Re: The New Joke Thread

A general is being driven in a jeep through the desert on the way to a training exercise.

Out in the middle of nowhere, the jeep breaks down. The female jeep driver jumps out, opens the hood and starts working on the engine. The general, wanting to be helpful, finds a toolbox in the back and opens it. "Do you want a screwdriver?" he asks.

"Might as well have one, it's going to be a while before anyone shows up," she says!

Re: The New Joke Thread

A robber enters an old couple's home in the middle of the night...
As he is grabbing things, the couple wake up and confront him. The robber has a gun and tells them he would have left quietly but now he is gonna have to kill them.

"But before I do that," says the robber, "I want to know your names. What's your name, woman?"

"Linda," the wife replies meekly.

"Well, that's my mother's name. I can't kill you." Then he turns to the husband and says, "And what's your name?"

"My name is Frank, but everybody in town calls me Linda."

Re: The New Joke Thread

Sometimes when I'm sailing out on the bay I like to imagine that the guy who invented the umbrella was going to call it the brella.

But he hesitated.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Two plants are standing next to each other.

One of them says, "What did you have for lunch?"

The other says, "Oh, just a light meal"

Re: The New Joke Thread

And lastly for today I'll leave you with this to ponder...


How did the Mongol empire become so large?

Re: The New Joke Thread

A blind friend of mine gave a list of puns. I was reading it in Braille when I told him "These are gong to be bad. I can feel it."

Re: The New Joke Thread

The other day I walked into a pub in Chelsea (In NYC, not the real one in the UK) and some clown held the door open for me. At first I thought he might be gay, but then I realized it was just a nice jester.

I am reading a book about anti-gravity, and I have to tell you I can't put it down.

Re: The New Joke Thread

A friend sent this to me in early March. I told him I knew it meant early spring because if it was late spring, it would have been a leaf spring.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Oldie that only gets better with time...


An artist talks to his curator about his recent sales. Artist, "So? Did I sell anything?"

Curator, "You won't believe this: a man came by and asked if the value of the paintings will rise after the artist's death. I told him that they usually do. So he bought the entire gallery."

Artist, "Wow! That's great! who was he?"

Curator, "It was your doctor."

Re: The New Joke Thread

The recipe said, “Set the oven at 180 degrees.”

I have no idea what to do, because now the oven door is facing the wall.

At first I thought this was acute joke, but I realized I was being obtuse and looking at it from the wrong angle. At least now I've got it straight.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Instead of a swear jar, I have a negativity jar. Every time I have pessimistic thoughts, I put a dollar in.

It’s currently half empty.
