Subject: BS: Joke thread for 2023
From: Steve Shaw
Date: 31 Dec 22 - 11:13 AM

I start this thread with trepidation.

Call me Mr Control Freak, but I have a very strict rule for this thread.

Are you listening?

Ahem... here it is...

THIS IS A JOKE THREAD (Glad I got that off my chest...)

I went to the doc on Thursday. He told me he had good news and bad news.

"The good news is that your test results tell me that you still have 48 hours to live."

"No! That's good news? So what's the bad news, Doc?"

"I forgot to tell you this when I saw you on Tuesday..."

Strictly for Brit humour, especially if you're a scouser, doubly especially if you're a Liverpool fan:

A wayside pulpit outside a local church in Liverpool, in the late 1960s:

'Jesus Saves!'

Some wag wrote below it, 'St John knocks in the rebound'...

Another one said, 'What will you do when Jesus returns?' Someone added 'Move St. John to inside right!'

[For the non-cognoscenti, you poor things, Ian St John was a legendary Liverpool goal-scorer in the sixties]

My seven-year-old grandson got a kids' joke book for Christmas. He just told me this one:

"Why did the boy fall off his bike?

Because his mother threw a refrigerator at him."

I think I'll avoid any further books from that publisher!

A man was getting a haircut prior to a trip to Rome. He mentioned the trip to the barber, who responded, “Why would anyone want to go there? It’s crowded and dirty and full of Italians. You’re crazy to go to Rome. So, how are you getting there?”
“We’re taking United,” was the reply. “We got a great rate!”
“United!” exclaimed the barber. “That’s a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly and they’re always late. So, where are you staying in Rome?”
“We’ll be at the downtown International Marriott.”
“That dump! That’s the worst hotel in Rome. The rooms are small, the service is surly and they’re overpriced. So, whatcha doing when you get there?”
"We’re going to go to see the Vatican and we hope to see the Pope."
"That’s rich,” laughed the barber. “You and a million other people trying to see him. He’ll look the size of an ant. Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You’re going to need it!”
A month later, the man again came in for his regular haircut. The barber asked him about his trip to Rome.
“It was wonderful,” explained the man. “Not only were we on time in one of United’s brand new planes, but it was overbooked and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a beautiful young stewardess who waited on me hand and foot. And the hotel! Well, it was great! They’d just finished a $25 million remodeling job and now it’s the finest hotel in the city. They were overbooked too, so they apologized and gave us the presidential suite at no extra charge!”
“Well,” muttered the barber. “I know you didn’t get to see the Pope.”
“Actually, we were quite lucky, for as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I’d be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me. Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked in. As I knelt down he spoke to me.”
“What did he say?”
“He said, ‘Where’d you get this shitty haircut?"

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’’

One of the grimmest gravestone inscriptions I know of is the one on the grave of Jim (whose surname I forget) who was the landlord of the Bush Inn in Morwenstow, Cornwall. The grave is in the Morwenstow churchyard. It reads:

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead


(from a poem by WH Auden)

Jim died some time in the 1990s. We knew him and his partner Beryl quite well. A more severe pair of sourpusses you've never met. One summer's evening Mrs Steve and I drove to the pub, looking forward to a pleasant bar meal, which the pub was noted for. When we arrived, we found all the doors locked and Jim strolling around outside. To my polite enquiry as to the prospect of our obtaining a drink and a meal, he told me that he wasn't opening. He didn't feel like it. He couldn't be bothered. Tails between legs, we made our way home, stopping at the chippy in Kilkhampton.

Seems that the tone of his epitaph was in keeping with his character...

That Bill joke reminds me of a Barry Cryer classic:

A man ran over a cockerel with his car and went to a nearby farmhouse to see how he can help. A woman opens the door and he says: “I appear to have killed your cockerel. I’d like to replace him.’ She replies: “Please yourself, the hens are round the back’.”

A Frankie Howerd one. When I was a student in London my landlady was Elizabeth Larner, who played Ammonia in Frankie Howerd's Roman sitcom (Up Pompeii). One evening, Frankie was their dinner guest, and we students were under strict orders not to venture out of our rooms to try to glimpse him! We heard quite a bit of uproarious laugher from downstairs...

To the joke...


An 82 year old man goes to his doctor.

'I want a complete physical examination. I'm about to get married,' says the old man.

'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 said, '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.

Here's a Cryer classic.

Walking down the high street one day a woman spots a sign in the local pet shop: 'Talking parrot, only £5 (cage included)'.

Intrigued, she enters the store and asks the proprietor why it's priced so cheaply.

"Well, I must confess, it was brought up in a brothel," says the shopkeeper. "And, to put it politely, it has quite an extensive vocabulary."

"Never mind," says the woman. "At that price, I'll take it."

So she takes the parrot home, puts its cage in the living room and takes the cover off.

"New place - very nice," says the parrot.

Then the woman's two daughters walk in.

"New place, new girls - very nice," says the parrot.

Then the woman's husband walks in, and the parrot says, "Oh hello, Keith!"

There was this well to do old farmer who managed to snare himself a pretty young wife. He was a likable sort, and folks just shrugged. They knew she sort of expected to inherit a nice farm in a few years, but he knew what he wanted.
So, one day he was in town for his annual checkup, and told the doc he had a serious question.

"Doc, you know I ain't as young as I usta be, and them romantic feelings..*wink, wink* are a bit scarcer than they were 30 years ago...Now, when I'm plowing down in the south 40, sometimes I get the urge...but by the time I get back up to the house, I'm so tired it's gone again. You got any ideas?"

"Hmmmm, John", says the doc, "you know, your place is pretty isolated. Why don't you just take a blanket and your shotgun with you on the tractor, then when you feel in the mood, you can fire off the gun as a signal to Sally to come down to YOU!...She's a bit younger"

"Well, durn Doc, that's a fine idea! I'll try it!"

So....several months later, the doctor meets old John on the street, and can't resist asking..."Hey, John, how did that idea work out...about taking the blanket and shotgun down with you during plowing?"

"Waaal, you know, Doc....that worked pretty damn good...for about 2-3 weeks....then huntin' season started, and I ain't seen her since!"

After ordering a drink, and sitting there for a while, the blind guy yells to the bartender, "Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?"

The bar immediately becomes absolutely quiet.

In a husky, deep voice, the woman next to him says, "Before you tell that joke, you should know something. The bartender is blonde, the bouncer is blonde, and I'm a 6' tall, 200 lb. blonde with a black belt in karate. What's more, the woman sitting next to me is blonde and she's a weight lifter. The lady to your right is a blonde, and she's a pro wrestler. Think about it seriously, Mister. You still wanna tell that joke?"

The guy from Budweiser says, 'I'd like what's really the best brew in the world, give me 'The King Of Beers'-- throw me Bud, Buddy.'--The bartender grits his teeth and lobs him a cold one.

The guy from Coors, having shaken the the Union rabble from his entourage says, "I'd like the only Right-to-Work beer made with Rocky Mountain spring water! Toss me some Colorado joy!!."--And he gets it!

The guy from Guinness sits down and says, "Ahm... I'll just have a Coke-- Classic, please..."

The bartender, a bit taken aback, gives him a bottle of the best cola ever.

The other brewery presidents, startled at that order, mutter, almost in unison: "Ya'rn't drinking a Guinness?!?'

'Oh yes,' says the landlord. 'How are you going to do that?'

The man gets a hamster out of his pocket and puts it on the piano. The hamster runs up and down the keyboard playing the greatest piano music anyone had ever heard. 'That's incredible!' says the landlord. 'Have you got anything else?'

The man gets a parrot out of his other pocket and puts it on the bar. The hamster begins to play the piano again and the parrot sings along - sounding just like Pavarotti. Everyone in the bar is amazed and they stay all night drinking and listening to the hamster and parrot.

The landlord is delighted. 'I must have these animals. Will you sell them to me?' he asks. The man shakes his head: no.

'Will you sell just one then?' asks the bartender. 'OK, I'll sell you the parrot for £100,' the man says. The landlord is delighted and hands over the money. Another man standing next to the man who owned the hamster says: 'You're a bit stupid selling that clever parrot for only £100.' 'No I'm not,' the man replies. 'The hamster is a ventriloquist'.

A man says to his doctor "I think my wife is going deaf, but I don't want to mention it as it'll be tactless and insensitive. Is there any way I can gauge it, preferably without her knowing?" The doctor replies: "There is, it's quite easy, choose a moment when she has her back to you, say something in a normal voice and if she doesn't answer, move a little nearer and say it again and you'll get an idea about her hearing."

So when he comes home from work, his wife is standing with her back to him in the kitchen. He says "What's for dinner love?" but gets no answer. He moves in a little closer "What's for dinner love?" again, no response, and moves in again "What's for dinner love?" - nothing.

By now he's right behind her, he says again "What's for dinner love?" She turns round and says "For the fourth time - chicken!!"

The Police have recently found a large number of dead crows on Route 66.. An animal 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 motorcycles, 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"

In a sense, nearly all jokes are repeats after a fashion. Genuine joke-inventors are rare beasts, so we have to resort to mass-borrowings. Unfortunately, not only can Donuel not invent jokes (like the rest of us I suppose, though most of us, unlike him, have the sense not to try), he doesn't know what a joke is. Dictionaries are available. Here's another of my oft-repeated Tim Vine ones:

I was on the Big Dipper on Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Half the time I was laughing my head off and half the time I was in floods of tears. It was an emotional roller-coaster...

Another thing that I like about jokes is that they gradually change in the telling down the years. They undergo a joke folk-process!

Steve quotes:
Not a joke. Not funny. You haven't a clue, have you.
Ps., Donuel: It's a joke thread.
You have not got a single joke in your bones. Why don't you google? Idiot.


Then I will repeat my originals. But I won't google...Momma, why is my sister such smartie pants?
Well dear, On the sixth day, God put Adam into a coma and took his rib bone marrow out to fashion woman...already exhausted from all that creating he really needed a break, and on the seventh day he rested. He never created again except for disasters and floods. Able asked God "could you clear up some of your mistakes like the platypus and other things like a woman being smarter..." That was the last we ever heard from Able. When Eve hungrily ate from the tree of knowledge she became vastly smarter than Adam.

A slightly rude googled one:

A woman had a face lift for her 50th birthday. She spends £10,000 and looks sensational. On her way home, she stops at a news stand to buy a newspaper. Before leaving, she says to the chap, ‘I hope you don’t mind my asking, but how old do you think I am?”.

’About 32,’ is the reply.

‘Nope! I’m exactly 50,’ the woman says happily.

A little while later she goes into McDonald’s and asks the counter girl the very same question.

The girl replies, ‘I’d guess about 29.’ The woman replies with a big smile, ‘Nope, I’m 50.’

Now she’s feeling really good about herself. She stops at a sweet shop on her way down the street.

She goes up to the counter to buy some mints and asks the assistant the same burning question.

The clerk responds, ‘Oh, I’d say 30.’

Again she proudly replies, ‘I’m 50, but thank you!’

While waiting for the bus to go home, she asks an old man waiting next to her the same question.

He replies, ‘Lady, I’m 78 and my eyesight is going. Although, when I was young there was a sure-fire way to tell how old a woman was. It sounds very forward, but it requires you to let me put my hands under your bra. Then I'll be able to tell you exactly how old you are.’

They wait in silence on the empty street until her curiosity gets the better of her. She finally blurts out, ‘What the hell, go ahead.’

He slips both of his hands under her blouse and begins to feel around very slowly and carefully. He bounces and weighs each breast and he gently pinches each nipple. He pushes her breasts together and rubs them against each other.

After a couple of minutes of this, she says, ‘Okay, okay.....How old am I?’

He completes one last squeeze of her breasts, removes his hands, and says, ‘Madam, you are 50.’

Stunned and amazed, the woman says, ‘That was incredible, how could you tell?’

‘I was behind you at McDonalds’.

"Once again, likes and dislikes are prominent on this joke thread."

Sorry, but you're not getting away with that. It's just a feeble attempt to somehow legitimise your plethora of non-jokes, to somehow set them alongside the genuine jokes as equal in value to the real jokes, in what is a thread that's meant to be carefree and lighthearted. Your dozens of moans and non-jokes have been a concerted attempt to derail the thread for bitter reasons known only to you. A good joke exists in order to give us a belly laugh at best, failing that a titter at least, and occasionally a groan get-me-coat moment. It matters not a jot if they are unoriginal googles or repeats. You clearly don't understand any of these things. A good thing for you to do would be to review all your posts to this thread and reflect honestly on what you've really been trying to do.

Anyway.

"I've got good news and bad news," said the doc.

"Oh God! Well tell me the good news first, Doc!"

"Well, remember I said that your whole right leg would have to come off? Thing is, we only had to remove half of it after all!"

"Oh, that's great! But what's the bad news, Doc?"

"It was the top half..."

If your reply over on the Brexit thread started with "Sarkey ...", then it did take although it's not there now.

Anyway, not to waste a good joke, here it is again:-

A man was driving across country when he took a call from his wife on his hands-free phone. In an agitated voice, she said:
"If you're on the motorway, be careful. It's just been on the news that there is a car driving the wrong way on the M62".
"It's worse than that" he replied. "I'm on the M62 and they're all driving the wrong way'.

I thought it's time to be a good Samaritan so I retrieved it. When I opened it, there was a human toe packed in ice. Oops, that's a serious mistake I thought, so I called the local Hospital and they said 'yes, the ambulance had arrived minus the box'. I gave them my location and asked if they were going to send another ambulance to collect it?

Joke from a number of years ago:

Two rednecks (American lower class..mostly from the South) have been going duck hunting and not having much luck.
They were complaining in town, and a guy they knew from the other side of the valley said,
"Your problem is, you're trusting to your own cleverness. You need help. I have dogs which make things a lot easier."

Well, they beg and plead, and the guy finally agrees to loan them a couple of HIS dogs for a week.

   So they take the dogs with them for several days, but still aren't having any luck.

Hey Bill D, that last one reminded me of same 2 fellows who decided to go ice fishing.
They found some ice and cut a good size hole then dropped their lines in. After about 10 minutes they hear a booming voice from above say "There are no fish under the ice! They look around and cannot see anyone so they keep on fishing. Another 10 minutes later and they hear the booming voice again say "I said, there are no fish under the ice!" still seeing nobody around one of them jumped up and shouted "Who is that, God" the same voice replies "No, this is the rink manager".

The new monk goes to the basement of the monastery saying he wants to make copies of the originals rather than of others' copies so as to avoid duplicating errors they might have made. Several hours later the monks, wondering where their new friend is, find him crying in the basement. They ask him what is wrong and he says "the word is CELEBRATE, not CELIBATE!"

A lady walks into a BMW dealership. She browses around, spots the top-of-the-line beamer and walks over to inspect it. As she bends over to feel the fine leather upholstery, she inadvertently breaks wind. Very embarrassed, she looks around nervously to see if anyone has noticed. But as she turns around, her worst nightmare materializes in the form of a salesman standing right behind her. Displaying complete professionalism, the salesman greets the lady, "Good day, madam. How may we help you today?" Trying her best to be nonchalant, she asks, "How much does this lovely car cost?" He answers, "Madam, if you farted just by touching it, you are going to shit yourself when I tell you the price..."

When commercial sites started using BSD (fondly known by some of us as Berzerkeley Unix), some (*ahem*) managers pruned the "tunafish" joke out of tunefs(8)'s manpage. In SunOS 4.1.1, it had been reinstated, together with a comment in the source: "Take this out and a Unix Demon will dog your steps till the time_t's wrap around." We take our jokes seriously.

.... My favourite bit in the BUGS section of a manpage (which I can no longer find) was: "This is a very small candle attempting to illuminate a large, dark problem." Fifty bonus points to whoever rediscovers it for us all.

After completing his visit, the Canadian government gives him a chauffeur-driven car to see the natural beauty of Canada. After 20 kilometers through Canada, he says to the driver:

"Oh, let me get behind the wheel. I'm from the narrow Papal States, and I always have to sit in the back of the popemobile. even though I am such a passionate driver!" So the chauffeur swaps seats with the Pope.

After a few kilometers, the Pope is stopped by a police officer. The Pope winds the window down and the policeman immediately runs back to his car. From there he calls his superior:

"Lieutenant , i have a problem. I have a speeder here."

"What is the problem? Just fine him!"

"I think he is a big shot though."

"Is he higher ranked than me?"

"Lieutenant, i believe that is the case."

After a few kilometers, the Pope is pulled over by an RCMP constable. The Pope winds the window down and the Mountie immediately runs back to his car. From there he calls his superior:

"Staff sergeant, I have a problem. I have a speeder here."

"What is the problem? Just issue him a ticket!"

"I think he is a big shot, though."

A large and powerful kingdom conquered their wealthy neighbor only to discover its treasure was all hidden away.
Only the count from the conquered kingdom knew where the gold was hidden but he refused to tell.

The conquerors took him to the dungeon, placed his head on the chopping block, and told him:

“This is your last chance! Tell us where the gold is or off comes your head!”

Beads of sweat slithered down the count’s face but still he said nothing. The captain gave the signal, and the executioner brought his hatchet down, but just as he did, the count’s courage broke and he blurted out: “No! Wait! I’ll tell you where gold’s hid-“

But it was too late. The axe came down, off came the head, and no one got the gold.

The moral of the story is: “Don’t hatchet your count before he chickens.”

A guy who lived very close to his local zoo, and was well known to the staff was wandering around one day when he came to the wildebeest exhibit. He didn't see the usual resident of the enclosure, and and asked a keeper where it was. The keeper told him that the animal was getting on in years, and was either going to be sent to a retirement pasture or possibly put down.
   This made the man kinda sad, and on an impulse he asked if it would be possible to adopt it. The keeper said that that was highly regular, but it sounded like a good idea and he would take it up with the management of the zoo.
   Amazingly, the committee agreed and quietly arranged for the man to have the animal brought to his yard, which was quite spacious and fenced. Well, the man and the wildebeest really bonded, and the guy wondered if he could train his new companion like he had done with a border collie he once had. So he spent several months trying to get it to sit down, lay down on the ground, roll over and even beg for its dinner. Sadly, it was all to no avail, and after a while he gave up, reminding himself of an old saying he once heard.

This is absolutely true. A good few years ago, a geography teacher at the secondary school in Bude (shall we call him "Len?") was briefing his class of 15-year-olds before sending them out with clipboards to do a survey of the local shops. His parting shot before sending them out into town was "Right, boys and girls. Don't forget that I'll be in town myself keeping an eye on you, and I don't want to see you boys standing around on the street corners scratching your balls..."

"Len" is an old boy now but he's still around. In his day he was a mean, if wayward, trombone player who'd lead the band through town at the start of the Bude jazz festival. If I bump into him in town, even if it's just a sighting across the street, he greets me at 150 decibels like a long-lost friend, and he always asks about our two children by name, who he knew from the north Cornwall schools band ("Trigg"), even though he hasn't seen them now for 25 years. What a star! We need more of his kind!

"I know that all of you were saddened, to learn this week of the death of one of our most valuable workmates, ‘Someone Else’.
Someone Elses passing created a vacancy that will be difficult to fill. Someone has been with us for many years, and for every one of those years Someone did far more than the normal person’s share of the work.
Whenever leadership was mentioned, this wonderful person was looked to for inspiration as well as results. 'Someone Else can work with that group'!. Whenever there was a job to do, a workshop to lead, or a meeting to attend, the same name was on everyone’s lips. 'Let Someone Else do it'!. It was common knowledge that Someone Else was among the largest givers of time and talent in our organisation.
Someone Else was a wonderful person, sometimes even appearing super-human, and the truth is that everyone expected too much of Someone Else. Now Someone Else is gone, and we are left to wonder what to do now. Someone Else left us all a wonderful example to follow but who is going to follow it? Who is going to do the things Someone Else did? Remember, we can’t depend on Someone Else anymore so you might be required to do something yourself!!!!!." (Author unknown.)

There must be a few Someone Elses who have passed away, because I have seen similar obits here in Australia.

My hubby, now retired, worked in IT and if a problem was identified it was often humorously labelled as an SEP (Someone Else's Problem).

Bloke walked into a pub and ordered ten shots of whisky and a pint. The barman served up the whiskies, but during the short time he'd turned away to pull the pint the bloke had already downed all ten shots of whisky.

"Blimey, that was quick!" said the barman.

"Ah, you'd be drinking quickly if you had what I've got."

"Oh dear. What is it you've got?" asked the barman.

"50p."

Not only does he not know what a joke is, he's also suspected of not being able to read short words in thread titles. Poor sausage.

A bloke is a mad-keen cyclist and he goes out every Saturday morning without fail for a 50-mile ride. One Saturday morning he creeps out of bed so as not to wake his missus and gets geared up, but when he opens the back door to get his bike out he sees a driving blizzard, a howling gale and three-foot snowdrifts. Normally, this doesn't faze him and he'd go anyway, but this morning he's feeling his age a bit, so, just for once, he changes his mind, takes off his cycling gear and creeps back into bed.

He starts to feel a bit amorous so he starts caressing and cuddling his missus.

She responds appreciatively and says to him sleepily, "Can you believe that my husband would go out on his bike in this crap..."

I know there are differences in senses of humour but some of the 'jokes' are simply not jokes at all :-( If people simply stuck to the idea there would not be a problem.

BTW. I just got a refund for my broken ebike so hope to order another this week. Not a joke in itself but reminded me...

True story. I was in a bar in Stuttgart when a lady started to vacuum the floor. When she saw me she looked mortified, turned off the vacuum cleaner and said something I didn't understand in German. I explained I wax English and she apologised, in very good English, for disturbing me. I laughed it off and said it was no problem as I had been married for 30 years and was used to it.

Well, she cracked off laughing like I thought she would fall over. Not only that she brought a man over, presumably her partner, and, on telling him, he roared with laughter too. I was only in for a quick drink while I wandered round so when I had finished I went to pay but she would not let me. When I left she was still giggling. I don't know if the joke was on me but I was more than happy to brighten someone's day :-)

The other thing that tickled me in Stuttgart was that in the town centre there was a paved display showing a list of towns with names beginning "ST'. The English ones were Stockport and St. Helens. I suspect the designer did not know that St. is the abbreviation for Saint! Funnily enough I know someone who always refers to Stockport as Saint Ockport:-D

the designer should have known about the "St" -> "Saint" thing - as in German, the equivalent of "Saint", i.e. Sankt", is also abbreviated "St" ...

I once had a boss who always used two letters for the abbreviation of his first name instead of the usual one - his first name is "Stefan" (Stephen) ...

When we (his "slaves") talked about him we only spoke of "the holy >lastname<" (won't use the real name for data protection reasons ...

Yorkshireman went into a pub and saw a sign which said "All drinks 10p all night!"

He couldn't believe his luck. He filled his boots and hadn't even spent a quid!

Finally, he asked the publican, in a slurred voice, how come he could afford to sell drinks so cheaply.

"Well," the publican replied, "for years I struggled to keep the pub afloat, but always saw the role I had in supporting the community, so I kept going as best I could. Then, last month, I won £25 million on the lottery. That was my opportunity to put something back, hence the 10p drinks!"

"Blimey, that's a great story," said the Yorkshireman. "But I can't help noticing that bunch of blokes at the other end of the bar who haven't bought a drink all night!"

"Ah yes," replied the publican, "They're all Yorkshiremen who are waiting for Happy Hour when the drinks will be half-price..."

A chap went for a job on a building site. He was doing really well on the trial tasks that the foreman set him. The foreman said, “I just need to ask you one theory question - get it right, job’s yours. What’s the difference between a girder and a joist?”

"That's a funny question to ask a builder," said the chap, "but anyway, the answer is that Goethe wrote Faust and Joyce wrote Ulysses”.

A group of twenty year olds were on a night out and were trying to decided were to go next. One of them suggested the Dog & Duck because he new someone there who could them some weed.

Ten years on, they decided to have a reunion and chose the Dog & Duck because the barmaid there had really big knockers and always wore a low cut top.

When they turned forty, they chose the Dog & Duck because it was a real ale pub, recommended by CAMRA, and had some of the best tasting bitter in town.

For their reunion on reaching fifty, one of them suggested the Dog & Duck because he had heard that that the food was really good there.

Another ten years passed and the natural place for their reunion was the Dog & Duck because it had good parking, well lit and you could leave your car there without worry.

When they got to seventy, the Dog & Duck was suggested because it had a ramp up to the front door and the toilets were some of the best that they had found.

At eighty, one them said "Why don't we go to the Dog & Duck. We've never been there before".

I went to visit a friend in hospital but he was asleep when I got there. The nurse explained that he had a very restless night and it would be better to leave him to sleep.

I noticed that the patient in the next bed had no visitors and, as I had to wait the best part of an hour for my bus home, I decided to have a chat with him. It turned out that he was foreign and didn’t seem to speak much English but I did my best. After only a few minutes, he became quite agitated, snatched off the mask he was wearing, blurted out some unintelligible words and collapsed into unconsciousness. I called the nurse, who call the resuscitation team but it was too late – he had passed away.

I realised that I had heard his last words. It was my duty to try to fulfill his dying wish. I wrote down his words, phonetically, as best I could while they were still fresh in my mind. They didn’t sound French, Spanish or Italian but I thought that it could be German or Scandinavian. A German speaking friend suggested that it was more likely eastern European. After trying, Polish, Czech, Hungarian, and various others, with the aid of Google Translate, he eventually came up with a rough translation:-

“Get your chair off my oxygen pipe!”

A blacksmith was put on trial for a murder he did not commit
A guard from a village was found dead with a sword sticking through his chest. The blade was deemed to be the handiwork of the local blacksmith, however he had been away from the village at the time of the murder. Nonetheless, he was arrested shortly after returning and demanded his immediate release.

The town judge decided to charge the blacksmith with murder, arguing that he had forged the weapon that ended the guard’s life and was still responsible. Before being found guilty, the blacksmith pleaded for leniency, claiming not to have personally been a part of the murder. The judge only looked at him and stated before delivering his sentence for the murder, “Thou who smelt it, dealt it.”

   Well, there were a couple of guys who seemed to consider themselves above such menial work and often did only the minimum.

The GOP wants to test three agencies...
So a white nationalist is released in the capitol building and puts the FBI, CIA, and Florida State Police in charge of tracking down and returning the white nationalist.

The FBI goes in first, and after questioning all sources concludes that White Nationalists are everywhere and look like everyone else and claim the test is a hoax.

The CIA go in second and quickly decides it is a conspiracy theory and the FBI is in on it so they stop their investigation.

The Police go in and come out ten minutes later with a badly beaten up black man saying "ok, ok I'm a white Nationalist."

Q: What is the difference between capitalism and socialism?

A: In a capitalist society, man exploits man, and in a socialist one, it’s the other way around.

Donuel, this is a difficult task, especially as it's you, but allow me to apprise you of how to get at least a faint titter out of political jokes. Try these two:

"The word politics comes from 'poly', meaning 'many', and 'ticks', meaning 'bloodsucking parasites.'"

Geddit? Did I detect a faint titter?

If that didn't work, try this Ronnie Raygun one, allegedly a genuine quote:

"I have left orders to be awakened at any time in case of national emergency, even if I'm in a Cabinet meeting..."

See what the rules are? Simple! No twisted, bitter cynicism. An attempt at humour. If you make it up yourself (incredibly ill-advised in your case), try it out on a critical but sympathetic friend (if you have one) before trying it out in public. And one last thing you've yet to absorb: you cannot have a joke about Donald Trump. Go on, give it a whirl!

Towards the end of his premiership, prime minister Harold Macmillan conducted a cabinet purge, known at the time as the Night of the Long Knives. According to the Beeb's retrospective article:

The then-rising political star of the Liberal Party, Jeremy Thorpe, famously summed up the mood in Westminster when he said "greater love hath no man than this - that he lay down his friends for his life."

When an old Grandpa John, walked by.

And the one old granny yelled out saying, "We bet we can tell exactly how old you are."

John said, "There is no way you can guess it, you old fools."

The second old lady said, "Sure we can! - Just drop your pants and under shorts and we can tell your exact age."

Embarrassed just a little, but anxious to prove they couldn't do it, John dropped his drawers.

One of the old aunties asked him to first turn around a couple of times and to jump up and down several times. Then the three of them all piped up and said, "You're 87 years old!"

Standing with his pants down around his ankles, John asked, "How in the world did you guess?"

Slapping their knees and grinning from ear to ear, all the old girls happily yelled in unison...

So his relatives were really happy to hear that, then they went to his room.

"How are you doing? They asked him.

"Oh, I love it here," he replied. Everything's great, the food the company, the care, everything! But there's just one little thing..."

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'.

A Christian priest comes up to him, lays his hands on him and says, "My son, by the grace of Jesus Christ, you will walk today.

Sam smiles and replies "There is nothing wrong with my feet, Father, I am not paralyzed."

Then a rabbi came over and put a hand on Sam's shoulder saying, "By the will of Ashem, you will walk today, my son."

Sam, unamused, replies "There is nothing wrong with me."

Then a mullah comes over and touches him and says "If Allah wills it, you walk today."

Sam, now somewhat perturbed, replies "There is nothing wrong with me."

Then a Buddhist monk came over, bowed slightly and says "By Hammidah Buddha, you will walk today."

Now rudely Sam shouts "There is nothing wrong with me. You are all pandering charlatans!"

And with that Sam angrily leaves the seminar.

Upon going outside, Sam discovers his car has been stolen.

Hoping that she had done enough to obtain one of the coveted feminine hygiene products, local Florida woman Jessica Calderon filled out a 25-page application Friday in order to receive a tampon. The Florida legislature included the menstrual cycle as a leading cause of abortion in the killing of an unfertilized egg via tampons. Dr. Elmer Bubba Wilcox testified Thursday on the killing of unfertilized eggs and the all-male legislature amended their 6-week abortion ban in an emergency overnight session.

It just occurred to me that the opposite of Artificial Intelligence is …Real Stupid.

I hear they’ve made a new artificially intelligent Oreo?
It’s one smart cookie.


A man creates the smartest AI and presents it to the UN, boasting it can solve any problem

“Oh yeah?” Said the president of the United States. “Ok, how do we solve poverty?”

“Calculating,” said the AI, moments later printing out a sheet of paper for the UN to read.

Leaders from all over the world applied the proposals on the paper and in a month everyone starts living a better lives.

Impressed, they called for the AI’s assistance again and asked, “How do we create world peace?”

“Calculating,” said the AI and printed a sheet of mylar.

Leaders applied the writings, and in a month all wars and conflicts stopped. Everybody hates guns now and the world is full of love.

On the next UN gathering, curious about the purpose of life, they asked the AI, “Is there a God?”

“Calculating,” said the AI. This time though it didn’t give a response immediately.

In fact it took a whole day of processing before finally printing out platinum saying, “Insufficient resources, need more for the computation!”
“Okay, we’ll help out!” Said the leaders of America.

And they provided the AI with all of the advanced tech America can offer. Then they asked the question again.

“Calculating,” responded the AI.

But still, it responded, “Insufficient resources. Still need more for computation!”

“Ok, we’ll also pitch in!” Said the other leaders of the world, providing their tech and networks to the AI.
After the upgrade, the world leaders asked again to the AI, “Is there a God?”

The AI responded, “There is now.”

What jokes did he post, by the way, and if indeed he did post some, what percentage of his posts in this joke thread contain an actual joke? And how come you could manage "albeit" and "prior to" whilst omitting "on a daily basis"?

I think it was lost some time ago.

A vicar and his wife decided they wanted a new dog so he sets off to the rescue home, with his wifes reminder that although they would like a god with some religious connotatations he should not come home with a St Bernard.

At the rescue centre he descibes what they would like to the owner again stressing they did not want a St Bernard,

The chap says I've got just the dog for you, but it's not out here in the pound I've got it inside the house.

So the vicar and the owner walk into the house to be greeted by a beautiful little King Charles Spaniel, thats a bonny little dog says the vicar, a bit monarchal for my taste, but whats the religious connotation?

Watch this says the owner and calls out "Bible" to the dog which promptly trots off to his library and returned with a bible.

Fine says the vicar it can play fetch, but so can most dogs. No no say the owners watch this "Dueteronomy" he call, the dog flicks the pages to Dueteronomy. "Ruth" says the owner, the dog flicks the pages of the bible to Ruth. "Malachi" says the owner and once again the dog flicks the pages to Malachi.

Thats amazing says the vicar, how much do you want for it. £100 says the owner. Done says the vicar.

So with his new dog he sets of back to the manse to show his wife the new dog.

When he arrives his wife is delighted with bonny little dog and thinks it is absolutely wonderful but then she says to him I know it's a bonny little dog but what is the religious connotation Ah says the vicar watch this "Bible!" he shout and the dog runs off to his library and fetches back the bible.

Thats grand says his wife it can play fetch, oh thats nothing says the vicar watch this."Lamentations" says the vicar the dog flicks open the pages to Lamentation. "Exodus" again the dog gets to the right page, "Genesis" again the dog gets the right page.

That is astonishing says his wife, amazing. I wonder if it can do and normal doggy things. Don't know says the vicar I not tried any "Heel" the calls ................. the dog jumps up puts both it's paws on the heads and goes Ommmmmm!!

"Kragytrash has the charm of a Colonoscopy"

It's a very unpleasant trait, is misrepresenting someone's chosen moniker just because they've called you out. But never mind about that (I'm sure that Raggytash doesn't give a flying fart. He's male, by the way, not a difficult thing to have gleaned after all these years, but, as you're so up your own bum you wouldn't have bothered to notice). I had two colonoscopies a few years ago and the second one in particular I found to be highly amusing in retrospect. "I'm going to pump air up your bottom now so that we can see things more clearly." "Yeah, fine...". Two minutes later: "Nurse, I seriously need to fart..." "Don't worry, Mr Shaw, I'm used to it. Just let it all go..." "But your face is three inches from my arse..."

A Polish airman who had been flying with the RAF (Royal Air Force) during WW1 was giving a talk about the Battle of Britain in 1940 at a convent school. Describing the heat of a fight in early September he said to the girls "There were Fokkers to the left of us and there Fokkers to the right of us.

The Nun who was leading the class was startled and said to the girls " Girls! Girls! Fokkers were a type of plane used by the Germans!!"

Thats right said the Polish airman ....... but these Fokkers were in Messerschmitts!!

You need to accept, like the rest of us, that you are a total failure when it comes to making up jokes. Like the rest of us, stop trying to be clever and, instead, simply dredge up old jokes. There are millions out there. We need a laugh, not you struggling with your weird brand of humour. Your hanging gardens one had a germ of possibility, but it was so badly wrought...

Stop talking rubbish and tell us a joke. Preferably a real one that you haven't tried to make up. This not a thread for your irritating cod philosophies.

I walked into the pub with a pair of jump leads. The barman said, "I'll serve you but don't start anything..."

When I was a little boy I prayed every night for a new bike. After a long time I realised that God doesn't work that way, so I stole one then asked God for forgiveness.

How old Mildred stopped gossiping:
Mildred was the church gossip and self-appointed monitor of the church's morals. She kept sticking her nose into other people's business, even if several members did not approve of her extra-curricular activities. However, they feared her enough to maintain their silence.

Once, she accused a new member, Frank, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon.

She emphatically told Frank (and several others) that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing!

Frank, was a man of few words. He stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing and just went away.

Later that evening, Frank quietly parked his old pickup in front of Mildred's house ...

Got out and simply walked home...

And left his old pickup there all night.

Time for a joke I think!!   A warning to all in our area folks. Be careful about drink driving. Last night I was out for a few drinks and one thing led to another and I had a few too many beers and then went on to whisky. Not a good idea. Knowing I was over the limit I decided to leave my car at the pub and took a bus home, I passed the police check point, where they were pulling over drivers and performing breath tests, Because I was in a bus they just waved it past. I arrived home safely and no accident, which was a real surprise because I have never driven a bus before and I am not even sure where I got it from !!!!!

Mobile air monitoring has found pollutants nationwide that have formed the opposite chemical hormone to oxytocin, nazitocin. It was found at the funeral of a ten year old girl killed in a mass shooting. During the 10 year old's funeral another mass shooting killed 5 of the mourners and another 10 at the funerals of the 10 mourners etc. To date 30,000 have been shot. Gun enthusiasts blame the lack of air fresheners to combat the nazitocin in the air.

I think you may have something with the hardware incompatibility analogy, Don. Trouble is your transmitter is causing interference with everyone else's receivers and, unfortunately, drowning out a lot of the better exchanges. How about you limit your transmissions to those who understand what the fuck you are talking about?

I have an analogy that I have used before. If my local pub starts getting pestered by a knobhead who just talks bollocks all the time, the rgulars have a choice. Either they leave or they ask the landlord to throw him out. Sorry to have to tell you, but you are that knobhead and, before long, the management will realise. It is well and good saying ignore it but, to use another analogy, if a dog keeps shitting on your front lawn you can either ignore it or kick the dog.

The bottom line here in this thread (wot I myself started) is that what we want is levity. Lightheartedness. A good chortle, a smirk, even a groan. I give not a flying shite whether a given joke has been here two, three or four times before. When I was a kid, I exulted in telling the same joke over and over again. I'm delighted that my seven-year-old grandson is just the same. Donuel can put his "truth" into lots of other threads, many of which he has started himself. So I have to ask myself why he feels the need to pollute this thread with his so-called truth, and his terrible, terrible attempts to make up his own jokes. I can't make up my own jokes. I haven't got that kind of talent. I rely on Ken Dodd, Tim Vine, Tommy Cooper, even the Reader's bloody Digest. I can tell funny stories about things that have happened to me, etc., but they are not jokes. I don't want anyone in this thread getting all heavy, philosophical or moralising. There are threads aplenty where you can do that. This thread needs to be an oasis of more-or-less innocent fun in this fraught world of ours.

Or, to be more succinct, sod off, Donuel.

By way of postscript, here is my grandson's favourite joke.

Why did the little boy fall off his bike?

Because his mother threw a refrigerator at him.

(Just imagine that you're seven again when you read that joke. It works for me!)
