National Humor Month Funny Short Joke Number Fifteen

Updated on April 20, 2012

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

“I play in the low 80s. When it gets any hotter than that, I just don't play!” – me

"Golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at." – Jimmy Demaret

      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.

      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 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.

      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+.

      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.

      Derdriu 5 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

      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!

      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!

      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!

      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.

      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.
