National Humor Month Funny Short Joke Number Fifteen

National Humor Month Funny Short Joke Number Fifteen

This is a poetic love story – sort of. A man’s love for his wife, his sexual life, and his daily golf game. Although not necessarily in that order. Heh, heh.

Funny Joke Number Fifteen

Harry and Sally Brown

Were such a loving pair.

Married for fifty years,

To be apart was rare.


What kept Harry faithful?

Two things I will name:

Healthy sex with Sally.

And his daily golf game.


Their biggest concern –

Was there an after-life?

When Harry became ill,

He promised his wife,


After he passed away,

He would come back and tell

If there is life in heaven

Or just eternity in hell.


After a short illness,

Poor Harry passed away.

His sweet Sally buried him

In his blue suit and toupee.


Somehow Harry made it back,

One evening late at night

He contacted Sally

It gave her such a fright.


“Is that really you, Harry?

Are you back from the dead?”

“Just temporarily, dear,”

Is what her hubby said.


“Are you happy there?

Is there anything you need?”

“No, dear, I just returned,

Like we had both agreed.”


What do you do every day?

I hope you are not in a rut.”

“What is it like there, Harry?

Are you getting ‘you know what’?


“I do have a life there,

Let me tell you, my dear.

When I awake

I have sex,

Then breakfast,

Then more sex.

Then the golf course

And more sex.

Sunbathe a little,

And have more sex.


Lunch comes next.

Then more sex

Sometimes twice

But always nice.


The golf course again

And sex after dinner

So much sex

I have gotten thinner.


Every day is the same

I cannot complain.

With sex and the golf course,

Over and over again.”


Sally says, “You must be in heaven,

Playing golf and other things?”

Harry says, “Well not exactly,

I’m a rabbit on a golf course . . .

. . . in Palm Springs.”

Funny Quotes

Rabbits must have a wonderful life. I think I might opt for the "Bunny" option when my time comes.

The punch line caught me off guard, but I'm not a golfer.I also liked the quote about golfing in the low 80's.

Love it, Rosemary, when you are surprised by the ending. Not easy to do these days. Little Harry putters, m'dear? You are so clever.

A hole-in-one, you ask? Dang, I'd be happy with a hole-in-ten!


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

So happy when I hear you giggling, Becky. Thanks for the visit and liking the cartoon and video also.

It was a 'gotcha' for you, Superfine? Thank you, m'dear, you made my day.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hey, sheila, I love it, too, when you don't guess the ending. With the 'great,' that makes this lil bunny the perfect joke.

No wonder Harry the rabbit is getting thinner. Sex with so much "FORE!"play on the golf course.:)


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

I suppose, christopher, you could do worse. The bunny option does have a lot going for it. So much better than coming back as a male Banana Spider who becomes a meal after mating. (See my "Interview with Banana Spider.") Thanks, my friend, for dropping by.

What a pleasure, Pamela, to provide your first laugh of the day, Makes me feel special, m'dear. Thanks for loving the ending and have a 'mahvelous' weekend yourself.

What fun to catch you off guard, Dahoglund. I get the feeling that doesn't happen too often to you. Right? Thanks for loving my golf quote. We have much in common. Although I've played occasionally for years, I have to finally admit I'm not a golfer either.

Dear Docmo, I adore your clever poetry and Harry wholeheartedly agrees with me. You are a fantastic funny fellow. Thank you for loving this series and for the 'personify funny' comment which I shall treasure. As well as the Up, up and away.

Of course, reincarnation happens, Ruby. Would I lie to you? Heh, heh. Delighted to learn that you are an Adam Sandler fan, too. He IS a funny guy. Smiles backatcha, my friend, and much laughter on your weekend.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

That was a stunner, SilentReed ... so much 'FORE' play on the golf course. Wish I had written that. Maybe one day I will, heh, heh. You ARE a clever one, m'dear.

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

It was my pleasure to share this poem, Wayne, thank you for visiting and finding it 'funny stuff!' I knew somehow you would approve.

He-he!

I enjoyed the video too, as I enjoyed the movie!

Drbj - I have never ever played a game of golf! There are a half a dozen around my neighborhood. I have played mini golf! Lol

Very funny - at first I thought the wife might be willing to commit suicide...but a rabbit? Haha!

drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Wow, you are really playing catch-up today with the comments, Martie. So I will, too. Thank you for enjoying this joke and the video. I saw that very funny film, too, and Adam Sandler is wild.

Don't worry, m'luv, about your place in heaven. Believe me, it is already assured. Promise!


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

I don't play much golf these days, Kelly, but miniature golf is lots of fun - same thrill of getting the ball where you want it without all the walking, waiting, etc.

Was it a gotcha with the rabbit? The hardest part for me was translating a very old joke in prose into poetry so it would be new!


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Hilary, so I made you blush? Sorry I could not see it from here. But I did hear you laugh. That's a good sign. Thanks for the visit, m'dear.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

I think Harry liked the idea of being a popular bunny rabbit, too, Paradise, despite his protestations. How else could he have that much fun? Thanks for the stopover, m'dear.

Like AliciaC said, we are going to miss these jokes when the month is over... Great stuff, drbj!


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Alicia - I love surprises, funny ones, that is. Don't you? Thanks for looking forward to the 'entertainment' during this month. I may try to pop in one joke a month subsequently - if I can remember them.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Oh, Feline, m'dear, you are so clever. Very 'bunny,' eh? I'll have to remember that one!


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Do regret, bp, that I may have altered your perception of your backyard rabbits, but hope they are conjugal. Thanks for the stopover, the very funny and the Up. :)


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

How nice of you, nemanja, to say, 'we are going to miss these jokes when the month is over.' I'll throw one in every once in awhile to keep the chuckles going.

Kosmo profile image

Kosmo 4 years ago from California

Thanks for the joke, although I'm not sure I get it. Of course, rabbits seemingly have lots of procreative sex . . . and then there's the golf course in Palm Springs . . . ? But I do like your sense of humor. Later!


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Thank you for the 10 ha's, Nellieanna, and the 'priceless.' What a lovely compliment. But then, so are you, m'dear.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Kosmo, with your comment I do believe you 'got it.' But then, so did Harry! Only NOT in the way that he anticipated. Thanks for the like of my sense of humor ... or weirdness. Whatever.

They don't call it "@#$#@ like a rabbit" for nothin'! Not abad afterlife when you think about, being a FORE-play hare on the green that is lol.


Derdriu 4 years ago

DrBJ, What an amusing, belly-laughing clever, funny poetic tribute to Harry and Sally! Did you choose the name Harry in honor of Harry Houdini whose wife Bess waited 10 successive Halloweens for Harry to contact her from the after life? Or is this what ultimately happened "When Harry Met Sally"? Or is it something else?

Thank you for brightening reader days with chuckles, giggles and guffaws, voted up + all.

Respectfully, Derdriu


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

You are so right, Alastar, the bunny's life is not so bad although I don't think it was exactly what Harry would have wished for. A FOREplay hare, you say? You are the clever one, m'dear.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

You are so perceptive, Derdriu. Yes, I chose Harry and Sally to honor that funny film with the best line I ever heard in a comedy: "I'll have what she's having."

Funny you should mention Harry Houdini - I was toying with the idea of interviewing him, too, but he keeps disappearing. I guess, once a magician, always a magician.

Thank you, m'luv, for your gracious comments as always, and the up+.

I missed this when you first published, but it was worth the wait! As usual, I was not expecting a punch line like that. Funny stuff. I'll have to vote UP, funny, etc. etc. Thanks for my mid afternoon giggle.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Deighted you found this one, mary, I would hate to think you missed a mid-afternoon or any other time giggle. And if you did not expect the punchline, then I did my job. The funniest jokes usually creep up on you at the last possible moment. Thank you for your faithful commenting as well as the funny, UP, and etc., m'dear.

I'm all for Jimmy Demaret's quote. Mmm? So was Harry in his own Heaven? Or was it a higher being's idea. Thank you drbj.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

You raised an interesting question, John. I think it's possible that Heaven might be what each one of us wants it to be. Was not expecting such profundity on this hub!

Thanks for the visit, you are appreciated.
