“three men go in to a bar, and the whole thing unfolds, with a tedious inevitability” – Bill Bailey

Guy walks into a bar, carrying a canvas bag. Says “Bartender, if I show you something amazing, will you buy me a drink?”.

Bartender has seen it all, so he shrugs. “Yeah, sure.”

Guy reaches into the sack, pulls out a tiny grand piano and a hamster wearing a tuxedo and a Beethoven wig. Hamster sits down, starts playing Moonlight Sonata.

Bartender shrugs.

Guy says “Hold on, there’s more.” Reaches into the bag again, retrieves a second hamster. This one’s wearing a gown and a Viking helmet, starts singing Wagner.

Bartender shrugs again. Guy sighs, begins to put hamster back into the bag. Third guy appears suddenly in the joke. “Wait! I’ll give you 50 bucks for the singing hamster!”

First guy agrees to the deal, exchanges the hamster for 50 bucks. Third guy runs out of the bar with dollar signs in his eyes, and ka-ching! sounds in his head. Bartender says: “Dude, are you nuts? That guy is going to make a million bucks with that singing hamster.”

“Nah. First hamster is a ventriloquist.”

Bartender bought him a drink.

#1 – A couple of New Jersey hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: “My friend is dead! What can I do?”

The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: “Just take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.” There is a silence, then a shot is heard.

The guy’s voice comes back on the line. He says: “OK, now what?“

#2 – A man and a friend are playing golf one day at their local golf course. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer.

His friend says: “Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man.”

The man then replies: “Yeah, well we were married 35 years.”

and #3 -

Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson go on a camping trip. After a good dinner and a bottle of wine, they retire for the night, and go to sleep.

Some hours later, Holmes wakes up and nudges his faithful friend. “Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.”

“I see millions and millions of stars, Holmes” replies Watson.

“And what do you deduce from that?”

Watson ponders for a minute. “Well,

Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.

Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo.

Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three.

Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.

Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful, and that we are a small and insignificant part of the universe.

But what does it tell you, Holmes?”

Holmes is silent for a moment.

“Watson, you idiot!” he says. “Someone has stolen our tent!”

I like old age jokes (they are all becoming true). Here are a bunch of one liners

There is nothing left anymore to learn the hard way.  
Things that you buy now won’t wear out.
Your investment in health insurance is finally paying off.

You can sing along with elevator music.

A vicar and his friend are playing golf. His friend misses a three foot putt and says “damn! missed the bugger!” The vicar is shocked by his language and tells him that God will strike him down if he keeps on cursing. The friend laughs and says the same thing when he misses the next shot. Suddenly, there is a bolt from the sky and the vicar is struck dead! Then a voice out of the heavens calls “Damn! Missed the bugger!”

A bear walks into a bar in Boise and asks the bartender for a beer. The bartender says, “we don’t serve beer to bears in Boise.” The bear says, “see that woman at the end of the bar?” The barkeep nodded. The bear said, “If you don’t give me a beer, I will kill her.” The barkeep shrugged. The bear mauls the woman and comes back to the bartender and says, “OK, NOW will you give me a beer?” The bartender says, “we don’t serve beer to drug addicts.” The bear looked at him quizically.

If you throw a cat out your car window, does it become kitty litter?

zephyr826's avatar

A blond, a brunette, and a redhead escape from prison. They’re running through the fields when they hear the sirens. The brunette sees a farmhouse and suggests they hide in the barn.
As they reach the barn, they hear the police car pull up in the farmhouse yard. The redhead says, “Quick, let’s hide in the hayloft!” So they climb the ladder, and up in the loft, they see three gunny sacks. They hide in the sacks and wait to see what happens.
After a brief conversation with the farmer, the sheriff and his deputy enter the barn and look around. “There ain’t nuthin’ here, “says the deputy.
“What about up in the hayloft?” asks the sheriff. So the deputy climbs the ladder to the loft.
“Nuthin’ but three gunny sacks.”
“Well, what’s in ‘em?”
The deputy kicks the first sack, where the brunette has been hiding. She is prepared, and begins to bark. “Ruff, ruff, ruff, rrowuff.”
The deputy calls down, “It’s just a little puppy dog.”
“What’s in the next one?”
The deputy kicks the next bag, where the redhead is hiding. She lets out a loud “Meow” and a hiss.
“Ain’t nuthin’ but a little kitty cat, Sheriff.”
The sherriff asks about the last sack, and the deputy approaches. The blond has been thinking hard, and she’s sure she has a fool-proof plan. When the deputy kicks her sack, she cries out triumphantly:

“POTATOES!”

This joke’s a little sick:

A man and a boy are walking into the woods at dusk. The boy stops, turns to the man and says, “Hey, I’m scared!” The man replies, “You think you’re scared?! I have to walk out of here alone!”

Another:

A man dies and goes to hell. Satan greets him, shows him three doors, and says, “You must spend the rest of eternity in one of the rooms behind these doors. Look in each one and decide which one you want.”

The man opens the first door, and sees a bunch of people standing on their heads on a wooden floor, looking very uncomfortable. He opens the second door, and sees a bunch of people standing on their heads on a concrete floor, looking even more uncomfortable. Finally, he opens the third door, and sees a bunch of people standing around chatting and drinking coffee, up to their waists in shit.

“Hmmm,” he says, “that looks bad, but it’s better than the other two. I’ll take the third door.” Satan smiles, and gives the man a contract to sign.

The ink’s not even dry on the paper when an imp walks into the room and says, “All right, coffee break’s over! Everyone back on your heads!”

@Vincentt – but I love lame jokes! I don’t get the cheese slicer one, though..

Dr_C's avatar

@troubleinharlem and @Vincentt i think it was a cutter with a cheese slicer or an emo with a cheese slicer.. i’ve heard both)

erichw1504's avatar

@Dr_C So, why does it get smaller and smaller?

Dr_C's avatar

wel.. how does a cheese slicer work? it takes small little slices off one at a time… so if a cutter is using a cheese slicer on his/herself… he/she is basically taking little slices out of his/herself and is therefore getting progressively smaller no?

erichw1504's avatar

@Dr_C But, I thought the cheese slicer itself was getting smaller, not the person?

Dr_C's avatar

@erichw1504 nope… the person using the cheese slicer

erichw1504's avatar

@Dr_C But the answer is a cheese slicer, not emo dude with cheese slicer.

Not sure if this is my favorite, but I’ll post it while I’m thinking of one:

Guy walks up to a bartender and says, “gimme a shot glass”.

The bartender gives him a shotglass.

The guy takes the shotglass, walks to the far end of the bar, sets it down at the far corner.

He walks back to the other corner of the bar, about 25 feet away.

He says to the bartender, “I’ll bet you 50 bucks that I can stand here, and piss into that shotglass on the other end of the bar until it’s full.”

Bartender says, “you’ve got a deal”.

Guy whips it out, starts pissing…piss gets everywhere…goes about 10 feet down the bar, splashes on the bartender, on the bar, on the bottles, EVERYWHERE, but not a single drop makes it to the shot glass.

The guy puts himself back in, pulls out his wallet and hands the bartender a $50 bill, then walks away with a HUGE grin on his face.

Another guy grabs him and says, “hey buddy, you just lost 50 bucks, whaddareya so happy about?”

The guy replies, “see those 3 gentlemen at that table over there?”

“Yep” replies the other guy.

“Well, I just bet them each $200 I could piss all over the bar and the bartender would wipe it up with a smile on his face.”

Vincentt's avatar

@troubleinharlem @Dr_C @erichw1504 Haha, oops! It’s should be a toddler with a cheese slice. I was so involved in finding the English word for kaasschaaf (which is cheese slicer) that, once I’d found it, I forgot about adding the rest of the answer. Funny how that could stir such a discussion. (And yeah, it’s still lame.)

This may get modded, so I will word things carefully . . .

This older gentleman walks into a pharmacy and walks back to the counter. He told the gal behind the counter that he would like to purchase prophylactics. She asked him what size. He indicated that he had been purchasing prophylactics for years and had never been asked that question. She indicated that she had a very easy way to discern the necessary size if he would allow her to assess his member. He complied.
She grabbed the microphone and said, “I Need medium, aisle 4, medium. please.”

A bit later a thirty something guy walks in and asks her for condoms. She asked him what size. He said he didn’t know and she told him of her ability to assess. He complied. Over the microphone she called “I Need extra large, aisle 4, extra large, please.”

Toward the end of her workday a 16 year old came in staring at his shoes and said he needed to buy some rubbers. She asked what size and he said he had never bought rubbers before. She told him of the size assessment and he agreed. Over the microphone she said, “I need cleanup on aisle 4, cleanup on aisle 4 please.”

There was an elderly man named Harold. He had become very close to a woman named Hazel and the nursing home where they both lived. After a time, he indicated to her that it would mean so much to him if she would be willing to allow things to progress a bit further in their physical relationship. Hazel asked what he meant and he said that it would mean so much to him if she would occassionally just hold his member. Hazel allowed as how she could do that and it became a regular thing for the two of them.

One evening after dinner, Hazel went looking for Harold and was shocked to find him sitting on a bench outside the dining hall with Ethel. Ethel had Harold firmly in hand. Hazel was dumbfounded.

Later she spoke to Harold and said, “What’s Ethel got that I ain’t got?”

“Parkinson’s,” Harold replied.

OK, I thought about it, this might be my favorite.

A 23 year old blonde, Marilyn Monroe lookalike marries a frail looking 97 year old billionaire, thinking if he even has any interest left in sex, one good roll in the hay will do him in and she’ll get all his money. The honeymoon night comes and she sits on the hotel bed, and she decides to get it over with, offer herself up to her new groom and either he won’t have anything to offer, and if he does, she’ll pull out all the stops in hopes she can push him over the edge. She calls out to him, “honey, come to bed.”

He replies, “OK, I’ll be right there, just gotta get ready.”

She waits for him in bed, a few minutes later the old man comes out of the bathroom. He’s buck naked, except for 3 things…earplugs, noseplugs and a Magnum condom on his raging 12” erection.

She looks at him and says, “what they hell’s all this for?”

He replies, “If there’s 2 things I can’t stand, it’s the sound of a screaming woman and the smell of burning rubber.”

dalepetrie's avatar

And if THAT’s not my favorite, this probably is:

Three old men are sitting in a nursing home, discussing their ailments.

The first one says, “Every morning, I get up at 7, and I have to take a leak somethin’ fierce. My damn prostate’s so swollen, it takes me an hour to piss.”

The next one says, “That’s nothing. I get up at 8 every morning and I gotta take a huge crap. But I’m so damn constipated, I sit on the pot til almost noon.”

The third one says, “You boys got it easy. Every morning at 7, I piss like a racehorse. Every morning at 8 I shit like a pig. Problem is, I don’t wake up til 9.”

@erichw1504 – maybe you need to put it all together in one place.

What’s red, sits in a corner and just keeps getting smaller and smaller?
A Toddler with a cheese slicer.

You see, because toddlers are a) hyperactive and b) don’t know when to quit.

Think of a brick of cheese…what happens when you’re slicing it with a cheese slicer…it gets smaller and smaller.

Think of a toddler with a cheese slicer…he doesn’t know it’s for slicing cheese. But he’s curious, he’s gonna use it somehow. And hence he becomes red, and smaller and smaller.

I like that one!

I kinda liked this one a buddy told me a few months ago, it’s growing on me.

A guy spends 20 years working as an obstetrician and decides he needs a change of career. So he leaves behind his medical practice and enrolls in a technical school to become a mechanic. Turns out he’s very good at it, a star pupil. So, they get to a section on transmissions and one of the tests is for the student to rebuild a transmission. He performs this task and when he gets his test results back, the teacher gives him his grade, it’s 150 out of 100. So the guy goes to the teacher and says, “um, not that I’m complaining, but I think you made a mistake, how can I get 150 out of 100?” The teacher says, “I decided to give you extra credit.” The guy says, “well, thank you, but may I ask why? I just did the test same as everyone else.” And the teacher replies, “well, I’ve been teaching this class for 15 years, I’ve seen a lot of transmissions get rebuilt, but I’ve never seen anyone go in through the muffler.”

“Oh my lands,” her friend replied. The vactioner continued, “They also have these people called ‘lesbians’!” Her friend says, “Well, what’s that?” The vacationer says, “They’re women who have sex with other women!”

“I’ll swan,” her friend replied.

“They also have men who give women oral sex,” the vacationer said.
“What do they call them?” her friend inquired.

An old couple were going on a car trip. (This was when you went to a gas station and someone filled your gas tank and washed your windshield.) Gas station attendant made small talk with the older man, asking him “going on a trip?” Old man answered yes. The old lady, being extremely hard of hearing, screeched to her husband ‘WHAT DID HE SAY?”
Old man told her what he had been asked and she replied “OH”. Attendant then asked “going to be gone long”. Nope the old man answered. Again, the old lady screeched ‘WHAT DID HE SAY?” The old man asked answered what he had been asked and what he answered. Attendant then asked “what state are you heading to”?. Old man answered “Michigan”. Attendant said “I went there once, met a woman and had the worst sex I’ve ever had in my life”. As usual. the old gal, in her annoying screeching voice, asks “WHAT DID HE SAY?”. The old man smiled, looked at her and answered back “He says he knows you”.

This joke has been around for many years. My husband and I have great fun when one of us doesn’t hear what someone else has said and asks the other “what did they say?” The other of us will grin sheepishly and say “he (or she) says they know you”.

@captainshalfunit oh yeah, now we live in a world where a kid gets paid minimum wage to watch you pump your own gas . . .” unless you live in NJ or OR!

@captainshalfunit – I personally would find that joke a lot funnier if the old __man__ were the deaf one and the old __woman__ was the one doing the punchline.

@rooeytoo ; same here! I don’t know why, but I think that it’d be funnier.

The 4 stages of marital sex:

Stage 1 – House sex….you’re both so horny you fuck in every room in the house.
Stage 2 – Bed sex…you still fuck, but only in bed.
Stage 3 – Hall sex…you shout “fuck you” at each other whenever you pass in the hall.
Stage 4 – Court sex…your wife and lawyer fuck you in court.

When Bush was president, he went to Iraq and told the troops he was unhappy with the state of the country. Gets me every time

@Capt_Bloth – reminds me of the days just before personal computers, people were getting rid of their typewriters and buying word processors. One company marketed the limited edition Ronald Reagan word processor, only problem was it didn’t sell to well, because it had no memory and no colon.

Glad to see this one come up again.

In thinking about it, I don’t think I have a permanent “favorite”, just ones that strike my fancy for a few days, then I remember another one that I really liked, and THAT becomes my new favorite for a few days. Like this one…

A guy starts to have terrible headaches, and after trying every over the counter pain reliever on the market with no results, he decides to go to the doctor. The doctor examines him and says, “well, I’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is I’ve seen this before and I know how to cure it.”

“What’s the bad news?” inquires the man.

“To fix the problem, I have to castrate you,”

“Fuck you, I’m outta here,” says the man as he storms away in a huff.

He looks all over the internet for herbal remedies, has acupuncture, everything he can think that might help, but nothing works, and the headaches are getting more severe and more frequent. So he goes to a second doctor, who gives him the same opinion. So he goes to a third doctor, and sure enough, that doctor says he needs to be castrated.

So the guy calls up his doctor, apologizes for his outburst, and sets up the appointment to do the deed. The big day comes, he goes under the knife, and he wakes up, no headache, feeling fantastic…like a new person. The feeling lasts, so when he gets out of the hospital he decides to celebrate by buying a whole new wardrobe.

So he heads down to a men’s clothing store and a salesman walks up to him and asks if he needs any help, and the guy explains he’s looking for a whole new wardrobe. So the salesman says, “hmmmm, you look like a size 42 jacket.”

The man replies, “that’s exactly right.”

The salesman says, “size 12 shoes…”

“Exactly!” replies the man.

“Size 36/30 pants….” says the salesman,

“That’s AMAZING,” replies the guy.

“And size 38 boxers….”

“HAH!” replies the man. “WRONG. I wear 36, just like with my pants.”

“No,” says the salesman, “I can tell you wear briefs, and you need a 38.”

“Sorry, but I’ve been wearing 36 briefs my ENTIRE life,” says the man.

“No, no, no, you CAN’T wear size 36, they’ll squeeze your balls and give you terrible headaches.”

There was mother unicorn and she had 3 baby unicorns. The first baby unicorn came and said “Mommy, why did you name me Daisy?” The mother replied “Because the day you were born, a daisy fell right on your forehead.” She said “Ah that’s sweet.” She kissed her on the cheek and left. The next baby unicorn comes in and she said “Mommy, why did you name Rose?” The mother replied “Because the day you were born, a rose fell right on your forehead.” She said “Ah that’s sweet.” She kissed her on the forehead and walked away. Then the third baby unicorn comes in and she was like “DERREDUBUDUBJEHDK” and the mom said “SHUT UP CINDERBLOCK!”

@Val123 I admit that I didn’t get it at first, but when I finally did it was hilarious!

dalepetrie's avatar

@Val123 – reminds me of a similar but much dirtier joke.

A young native American man went to the tribal elders one day and inquired, “How are our name’s chosen?” The elder told him, “My child, we choose the names of our children based on things which we see on he day on which they are born. For example, the leader of our tribe is Running Bear, he is so named because on the day on which he was born, a bear was seen running through the field. Your father is named Eagle Eye, for when he was born, his mother looked to the sky and peered into the eye of an eagle flying overhead. So tell me Two Dogs Fucking, why do you ask?”

I have to say, same joke, but I think I like your version better.

Here’s my latest favorite:
A CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been going to the Western Wall to pray, twice a day, every day, for a long, long time. So she went to check it out. She went to the Western Wall and there he was, walking slowly up to the holy site. She watched him pray and after about 45 minutes, and when he turned to leave, using a cane and moving very slowly, she approached him for an interview.
“Pardon me, sir, I’m Rebecca Smith from CNN. What’s your name?
“Morris Feinberg,” he replied.
“Sir, how long have you been coming to the Western Wall and praying?”
“For about 60 years.”
“60 years! That’s amazing! What do you pray for?”
“I pray for peace among Christians, Jews and the Muslims. I pray for all the wars and all the hatred to stop.I pray for all our children to grow up safely as responsible adults, and to love their fellow man.”
“How do you feel after doing this for 60 years?”
“Like I’m talking to a fucking wall.”

The last one I heard is generally my favorite. Here’s a recent:

[Strong southern accent required for the proper reading]

Two “suthun” ladies were sittin’ on the front porch, rocking in their rocking chairs and sipping their iced tea.

First lady says . . . my husband is soooo wonderful. He bought me a new Cadillac. It is sooo beautiful; leather interior; top of the line.

Second lady says . . . that is sooooo niiiiiiice.

First lady says . . . and my husband is soooo wonderful. He bought me a diamond necklace. It is five carats and sparkling and beautiful.

Second lady says . . . that is sooooo niiiiiiice.

First lady says . . . and my husband is sooooo wonderful. He bought me a Rolex watch. Lovely gold with diamond trim. Just stunning.

Second lady says . . . that is sooooo niiiiiiice.

First lady says . . . so what has your husband done for you.

Second lady says . . . well, he sent me to charm school.

First lady says . . . Charm school? What did you learn in charm school??

Second lady says . . . well, when somebody is really pissing me off, rather than say “FUCK YOU!,” I say that is sooooo niiiiiiice.
