Adam and Eve Jokes
It's easy to make fun of the first two people to ever
Q: Where would man be without women?
A: In the garden of Eden.
Garden of Eden: where the first woman ate the
first man out of house and home.
Adam knew all the languages in the world.
Q: What did Adam say to his wife the day
A: It's Christmas, Eve.
Adam at one point was the smartest man in the world.
Q: Why did God create woman last?
A: Because He didn't want to be told how to do it.
Eve was the most beautiful woman in the world.
How could Adam and Eve be in their "birthday suits"
when they were never born?
The most "new world records" was set by Adam.
Adam and Eve had an ideal marriage. He didn't have
to hear about all the men she could have married, and she didn't
have to hear about the way her mother cooked.
TEN REASONS GOD CREATED EVE (This is under a Joke
section: these jokes aren't factual, but are meant to entertain)
10. God worried that Adam would always be lost in the garden because
he knew men would never ask directions.
9. God knew that Adam would one day need someone to hand him the TV
remote because men don't want to see what's on television, they want
to see WHAT ELSE is on television.
8. God knew that Adam would never buy a new fig leaf when the seat
wore out and therefore would need Eve to get one for him.
7. God knew that Adam would never make a doctors appointment for
6. God knew that Adam would never remember which night was garbage
5. God knew that if the world was to be populated there would have
to be someone to bear them, because men would never be able to
4. As "Keeper of the Garden" Adam would never remember where he put
3. The Scripture account of creation indicates that Adam needed
someone to blame his troubles on when God caught him hiding in the
2. As the Bible says, "It is not good for man to be alone." He only
ends up getting himself in trouble.
1. When God finished the creation of Adam, he stepped back,
scratched his head and said, "I can do better than that."
Adam was in the garden of Eden
bored one day. So he asks God for a companion someone to keep
him company. God replies, "how about I create something called
a woman? She will be absolutely beautiful, completely breath
taking. You'll find yourself irresistibly attracted to her.
She will always be optimistic and cheerful. Always happy to serve
you. She will cook and clean for you, give you massages, tell you
how amazing you are, watch sports with you, and never nag or
Adam responds with great joy, "wow, that's amazing! I would
God. "Well it's going to cost you."
Adam. "How much?"
God, "an arm and a leg."
Adam, "well. . . what can I get for a rib?"

sandwich, pulls out a gun, and shoots out the restaurant's windows.
As the panda stands up to go, the owner shouts, "Hey! Where are you going?
You just shot my windows out and you didn't pay for your sandwich!"
The panda yells back at the owner, "Hey man, I'm a PANDA! Look it up!"
The owner opens his dictionary and sees the following definition for

- A man has been lost and walking in the desert for about five days. One hot
day--actually, they're all hot--he comes to the home of a preacher. Tired
and weak, he crawls up to the house and collapses on the doorstep. The
preacher takes him in and nurses him back to health. Feeling better, the man
asks the preacher for directions to the nearest town. The preacher tells him
the directions, and offers to lend him his horse to make it. The preacher
says, "However, there is a special thing about this horse. You have to say
'Thank God' to make it go and 'Amen' to make it stop."
Anxious to get to town, the man says, "Sure,
okay" and gets on the horse. He says, "Thank God" and sho 'nuff, the horse
starts walking. A bit later he says louder, "Thank God, thank God," and the
horse starts trotting. Feeling really brave, the man say, "Thank God! Thank
God! THANK GOD!" and the horse is soon up to a full run!
About then he realizes he's heading for a huge cliff and yells "Whoa!" But
the horse doesn't even slow! It's coming up REAL QUICK and he's doing
everything he can to make the horse stop. "Whoa, stop, hold on!" Finally he
The horse stops a mere two inches from the cliff's edge, almost throwing him
over its head. The man, panting and heart racing, wipes the sweat from his
face and leans back in the saddle. "Oh!" he says, gasping for air, "Thank
- A farmer was selling his horse to a city man. The farmer was
saying, "I got to warn you, this horse don't look so good."
"What are you talking about? This is the finest looking horse I have
ever seen! I'll buy it!" the city guy said.
So the farmer agreed to sell the horse. A week later the city guy came
back complaining, "this horse that you sold me is blind!"
"That's what I told you before you bought it," shrugged the farmer, "that
horse don't look so good."
- Farmer Joe decided his injuries from the accident were serious enough to
the trucking company responsible for the accident to court. In court the
trucking company's fancy lawyer was questioning farmer Joe.
"Didn't you say at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine,"' asked the lawyer.
Farmer Joe responded, "Well, I'll tell you what happened. I had just loaded
my favorite mule Bessie into the..."
"I didn't ask for any details," the lawyer interrupted, "just answer the
question. Did you not say at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine!'?"
Farmer Joe said, "Well, I had just got Bessie into the trailer and I was
down the road..."
The lawyer interrupted again and said, "Judge, I am trying to establish the

the lawyer, "I'd like to hear what he has to say."
Joe thanked the Judge and proceeded, "Well, as I was saying, I had just

real bad and didn't want to move. However, I could hear ol' Bessie moaning
groaning. I knew she was in terrible shape just by her groans. Shortly after

groaning so he went over to her. After he looked at her, he took out his gun

The guy goes into the backyard and sees a black mutt just sitting there.
"You talk?" he asks.
"Yep," the mutt replies.
"So, what's your story?"
The mutt looks up and says, "Well, I discovered my gift of talking pretty
young and I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA about my gift,
and in no time they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms
with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be
eavesdropping. I was one of their most valuable spies eight years running. The jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any
younger and I wanted to settle down. So I signed up for a job at the airport
to do some undercover security work, mostly wandering near suspicious
characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings there and

- A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in Africa, taking her
faithful, aged poodle named Cuddles along for the company. One day the
poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long Cuddles discovers that
she's lost. Wandering about, she notices a leopard heading rapidly in
her direction with the intention of having lunch. The old poodle thinks,
"Oh, oh! I'm in trouble now!"
Noticing some bones on the ground close by, she immediately settles down to
chew on the bones with her back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard
is about to leap, the old poodle exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one
delicious leopard! I
wonder if there are any more around here?"
Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of
terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. "Whew!" says the
leopard, "That was close! That old poodle nearly had me!"
Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby
tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for
protection from the leopard. So off he goes, but the old poodle sees him
heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something must
The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a
deal for himself with the leopard. The young leopard is furious at being
made a fool of and says, "Here, monkey, hop on my back and see what's going
to happen to that conniving canine!"
The old poodle sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back and
thinks, "What am I going to do now?", but instead of running, the dog sits
down with her back to her attackers, pretending she hasn't seen them yet,
and just when they
get close enough to hear, the old poodle says: "Where's that monkey? I sent

"Sir," says the owner, "this parrot is a very special parrot. If you pull
the green string, he speaks Spanish. If you pull the red string, he speaks
"Wow!" says the man. And then he gets curious. "What happens if I pull both
strings at once?"
The parrot screeches "I fall of, you idiot!"
- A farming couple had a friend come and visit.
They took their friend on a tour of their farm. A three-legged pig
caught his attention.
"Why does this pig only have three legs?" asked the friend.
"This pig saved our farm!" answered Mrs. Farmer.
"How did he do that?"
"Well, one night the barn was struck by lightening, and started on fire.
That pig started squealing so loud that it woke us up and we were able to
rescue the animals from the barn and put out the fire," answered Mrs.
"That's pretty impressive, but how did that pig lose his last leg?"
Mr. Farmer answered, "a pig that special you don't eat all at once."
Do you ever have that "funny" feeling when you
are on planes? These jokes should be funny and are about airplanes.
- Announcement in a airplane: "We are pleased to announce to you
that you are participating in the first fully-automatic flight. There
are no pilots aboard this plane. This plane is run only on the perfect
technology of computers. With this in mind, enjoy your flight, since
nothing can go wrong...go wrong...go wrong...go wrong...wrong go...wrong
- A pilot's voice goes over the intercom on an airplane. "We are now
half-way between London, England and New York. I hope you are enjoying
this smooth, peaceful flight over the Atlantic Ocean."
No more than two minutes pass when the pilot's voice comes over the intercom
again, "I want to let you know that one of our four engines has broken down.
Don't be alarmed, we are perfectly safe. We will just arrive at our
destination a half an hour late."
Soon after that, again the pilot's voice is heard
on the intercom, "A second engine has just broken down. We are perfectly
safe flying with the remaining two engines, but we will be another hour and a
half late at our destination."
A few minutes later, the all-too-familiar voice of
the pilot came over the intercom, "Due to the loss of our third engine, we will
be four and a half hours late when we arrive at our destination."
When a passenger saw the fourth engine go down, he
groaned, "Oh, shoot. Now we will probably be up here all day!"
- A man hijacked a plane. Doused in gasoline, he threatened to set
himself on fire. He was immediately escorted from the plane.
There was a rule against smoking on domestic flights.
- "Welcome aboard Southwest Flight XXX, to YYY. To operate your seat belt,
insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. It works just like
every other seat belt, and if you don't know how to operate one, you
probably shouldn't be out in public unsupervised. In the event of a sudden
loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop
screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small
child traveling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If
you are traveling with two small children, decide now which one you love
more. Weather at our destination is 50 degrees with some broken clouds, but
they'll try to have them fixed before we arrive. Thank you, and remember,
nobody loves you, or your money, more than Southwest Airlines."

stewardess looks at them and says, "I'm sorry, gentlemen, only one carrion
allowed per passenger."
- Passengers on a small commuter plane are waiting for the flight to
leave. They're getting a little impatient, but the airport staff has assured
them that the pilots will be there soon, and the flight can take off
immediately after that.
The entrance opens, and two men walk up the aisle, dressed in pilots'
uniforms -- both are wearing dark glasses, one is using a seeing-eye dog,
and the other is tapping his way up the aisle with a cane. Nervous laughter
spreads through the cabin; but the men enter the cockpit, the door closes,
and the engines start up.
The passengers begin glancing nervously around, searching for some sign that
this is just a little practical joke. None is forthcoming.
The plane moves faster and faster down the runway, and people at the window
realize that they're headed straight for the water at the edge of the
As it begins to look as though the plane will never take off, that it will
plow into the water, panicked screams fill the cabin -- but at that moment,
the plane lifts smoothly into the air. The passengers relax and laugh
sheepishly, and soon they have all retreated into their magazines, secure in
the knowledge that the plane is in good hands.
Up in the cockpit, the co-pilot turns to the pilot and says, "You know,
Tony, one of these days they're going to scream too late, and we're all
You don't like these kind of jokes? Well
too bad, beggars can't be choosers (or can they???).
A beggar sat on the side of the street crying, "Money for the blind!"
A stranger stopped and said to the beggar, "It must be awful being blind.
But look on the bright side, at least you aren't lame."
"Yeah," the beggar agreed, "when I was lame, I got way less money!"
There was once a beggar that everyone thought that they could take
advantage of. When somebody offered him either a nickel or a dime, the
beggar would always take the nickel. When someone asked the beggar why
he wouldn't take any dimes, the beggar replied, "If I took the dime, people
would stop giving me nickels."
A passing stranger felt sorry for a man next to a sign "I'm blind, please help."
He pulled out his wallet and tossed the beggar a bill "here, have a twenty."
"That's not a twenty, that's a five."
- Did you know that there is a new paint color out? It is called
blonde. It's not very bright, but it sure attracts a lot of attention!
- There IS easier things than finding an intelligent blonde: like nailing jello to a tree, for instance.
A blonde decides to learn and try horse back riding unassisted without
prior experience or lessons. She mounts the horse with great effort,
and the tall shiny horse springs into motion.
It gallops along at a steady and rhythmic pace, but the blonde begins to
slip from the saddle. Out of shear terror, she grabs for the horses
neck, but she slides down the side of the horse anyway. The horse
gallops along seemingly oblivious to its slipping rider.
Finally, giving up her frail grip, she leaps away from the horse to try
and throw herself to safety.
Unfortunately, her foot has become entangled in the stirrup. She is
now at the mercy of the horse's pounding hooves as her head is struck
against the ground again and again. As her head is battered against
the ground, she is mere moments away from unconsciousness or even death when
Frank, the Wal-mart manager, runs out to shut the horse off.
Q: What do you do if a blonde throws a grenade at you?
A: Pull the pin and throw it back. (In the name of good
humour and to lessen the violence of the joke, we'll just say that you
and the blonde are just pretending to be in a war).
- Once a blonde came up to the river. She yelled to the person
across to the other side "how do you get to the other side of the river?"
The blonde across the river called back "you are on the other side of the

the country to see Disney World in Florida.
As they approached it and got onto the final stretch of highway, they saw a
sign saying "Disney World Left!"
After thinking for a minute, the driver blonde said "Oh well!" and started
driving back home.
- A blonde, out of money and
down on her luck after buying air at a real bargain, needed money
desperately. To raise cash, she decided to kidnap a child and hold him for
She went to the local playground, grabbed a kid randomly, took her behind a
building, and told her, "I've kidnapped you."
She then wrote a big note saying, "I've kidnapped your kid. Tomorrow
morning, put $10,000 in a paper bag and leave it under the apple tree next
to the slides on the south side of the playground. Signed, A blonde."
The blonde then pinned the note to the kid's shirt and sent him home to show
it to his parents. The next morning the blonde checked, and sure enough, a
paper bag was sitting beneath the apple tree. The blonde looked in the bag
and found the $10,000 with a note that said, "How could you do this to a
- Last year I replaced all the windows in my house with that expensive
double-pane energy efficient kind, and today, I got a call from the
contractor who installed them. He was complaining that the work had
been completed a whole year ago and I still hadn't paid for them.
Hellloooo, just because I'm blonde doesn't mean that I am automatically
stupid. So, I told him just what his fast talking sales guy had told
ME last year, namely, that in ONE YEAR these windows would pay for
themselves! Helllooooo? It's been a year! (I told him.)
There was only silence at the other end of the line, so I finally just hung
up.... He never called back. Guess I won that stupid argument. I
bet he felt like an idiot.

- One night, a mugger with a gun jumped into the path of a well dressed man
and stuck the gun to his ribs. "Give me your money," he ordered.
"You cant do this!" The man proclaimed, "I'm a member of parliament!"
"Okay, then give me my money"
- Two criminals made a big stack of artificial money. The bills
looked really authentic. They were the right texture, and the detail
of the bill was exquisite. There was only one problem with the bill,
they had accidentally made 18-dollar bills. One man had an idea on how
to save their operation. "We'll go to some town in the hills.
Those towns are so in the middle of nowhere and they have no idea of what is
going on in the real world."
So they drove quite a while until they got to a spot seemingly in the middle
of nowhere. They did their best to look for a town with no
electricity. They entered the general store of the village and strode
up to the counter. In the corner of the store there was a table with a
group of old men playing cards. One of the old men got up and went
behind the table. "What can I do ya for, boys?"
"Actually, we were wondering if you could give us change for an 18-dollar
bill," the first man said casually. He gave a thumbs up sign to his
partner as the old man made his way to the till.
The man opened the drawer and asked the two criminals, "now, did you want
your change in three sixes or two nines?"

The man said, "I choose to die of old age!"

- The Mafia was looking for a new man to make weekly collections from all the
private businesses that they were "protecting."
Feeling the heat from the police force, they decided to use a deaf person for
this job. If he were to get caught, he wouldn't be able to communicate to
the police what he was doing.
Well, on his first week, the deaf collector picks up over $50,000. He gets
greedy, decides to keep the money and stashes it in a safe place.
The Mafia soon realizes that their collection is late, and sends some of their
hoods after the deaf collector. The hoods find the deaf collector and ask
him where the money is. The deaf collector can't communicate with them, so
the Mafia drags the guy to an interpreter. The Mafia hood says to the
interpreter, "Ask him where the money is."
The interpreter signs, "Where's the money?"
The deaf signs in reply, "I don't know what you're talking about." The
interpreter tells the hood, "He says he doesn't know what you're talking about."
The hood pulls out a large gun and places it in the ear of the deaf collector.
"NOW ask him where the money is."
The interpreter signs, "Where is the money?"
The deaf man signs in reply, "The $50,000 is in Central Park, hidden in the
third tree stump on the left from the West 78th Street gate."
The interpreter says to the hood, "He says he still doesn't know what you're
talking about, and doesn't think you have the guts to pull the trigger."
- Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he
put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying "Free to good home, You
want it -- you take it."
For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it.
He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal - looks to
good to be true - so he changed the sign to read "Fridge for sale $50."
The next day someone stole it.
- Little Johnny's kindergarten class was on a field trip to their local police
station where they saw pictures tacked to a bulletin board of the 10 most wanted
criminals. One of the youngsters pointed to a picture and asked if it really was

very badly to capture him."
Little Johnny asked, "Why didn't you keep him when you took his picture?"

- A man who suffered a serious heart attack and had to have surgery. He

"Do you have money?"

Doctor: Turn him around so it looks like he was just arriving!
- A young doctor was just setting up his first office.
His secretary told him there was a man to see him. The doctor wanted
to make the man think that he was successful and very busy. So he told
his secretary to show the man in and at that moment he picked up his phone
and pretended to be having a conversation with a patient.
The man waited patiently until the "conversation" was completed.
Once he hung up, the doctor asked, "Can I help you?"
To which the man replied "No, I'm just here to connect your telephone."
- A man was on deaths door - the doctors pulled him through
- A man was beginning to believe that his wife had
developed a hearing problem. However, he didn't want to ask his wife
about it as to potentially offend her. So during his visit with his
doctor, he asked him what he could do to test out if his wife's hearing was
still good without making it too obvious. "You go to her and talk to
her from forty feet away. Then you move closer to thirty feet and ask
the same question. Move in closer and closer until you are sitting by
her, then you will know from how far she can hear you."
So the man went home and called out to his wife from the door, "What's for
dinner, dear?" She didn't respond, so he moved closer and asked again.
Still no response, so he moved even closer. And when she still didn't
respond, he sat by her and asked, "what's for dinner, dear?"
She turned to him exasperated and replied, "For the fifth time, chicken is

An engineering student was walking to his dorm from
classes one day when a toad jumped into his path. The frog
surprisingly spoke, "stop, good sir. If you kiss me I'll turn
into a princess."
The engineering student thought a while, then stooped up to pick up
the frog. Instead of kissing the frog, however, the
engineering student proceeded to place the frog into his backpack.
The toad cried in horror, "stop, kiss me and I can be your wife!
Or your girlfriend!"
The student ignored the frog's plea's and only let it out once he
had reached his dorm, "maybe you didn't want anybody to see you
doing something weird in public," the toad said, "will you now kiss
me and turn me into a woman of your dreams?"
"Nah," came the reply, "I'm an engineering student. I don't
have time for any relationships right now. But having a frog
is pretty cool."
Five engineers and five mathematicians happened to
be planning on going on the same train together. As they were
waiting for the train, the intellectuals got into a good-natured
discussion on the importance of their professions. The
mathematicians said that counting was everything, and the engineers
countered saying you needed to know what to do with what is given to
you. When the engineers revealed that they only had one train
ticket out of the five of them, the mathematicians laughed at them
for not being able to count.
As they got on the train the mathematicians were sure that all but
one of the engineers would be kicked off the train. However,
when the ticket collector started making his rounds, all the
engineers squeezed into a bathroom stall. The ticket collector
didn't ignore the stall, but knocked on it saying "ticket please!"
The engineers pushed their single ticket under the crack in the door
and the ticket collector was on his way. Needless to say the
mathematicians were a bit disappointed.
On the return trip the mathematicians happened to be once again
travelling with the engineers. Now knowing the engineer's
trick, the mathematicians smartly figured that one ticket was
cheaper than five. So the mathematicians only brought one
ticket along. They were shocked when the engineers didn't have
any tickets with them. Figuring this was the end of the
engineers, the mathematicians confidently strode into the train.
When they heard the ticket collector was coming, they piled into the
bathroom stall. One of the engineers strode up to the bathroom
door and knocked on it, saying, "ticket please!"
A man was
enjoying a peaceful fishing trip, when he noticed another boat not far
way. The boat was approached his, and a the man inside it asked,
"How is the fishing?"
"Not bad, I already caught fifteen fish," came the reply.
"Really. Do you know who you're talking to?"
"No, who might you be?"
"The game warden."
"Do you know who you're talking to?"
"I don't rightly know," answered the game warden.
"The biggest liar in the county."
Two deacons wanted to welcome Greg, a new
member of their church. They decided it would be a good idea to
take him fishing.
The three men had just rowed a little ways into the lake when one of the
deacons exclaimed, "I forgot my tackle-box!" He then stepped out
of the boat and walked on top of the water to the shore.
The other deacon then said, "I forgot my fishing-rod," and walked on top
of the water to the shore. Greg was worried that he was obligated
to walk on to of the water as well. "Uh...I forgot my fishing
license!" And with that, Greg stepped out of the boat and into the
While watching Greg swim to shore, one deacon said to the other, "I
think we should have told him where the rocks were."
Be ye fishers of men: You catch 'em; He'll
A man was leaving a river well known for its
fishing. He had an ice box full of water and live fish when a game
warden came around.
The game warden asked the man, "Do you have a license to catch those
"Naw, my friend, I ain't got no license. These here are my pet
"Yep. Every night I take these fish down to the river and let 'em
swim' round for a while. Then I whistle and they jump right back
into this ice chest and I take 'em home."
"That's crazy! Fish can't do that!"
The man looked at the game warden for a moment and then said, "It's the
truth. I'll show you. It really works."
"Okay, I've GOT to see this!"
The man poured the fish into the river and stood and waited. After
several minutes, the game warden turned to him and said, "Well?"
"Well, what?" said the man.
"When are you going to call them back?"
"Call who back?"
- She loved them but unfortunately they had always had a very embarrassing
and somewhat lively reaction to her. Then one day she met a guy and
fell in love. When it became apparent that they would marry she
thought to herself, "He is such a sweet and gentle man, he would never go
for this to carry on." So she made the supreme sacrifice and gave up beans.
Some months later her car broke down on the way
home from work. Since she lived in the country she called her husband
and told him that she would be late because she had to walk home. On
her way she passed a small diner and the odour of the baked beans was more
than she could stand. Since she still had miles to walk, she figured
that she would walk off any ill effects by the time she reached home.
So, she stopped at the diner and before she knew it, she had consumed three
large orders of baked beans.
All the way home she putt-putted. And upon arriving home she felt
reasonably sure she could control it. Her husband seemed excited to
see her and exclaimed delightedly, "Darling, I have a surprise for dinner
tonight!" He then blindfolded her and lead her to her chair at the
table. She seated herself and just as he was about to remove the
blindfold from his wife, the telephone rang. He made her promise not
to touch the blindfold until he returned. He then went to answer the
The baked beans she had consumed were still affecting her and the pressure
was becoming almost unbearable, so while her husband was out of the room she
seized the opportunity, shifted her weight to one leg and let it go.
It was not only loud, but it smelled like a fertilizer truck running over a
skunk in front of a pulpwood mill.
She took her napkin and fanned the air vigorously. Then, she shifted
to the other cheek and ripped three more, which reminded her of cabbage
cooking. Keeping her ears tuned to the conversation in the other room,
she went on like this for another ten minutes. When the phone
farewells signalled the end of her freedom, she fanned the air a few more
times with her napkin, placed it on her lap and folded her hands upon it,
smiling contently to herself.
She was the picture of innocence when her husband
returned. Apologizing for taking so long, he asked her if she peeked, and
she assured that she did not. At this point he removed the blindfold, and
she was surprised!!! There were twelve dinner guests seated around the
table to wish her a Happy Birthday!!!

The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and
complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.
Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of
celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth,
Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies and
Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours
of every kind. Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described
Doughboy as a figure who never know how much he was kneaded.
Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but in his later life was filled
with turnovers, and critics often panned him. He was not considered a
very 'smart cookie', wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes.
Despite being a little flaky at times he still, as a crusty old man, was
considered a roll model for millions.
Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough, two children, John Dough
and Jane Dough, plus one they had in the oven. He is also survived
by his elderly father, Pop Tart. The funeral was held at 3:50 for
about 20 minutes. (this joke sounds better heard then read)
- A man observed a sign in the window of a restaurant that read Unique
Breakfast, so he walked in and sat down.
The waitress brought him his coffee and asked him what he wanted.
"What's your Unique Breakfast?" he asked.
"Baked tongue of chicken!" she proudly replied.
"Baked tongue of chicken? Baked tongue of chicken! Do you have any idea how
disgusting that is? I would never even consider eating anything that came
out of a chicken's mouth!" he fumed.
Undaunted, the waitress asked, "What would you like, then?"
"Just bring me some scrambled eggs," the man replied.
- A farmer in the country has a watermelon patch
and upon inspection he discovers that some of the local kids have been
helping themselves to a feast.
The farmer thinks of ways to discourage this profit-eating situation. So he
puts up a sign that reads: "WARNING! ONE OF THESE WATERMELONS CONTAINS
He smiled smugly as he watched the kids run off the next night without
eating any of his melons.
The farmer returns to the watermelon patch a week later to discover that
none of the watermelons have been eaten, but finds another sign that reads: "NOW THERE ARE TWO!"
- A guy comes into a coffee shop and places his
order: "I want 3 flat tires & a pair of headlights"
The waitress, not wanting to appear stupid, goes to the kitchen & asks the
cook, "This guy out there just ordered 3 flat tires & a pair of headlights.
What does he think, this is an auto parts store?!"
"No," the cook says, "3 flat tires means 3 pancakes & a pair of headlights
is 2 eggs sunny side up."
"Oh," says the waitress. She thinks about this and then she spoons up
a bowl of beans and gives it to the customer.
The guy says "What are the beans for?"
The waitress replies "I thought that, while you're waiting for the flat
tires & headlights, you might want to gas up."

- HOW TO WRITE GOODER
1. Avoid alliteration. Always.
Here are several very important but often forgotten rules of English:
2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
3. Avoid clichés like the plague. (They're old hat.)
4. Employ the vernacular.
5. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
6. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.
7. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.
8. Contractions aren't necessary.
9. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.
10. One should never generalize.
11. Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: "I hate
quotations. Tell me what you know."
12. Comparisons are as bad as clichés.
13. Don't be redundant; don't use more words than necessary; it's highly
14. Be more or less specific.
15. Understatement is always best.
16. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
17. One-word sentences? Eliminate.
18. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.
19. The passive voice is to be avoided.
20. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.
21. Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.
22. Who needs rhetorical questions?

Gates of Heaven
The common fictional picture of St. Peter standing at
the gate, is like I said, fictional. Peter was a follower of
Jesus, an apostle. He wasn't some being to be worshiped, he would
hate this and point to Jesus. As an additional note, the Gates of
Heaven (and there is more than one according to the bible), will look so
stunning, and they will always be open. The actual judging takes
place before one reaches these gates. The nonChristians probably
won't even have the privilege of even glancing at the
marvellous/spectacular view of the Gates of Heaven. That being
said, these jokes are well out of any kind of true context.
A lady who was on her way to heaven met up with St.
Peter at the gate. "I'm sorry," said St. Peter, "but you'll
have to pass a test in order to get into heaven. Don't worry,
its not that hard of the test. You need to spell the word
"L-O-V-E," the lady spelled out rather easily.
"Good, your in. Can you do me a favour? I need to go
back and get something so will you just stand here and do my job for
"Sure," the lady agreed. St. Peter left and pretty soon the
lady saw a man coming up the road. When the man got close, the
lady said, "I'm sorry, but you'll have to pass a test in order to
get into heaven. Don't worry, its only a spelling test."
"What word do I have to spell?"
"Czechoslovakia," the lady said to her husband.
A man met up with St. Peter at the gate to heaven.
"I'm sorry," said St. Peter, "but you can't take anything with you
past this point. If you don't abide by those rules, than
you're going to have to go to the other place."
"NO!" the man scream in anguish. "Can't I carry this one bag
"Sorry, either you let go of that, or you can't come here."
"Fine then, I won't go here. I can't leave my bag."
"You're loss. Before you are escorted to the other place, do
you mind showing me what's in that bag? I'm rather curious
what you're not willing to give up in order to get into heaven."
The man shrugged and started opening the bag that was twice as big
as he was (literally). Out spilled more gold than you have
seen in your entire life.
"PAVEMENT!!??!! You were willing to go to hell for
One day in 1999, St. Peter
called Bill Clinton, Colon Powell, and Bill Gates up to heaven.
He said to them, "I've called you here because you are the three
most influential spokespersons in the world. Go back to Earth
and tell everyone there is a God, but he's blowing up the world
Clinton went back and said, "Fellow Americans, I have some good
news and some bad news. The good news is there is a God, and the
bad news is he's blowing up the world tomorrow."
Colon Powell went back and
said, "I have some bad news and some good news. The bad news is
there is a God and the good news is he's blowing up the world
Then, Bill Gates went down,
gathered up all his computer buddies on the internet and said,
"I have some good news and some good news. The first part of the
good news is I've been voted one of the three most influential
spokespersons in the world. The other good news is the Y2K
problem is solved."
Forrest Gump eventually died of a shrimping
accident. St. Peter was at the pearly gates to greet him.
"Hello Forrest, its good to see you in real life.
Unfortunately, I have some bad news for you. Because of the
lack of space in heaven, we are required to give an entrance test.
Are you up for the challenge?"
"I reckon if I'm not ready now, I won't ever be ready."
"Okay then, here's the first question. Can you name me all the
days of the week?"
"Sure, that's easy. Yesterday, today, and tomorrow."
"Well...I suppose that works. The next question is a bit
harder. How many seconds are there in a year?"
"That's not too hard. There's twelve of them."
"Twelve?" St. Peter asked puzzled, "How are there only twelve?"
"Its simple really, January second, February second, March second,
and so on."
"Fine, this is the last question. It's a bit difficult,
however. What is God's first name?"
"Andy!!?! Where did you here that?"
"Andy walks with me, Andy talks with me, Andy tells me I am his
"You've just barely passed the test. Before I change my mind:
run, Forrest run!"
A man appeared before St. Peter at the pearly gates.
"Have you ever done anything of particular merit?" St. Peter asked.
"Well, I can think of one thing," the man offered. "Once, I came
upon a gang of bikers, who were threatening a young woman. I
directed them to leave her alone, but they wouldn't listen.
So, I approached the largest and most heavily tattooed biker and
smacked him on the head, kicked his bike over, ripped out his nose
ring, and threw it on the ground. I yelled, 'Now, back off!!
Or you'll answer to me!'"
St. Peter was impressed, "When did this happen?"
"Just a couple minutes ago."
A minister dies and is waiting in line at the Pearly
Gates. Ahead of him is a guy dressed in sunglasses, a loud
shirt, leather jacket, and jeans.
Saint Peter says to this guy, "Who are you, so that I may know
whether to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?"
The guy replies, "I'm Joe Cohen, taxi driver, of Noo Yawk City."
Saint Peter consults his list. He smiles and says to the taxi
driver, "Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter the
Kingdom of Heaven."
The taxi driver goes into Heaven with his robe and staff, and it's
the minister's turn. He stands erect and booms out, "I am
Joseph Snow, pastor of Saint Mary's for the last 43 years."
Saint Peter consults his list. He says to the minister, "Take
this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven."
"Just a minute!" says the minister. "That man was a taxi driver, and
he gets a silken robe and golden staff. How can this be?"
"Up here, we work by results," says Saint Peter. "While you
preached, people slept. While he drove, people prayed."
A small girl came up to her mother one day, and
asked, "Mom, don't men go to heaven?"
Slightly amused, and curious the mother asked, "why do you ask?"
"Because in all the pictures of angels, none of them have any
beards. Don't any men make it to heaven?"
"Yes dear," the mother answered, but then quickly, "but it's always
by a close shave."
Back to Top
I originally shied away from putting genie jokes on my
website. The reason being, is that genies remind of demons.
Any being with supernatural power comes from either God or the Devil.
And since there is nothing Christ-like about genies, they must be
demonic. This knowledge in mind, these are jokes, they aren't
meant to be true, but funny.
A group of three friends were in a small rowboat
floating around in the middle of the ocean. They were losing
hope of ever seeing land. They spotted a bottle floating in
the ocean, so they rowed their way towards it. A bit of effort
was needed to pop out the corkscrew in the top of the bottle.
But since they didn't know what possible valuable substance may be
inside of it, and since they had nothing better to do, they
persevered in opening it.
"Poof!" Out of the bottle came out a genie. "HELLO FRIENDS!"
The genie greeted the three young men warmly, "I'm not sure if you
know this, but I am a genie and you just released me. Because
you have did me this favour, I will grant you each one wish."
"Me first," declared the first young man, "I wanna go home!"
And sure enough, he was teleported to his home.
Seeing how instantaneously the first man disappeared, the second one
thought before speaking, "Forget home, I want to appear in Las Vegas
with ten million dollars in spending money!" As he wished, he
was zapped to Las Vegas with all the money he could hope fore.
The third guy wasn't as much of a thinker, "I'm kind of lonely now,
I want them both back!"
A young man was just wandering around when he
stumbled over a magic lamp. Out of this lamp popped out a
genie. The genie greeted him, "congratulations, you found me!
You now get three wishes!"
Now the young man was a greedy man, and used up his first wish
instantaneously, "I wish I was a billionaire."
"But of course," replied the genie, "just to make things easier the
money appeared in your bank account."
"Um, okay," the man wanted to actually see his next wish, so he was
a bit more careful. "Right here in front of us I want you to make me
the largest mansion in the world, belonging to me!"
"Your wish is my command," replied the genie, and the mansion
appeared the man just as he wished.
The man knew that this money and mansion could be wasted away quite
easily if he was foolish, so he stated his final wish, "I want to be
irresistible to all women."
"Poof!" The man turned into a pile of chocolate.
You ever wonder why nobody in the movies wishes for
A couple in their sixties were celebrating their
fortieth wedding anniversary. As one of the gifts, they
received a magic lamp. While the woman was off talking to
other people, the man snuck over to this present and rubbed it.
Out warped out a genie. The old man said, "shh... quiet now.
I figure I should get at least one wish. I love my wife, but I
wish I was married to someone thirty years younger than me."
With a nod of the genie, the old man was transformed into a
ninety-two year old!

Grocery Store Jokes
I decided instead of having a
different section for each one of the places I worked at, I'll save
myself a minimal amount of effort and make things a bit more organized
by making it all one big section. The following jokes one may be
relate to if you worked at any grocery (or retail in general) store.
You get asked, "do you work
here?" when in full uniform (see my comic "Stupid
Customers" for more dumb questions)

the customer without fail, will annoying say, "it's free"
You know what "facing" means
You know how to check if
something is in the right spot
You no longer think "hay" when
you hear the word "bale"
The customer will undoubtedly
swipe their debit wrong. Then they will undoubtedly say "every
machine is different," when really, there is only two ways to swipe
a card, plus the new ones that read the chip, so in reality, only
half or two thirds of the machines are different. Posting a
sign that says "stripe goes out --->" in big, pink, bold letters
will, in fact, decrease the amount of incompetent swipers down by
50%. This sign will by no means eliminate the occasional
customer who will try swiping their card without actually putting
the stripe into the machine.
You will inevitably say at

Hamars AG Foods,
Lac La Biche
There once was an AG Foods store in Lac La Biche.
Since it was owned by the Hamar family, people called the store
"Hamars." The store closed down on October 24, 2009, forcing me to
go job searching once more. Still, working at this store will have
always been my favourite job. Here is some jokes that I thought up
about Hamars during my time there. Don't worry if you don't
get the jokes, they're probably inside jokes anyway.
You know you're at Hamars when:
The coffee room has a nickname of "the Iron Lung."
The customers know more about where to find the
product than the part-time stock boys.
When you say "I quit," you actually mean either
"I'll stop working here until this manager leaves," or "I'll be back
if I can't find another job."
You see a "Special" sticker above the signs that say
The stock boys are trained in at least two other
You can't go a week without
seeing a drunk customer in your store (worse yet, customers aren't
the only people you'll see drunk in the store)
A sign saying "Return Carts Here" is ignored on a
You may see a sale on an item which is only one cent
cheaper than the original price. If you really keep your eyes
open, you may even spot a sale which is up to
fifty cents two dollars greater
than the original price. (I've actually seen a sale sign that showed
a savings of -99999.99, but needless to say I didn't put that
glitched out sign into the store)
Hamars' safety meetings happen on a regular basis.
(Definition of a Hamars safety meeting: nobody moves, nobody
gets hurt. For more info, see my comic:
Name tags are a pointless part of the dress code.
Customers will still ask you "do you work here?" even though you are
wearing an AG foods T-shirt, black dress pants, black shoes, a
nametag that says "AG Foods" beside your name, and you are stocking
items on the shelf (true story, happens to me on a regular basis).
I highly doubt wearing that "AG Foods" baseball cap will help my
case at all. The people who know you work there still call you by your brother's
name. (A month after the store cloed I was helping my mom at her
job. I didn't work there, I wasn't wearing any kind of uniform
or greeting the customers in any way. But people assumed I
worked in the store from watching me and asked me where stuff was
without first asking me if I worked there. Go figure.)
You hear the paging system being used as
walky-talkies. What's worse is: when the customers are
gone, its used as a microphone to test out one's musical vocal
sounds. Another use for the paging system: megaphone.
The cashier (among other people) forgets to hang up
the paging phone. This resulted in a few things: the
music wasn't playing anymore (good riddance), you could still hear
the cashier giggling over the intercom, and all the customers in the
store (it was rather busy that day) almost heard profanity spoken.
You see a sign that originally read "No thefts will
be tolerated," now proclaiming, "No! Thefts will be
tolerated." A sign that originally read "You are not locked
in," now reads "You are
in!" (this particular sign was in the milk cooler. I
found it amusing that the same sign had the same vandalism done to
it in the Sobeys store I started at after Hamars closed down) Pens come in handy for things other than writing in your

The high school that I graduated from was known as JAWS. Its more
expanded name is: J. A. Williams High School. Click
here to go to the school's website
(which I once renovated). There is lots
of things I can say about this school. Too bad I'll have to cut my
list short so I don't offend anyone.
You know you're at JAWS when:
If someone says, "where's the flood?" The
correct reply is, "upstairs." (actually, the first floor was flooded
too, but I didn't get to see that because they cancelled school that

Napoleon Dynamite wins Marti Gras (I don't care what
the records say, Taber won - but we will NEVER forget Barker).
You hear "are you going to class?" it doesn't mean
"hurry up." It means "are you going to class today, or are you
skipping with me?"
The Phys. Ed class takes place everywhere but
the school gym.
A good day is when there is still soap and paper
towel left in the bathrooms.
Diplomas are written to background music of drilling
You see students text messaging students in the same
class about how dull this "no cell-phone policy" speech is getting.
You see students slaving away in computer class
during a fire drill (maybe I don't know the whole story, but they
sure weren't moving towards the doors like the rest of the school).
Dramas gone wrong is dramas gone right: "The
Lady Pirates of Captain Bree" would not have been worth my money if
it wasn't for all the singing off-key, knocking over the back walls,
saying lines at the wrong times (or missing them completely),
audience leaving at the wrong time (twice), messing up accents,
scenes being played in the wrong order, laughing uncontrollably at
the guy in the dress and paper stuffed down his chest (the paper
wasn't in the script), and fake violence which was actually real.
Speed bumps are conveniently placed so students can
veer around them (or use them to test their shocks).
The school movie is finally made at 2:00 AM of the
day that its supposed to be played. No big deal? You're
right, they only had the whole previous semester to make it.
It's not their fault they chose this time to do nothing.
The substitute teacher "accidentally" shows the
class the wrong movie which is not educationally oriented (I say no
more...at least on my website).
Gambling is not allowed (I just had to rub that in).
Four different Phys. Ed. classes are conveniently
scheduled in the same time slot. JAWS has one (or less)
There is a "Live Simply" week to encourage students
not to bring items to school that were already banned from the

The man said, “Here and there.”
The judge asked the man, “What do you do for a living?”

Then, they get to

At dinnertime, the Pope receives the
standard meal, a kosher TV dinner, but the lawyer receives a fine and
tasty meal, served on silver platters.
By this time, the lawyer is beginning
to suspect that an error has been made, so he asks one of the angels in
charge, "Has there been some kind of mistake? This guy was the Pope, and
he gets what everyone else gets, and I'm just a lawyer and I'm getting
the finest of everything?"

Before reading, make sure you understand
that these jokes ARE NOT stereo typical of all pastors. I definitely
have nothing against pastors. Knowing this, please enjoy these
- Pastors have the art of talking in somebody else's sleep!
- After seeing an elderly man fall asleep during his sermon, a pastor said
to the congregation, "Those of you who want to go to hell, STAND UP!"
The elderly man, being asleep, only heard the words "STAND UP" as he woke
up. So he stood up. As he gazed around him, he realized that
nobody else was standing up. Thinking quickly he said to the pastor,
"Pastor, I don't know what we are voting on, but it looks like you and I are
only ones for it!"
- Seeing a young lady asleep during his sermon, the pastor said to a girl
beside her, "Could you wake your sister up?"
"Oh, no," the little girl disagreed, "You put her asleep, YOU wake her up!"
Doctor's son (greatly stretching the truth): My dad can come home
from an operation with a million dollars!
Lawyer's son (also greatly stretching the truth): My dad can come
home from a case with two million dollars.
Pastor's son (not to be outdone): My dad makes so much money, it
takes four men to carry all of it!
Doctor's son: I can be sick, and it'll cost nothing. So I can
be sick for nothing.
Pastor's son: Well... I can be good for nothing!
A while after an elderly lady moved into the area, a kind neighbour
decided to visit her. He was right away welcomed in and soon enough he
and the lady had a conversation going. While talking, the man noticed
a bowl of peanuts on the coffee table in front of them. This man had a
very big craving for peanuts, he simply loved them.
"Do you mind if I have one peanut?" the man asked the lady. The old
lady was very reluctant, but finally she gave in and let the man have the
man have a peanut. But one peanut led to another, and another peanut
lead to the rest if the bowl finished. When the man was leaving he
offered to replaced the peanuts.
"No, no," refused the lady, "Every once in a while I have a craving for
chocolates. I just happened to have a bunch of chocolate covered
peanuts, but since I don't have any teeth, I just sucked the chocolate off
the peanuts and put the peanuts in the bowl."
- A minister told his congregation, "Next week I plan to preach about the
sin of lying. To help you understand my sermon, I want you all to read Mark
The following Sunday, the minister asked for a show of hands from those who
read Mark 17. Every hand went up. The minister smiled and said, "Mark has
only sixteen chapters. I will now proceed with my sermon on the sin of

- A pastor woke up Sunday morning, and
realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early spring day, decided
he just had to play golf. So, he told the associate pastor that he was feeling
sick and convinced him to do the sermon for him that day.
As soon as the associate pastor left the room,
the pastor headed out of town to a golf course about fifty miles away. This way
he knew he wouldn't accidentally meet anyone he knew from his church. Setting up
on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone
else was in church.
At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to
the Lord while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, "You're not going to
let him get away with this, are you?" The Lord sighed, and said, "No, I guess
Just then the pastor hit the ball and it shot
straight toward the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the
hole. It was a 420-yard hole-in-one! St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the
Lord and asked, "Why did you let him do that?"
The Lord smiled and replied, "Who is he going
- A pastor, known for his lengthy sermons, noticed a man
get up and leave during the middle of his message. The man returned just before
the conclusion of the service. Afterwards the pastor asked the man where he had
gone. "I went to get a haircut," was the reply.
"But," said the pastor, "why didn't you do that before the service?"
the gentleman replied, "I didn't need one then."
- So it seems that these four ministers had a series of theological arguments,
and three were always in accord against the fourth. One day, the odd pastor out,
after the usual "3 to 1, majority rules" statement that signified that he had
lost again, decided to appeal to a higher authority.
"Oh, Lord!" he cried. "I know in my heart that I am right and they are wrong!
Please give me a sign to prove it to them!"
It was a beautiful, sunny day. As soon as the minister finished his prayer, a
storm cloud moved across the sky above the four. It rumbled once and dissolved.
"A sign from God! See, I'm right, I knew it!" But the other three
disagreed, pointing out that storm clouds form on hot days.
So the pastor prayed again: "Oh, God, I need a bigger sign to show that I am
right and they are wrong. So please, Lord, a bigger sign!"
This time four storm clouds appeared, rushed toward each other to form one big
cloud, and a bolt of lightning slammed into a tree on a nearby hill.
"I told you I was right!" cried the minister, but his friends insisted that
nothing had happened that could not be explained by natural causes.
The Pastor was getting ready to ask for a *very big* sign, but just as he said,
"Oh God...," the sky turned pitch black, the earth shook, and a deep, booming
voice intoned, "HEEEEEEEE'S RIIIIIIIGHT!"
The minister put his hands on his hips, turned to the other three, and said,
"So," shrugged one of the other pastors, "now it's 3 to 2."
- A minister waited in line to have his car filled with gas just before a long
holiday weekend. The attendant worked quickly, but there were many cars ahead of
him in front of the service station.
Finally, the attendant motioned him toward a vacant pump.
"Reverend," said the young man, "sorry about the delay. It seems as if everyone
waits until the last minute to get ready for a long trip."
The minister chuckled, "I know what you mean. It's the same in my business."
- The pope was getting a ride through the city when he got tired of always
having to sit in the back of a limousine. He told his chauffer to stop and
let him drive. The pope was well on his way when he ran a red light.
A police cruiser happened to be on patrol, and it pulled over the pope.
The officer was just about to give a ticket, when he noticed who was driving.
He phoned up his superior officer. "Hey boss, you'd never guess who I just
"I don't know for sure, but he must be pretty important. He has the pope
for his driver!"
- One Sunday a pastor found several letters awaiting him. He opened one and
found it contained the single word, "Fool."
Quietly and with becoming seriousness he shared the letter with the congregation
and announced: "I have known many an instance of a person writing a letter and
forgetting to sign his name, but this is the only instance I have ever known of
someone signing his name and forgetting to write the letter."
- Pastor Dave Charlton tells us, "After a worship service at First Baptist
Church in Newcastle, Kentucky, a mother with a fidgety seven-year old boy told
me how she finally got her son to sit still and be quiet. About halfway through
the sermon, she leaned over and whispered, 'If you don't be quiet, Pastor
Charlton is going to lose his place and will have to start his sermon all over
again!' It worked."
- After a church service on Sunday morning, a young boy suddenly announced to
his mother, "Mom, I've decided to become a minister when I grow up."
"That's okay with us, but what made you decide that?
"Well," said the little boy, "I have to go to church on Sunday anyway, and I
figure it'll be more fun to stand up and yell, than to sit and listen."
- As a young minister, I was asked by a funeral director to hold a graveside
service for a homeless man, with no family or friends. The funeral was to
be held at a cemetery way back in the country, and this man would be the first
to be laid to rest there.
As I was not familiar with the backwoods area, I became lost; and being a
typical man did not stop for directions. I finally arrived an hour late. I
saw the backhoe and the crew, who were eating lunch, but the hearse was nowhere
I apologized to the workers for my tardiness, and stepped to the side of the
open grave, where I saw the vault lid already in place. I assured the
workers I would not hold them up for long, but this was the proper thing to do.
The workers gathered around, still eating their lunch. I poured out my
heart and soul.
As I preached the workers began to say "Amen," "Praise the Lord," and "Glory!" I
preached, and I preached, like I'd never preached before, from Genesis all the
way to Revelation.
I closed the lengthy service with a prayer and walked to my car. As I was
opening the door and taking off my coat, I overheard one of the workers saying
to another, "Man, I ain't never seen nothing like THAT before, and I've been
putting in septic tanks for twenty years!"

Like many such freshman courses, it was designed to weed out new students,
having over 800 students in the class. The examination was two hours long,
exam booklets were provided. The professor was very strict and told the
that any exam that was not on his desk in exactly two hours would not be
accepted and the student would fail.
Half an hour into the exam, a student came rushing in and asked the
for an exam booklet.
"You're not going to have time to finish this," the professor said, as he
the student a booklet.
"Yes I will," replied the student. He then took a seat and began writing.
After two hours, the professor called for the exams and the students filed
and handed them in--all except the late student, who continued writing.
Half an hour later, the last student came up to the professor who was
his desk preparing for his next class. He attempted to put his exam on the
of exam booklets already there.
"Oh, no you don't! I'm not going to accept that. It's late."
The student looked incredulous and angry, "Do you know who I am?"
"No, as a matter of fact, I don't," replied the professor with an air of

"DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!" the student asked again.
"No, and I don't care," replied the professor with an air of superiority.

- A linguistics professor was
lecturing to his English class one day. "In English," he said, "A double
negative forms a positive. In some languages, though, such as Russian, a
double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language wherein a
double positive can form a negative."
A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah right."

to make the matter clearer, she said, "Now, class, if I stood on my head,
the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the

- Some foreigners were taking a tour of a Smogarian museum. One of the
tourists got separated by accident from his group and wandered into the
space exploration section of the museum. Soon he became interested in
a odd-looking large object. The label of the object read, "According
to Smogarian Scientists, this is the space vehicle that was launched to the
moon. It didn't reach it however. A Smogarian Rocket-Scientist
blamed the failure on the fact that 100,000 Smogarians jumped onto the other
side of the giant see-saw a tenth of a second too late."

top of a hill. His options were to hire a Canadian, an American, and a
Smogarian. He said to all three, "I'll hire the one who can do the
best job in a month. I want all three of you up there with my sheep by
All agreed, and a week later they were all on the hill shepherding.
Two days passed when the American came down the hill because of the smell.
Another four days passed the Canadian came down the hill because of the
smell. Three days later, the herd of sheep came down the hill.
Three window washers were complaining about their lunches at the top of
the CN Tower. They were from three different countries: Canada,
America, and Smogaria. The Canadian one complained, "If my wife makes
me one more roast beef sandwich for lunch, I will jump down this
The American one complained, "If my mother makes me one more cheese and
lettuce sandwich for lunch, I'll jump down from here as well."
The Smogarian one said along the same lines, "If I have one more peanut
butter sandwich, I'll throw myself down from the CN Tower."
The next day, both the Canadian and American had different sandwiches,
but the Smogarian had a peanut butter sandwich in his lunch. True to
his word, he jumped to his death. At the funeral the Canadian and
American asked his wife why she made him a peanut butter sandwich. The
sobbing wife replied, "That's what I don't understand, he made his own
- A Smogarian immigrant came to Canada. He only knew 3 phrases:
"twenty-five cents . . .
yes, very fresh . . . if
you don't then someone else will." Knowing these 3 phrases got
the guy a job at a grocery store. Somebody would come up to him and
ask him "how much is this bread?" In which the Smogarian would answer,
"twenty-five cents" "Is it fresh?" Would be replied
by "yes, very fresh" and if the customer said "I don't know if I
want to buy this" The Smogarian would use the phrase, "If
you don't then someone else will". So the customer usually ends up
buying the bread. On one event a few robbers came into the

- One day a Smogarian was riding in his VW bus when he saw a guy eating
grass. He stopped, got out and asked him, "Why are you eating grass".
The man replied, "I'm so poor, I can't afford a thing to eat."
So the Smogarian said, "Poor guy, come back to my house."
The guy then said, "But I have a wife and three kids." The Smogarian told
him to bring them along.
When they were all in the car, the poor man said, "Thanks for taking us
back to your house, it is so kind of you."
The Smogarian said, "You're going to love it there, the grass is a foot

brains $90.00 a pound.’
So he asked the man behind the cash register, “how come his brains are
only worth $8.00 and a Smogarian brain is worth $90.00?”
The man replied, “do you know how many Smogarians it takes to make a pound
- One day two Smogarians were trying to figure how tall a
pole was. The pole was wooden standing up right. Right when they
were about to give up, a Canadian fellow showed up.
"What's the problem boys?" The Canadian asked.
"We're trying to figure out how tall this pole is."
"That's not a problem," the Canadian replied. He pulled out an axe,
then chopped down the pole. "There you go, now just measure it with
your measuring tapes. That was easy, eh?"
"That lumberjack thinks he's so smart," said one Smogarian.
"Yeah," agreed the other, "we wanted the height, and he only gave us the
- A sailor in a bar leans over to the guy next to him and says, "Wanna
hear a Smogarian joke?"
The guy next to him replies, "Well, before you tell that joke, you should
know something. I'm 6' tall, 200 lbs, and I'm a Smogarian. The guy sitting
next to me is 6'2" tall, weighs 225, and he's a Smogarian. The fella next to
him is 6'5" tall, weighs 250, and he's also a Smogarian. Now, you still wanna tell that joke?''
The sailor says, "Nah, I don't want to have to explain it three times."
Three motorcyclists drove up to a restaurant, looking for trouble.
They came up to a truck driver and gave a hard time. They spoiled his
lunch and messed up his hair. The truck driver just got up, washed his
hands, and left the restaurant. One of the motorcyclists said, "Boy
that wasn't a true truck driver. He was such a push-over. That
was no fun."
The waiter came over and said, "You'd better believe that was no true
truck driver. He couldn't even drive his own semi. He just ran
over three motorcycles!"
Two car drivers crashed head first on a deserted road. They both
got out of the car, and stood amazed that they were both alive. One of
the drivers said to the other, "Yes! We are both alive! I have a wine here
The other driver gratefully accepted and drank a small glass of
wine. "Thank you," the man said, "why aren't you drinking some?"
"I am waiting until after the cops come."
- A large, two-engine train was making its way across America. While
crossing the Western mountains, one of the engines broke down. "No problem,
we can make it to Denver and get a replacement engine there," the engineer
thought, and carried on at half power. Farther on down the line, the other
engine broke down, and the train came to a standstill in the middle of
The engineer needed to inform the passengers about why the train had
stopped, and always trying to look on the bright side of things, made the
following announcement: "Ladies and Gentlemen, I have some good news and
some bad news. The bad news is that both engines have failed, and we will be
stuck here for some time until the additional engines arrive. The good news
is that you didn't take this trip in a plane."
- A young man bought the fastest motorcycle that money could buy--a
2000 SP 8.2. It was the most expensive bike in the world and cost him
$32,150.99. The first day he bought the new bike he took it for a spin.
doing so he stopped at a red light at the city limits.
An old man pulled up next to him on a moped. The old man looked over at the
bright, red, shiny, sleek new motorcycle and asked, "What kind of scooter ya
The young man replied, "It's a Yamaondason 2000 SP 8.2. It costs $32,150.99
"That's a lot of money," said the old man, shocked. "Why does it cost so
"Because this bike can go 200 mph!" exclaimed the young man.
The old fella asked, "Can I take a closer look at it?"
"Sure," replied the new owner.
From his moped the old man leaned over and took a good look at the very
fast-looking machine. Just then the light changed, so the young man decided
show the old guy what his new motorcycle could really do. He gave it full
throttle and within 30 seconds the speedometer read 199 mph.
Suddenly, he noticed a dot in his rear-view mirror. It seemed to be gettingcloser! He slowed a little to see what it could be and suddenly, WHHHOOOSSSHHH!
Something whipped passed him going much faster.
"What could be faster than my 2000 SP 8.2?" the young man thought to
Then just ahead of him, he saw the dot coming back at him. WHHHOOOSSSHHH! It
went flying by him again going in the opposite direction! It almost looked
the old man on the moped! How could that be, thought the young man. Again
saw the dot in his mirror! WHHHOOOSSSHHH! KABBBLAMMM! The moped slammed into
rear of the shiny new 2000 SP 8.2, demolishing the read end of the young
pride and joy. The young man jumped off and saw it was the old timer.
Of course the moped was crushed and the old man was lying on the ground
beat up. The young man ran over to him and asked, "Are you hurt? Is there
anything I can do for you?"
The old man groaned and replied, "Yes, could you unhook my suspenders from

- Sitting on the side of the highway waiting to catch speeding drivers, a
State police officer sees a car puttering along at 22 MPH. He thinks to
himself, "This driver is just as dangerous as a speeder!" So he turns on
his lights and pulls the driver over.
Approaching the car, he notices that there are five old ladies--two in the
front seat and three in the back--wide-eyed and white as ghosts. The
driver, obviously confused, says 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
"Slower than the speed limit? No sir, I was doing the speed limit exactly 22
miles an hour!", the old woman says a bit proudly.
The officer, trying to contain a chuckle explains to her that "22" was the
highway number, not the speed limit.
A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned and thanked the officer for pointing
out her error.
"But before I let you go, ma'am, I have to ask, is everyone in this car
okay? These women seem awfully shaken and they haven't muttered a
single peep this whole time," the officer asks.
"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute officer. We just got off Highway

"Well, I guess I'm going to get a driver's license," he answered.
"Oh, don't listen to him," yelled a woman in the passenger seat. "He's a
real smart-mouth when he's been drinking."
This woke up the guy in the back seat who took one look at the cop and
moaned, "I knew we wouldn't get far in a stolen car."
At that moment, there was a knock from the trunk and a voice said, in a
thick Spanish accent, "Are we over the border yet?"
- Two cab drivers met.
"Hey," asked one, "what's the idea of painting one side of your cab red and
the other side blue?"

- A man was driving down the highway late one night when his minivan broke
down. He turned on his flashers and tried to get someone's attention
to help him. Eventually a Lamborghini pulls up.
"Any chance I could get a lift into town?" said the minivan driver.
"I can do better than that," the man driving the Lamborghini replied. "I've got
a V-12 under this hood, I can tow you to the nearest town, no problem.
Just honk your horn and flash your lights if I start going too fast."
They head off down the road and eventually come to a stop light. Up
pulls a Ferrari F40 with a V-10. The F40 began to rev its engine to get the
Lamborghini to race. The Lamborghini revs its engine and the light turns green.
They fly out of there, and about a half a mile down the road they pass a
