National Humor Month Short Funny Joke Number One

Did you know that April is National Humor month? I’m not kidding. I just learned that today.

Actually, I learned that fact yesterday but it was April 1st yesterday and that was April Fool’s Day, and I thought you might think it was a joke and not believe me if I said April is National Humor month. So I waited until today, April 2nd to let you know it REALLY IS National Humor Month this month. Who knew?

So here is my plan. I will write as many short humorous hubs as possible during this month with one of my favorite short funny jokes and a humor quote. Until I run out of material or out of April. Whichever comes first.

Funny Joke for April 2

Three women visited a spa and were sitting together in a sauna completely naked. Two of the women were in their 20s. The third was a senior citizen.

Suddenly, there was a beeping sound. One of the young women pressed her forearm and the beeping stopped.

The others looked at her questioningly. “That was my pager,” she said. “I have a microchip implanted under the skin of my arm.”

A few minutes later, a phone began to ring. The second young woman lifted her palm to her ear. When she finished talking into her hand, she explained, “That was my mobile phone. I have a microchip implanted in my hand.”

The older woman felt very low-tech during all this but not to be out done, she decided she had to do something that would also be impressive. She excused herself, stepped out of the sauna, and went to the ladies bathroom.

She returned to the sauna with a large piece of toilet paper hanging from her rear end.
The other two women raised their eyebrows and stared at her.

The older woman laughed and said, “Well, will you look at that? Someone is sending me a fax.”

Doc,

Thanks for the heads up on April Humor not being reserved to only the 1st of the month. :)

I did the "vote", and ticked the first one, but changed my mind after I took the time to reconsider.

A good amount of the time, I fail to see the humor in certain situations until someone points it out to me.

About a week later I get a really good laugh out of it when it finally dawns what it is they were explaining. :)

Better late than not at all?

High-five!

Someone is trying to tell me something I suspect. Keep em coming.

A fax!! Haha!! I always look for the humor in everything and that's no joke!! I might offend some people at times, but in the end they see the humor also. It's a win-win situation! As always thank you for the laugh!:)

Never is there enough humor to lighten the darkness. I chuckle, sometimes laugh out loud at the comics, which I read everyday. I love irony in poety and fiction and satire as well. So glad you are doing this. It is also National Poetry Month, so funny poems would be good too. UP! Loved the dog photo too. Shared!

Laughed so hard at this that coffee spewed out of my nose, drooled down my lap and ruined the fax that was arriving around the corner.

Love that you loved my 'wicked sense of humor,' Vincent. Noticed that you have one, too, my friend. But the 'old farts' comment simply will not do. I prefer 'woman of a certain age.' Wait a minute, I think that should be 'woman of an uncertain age.' Heh, heh.

Stay tuned!

Hi, Becky. Thanks for the 'very cute, and keep watching. And thanks for the generous offer but as Jimmy Durante (back in the Ice Age) used to say, "I got a million of 'em."

Hi, Angelia, yup, April is Humor Month and also Poetry Month. Those appellations are right down my alley - I am addicted to both.

Don't worry about changing your "vote" in the poll, there is absolutely no penalty. If you don't see the humor sometimes in certain situations, it may be due to your analytic mindset. Bet it shocks the $h*! out of folks when you start laughing hilariously a week later.

High-five! to you, too, babe.

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, christopher. What a coincidence. You had a dream about an old woman and then woke to read my 'old woman' joke. Just goes to prove we are both on the same high plane! Don't worry that someone is trying to tell you something unless that person wears a white coat and carries a strait-jacket. :)

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Sally. It's my genuine pleasure to have you looking forward to mornings in April now! You keep reading, sweetie, and I'll keep writing. Promise.

Hi, Rosemary, You just keep laughing out loud at my jokes even if you have to giggle in the lavatory. Best way to start the day. Trust me.

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Linda. Somehow I knew you were a kindred spirit in the enjoying-humor-department. Could tell from your hubs. And you are so right. Laughter is a win-win situation for everyone involved. Enjoyed the fax, eh? You are most welcome.

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, xstatic. Me, too, I laugh out loud when I read 'Hagar the Horrible' and 'Pearls before Swine' - my two favorite comics. And sometimes 'Dilbert' when he's not preaching. As far as satire and irony (what a team!) are concerned, without them there would be less humor.

Thanks for reminding me that April is also Poetry Month. Have written 12 Funny Puns in verse that you might enjoy reading. Be my guest and thanks for the Up and sharing. That poor soaked doggie is one of my favorite pics.

Hi, Peg. Oh, what a picture you paint, m'dear, of laughing so hard that you are spewing coffee and drooling as well. Do hope that fax was arriving ... EXTERNALLY. :)

Hahaha!! I had heard that one before, but forgotten it. Thanks for the reminder.

The way the kids today go around with their cell phones glued to their hands 24/7, I suspect it won't be long before we see an actual genetic mutation along these lines... Hee hee hee...

And thanks for the information--I had no idea it was actually open season for jokes ALL MONTH!!! ;-) That makes me feel a bit better about the fact that yesterday was the first time in my life I failed to prank anyone on April Fool's Day!

Voted up, funny and shared.

Almost all British newspapers will run at least one joke piece on April Fools' Day. Trouble is, these days the news is so funny it is hard to spot the spoof article.

LOL!!!!! Hahahaha!!! First of all my initial thought was, hmmm... it's an April Fools joke until you mentioned you published this on April 2. You read our minds, so I believe you now. This was hilarious!

Voted up and funny!


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Paradise. It's hard not to laugh when you read this joke and have a very visual sense of humor. As you obviously have. Not crazy at all. The grins, m'dear, are on me.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Funny you mentioned gross, Alastar. Before I decided to publish this joke I thought this is much too gross - liable to tarnish my image, such as it is. Then I thought, what the hey, it is a funny joke. Happy to see you agree, m'dear.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

That's my mission, Feline, to keep you all laughing. It IS the best medicine. Be my guest, m'dear.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Nice to meet you, DzyMsLizzy, love your name. Happy to have reminded you of this oldie but goodie joke.

You make a good point about the possibility of cell phones becoming a genetic mutation. Sometimes I think they already have with youngsters. Sorry you forgot your annual April Fool prank. Go on, do it today and really shake someone up! Just explain that it's Humor Month. Thank you for the sharing, the funny and the Up. Do take a look at the others in this series.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Nice to meet you, East Texas Girl. Where could your daughter put the keyboard for a microchip cell phone. I think that's the part of the technology they are still working on. My vote is to swallow it and just hiccup your message. :)


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Thank you, Lizzy, that bedraggled, frazzled doggie photo is one of my favorites, too.

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

That's what I plan for April, Alicia, a funny month. Thanks for your loyal readership, your ladyship.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

It's a pleasure to meet you, Karanda, especially since we share the same philosophy - that laughter shoud be included daily in everyone's life. That has been my lifelong philosophy, too, and I'm talkin' about a fairly long life since I am older than soil.

The next ones are already here - Jokes #2,3 and 4, that is. Would love to have your thoughtful comments.

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

The feeling is mutual, Jim, I love your sensibility, ethics and patriotism and the way you keep my interest in your writings. Here's to our mutual admiration society - long may it reign.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, CM - you are most welcome for the jokes; it's my pleasure to brighten up your morning. Now I'm laughing at your comment about your preference for the low tech option. Some things are just better without technology. And thanks for adding to my list of new idioms. 'Loo roll' has so much more class than toilet tissue.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

I already knew, dear bp, we were sisters under the skin since we both love jokes and laughter. Delighted that this was a win/win for you. That's the way it should always be. Thanks for the Up and the funny, m'dear.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Nearly another hernia with this one, amillar? I'm going to have to start using a disclaimer like "Caution: read at your own peril." Thanks for the Up and funny, my friend. And oh, yes, the arf-arf and ouch!


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, 2patricias, I can well understand your problem at distinguishing the April Fools joke piece in British newspapers from the real news which is funny. We have the same problem these days in the U.S. Only no one is laughing.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

I already knew, Kelly, that you laughed out loud at this one - I heard it here, 1,000 miles away. Love your comment, m'dear, and ILYT (I love you, too).


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Yes, Eddy, please do share this one with Dai. Why should we be the only ones to have all the fun? Delighted you found this priceless and adore the 'gem' comment. Have a wonderful weekend - Dai, too.
