Haiku Jokes – Part Two

Haiku Jokes – Part Two

Haikus are addictive, fun to create and almost as enjoyable as chocolate. So here is the second edition of my haiku creations.

You may want to read my previous effort first, Haiku and Senryu Jokes, which explains the format and nature of these brief but pithy three line, 17-syllables only, poems which may or may not rhyme.


What is large and gray

And wears glass slippers all day?

Cinderelephant!


My pig learned judo.

Now he struts around like cops

Practicing pork chops.


What patriot warned,

“Coming this way are British!”

It was … Paul Reverse.



Why did Noah fish

Only two times on the Ark?

He had just two worms.


Hear about the skunk

Who attended the town’s church?

He had his own pew.


Name something dogs do

That people may step into.

No, not poo! ... It’s pants.

Baby snake asks mom,

“Mother, are we poisonous?”

“Why?” … “Just bit my tongue.”


What do you call fish

That do not have any eyes?

That is simple. Fsh.


I’m reading a book

About anti-gravity.

Just can’t put it down.


That guy is so dumb,

He requested a price check

At the dollar store.


The ship ran aground,

Its cargo – red and black paint.

The crew were marooned!


Why so many Jones

In the phone book? Do you know?

Guess they all have phones.


I told the hotel,

“I’ve gotta leak in my sink.”

They said, “Go ahead!”


New Easter egg hunt

For those Alzheimer’s patients.

They hide their own eggs.


Where do youse find trees

In da city of Brooklyn?

Between twos and fours.

So what can you do

With a dog that has no legs?

Take him for a drag.


There’s a new food that

Lowers the female sex drive.

It’s called wedding cake.


Never knew what true

Happiness was ‘til marriage.

Then it was too late.


Just want to leave you laughing ...

Cheers for the laughs. The funniest one was the cartoon chicken at the checkout. The "wedding cake" one ran it a close second.

Keep up the good work.

You are so welcome,

My dear, sweet nice friend, Susan.

It is my pleasure.

How's that for a fast Haiku retort?


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Thanks for the Western hoot, Will. I'll take a snicker (or a groan) any time.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Anyone who loves every funny line is my friend for life, Ruby. But then you already were. I know the 'Noah and the 2 worms' Haiku might have been a little gross, but what the hey, a laugh is a laugh. Right?


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Martie, Happy to provide giggles and grins today. What, no groans? I must be improving. Thank you, m'dear, for the hilarious and the up. I needed those today!

Delighted I could provide a winner for you, Paradise. And my apologies to any and all Brooklynites. I love youse all.

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

You liked them all, mary? I dunno, maybe you shouldn't encourage me. But thanks for choosing the wedding cake one - I kinda like it, too. Always happy to be good for a laugh, m'dear.

Hi, Nellieanna. Had to translate the 'Aieeeeeeeeeee,' but it's OK. Learned that it means the funniest, most hilarious and humorous jokes I have read in my entire life. Right?


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Debbie, Thank you for loving this and the up. Creating these funny haikus is easy - you just have to think outside the box and not take your meds. Heh, heh.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

I like the 'bock,bock' chicken, too, christopher, and the wedding cake. Delighted I could provide you with a few laughs. Cheers backatcha, my hubbuddy. Will try to keep up the good work as long as my (in)sanity holds up.

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Now that was a stroke of genius, Feline. You just coined the ingenious word, Hahaiku, which I shall speedily appropriate forthwith. Thank you. If I write any more of these I shall title them Hahaikus and give you the proper credit. No dollars, just credit. And thanks for the wonderful, m'dear.

Oh, yes, Eddy, you go, girl. Surprise your partner tonight! And while you're at it, tell him a few jokes, too.

If I think of some more, you will be the first to know. Thanks for the up and away.

drbj, I wanted to send you some fan mail, but I cannot find your fan-mail inbox on your profile... ???

Just want to say it is good to know you. I wish I could have known you in real life, but let me not kick against the pricks and just be grateful because I know your awesome spirit in CyberSpace :)

Each one I read I thought, "oh that's my favorite"...until I read the next! I have to say I love all the animal haiku's. Brilliantly, hilariously entertaining.

Are you from Japan?

If so, Susan, and you sneeze,

Do you say, "Haiku?"


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Hilary, thank you for finding my haikus delightfully funny and funnier than the cartoons you see? Wow! That's really an accolade. How do I do it? Must be my inner child trying to escape.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Oh, no, not you, too, amillar. Has the Haiku craze overtaken you, too? But it's OK. Anyone who compares my hubs to chocolate is my kind of hubbuddy.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

I dunno, Martie, some playful spirit keeps moving my contact info around. Sometimes it is on the second page right under my profile, and other times it is on the first hubpage at the right under the first ad. Like this one. Please do send me some fan mail; I love it.

It is goooooood to know you too, m'luv, even though it is only cyperspace at the moment. But one never know, do one?

Signed, Your 'awesome spirit' hubbuddy

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Pamela. Just as funny as the first one? Laughed the whole time? You are really good at commenting, girl, don't stop. I promise to try to jump-start my muse for a third edition. For you, m'dear.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Amy, have been wondering how you are. What gracious comments. Thank you for loving the animal haikus. And thanks for the sublime adjectives. What a coincidence! They are the same words I would have used! Heh, heh.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, teaches. So happy you were laughing with each joke and found the cartoons a hoot, too. I feel just like an elevator now giving you a 'lift.' Corny, I know, but true.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Thank you, Feline, for your written permission to appropriate 'hahaiku.' And how did you know? Inspiration together with knowledge are two of my favorite things to disseminate.

Cute, and Funny and Fine...That's our Drbj all the TIME!


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Those were two of my favorites, too, Kelly, Paul Reverse and the leaky sink. We great minds do tend to stick together. Don't apologize, m'luv, for having to think a minute. That's a compliment you know.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, b. Have you noticed how my Haikus tend to bring out the poetic inner spirit in all of us. You, m'dear, are no exception with your clever rhyming comment. Thank you.

Rosemay50 4 years ago from Hawkes Bay - NewZealand

Haha I loved all of these. My favourites were the leak and the easter egg hunt, I can so relate to that one (the egg hunt not the leak) I hope the very last thing I lose is my sense of humour, but then how could I lose that with you around to keep it tuned up and in good working order. Lol


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Thank you, Rosemary, for loving these Haikus. Your favorites are my favorites, too. I hope to stay around awhile to help both of us keep our respective sense of humor in good condition. You will never lose yours, m'dear. I have spoken!

What an awesome idea...Haiku jokes! These were hilarious, but then no surprise there! Now I am in the mood to write some haikus again. They are such a great brain exercise, add some humor to them such as you did and you get a cardio workout too from laughing! :) Congrats on your 2015 Hubbie Award!


drbj profile image

drbj 13 months ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Linda. You had to do some searching, girl, to find these. Nice to see you here. I agree, writing Haikus does exercise what is left of my brain ... er, I mean, my left brain. My right brain doesn't need any such impetus ... yet!

Thanks for the sweet comments and the congrats. Backatcha on the congrats - your winning one is not too shabby either.

Too funny! It takes a lot of talent to turn a phrase and make it as humorous as you do. It looks easy because we're laughing, but try doing it and you find out it's not so easy.

Well done drbj. That's why you're the funniest!


drbj profile image

drbj 12 months ago from south Florida Author

Ah, Mary, you always know just the right things to say. So happy you found these and thank you for laughing and for the sublime comments. So I'm the funniest, eh? I shall cherish that description, m'dear.
