National Humor Month Funny Short Joke Number Twelve

Updated on April 15, 2012

National Humor Month Short Funny Joke Number Twelve

Have you ever wondered why there are so many jokes about blind people? Like why doesn’t the blind guy sky dive? Because it scares the $h*! out of his Seeing Eye dog. That was just a sample. Here’s the real deal.

Funny Joke Number Twelve

Once there was a blind man.

And Edgar was his name.

His friends bragged about Texas.

And everyone said the same:

“Everything is huge in Texas.”


Edgar was an explorer at heart

Although he had been short changed by fate

He made up his mind although blind

He would one day visit this huge state.

Because everything is huge in Texas.


Edgar boarded an airplane for the trip.

When he sat in the seat it felt huge.

Even his seatmate agreed with him,

A passenger from Baton Rouge.

“Everything in Texas is huge.”


Edgar took a taxi to his hotel

The doorman guided him through the lobby.

He told the guy how huge the hotel seemed,

As if it belonged in Abu Dhabi.

The doorman said with a laugh so infectious,

“Everything is huge in Texas.”


When he entered his huge hotel room

He checked out the size of the huge bed

By throwing his body across it

And measuring the size of the spread.

B’God, everything is huge in Texas.


Edgar went to the hotel restaurant

That’s where he would order dinner

The waiter read him the huge menu

Edgar knew he’d never get thinner

The steaks were outsized

And so were the pies

Because everything is huge in Texas.


While waiting for his meal to arrive

Edgar ordered a drink from the bar.

When the drink came it was really huge,

The hugest drink he ever drank by far.

Everything is huge in Texas.


Now he needed to find the men’s restroom

The waiter said, “It’s on the main floor.

Just turn to the right and then to your left,

You can’t miss it - it’s the second door.

But be careful – everything is huge in Texas.”


Edgar became confused as he searched,

And by mistake opened the wrong door.

He stumbled as he entered this space

And slid across a very huge wet floor.

Everything is huge in Texas.


It was the huge indoor swimming pool

And Edgar fell in with a rush.

As he popped to the surface scared to death

He screamed, “Please, do not flush, do not flush!”

      Hi, Martie. Well, I'm making progress. A ROFL for the joke, and an LMAO for the video are so much more significant than an 'OOeeeeee', doncha think? Thanks for making the rounds today.

      I thought it was very thoughtful, Linda, of the film producers to include the explanatory bit at the end of the Stooges film. Thainking about it, their insurance providers may have demanded that disclaimer. And I did enjoy the corny antics of the new stooges.

      Just saw the new Three Stooges movie, Linda, and it was hilarious as advertised. The Farrelly brothers who produced the film take time to explain to kids who might be motivated to eye-poke just how to do it without actually poking someone in the eyes. And they demonstrate the rubber hammers and mallets used which are no fun at all without the sound effects. Lotsa fun. Thanks for stopping by, m'dear.

      I could never be upset with you, Alastar, we both seem to share the same, shall I say, unique, sense of humor. The 3 stooges have always been favorites of mine and the newest trio of actors seem to resemble the original actors very closely.

      Thanks for noticing, Feline, dear. I published number eleven but it was unpublished for links not related to content. This surprised me since there were no links on the hub. Will republish #11 when that gets sorted out.

      The new 3 stooges movie with 3 new stooges looks like it will be a slap-stick, finger-in-the-eye and hit-on-the-head type of film like their old comedies. My kind of humor! Thanks for visiting and your sweet comments. See you at the movies.

      Three Texans met in bar. They ordered beer and began to brag. The first said he had 200,000 acres near El Paso. The next one puffed up and declared he had 500,000 acres near Waco. The third said he owned 100 acres. The other two sneered and asked him where it was.

      He took a sip of beer and smiled. "Downtown Dallas."
