Look on the bright side Jim. I’ll take surreal and unfathomable jokes over the plain nasty ones any day.

But yeah, deep waters mate. I need a sounding line for some of these.

Re: The New Joke Thread

An old man walks into a bar, sits down, and starts crying.

The bartender asks, "What's wrong?"

The old man looks at the bartender through teary eyes and between sobs says, "I married a beautiful woman two days ago. She's a natural blonde, twenty-five, intelligent, a marvelous cook, a meticulous housekeeper, extremely sensitive to my wants and needs, very giving, my best friend, and intensely passionate in bed."

The bartender stares at the old man for a brief moment and says, "But that sounds great! You have what every man wants in a woman, so why are crying"?

The old man looks at the bartender and says, "I can't remember where I live!"

Re: The New Joke Thread

A man goes out drinking with his friends after promising his wife that he’d be home by midnight.

Midnight comes and goes. He finally arrives home just before 3am. As he walks in, he realises the cuckoo clock is about to go off.

With a flash of genius, he decides to coo another nine times to make it seem like it’s still midnight. Finished, he sneaks into bed, satisfied with his plan.

The next morning, he wakes up and finds that his wife isn’t mad at all.

“You sleep okay last night?” he asks cautiously.

“Fine,” the wife says. “But we need a new cuckoo clock.”

“Why?”

“Last night it cooed three times, then it yelled ‘Crap!’, cooed another six times and giggled. Then it cooed three more times, tripped over the cat and farted.”

Re: The New Joke Thread

^^ a big place to buy food who won't employ anyone to take your money!

Not sure if it's joke or not but it always feels like a joke that you have the privilege of handing over your money to a machine without a smile...

Re: The New Joke Thread

Dunno about you, YMMV, but I *always* smile at the machine as it takes my money.

You don't want to get on the wrong side of the machines. Watch Terminator if you need convincing....
