Updated on May 14, 2017

Sleep in another room?

Humor is a funny thing - things that make one person laugh often leave others wondering what the joke was

So, without apologies, the materials here, however, are things that make me laugh.



P.S. Those who jump off a Paris bridge are in Seine.

Groucho Marx

"Anyone who says he can see through women is missing a lot."

Thirsty Strings

I first heard this classic when my eldest granddaughter, about ten at the time, asked me if I wanted to hear a story... Fifteen years later, I'm still laughing.

There were three pieces of string wandering in the desert. They were very hot and thirsty. They came upon a bar and one went in. He asked for a drink and the bartender said, 'read the sign buddy we don't serve strings.'

'Oh come on just this once', the string asked again. The bartender said 'nope', so the string left. The second string figured he was a bit better looking and maybe the bartender would soften a little and let him have a drink. He went in and asked for a drink, the bartender shook his head and said 'Hey Buddy, it's just like I told your friend we don't serve strings here.' Dejected, the string left the bar.

The 3rd string heard both these tales of woe and thought for a moment. Then he rolled himself into a knot and fluffed the edges so it was a little fraid. The third string went into the bar like this and asked for a drink.

The bartender asked, 'Hey aren't you a string?' The 3rd string looked down at himself and said 'Nope, I am a frayed knot!'

SYNONYMOUS: Almost identical to a mouse

Speaking of Strings...

A set of jump leads walk into a bar. The bartender says, 'I'll serve you, but don't start anything.'

A man walks into a bar with a slab of asphalt under his arm, and says: 'A beer please, and one for the road.'

"Did you know Annie was dating a steer? It's true - I heard it through the bovine."

A Tiger's Got To Watch It's Diet, Too!

A tiger was strolling through the jungle and saw two men sitting quietly under a tree. One of the men was reading a newspaper while the other was pounding away on an old fashioned typewriter.

With a mighty leap, the tiger sprung on the man with the newspaper and devoured him on the spot. The jungle cat didn't bother the guy with the typewriter at all, because all self-respecting tigers know that readers digest, but writers cramp.
