Joke 1: The Irish declare war

Saddam Hussein was sitting in his office wondering whom to invade next when his telephone rang. "Hallo, Mr. Hussein!", a heavily accented voice said. "This is Paddy down at the Harp Pub in County Sligo, Ireland.  I am ringing to inform you that we are officially declaring war on you!". "Well, Paddy, "Saddam replied, "This is indeed important news! How big is your army?"  "Right now," said Paddy, after a moment's calculation, "there is myself, my cousin Sean, my next door neighbour Seamus, and the entire dart team from the pub. That makes eight!".

Saddam paused. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have one million men in my army waiting to move on my command."
"Begorra!", said Paddy. "I'll have to ring you back!" Sure enough, the next day, Paddy called again. "Mr. Hussein, the war is still on! We have managed to acquire some infantry equipment!". "And what equipment would that be, Paddy?" Saddam asked. "Well, we have two combines, a bulldozer, and Murphy's farm tractor."

Saddam sighed. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 16,000 tanks and 14,000 armored personnel carriers. Also, I've increased my army to 1-1/2 million since we last spoke.  "Saints preserve us!" said Paddy. "I'll have to get back to you." Sure enough, Paddy rang again the next day. "Mr. Hussein, the war is still on! We have managed to get ourselves airborne! We've modified Harrigan's ultra-light with a couple of shotguns in the cockpit, and four boys from the Shamrock Pub have joined us as well!"

Saddam was silent for a minute and then cleared his throat. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 10,000 bombers and 20,000 fighter planes.  My military complex is surrounded by laser-guided, surface-to-air missile sites. And since we last spoke, I've increased my army to TWO MILLION!"   "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!", said Paddy, "I'll have to ring you back."

Sure enough, Paddy called again the next day. "Top o' the mornin', Mr. Hussein! I am sorry to tell you that we have had to call off the war." "I'm sorry to hear that," said Saddam. "Why the sudden change of heart?" "Well," said Paddy, "we've all had a long chat over a bunch of pints, and decided there's no way we can feed two million prisoners."

Joke 2: The Cow

The only cow in a small town in Poland stopped giving milk. The people did some research and found that they could buy a cow from Moscow for 2,000 rubles or one from Minsk for 1,000 rubles. Being frugal, they bought the cow from Minsk.

The cow was wonderful. It produced lots of milk all the time, and the people were amazed and very happy.

They decided aquire a bull to mate with the cow and produce more cows like it - yhen they would never have to worry about the milk supply again. They bought a bull and put it in the pasture with their beloved cow.

However, whenever the  bull came close to the cow, the cow would move away. No matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from the bull and he could not succeed in his quest.

The people were very upset and decided to ask the Rabbi, who was very wise, what to do. They told the rabbi what was happening. "Whenever the bull approaches our cow she moves away. If he approaches from the back, she moves forward. When he approaches her from the front, she backs off. An approach from the side and she just walks away to the other side."

The Rabbi thought about this for a minute and asked, "Did you buy this cow from Minsk?"

The people were dumbfounded, since they had never mentioned where they had bought the cow.

"You are truly a wise rabbi," they said. "How did you know we got the cow from Minsk?"

The Rabbi answered sadly, "My wife is from Minsk."

He probably spent  lots of time in jail, and hasn't seen a woman in years. I saw how he kissed your neck.  If he wants sex, don't resist, don't complain just do what he tells you, just give him satisfaction.  This guy must be dangerous, if he gets angry, he'll kill us.  Be strong, honey. I love you." To which the wife responds, "He was not kissing my neck. He was whispering in my ear.  He told me he was gay, thought you were cute, and asked if we kept any Vaseline in the bathroom.  Be strong, honey. I love you, too."

Joke 4: What is Politics?

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "what is Politics?" Dad says, "well son, let me try to explain it this way:

I'm the head of the family, so call me the president.  Your mother is the administrator of the money, So call her the government.  We're here to take care of your needs, So we'll call you the people.  The nanny, we'll consider the working class, And your baby brother, we'll call him the future.  Now think about that and see if it makes any sense."

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said.  Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him.  He finds that the baby has severely soiled his Diaper.  So the little boy goes to his parents room and finds his mother sound asleep.  Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room.  Finding the door locked he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny.  He gives up and goes back to bed.  The next morning the little boy says to his father, "Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now."

The father says, "Good, son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about."  

The little boy replies, "The president is screwing the working class while the government is sound asleep.  The people are being ignored and the future is in deep s*it.".

Joke 10: Eleven people on a rope

Eleven people were hanging on a rope under a helicopter, ten men and one woman. The rope was not strong enough to carry them all, so they decided that one had to leave, because otherwise they were all going to fall.  They weren't able to name that person, until the woman gave a very   touching speech.  She said that she would voluntarily let go of the rope, because, as a woman, she was used to giving up everything for her husband and kids, or for men in general, and was used to always making sacrifices with little in return.

As soon as she finished her speech, all the men started clapping their hands.......

Fire authorities in California found a corpse in a burned out section of forest while assessing the damage done by a forest fire. The deceased male was dressed in a full wet suit, complete with scuba tanks on his back, flippers, and face mask. A post-mortem revealed that the person died not from burns, but from massive internal injuries. Dental records provided a positive identification. Investigators then set about to determine how a fully clad diver ended up in the middle of a forest fire. It was revealed that on the day of the fire, the person went for a diving trip off the coast some 20 miles from the forest. The fire-fighters, seeking to control the fire as quickly as possible, called in a fleet of helicopters with very large dip buckets. Water was dipped from the ocean and then flown to the forest fire and emptied. You guessed it. One minute our diver was making like Flipper in the Pacific, the next he was doing the breast stroke in a fire dip bucket 300 feet in the air. Apparently he extinguished exactly 5'10" of the fire. Some days it just doesn't pay to get out of bed.

This article was taken from the California Examiner, March 20, 1998.


A man was working on his motorcycle on his patio and his wife was in the kitchen. The man was racing the engine on the motorcycle when it accidentally slipped into gear. The man, still holding onto the handle bars, was dragged through the glass patio doors and along with the motorcycle dumped onto the floor inside the house. The wife, hearing the crash, ran into the dining room and found her husband lying on the floor, cut and bleeding, the motorcycle lying next to him, and the shattered patio door.  The wife ran to the phone and summoned the ambulance. Because they lived on fairly large hill, the wife went down the several flights of stairs to the street to escort the paramedics to her husband.  After the ambulance arrived and transported the man to the hospital, the wife up righted the motorcycle and pushed it outside. Seeing that gas was spilled on the floor, the wife got some paper towels, blotted up the gasoline, and threw the towels in the toilet. The man was treated and released to come home.  Upon arriving home, he looked at the shattered patio door and the damage done to his motorcycle.
He became despondent, went to the bathroom, sat down on the toilet and smoked a cigarette. After finishing the cigarette, he flipped it between his legs into the toilet bowl while seated. The wife, who was in the kitchen, heard the loud explosion and her husband screaming. She ran into the bathroom and found her husband lying on the floor. His trousers had been blown away and he was suffering burns on the buttocks, the back of  his legs, and his groin. The wife again ran to the phone to call the ambulance.  The very same paramedic crew was dispatched and the wife met them at the street.  The paramedics loaded the husband on to the stretcher and began carrying him to the street. While they were going down the stairs to the street accompanied by the wife, one of the paramedics asked the wife how  the husband had burned himself. She told them and the paramedics started laughing so hard, one of them slipped and tipped the stretcher, dumping the husband out. He fell down the remaining stairs and broke his arm.

Joke 14. My Bladder Knows I'm Home

Arriving home yesterday evening, as I usually do, I felt the sudden urge to pee. What luck, I thought. And here I am just yards away from the back door.  Suddenly it occurs to me: My bladder knows I'm home! I double my pace to the door and fumble through my coat pocket for my keys.  There are no keys in my coat pocket.  
Me: Bladder, please ignore the information sent by Brain. Hands are unable to locate my keys and it will be a few more minutes before you will be able to void yourself.
Bladder: I'm sorry, but vision central is still reporting that we are standing right outside the back door. Intelligence reports from yesterday that it took less than 30 seconds to get from back door to bathroom.
Me: But I can't find the keys.
Bladder: Not my problem. Starting countdown to elimination: 10... 9...8...
Me: How about if I tie the evacuation route into a knot, forcing a catastrophic backup? That makes it your problem.
Penis: WHA...?????!!!!!!
Bladder: I've checked with Brain about this, and we think you're bluffing.
Hand reaches into pants...
Bladder: Okay okay! I'll give you another 60 seconds. But that's it.
Encrypted transmission to Penis: Sorry to scare you like that, but it was necessary. I'll make it up to you later tonight.
Penis: Whew.
Me: Hands, how's it going with the search for keys?
Hands: Well they're not in your pocket, where else did you want us to check?
Me: Everywhere! We've only got 60 seconds before Bladder starts his countdown again. Hurry!
Hands: Roger will-co.
Bladder: How's it going up there? 45 seconds left!
Me: Stop distracting me. And turn off that music. I can't concentrate.
Legs: Let's go slightly crossed and start dancing. That always helps.
Me: No it doesn't help. It just makes me look foolish.
Brain: Hands are reporting they've found the keys in your back pack. We should be all set now.
Bladder: I heard that. Resuming countdown. 10... 9... 8...
Vision Central: The back door key isn't on this ring.  Hands picked up the wrong keys this morning.
Hands: Vision Central didn't have a problem with that this morning.
Vision Central: It was dark.
Hands: Was not.
Vision Central: Was too.
Brain: ENOUGH! What keys are on this ring?
Vision Central: Front door and mailbox.
Brain: Legs: To the front door, on the double!
Bladder: Or the mailbox.
Me: Don't even think about it. The mailman hates me enough as it is.
Legs: Approaching front door, ETA 12 seconds.
Hands: Wait! We've dropped the backpack!
Hands: Front door in range, keys inserted, lock released.
Brain: Hands, start working on the pants. There's a button and a zipper that needs to be disabled before we reach the evacuation point. Can you handle that?
Hands: No sweat, done it a million times.
Legs: We're in! ETA to bathroom: 5 seconds.
Vision Central: Watch out for the cat!
Cat: Meow!
Vision Central: Target in range.
Penis: Do we have a lock on the target yet? Last time I let go without target acquisition, Hands and Knees were busy cleaning for a half hour afterward.
Brain: Okay target has been acquired. FIRE!
Mouth: OOOOOOOOOOOaaaaaaaahhh!
Me: Whew, that was a close call. How long is this going to take?
Bladder: At least 12 more seconds. I'm pretty full.
Me: OK. Anyway Hands and Knees probably should get busy later, this place is a dump.
Colon Control: Did somebody say "dump"? Starting countdown: 10... 9...8...
Me: NO!

Joke 16: A Dog Named Sex

Everybody I know who has a dog usually calls him "Rover" or "Spot". I call mine Sex. Now, Sex has been very embarrassing to me. When I went to the City Hall to renew the dog's license, I told the clerk that I would like a license for Sex. He said, "I would like to have one too!" Then I said, "But she is a dog!" He said he didn't care what she looked like. I said, "You don't understand. ... I have had Sex since I was nine years old." He replied, "You must have been quite a strong boy."

When I decided to get married, I told the minister that I would like to have Sex at the wedding. He told me to wait until after the wedding was over. I said, "But Sex has played a big part in my life and my whole world revolves around Sex." He said he didn't want to hear about my personal life and would not marry us in his church. I told him everyone would enjoy having Sex at the wedding. The next day we were married at the Justice of the Peace. My family is barred from the church from then on.

When my wife and I went on our honeymoon, I took the dog with me. When we checked into the motel, I told the clerk that I wanted a room for me and my wife and a special room for Sex. He said that every room in the motel is a place for sex. I said, "You don't understand. ... Sex keeps me awake at night." The clerk said, "Me too!"

One day I entered Sex in a contest. But before the competition began, the dog ran away. Another contestant asked me why I was just looking around. I told him that I was going to have Sex in the contest. He said that I should have sold my own tickets. "You don't understand," I said, "I hoped to have Sex on TV." He called me a show off.

When my wife and I separated, we went to court to fight for custody of the dog. I said, "Your Honor, I had Sex before I was married but Sex left me after I was married." The Judge said, "Me too!"

Last night Sex ran off again. I spent hours looking all over for her. A cop came over and asked me what I was doing in the alley at 4 o'clock in the morning. I said, "I'm looking for Sex." -- My case comes up next Thursday.

Well now I've been thrown in jail, been divorced and had more damn troubles with that dog than I ever foresaw. Why just the other day when I went for my first session with the psychiatrist, she asked me, "What seems to be the trouble?" I replied, "Sex has been my best friend all my life but now it has left me for ever. I couldn't live any longer so lonely." and the doctor said, "Look mister, you should understand that sex isn't a man's best friend so get yourself a dog."

Joke 18: The Enterprising Farmer

Farmer John lived on a quiet rural highway.  But, as time went by, the traffic slowly built up at an alarming rate.  The traffic was so heavy and so fast that his chickens were being run over at a rate of three to six a day.  So one day Farmer John called the sheriff's office and said, "You've got to do something about all of these people driving so fast and killing all of my chickens."
"What do you want me to do?" asked the sheriff.
"I don't care, just do something about those crazy drivers!"
So the next day he had the county workers go out and erected a sign that said:
Three days later Farmer John called the sheriff and said, "You've got to do something about these drivers.  The 'school crossing' sign seems to make them go even faster." So, again, the sheriff sends out the county workers and they put up a new sign:
But again that really sped them up.  So Farmer John called and called and called every day for three weeks. Finally, he asked the sheriff, "Your signs are doing no good.  Can I put up my own sign?" The sheriff told him, "Sure thing, put up your own sign."
He was going to let the Farmer John do just about anything in order to get him to stop calling everyday to complain.  The sheriff got no more calls from Farmer John.  Three weeks later, curiosity got the best of the sheriff and he decided to give Farmer John a call. "How's the problem with those drivers.  Did you put up your sign?"
"Oh, I sure did.  And not one chicken has been killed since then.  I've got to go.  I'm very busy." He hung up the phone.
The sheriff was really curious now and he thought to himself, "I'd better go out there and take a look at that sign...  it might be something that WE could use to slow down drivers..." So the sheriff drove out to Farmer John's house, and his jaw dropped the moment he saw the sign.  It was spray-painted on a sheet of wood:

Joke 19: A blonde goes ice fishing

A blonde in Wisconsin decided she needed something new and different for a winter hobby, so she went to the bookstore and bought every book she could find on ice fishing.  For weeks she read and studied, hoping to become an expert in the field.  Finally she felt she knew enough and out she went for her first ice fishing trip.  She carefully gathered up and packed all the tools and equipment needed for the excursion.  Each piece of equipment had its special place in her kit.  When she got to the ice, she found a quiet little area, opened her padded stool and carefully laid out her tools. Just as she was about to make her first cut into the ice a booming voice from the sky bellowed, "There are no fish under the ice!"
Startled, the blonde grabbed up all her belongings, moved further along the ice, poured some hot chocolate from her thermos, and started to cut a new hole.  Again the voice from above bellowed,
"There are no fish under the ice!"
Amazed, the blonde wasn't sure what to do.  This certainly hadn't been covered in any of her books.  She packed up her gear and moved to the far side of the ice.  Once there she stopped for a few moments to regain her calm.  Then she was extremely careful to set everything up perfectly. Tools in the right place, chair positioned just so.  Just as she was about to cut a new hole, the voice came again, "There are no fish under the ice!"
Terrified, the blonde looked skyward and asked, "Is that you, Lord?"
And the voice boomed back, "No, this is the manager of the skating rink."
