Relieve your pain if you'll let me’' she told him. 'Oh, no, I'll be all right. I'll be fine in a few minutes,' he replied. He was in obvious agony, lying in the foetal position, still clasping his hands at his groin. At her persistence, however, he agreed to let her help.
She moved his hands to the side, loosened his pants and put her hands inside. She provided tender and artful massage for several long minutes. ‘'How does that feel?’’ she asked. He replied: ‘'It feels great, but I still think my thumb's broken’

I figured I'd take a shot.

An American is lecturing a British person, saying things like “it’s an elevator not a lift” and “it’s chips not crisps” etc. After a while of this the British person calmly retorted “they’re schools, not shooting ranges”

A Foreign exchange student is sobbing under desk
American student: “First time?"

How are school shooting victims and school shooting jokes similar? They never get old.

A man with a gun goes into a bank and demands for money.
Once he is given the money, he turns to a customer and asks, “Did you see me rob this bank?”
The man replied, “Yes sir, I did.”
The robber shot him in the head, killing him instantly.
He then turned to a couple standing next to him and asked the man, “Did you see me rob this bank?”
The man replied, “No sir, I didn’t, but my wife did!”

Whenever I hear about a mass shooting, the first thing I think is
Betty White.

School shootings have class and mass shootings are Catholic.

A burly sailor gets brought into an infirmary staffed by a bunch of postulate nuns, girls barely 18 preparing to become full nuns, and of course, supervised by a few gruff looking nuns.
Being good Catholics in a small Newfoundland seaside town, such oddities rarely found their way to their front door. The elder nuns insisted that only they would attend to him. The next evening there was a crash and a scream!! The sister ran out the door as fast as she could. Sister Marry Clarance of the Assumption held her weight to the door, white as a ghost and muttered..
"On hh..his.. Pe.. Penis it has a..word...SWAN!" And then she ran off to her room.

The next morning Sister Gertrude Harmony of the Assumption quite sternly takes over as the ward of the sailor, lecturing the girls over breakfast of the sins of curiosity and the flesh!
“Is it true?” asked Marta. “Does he truly have ‘Swan’ tattooed on his spear of Adam?”“I’LL HEAR NO MORE OF THIS NONSENSE!!” Yells Sister Gertrude as she storms out the room.
But the young ladies only became more intrigued. Being a particularly observant lot, they knew Sister Gertrude loved the communion wine as much as she loved the lord. So one night the postulates fortified the sacrament with some brandy. Soon Sister Gertrude was snoring.

All the girls were anxious, but none could muster the courage! Such trepidation! How does a young lady ask to see a strange man’s penis in a way that would be pleasing to the Lord?
A bath! Fetch water and soap! SSHH!! Don’t wake Sister Marry Clarance or Sister Gertrude. They’ll have our habits!!
While the four or so ladies scrambled for an alibi, the rest formed a circle around one. She was shy, quiet, timid, and quite pretty. Me!?! She asked.“Do it for us Mary? Please?! We may never see one! You must tell us what it’s like! And if it truly has a word on it.

Mary gathered her nerve, and sighed deeply. Then she took the wash basin, and with a confidence nobody knew she had, marched right into the sailor’s room.
She was even humming. Ten minutes later, the humming stopped.Twenty minutes later, strange noises the girls have never heard started.
Forty minutes later, the ringleader of the postulates stood by the door, banging on it every five minutes to hush them up.
Over an hour later, Mary came out the door, hair neat, habit in place, only a bit of flush and glow to give her away.

All the rest swarmed her like geese.“So...”“So what?” She said“Well does it...say...”Mary cut her off “Does it say ‘Swan?’”Mary turned and walked to the door turning back from the doorway she looked them all in the eye and smiled and said..

“No, It says "SASKATCHEWAN”

For the first time in three years the Jehovah's Witness fellow called on me today (this is a true story, not a joke). I always have a banter with him as he's a dear old chap. His wife died during the pandemic and he's now 86 years old. He knows that I'm an incorrigible atheist but we see eye-to-eye on the woes of the world (maybe not how they should be fixed). If he comes in September he can have a big bag of apples from my trees, a bit of a ritual.

Anyway, this is a joke thread, and his visit reminded me of the old Tommy Cooper chestnut:

Surely that can't be true. Rescuers would have to be very stupid indeed to think that so many bodies could possibly have fitted into a "small, two-seater Cessna plane". They would have to be even stupider not to have linked together the state of the bodies discovered, the presence of coffins of various ages, and the location of the crash, a cemetery, as offering a likely explanation. These people responding to this crash, presumably Irish people, must be represented as very, very thick indeed in this supposed joke.

Mr Harkness walks into a bank London and asks for the loan officer. He says he's going to Europe on business for two weeks and needs to borrow £5000. The bank officer says the bank will need some kind of security for the loan, so Mr Harkness hands over the keys to a new Rolls Royce, which cost a quarter of a million pounds.

“The car is parked on the street in front of the bank,” says Mr Harkness, “and I have all the necessary papers.”

The bank officer agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. After Mr Harkness leaves, the loan officer, the bank's president and all their colleagues enjoy a good laugh at the man for using a £250,000 Rolls Royce as collateral against a £5,000 loan.

One of the employees drives the Rolls into the bank's underground garage and parks it there. Two weeks later, Mr Harkness returns, repays the £5000 and the interest, which comes to £15.41.

The loan officer says, "Sir, I must tell you, we’re all a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and discovered that you’re a multimillionaire. Why would you bother to borrow £5,000?"

The man replies, "Where else in London can I park my car for two weeks for only £15.41?"

Waiting to catch speeding drivers, a Police Officer

He thought "This driver is just as dangerous as a speeder!"
So he turned on his lights and pulled the driver over.
Approaching the car, he noticed that there are five old ladies, two in
the front seats and three in the back...wide eyed and white as ghosts.
The driver, obviously confused, said to him "Officer, I don't
understand, I was doing exactly the speed limit!
What seems to be the problem?"
"Ma'am," the officer replies, "you weren't speeding, but you should
know that driving slower than the speed limit can also be a danger to
other drivers."
"Slower than the speed limit? No sir, I was doing the speed limit
exactly...Twenty-two miles an hour!" ....the old woman says a bit
proudly.
The Police officer, trying to contain a chuckle explains to her that
A22 is the road number, not the speed limit.
A bit embarrassed, the woman grins and thanks the officer for pointing
out her error.
"But before I let you go, Ma'am, I have to ask....Is everyone in this
car OK? These women seem awfully shaken, and they haven't made a sound
this whole time,"
"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute officer. We've just come off the A120."

She cannot see him and becomes frantic. She casts her eyes heavenward and says: "Oh Lord, I know I haven't always lived a righteous life but my son is life itself to me. If you return him to me alive I swear to live a better life and honor your name". Then she sees a tiny black speck, way up in the clouds. It grows as it gets nearer until she can make out a great albatross in very steep dive. It follows a sunbeam down to the water and then beneath the waves. After being out of sight for several seconds, it rises again from the sea and lo and behold the small child is riding on its back. The great beast flies ashore and deposit him in his mother's arms and then soars into the sunset. The ecstatic woman squeezes her wee lad til he squeals and rains kisses down upon his head. She holds him at arms length and satisfied he is intact she raise her eyes once more to the heavens and says "Um...he WAS wearing a hat".

Famous original 1935 joke in Berlin:
I stepped into the popular Aschinger restaurant in Berlin and ordered a Bismarck herring. ‘I beg your pardon, sir’ apologized the waiter, ‘I can only serve you a Hitler herring’. ‘Well – what is the difference?’ ‘The Bismarck herring had a head, sir; the Hitler herring hasn’t’’.

I followed your link and read the jokes from 19th century America. I came to the conclusion that what I'd thought was my prejudice against American "humour" is, in fact, not prejudice at all. Not one titter was raised by any of those jokes. They are, quite simply, not funny in any objective sense. They represent misplaced wit that's hardly worthy of the name, and are just about as far from generating belly-laughs as it's possible to be. They are attempts to be over-clever by people who are complete strangers to clever.

I suppose you guys still think that Bob Hope ever said anything funny or witty. Tsk.

"Don't worry Mom, the...[real]...jokes are coming" (B.H.)

Most of those C19th American "dry goods" (O.W.) struck me as similar to the standard fare of many currently popular American comedy shows, "sitcoms", and the like, in that for the most part I can see what the play on words, or allusion, or reference, or parody, is, but it's so obvious and banal that with a bit of revision it might be improved into something worthy of being included in a Christmas Cracker. For instance, this version is better than the American one cited:
"Ye've holes in baith yr socks"
"Whit? That cannae be; they're new!"
"How did ye get yr feet intae thaim, then?"

Characteristically, the following example of a play on words and meanings is less confrontational than the American one about the chimney, in which the youth seems to seize the opportunity to be needlessly unpleasant in a manner which would, a century later, arise in all triumphant splendour and spread like a malign web world-wide:
A well-to-do gentleman, leaving a hotel on the outskirts of a small Scottish village, passed by a youngster sitting at the roadside holding a short stick with a string attached, a bent pin tied to the end clearly visible through the two inches of muddy water in which he was "fishing". Indulgently, the wealthy visitor threw him a coin or two. Later - it was a small village - the tourist recognised the lad again.
"Well, Sonny," he said, "did you catch many fish today?"
"Naw... but Ah caught you".

I believe there's a Middle Eastern variant involving someone similarly "wise enough to play the fool", only his method involves carrying a net conspicuously into the desert. When the Sultan, Pasha, Vizier or whatever who has indulgently thrown the Village Idiot a shekel or two sees him later, there's not any net, and of course he mentions this.
"One does not need a net once one has caught the fish"

Ah, if you give someone a fish he will eat for a day. Teach him to fish instead, and you've just given up a good business opportunity.

not quite the same pattern, sure, but more snappy than the traditional "give him/her/them an inch and he/she/they will take an ell", is this from some film/movie:
"Give a woman an acorn and before you know where you are you're up to your arse in oak trees". "Snappy" ain't necessarily the same as "short".
Leaving aside Mark Twain, one memorable example of Anerican wit is Lincoln's riposte to some Congressman who had challenged him to a duel: "A duel? Why certainly, Sir. What d'ye say to cow-dung thrown at ten paces?"

A lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars, then insured them against, among other things, fire. Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars and without yet having made even his first premium payment on the policy, the lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company. In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost ‘in a series of small fires.’
The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason, that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion.

The lawyer sued.. and WON!

Delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company that the claim was frivolous. The judge stated nevertheless, that the lawyer held a policy from the company, which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining what is considered to be ‘unacceptable fire’ and was obligated to pay the claim!
Rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to the lawyer for his loss of the cigars lost in the ‘fires’.

After the lawyer cashed the cheque, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!!! With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine.

The best part of this lawyer joke is that this is a true story.



23 Climate deniers have been consumed by wildfires. The families have lost every insurance claim on the grounds they were a hoax.

More than half-a-century ago, in Glasgow, a wee wummin had read something in a magazine about French Cooking (except that it was called "Cuisine"). When she noticed that one of the big stores had started displaying exotic looking cakes and confectionery, she called a young shop-assistant and, pointing to one of them, asked,
"Is that a 'Gateau' or a 'Meringue'?"
The wee lassie, new to the work and not very familiar with foreign foods, replied,
"Naw, ye're right enough, it's a 'Gateau'".

For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years."
The dog said: "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?"
So God agreed.
God created the monkey and said: "Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span."
The monkey said: "Tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the Dog did?"
And God agreed.
God created the cow and said: "You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years."
The cow said: "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?"
And God agreed again.
God created Steve and said: "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years."
But Steve said: "Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?"
"Okay," said God, "You asked for it."
So that is why for our first twenty years he ate, slept, played and enjoyed himself. For the next forty years he slaved in the sun to al,ost support his family.

Its time again for “Explaining Jokes to Idiots” and break down jokes for the humor-impaired like Will Smith types.
Comedians have been under attack for some time, So I must defend my tribe. This war on jokes must end. Crone jokes about wise women does not have anything to do with degradation any more than the chicken crossing the road is about bird flu.

Critics who feel entitled to silence jokes is the perfect illustration of cancel culture. I remind you that Gilbert Gottfried and Kathy Griffin “were tasteless” in their moments. “So what? That’s why we like them!” From Dave Chappelle through Sarah Silverman and Roseanne, all comedians are a little crazy, Maher said. “And you need crazy on that wall.”

“Soon there will be nothing to joke about but airline food and Starbucks getting your name wrong or worn weary stevie jokes from his dad's time.”

Meanwhile, back at the thread title, one I've just heard in the family:

A cat dies and arrives at the Pearly Gates. "Hello," says St Peter. "Why should I let you in?"

"I've been an alley cat all my life," says the cat, "never knowing where the next meal's coming from, and having nowhere comfortable to lay my head."

"OK, you're in," says St Peter, who has a soft spot for animals. "Would you like anything here?"

"A soft cushion to rest on, please," he says. "I've always wanted one of those." And it was so.

A couple of days later, along come some mice. "Why should I let you in?" says St Peter, kindly.

"We're poor mice," they say, "and we've spent all our lives running from cats and dodging mouse-traps."

"OK, you're in. Would you like anything?"

"Ooh, thank you," they say. "We've always wanted roller skates, so we could escape from the cats." And it was so.

A few weeks later, St Peter goes on a tour of inspection, and sees the cat on his cushion. "Hello, there. How are things going?"

"Wonderful," says the cat. "This cushion is really soft, and those meals-on-wheels you keep sending are delicious."

2 Mudcat safety rules for jokes:

1. Show respect for your nation, corporation, gender and family.
2. Do Not Offend, anybody including company, boss or authority.

Keep in mind, too, that social media is not a place to share complaints. I recently saw a tweet from someone who “spent 15 years in soul-sucking Big Pharma.” Future employers or clients would likely pass on that individual, even if he or she had a perfectly good reason for having that sentiment. The fact is that every word about an employer should be positive, even in casual environments like social media or a networking happy hour–it’s just the more cowardly strategic move.

Do not offend. If a joke is about dogs, cats, crumpets and butter you are on safe ground. You already know it’s important to be a team player, which means speaking respectfully to your colleagues. But it’s sometimes difficult to put that knowledge into practice, especially the more familiar and casual your team becomes. If you get a laugh at someone’s expense, you’re already on dangerous terrain.

UK Exceptions: Jokes about genitals, wives, husbands, age, other religions, other philosophies, other races and nations.

A sort of Jewish one I heard (from Rabbi Lionel Blum) many years ago...

A river breaks its banks. A man is cut off in his house and retreats to his upper floor. Nevertheless, he has faith that God will save him.

Another man drives through the floodwater in a tractor. "Jump on the back" he shouts. "I'll get you to safety". "No", replies the man. "I trust in God to save me."

The waters rise higher. The man is forced to climb onto his roof. A boat motors up. "Jump in!" shouts the man in the boat. "I'll get you to safety." "No", replies the man. "I trust in the lord to save me."

The waters rise higher still. The man is clinging to his chimney pot. A helicopter appears overhead, dangling a rope ladder. "Grab the ladder!" shouts the pilot. "I'll get you to safety." "No thanks!" says the man. "I rely on God to save me."

The helicopter flies away. The waters still rise, the man is washed away and drowns. He appears at the pearly gates, furious. Saint Peter is surprised to see him. "I wasn't expecting you" he says. "I know you trusted in God to save you, so He sent you a tractor, then He sent you a boat, then He sent a helicopter..."

I know the Bible isn't everyone's favorite joke book but my tweaked pov makes me laugh at God's antics as written in the Bible. Nor is this a joke. For example; God drowned people, plants and animals when he made it rain for 40 days and nights - EXCEPT - for Noah&family along with his boatload of animals without plumbing.
After the great flood, God told Noah that he felt kinda bad over the whole mass killing thing and the smell so to make up for it, he created the 'rainbow' to cheer up Noah. ha ha The whole Bible is full of what a giant asshole God is, at least from my POV.

The Bible is hilarious if you don't buy into the vengeful God fearing thing. By the time God Inc. wrote the new testament many of the best jokes were lost. Thats why Jews still make good comedians. From the old testament, they know what a giant asshole God can be.

I have joined a terrorist group and we a planning to take over the country by force. My part in the plot will be to plant a bomb in Buckingham Palace and kidnap a member of the Royal Family. MI5 are on to us, so I have had to make my escape while there is still time. You may not see me for a while, although you might read about me in the newspapers.
I will miss you, as I hope you will miss me.
Your loving son,
Darren.

P.S. – None of the above is true but it shows that there are worse things in this world than a bad school report. It’s behind the clock on the mantelpiece. I will be staying at Gavin’s until you have calmed down.

On Christmas morning, a cop on horseback sits at a traffic light next to a kid on a shiny new bike.

The cop says to the kid, "Nice bike you got there. Did Santa bring that to you?"

The kid says, "Yeah."

The cop says, "Well, next year, tell Santa to put a tail light on that bike" and issues the kid a £20 bicycle violation ticket.

The kid takes the ticket and says, "By the way, that's a nice horse you got there. Did Santa bring that to you?"

Humouring the kid, the cop says, "Yeah, he sure did."

The kid says, "Well, next year tell Santa to put the dick underneath the horse instead of on top."

A pensioner had been nagging her husband to get their financial affairs in order now they were getting on a bit in years. They took a trip into town, first to the insurance brokers, where the man took out a hefty life insurance. Next to the solicitor’s where they sorted out his will, leaving everything to his wife. Then on to the bank where he arranged to give his wife access to all his accounts.

As they were about to leave the bank, they heard a mighty crash and a masked man, carrying a sawn-off shotgun, burst through the door. One brave bank employee tackled the robber and pulled his mask away. Quickly replacing it, the robber shouted “you saw my face”, raised his gun and blasted the employee square in the chest. Turning to the cowering customers, he shouted “did anyone see my face?”. The couple were nearest and he thrust his gun at the woman and shouted “did you see my face?”
“N.. n .no!” she stammered, “but my husband did”.

The only cow in a small town in Ireland stopped giving milk. Then the town folk found they could buy a cow in Scotland quite cheaply. So, they brought the cow over from Scotland. It was absolutely wonderful, It produced lots of milk every day and everyone was happy. They bought a bull to mate with the cow to get more cows, So they'd never have to worry about their milk supply again. They put the bull in the pasture with the cow but no matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from the bull. The people were very upset and decided to go to The Vet, who was very wise, tell him what was happening and ask his advice. " The Vet rubbed his chin thoughtfully and pondered this Before asking, "Did you by chance, buy this cow in Scotland ?" The people were dumbfounded, since no one had ever mentioned that they had brought the cow over from Scotland . "You are truly a wise Vet," they said. "How did you know we got the cow from Scotland ? The Vet replied with a distant look in his eye: "My wife is from Scotland "

I just read this by Stewart Lee in the Observer:

When assembling the bill for the 1912 Royal Command Performance, to be attended by King George V, the impresario Oswald Stoll seized his chance to steer British comedy away from the radicalism and vulgarity of the music hall, sensing a much larger market for a more sanitised product. Britain’s most popular comedian of the day, Marie Lloyd, was noticeably excluded. Lloyd had sung the refrain: “She sits among the cabbages and peas” and when challenged on its meaning had offered to change the line to: “She sits among the cabbages and leeks.”

Once there was a prince who had been cursed by a witch. The curse was that he could only say one word every year.

Well one day, while walking the royal gardens, he comes across a beautiful woman. He loves her so much, and decides he wants to marry her.

He doesn't talk for three years, so he can save up the words to say "I love you!"

Then, realising it wasn't enough, he waits another four years so he can say "Will you marry me?" but he doesn't get much of a response...

Another seven years pass. He gets on his knees, looks up at the woman and says, "I love you. will you marry me?"

The woman looks at him and responds, "Sorry, what was that?"

What does 'vale of tears' mean in English?
Noun. vale of tears (plural vales of tears), (in the singular) The world, a place where difficulties and the sorrows of life are felt, especially (Christianity) as a place to be left behind when one dies and goes to heaven.
Where did the phrase vale of tears come from?
The phrase appears in some translations of Psalm 84:6, which describes those strengthened by God's blessing: "As they pass through the valley of tears (Hebrew: ????? ????????), they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools"

I think it does not mean what he thinks it means. If he does, he's pretty religious for an atheist or a nontheist.

"Darling wife," the husband whispers, "assure me that the youngest child really is mine. I want to know the truth before I die, I will forgive you if ..."

The wife gently interrupts him. "Yes, my dearest, absolutely, no question, I swear on my mother's grave that you are his father."

The man then dies, happy. The wife mutters under her breath: "Thank God he didn't ask about the other three."

The old lady remained silent for a few seconds and handed her card back to the teller and said “Please help me withdraw all the money I have.” The teller was astonished when she checked the account balance. She nodded her head, leaned down and respectfully told her “you have $300,000 in your account but the bank doesn’t have that much cash currently. Could you make an appointment and come back again tomorrow?
The old lady then asked how much she could withdraw immediately. The teller told her any amount up to $3000. “Well please let me have $3000 now.” The teller kindly handed $3000 to her in a friendly way and with a smile to her face.
The old lady put $10 in her purse and asked the teller to deposit $2,990 back into her account.

The moral of this story is....
Don’t be difficult with old people, they spent a lifetime learning the skill.

A true story

The GF was buying walking boot laces and prepared by counting the eyelets. Perusing the stand (me looking on with a lacey fair attitude) she chose the the ones for 16 holes. The attendant asked was she sure, as they were 6 ft long and suggested she counted only one half. My reaction:

"counting the ayes to the right?"

The attendant thought it good in enough to repeat. (sorry US, it is a UK parliamentary reference)

Putin wanted to know if Zelensky was still alive...

Zelensky himself decided to send Putin a letter in his own handwriting to let him know he was still in the game. Putin opened the letter which appeared to contain a single line of a coded message.

















370HSSV-0773H















Putin was baffled, so he emailed it to Lukashenko, and his aides had no idea either, so they sent it to the KGB. No one could solve it at the KGB, so it went to the CIA, then to NSA. With no clue as to the meaning. The FBI finally asked the Australian Military for help. Within a few seconds the they called back with this message:



“Tell that Wanker Putin he’s holding the message upside down." .

They tell him, "Well, we're so sick of the cold and damp where we're from, and this place is nice and toasty."

Satan, annoyed, storms away and goes to Hell's boiler room, where he turns up the temperature.

He goes back to the Brit's room, along the way being begged by all sorts of condemned people to stop the heating. He enters the room to see the Grits having a cook out. Furiously, he asks them what they're doing.

"Well, we can't pass up this wonderful weather without getting out the barbecue!"

Satan realizes he's been doing the wrong thing. He goes to the boiler room and turns it down until it's at a colder temperature than ever.

He knows he's won now, so he goes back to the Brits' room, only to see them jumping up and down in excitement.

He shouts at them in fury, "WHY ARE YOU STILL HAPPY?!?!?!"

A man walks into a bar and notices a poker game at the far table. Upon taking a closer look he sees a dog sitting at the table. This peaks his curiosity and he walks closer and sees cards and chips in front of the dog. Then the next hand is dealt and cards are dealt to the dog. Then the dog acts in turn with all the other players, calling, raising, discarding, everything the other human players were doing. However none of the other players seemed to pay any mind to the fact that they were playing with a dog, they just treated him like any other player.

Finally the man could not longer hold his tongue so between hands he quietly said to one of the players, “I can’t believe that dog is playing poker, he must be the smartest dog in the world!” The player smiled and said, “He isn’t that smart, every time he gets a good hand he wags his tail.”

How do you spot a narcissist?

He's the one who thinks his jokes are funnier than yours.
He's the one who can't understand more than one branch of humour, his.
He's the one who hasn't spotted himself when you hold up an allegorical mirror.

Well I once looked at my mush in an allegorical mirror. I thought to myself, is this some kind of bloody joke?

Or am I speaking metaphysically?

Meanwhile, back at the jokes, here's a ha-ha-only-serious from my old trade:

What's yellow and dangerous?

A canary with the root password.

The one joke that never gets me a laugh and always induces irritation, but which I consider to be bloody hilarious, is:

What have Jimmy Edwards and Lulu got in common?

They both have moustaches except Lulu.

(I think it was a Crackerjack joke).

There. Told you it was hilarious!

There are categories of jokes. One common on is the 'war between the sexes'....


Sometimes women are overly suspicious of their husbands. When Adam stayed out very late for a few nights, Eve became upset. “You’re running around with other women,” she charged.

“You’re being unreasonable,” Adam responded. “You’re the only woman on earth.” The quarrel continued until Adam fell asleep, only to be awakened by someone poking him in the chest.

It was Eve. “What do you think you’re doing?” Adam demanded.

“Counting your ribs,” said Eve.

One of the most common is sex itself:

An old farmer managed to secure himself a young wife. Everyone gossiped about it, but he seemed happy.
Then one day the local doctor met Jake on the street.
"Hey doc," the farmer said, " I've been meaning to ask you about a kinda awkward problem."

"Well, I'll try. What's going on?"

"You see, doc, I ain't as young as I used to be, and I love my wife, but certain things are not as easy as they were when I was young. Sometimes I get that 'urge' when I'm out plowing, but by the time I get back up to the house, my energy and the 'urge' are gone."

"Hmmm..", says the doctor, "You know, she is young and spry. Why don't you pack a blanket and a pillow on the tractor and take your shotgun along. Then, when the urge hits, fire off a shot and have her come down to the field to you!"

"Gosh, doc, that's a great idea! Thanks."

So, about a month later, the doctor meets Jake again and asks him, "Hey Jake... that idea I gave you awhile back...umm.. how'd that work out?"

The farmer sighs sadly and shakes his head..."Well, doc, it worked just fine for a couple of weeks... then huntin' season opened, and I ain't see her since!"

A new shift manager was being shown around the Latex factory where he had just been hired. The plant manufactures various latex products, and has a reputation for using cutting edge technology in its manufacturing process.

On one side of the building, the factory makes baby bottle nipples. The machine makes a loud hiss-pop noise, and the shift manager asked his tour guide what it was doing.

"As the rubber is being injected into the mold, it makes a hiss noise. he said The popping sound is from needle poking a hole in the end of the nipple."

On the other side of the building, the two men look at the condom making machine. This machine makes a hiss.. hiss hiss-pop sound during the manufacturing process.

"Wait a second", the future shift manager says, "I know what the hiss, hiss is...it's extruding the condom.. but what's with the pop noise every once in awhile?"

"Oh, that.. Its the same as the baby bottle nipple process." said the guide "It pokes a hole in every third condom."

"But that cant be good for the condoms business!" the observant shift manager replied.

"Nah, but its really good for the baby bottle nipple business!"
