I'm tired and cranky and my face hurts. Tell me a joke in comments. Maybe we can cheer up a bunch of people today.

Most of the jokes I know are very British! However, here's a link to the fabulous Mitch Benn being very silly indeed,

A judge trying a civil case opens the trial by saying that the plaintiff has given the judge $5,000 to rule in their favor. The defendant, however, has given the judge $10,000 to rule in their favor.

"I have considered this situation," says the judge, "and I think the only fair thing to do is return $5,000 to the defendant so the trial will be fair."

Three men walk into a bar.

You would think at least one of them would have seen it and ducked?

(Sorry, that's what you get for putting in this sort of request just as I'm about to head to bed for the night.)

So, this is during the war, and Sarajevo is under siege. One of the things people did when holding the city under siege was cut off the power, the water, the gas. It's really awful.

There's this hospital, and they're struggling along. Nurse is working triage desk, and a guy comes in, covered in burns from a gas stove on fire.

And as he staggers up to the desk, she says, "Great! I see the gas is turned back on!"

This is the single funniest joke I have ever heard.

Just as an aside, it isn't so funny when you come from that part of the world, which I do (and Sarajevo in particular is my father's particularly beloved city). Jay, your blog, your rules, but I just needed to say that making fun of tragedies is really not amusing to some of us out there.

An explorer in the jungle is bitten on the leg by a venomous centipede. He knows its bite is very toxic and possibly fatal if it is not treated quickly. His native guide tells him about a Christian missionary hospital several miles away and they immediately head for it.

They make it to the hospital in time and the explorer is met at the door by nuns who whisk him into a hospital bed. The nuns are familiar with this type of centipede and its bite and they reassure the woozy explorer that it can be treated but it will take several days before the danger has passed. The nuns busy themselves cleaning the bite, covering the skin around it with medicinal powder and then bandaging it up. As the explorer drifts in and out of consciousness he is vaguely aware of the nuns tending his wound at intervals and putting more powder on the bite. When lucidity returns he wakes to find a young nun in a white novice habit removing the bandages and cleaning the bite area again. After a few moments she stops and waits, leaving the wound exposed. He wonders why she's not finishing the job.

"Excuse me, but aren't you going to put the powder on my leg?" he asks.

The nun shakes her head. "Oh no, I'm not allowed to do that. Another nun dusts the bite."

Competed in a scavenger hunt over the weekend. One of the tasks was to get a helium ballon from a particular store and tell an knock knock joke with "helium voice".

After the first group of scavengers made a spectacle of themselves the store staff went soup Nazi on the rest of us, "no balloon for you!"


"Knock knock."
"Who's there?"
"Interrupting cow."
"Interrupting co..."

Someone on my f-list posted this yesterday.

Two brooms were hanging in the closet and after a while they got to know each other so well, they decided to get married.

One broom was, of course, the bride broom, the other the groom broom.

The bride broom looked very beautiful in her white dress.

The groom broom was handsome and suave in his tuxedo.

The wedding was lovely.

After the wedding, at the wedding dinner, the bride-broom leaned over and said to the groom-broom,

“I think I am going to have a little broom!”

“IMPOSSIBLE !” said the groom broom. Because...

“We haven't even swept together!”
