Please feel free to share your favourite joke with us either by leaving it in my comment box or if you haven't already done so by posting it on your blog, just don't forget to tell us you have done so.

Wife: 'There's trouble with the car. It has water in the carburetor.'
Husband: 'Water in the carburetor? That's ridiculous.'
Wife: 'I tell you there is water in the carburetor.'
Husband: 'You don't even know what a carburetor is. I'll check it out. Where's the car?'
Wife: 'In the swimming pool.'

And one of my favourites .........

A man is watching a film with haunting organ music on tv when all of a sudden he yells out 'You idiot, don't enter that church, it's a trap.'
On hearing him shout out his wife asks him what he is watching.
The husband replies 'Our wedding video.'

A man is sitting reading his newspaper when his wife hits him round the head with a frying pan.
'What was that for?' he asks.
His wife replied 'That was for the piece of paper with the name Jenny written on it that I found in your trouser pocket.'
The man then said 'When I was at the races last week Jenny was the name of the horse I had a bet on.'
Apologising his wife got on with the housework.
Three days later the man is sitting watching tv when his wife bashes him on the head with an even bigger frying pan.
'What was that for?' the man asks.
Her reply?
'Your horse phoned.'

Once upon a time there was a man who seemed perfectly normal except for one thing .... he was red.
One day, the red man was in the shower when the doorbell rang and so putting on a towel he ran downstairs and opened the door to find the postman standing there when, whoops, his towel dropped.
The postman got such a shock that he ran out into the street and, thud, was hit by a 4x4.
The moral of the story?

An English professor was trying to make extra money by selling vacuum cleaners door-to-door. At his next scheduled stop, he knocked at a door which was promptly opened by a little girl.
"Young lady, may I please have a word with your mother?" he asked.
"Nah, she ain't home," she replied.
Taken aback, the man scolded the little girl "Where is your grammar?"
"She's upstairs taking a bath."

Remember: Dogs and cats are better than children because they ....
  1. Eat less
  2. Usually come when called
  3. Are easier to train
  4. Don't ask for money all the time
  5. Don't drink or smoke
  6. Don't hang out with annoying friends
  7. Never ask to drive the car
  8. Don't have to have the latest fashions
  9. Don't want to wear your clothes
  10. Don't need a gazillion dollars for college
  11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children. - Thanks Naida on FB.

Hello Tracy,

That was a nice idea to collect and post some funny stuff. And also thanking you for mentioning my name, and posting the joke I shared from grammarly.

Here is my favorite joke. This is about Sherlock Holmes and watson.

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson went on a camping trip. After sharing a good meal and a bottle of Petrie wine, they retire to their tent for the night.

At about 3 AM, Holmes nudges Watson and asks, "Watson, look up into the sky and tell me what you see?"

Watson said, "I see millions of stars."

Holmes asks, "And, what does that tell you?"

Watson replies, "Astronomically, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Theologically, it tells me that God is great and we are small and insignificant. Horologically, it tells me that it's about 3 AM. Meteorologically, it tells me that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you, Holmes?"

Holmes retorts, "Someone stole our tent."

Thanks for sharing so many funny jokes! My favorite was the wedding video, as it sounds like something a husband would say! Of course, then we could smack him with a big frying pan! ;)
