    not my best…

    NASA had sent many shuttles to orbit the earth and made an attempt to include passengers of all races, colour and creed. They recently realized they had excluded the clergy, so they invited a priest, a minister, and a rabbi to orbit the earth in a shuttle.

    Upon their return, crowds of people formed to hear their impressions. First the priest emerged, beaming and happy; his statement was full of joy. He said, “It was totally amazing. I saw the sun rise and set. I saw the beautiful oceans.”

    Then the minister emerged, also happy and at peace. He said, “I saw the magnificent earth, our home. I saw the majestic sun. I’m truly in awe.”

    Then the rabbi came out. He was completely dishevelled, his beard was tangled and in every direction, his kipah was frayed, his tallit was wrinkled, like you can’t imagine. They asked him, “Rabbi, did you enjoy the flight?”

    He threw his hands in the air crazily and replied, “ENJOY??? What was to enjoy? Oy! Every five minutes the sun was rising and setting! On with the tefillin, off with the tefillin, Mincha, Maariv, Mincha, Maariv… Oy Gevalt!!!!!!”



    so good it bears repeating, from the time before B”Y left.

    John Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN) for 6 am. While his coffee pot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG). He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE) and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA). After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA) he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see how much he could spend today. After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN) to the radio (MADE IN INDIA) he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY) filled it with GAS (from Saudi Arabia) and continued his search for a good paying AMERICAN JOB.

    At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day checking his Computer (made in MALAYSIA), John decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL), poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN FRANCE) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA), and then wondered why he can’t find a good paying job in AMERICA.



    -I just got back from a pleasure trip. I took my mother-in-law to the airport.

    aussie, I’m lost.

    One day, eight-year-old Melissa says to her mother, “Mommy, I’ve been thinking

    about us humans and I’m a bit puzzled. How did we first appear on Earth?”

    “That’s a very good question, darling,” her mother replies. “God made Adam and

    Eve and they had children and then their children had children, and as a result,

    mankind began.”

    Later that day, Melissa asks her father the same question. “Daddy, how did we

    humans first appear on earth?”

    “That’s an intelligent question, Melissa,” he replies. “Millions of years ago

    there were monkeys from which, gradually, the human race evolved.”

    Melissa is confused by this answer and goes ba

    ck to her mother. “Mommy,” she

    asks, “how come you told me the human race was created by God, yet daddy said

    they developed from monkeys?”

    “Well darling,” replies her mother, smiling, “the answer is simple. I told you

    about my side of the family and your father told you about his.”



    aussie, I’m lost.

    kapusta, if you don’t get it, I guess you’re not ADD.;)



    One Sunday morning, the priest noticed Little Johnny was staring up at the large plaque that hung in the foyer of the church. It was covered with names, and small American flags were mounted on either side of it. The seven-year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the priest walked up, stood beside the boy, and said quietly, “Good morning, Little Johnny.”

    “Good morning, Father,” replied the young man, still focused on the plaque. “Father Scott, what is this?” Little Johnny asked. “Well, son, it’s a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service.” Soberly, they stood together, staring at the large plaque. Little Johnny’s voice was barely audible when he asked, “Which service, the 9:45 or the 11:15?”



    kapusta: that’s a great one! i actually a while ago posted a similar joke like that, but with jews!


    Jax, I was going through the jokes sometime recently and all the jokes are repeats!



    kapusta: that’s funny, i guess we don’t even realize!


    jax: Ive noticed it many times.


    aussie, you remember every joke you hear and when? I have a joke bank in my head I remember it when I see the beginning but any other time I cant think of it.



    kapusta: No, but I have a pretty good long term memory so I will remember that I saw that joke in the cr i just wont remember who said it or anything.


    aussie: thats good. This way none of us look bad. 😉


    oh, I remember jokes, but no source…

    anyone have anything? this is the humor thread after all!



    kapusta, has your humor supply run dry?

    gimme some time and I’ll post some more.


    Yesterday I answered a knock on the door to be confronted by a well-dressed young man carrying a vacuum cleaner.

    ‘Good morning,’ said the young man. ‘If I could take a couple of minutes of your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in high-powered vacuum cleaners.’

    ‘Go away!’ I said. ‘I haven’t got any money!’, ‘I’m broke!’ and proceeded to close the door.

    Quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and pushed wide open. ‘Don’t be too hasty!’ he said. ‘Not until you have at least seen my demonstration.’ And with that, he emptied a bucket of dirt onto my hallway carpet.

    ‘If this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces of this dirt from your carpet, I will pers onally eat the remainder.’

    I stepped back and said, ‘Well I hope you’ve got a good appetite, because they cut off my electricity this morning. What part of ‘broke’ do you not understand?



    A man asked his wife what she’d like for her birthday. “I’d love to be eight again’ she replied.

    On the morning of her birthday, he arose early and made her a bowl of Coco Pops and jammy toasties!

    He took her to Luna Park and put her on every ride in the park:

    * The Death Slide

    * The Wall of Fear

    * The Screaming Monster Roller Coaster

    Five hours later she staggered out of the theme park.

    Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. Right away they went to a McDonalds where her loving husband ordered her a Happy Meal

    with extra fries and a refreshing chocolate milkshake.

    Then it was off to the movies: the latest Kiddies three hour epic cartoon, a hot dog, popcorn, all the Coke she could drink, her

    favourite lolly and M&Ms! What a fabulous adventure!

    Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed onto the bed exhausted. He leaned over his precious wife with a big smile and

    lovingly asked ‘Well dear, what was it like being eight again?’

    Her eyes slowly opened and her expression changed to one of total realisation…’I meant my dress size…’


    By following simple advice heard on the Dr. Phil show, you too can find inner peace.

    Dr. Phil proclaimed, ‘The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started and have never finished.’

    So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn’t finished, and before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of White Zinfandel, a bottle of Vodka, a package of Oreos, the remainder of an old Vicodin prescription, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos, and a box of chocolates. You have no idea how good I feel right now!

    mepal, that was GOOOOOOOD!



    After years and years of construction on the BQE, I noticed the following graffiti near a road sign that said “Construction Zone”:

    “Scientists estimate that the Sun will continue to function for another 1.1 Billion years. Too bad the construction crew will have to finish their work in the dark.”


    squeak, 😉



    mepal, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! you have no idea how I needed that!



    You are very welcome, dear Queen Cabbage Head. I got another good one today, gotta find it and post it.


    Darryl and Harold were in a mental institution. The place had an unusual annual contest, picking two of the best patients and giving them two questions. If they got them correct, they were deemed cured and free to go.

    Darryl was called into the doctor s office first and asked if he understood that he’d be free if he answered the questions correctly. Darryl said “Yes” and the doctor proceeded. “Darryl, what would happen if I poked out one of your eyes?”

    Darryl said, “I’d be half blind.”

    “That’s correct. What if I poked out both eyes?”

    “I d be completely blind.” The doctor stood up, shook Darryl s hand, and told him he was free to go.

    On Darryl’s way out, as the doctor filled out the paperwork, Darryl mentioned the exam to Harold, who was seated in the waiting room. He told him what questions were going to be asked and gave him the answers.

    So Harold went into the doctor’s office when he was called. The doctor went thru the formalities and then asked, “What would happen if I cut off one of your ears?” Remembering what Darryl had told him, he answered, “I’d be half blind.”

    The doctor looked a little puzzled, but went on. “What if I cut off the other ear?”

    “I’d be completely blind,” Harold answered.”

    “Harold, can you explain how you’d be blind?”

    “My hat would fall down over my eyes.”


    mepal, excellent!

    you reminded me of one but I’m not in the mood to write it now, I’ll try soon. remind me. 🙂



    Two blind pilots both are wearing dark glasses, one is using a guide

    dog, and the other is tapping his way along the aisle with a cane.

    Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter the

    cockpit, the door closes, and the engines start up. The passengers

    begin glancing nervously around, searching for some sign that this is

    just a little practical joke. None is forthcoming. The plane moves

    faster and faster down the runway and the people sitting in the window

    seats realize they’re headed straight for the water at the edge of the

    airport. As it begins to look as though the plane will plough in to

    the water, panicked screams fill the cabin. At that moment, the plane

    lifts smoothly into the air. The passengers relax and laugh a little

    sheepishly, and soon all retreat into t heir magazines, secure in the

    knowledge that the plane is in good hands. In the cockpit, one of the

    blind pilots turns to the other and says,”ya know, Bob, one of these

    days, they’re gonna scream too late and we’re all gonna die.”

    Bais Yaakov maydel

    A group of elderly, retired men gather each morning at a cafe in Tel Aviv. They drink their coffee and sit for hours discussing the world situation.

    Given the state of the world, problems with the Palestinians, the Iranian nuclear threat — their talks are usually depressing.

    One day, one of the men startles the others by announcing, “You know what? I am an optimist.”

    The others are shocked, but then one of them notices something fishy.

    “Wait a minute! If you’re an optimist, why do you look so worried?”

    “You think it’s easy being an optimist?!”


    mepal: The sick leave one was funny.


    Morty visits Dr. Saul, the veterinarian, and says, “My dog has a problem.”

    Dr. Saul says, “So, tell me about the dog and the problem.”

    “It’s a Jewish dog. His name is Irving and he can talk,” says Morty.

    “He can talk?” the doubting doctor asks.

    “Watch this!” Morty points to the dog and commands: “Irving, fetch!”

    Irving, the dog, begins to walk toward the door, then turns around and says, “So why are you talking to me like that? You always order me around like I’m nothing. And you only call me when you want something. And then you make me sleep on the floor, with my arthritis. You give me this fahkahkta food with all the salt and fat, and you tell me it’s a special diet. It tastes like dreck! YOU should eat it yourself! And do you ever take me for a decent walk? NO, it’s out of the house and right back home. Maybe if I could stretch out a little, the sciatica wouldn’t kill me so much! I should roll over and play dead for real for all you care!”

    Dr. Saul is amazed, “This is remarkable! So, what’s the problem?”

    Morty says, “He has a hearing problem! I said ‘Fetch,’ not ‘Kvetch’!”


    Two elderly women were out driving in a large car – both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along, they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red, but they just went on through. The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself “I must be losing it. I could have sworn we just went through a red light.” After a few more minutes, they came to another intersection and the light was red again. Again, they went right through. The woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was red and they went on through. So, she turned to the other woman and said, “Mildred, did you know that we just ran through three red lights in a row? You could have killed us both!” Mildred turned to her and said, “Oh! Am I driving?”


    A Jewish boy come home from school and tells his mother he’s been given a part in the school play. “Wonderful? What part is it?” The boy says, “I play the part of the husband.” The mother scowls and says, “You go back and tell the teacher you want a speaking part.”

    So , You wanted a Kosher Computer

    I don’t know if you know this but they are now selling Kosher computers (Made in Israel) called DELLSHALOM. It is selling at such a good price that I bought one. Mine arrived yesterday.

    If you or a friend are considering a kosher computer, you should know that there are some important upgrades and changes from the typical computer you are used to, such as:

    The cursor moves from right to left.

    It comes with two hard drives–one for fleyshedik business software and one for milchedik games.

    Instead of getting a “General Protection Fault” error, my PC now gets “Ferklempt.”

    The Chanukah screen savers include “Flying Dreidels”

    The PC also shuts down automatically at sundown on Friday evenings.

    The “Start” button has been replaced with “Let’s go!! I’m not getting any younger!” button.

    The multimedia player has been renamed to “Nu, so play my music already!”.

    When my PC is working too hard, I occasionally hear a loud “Oy Gevalt”

    There is a “monitor cleaning solution for Pesach” from Manishevitz

    After 20 minutes of no activity, my PC goes “Schloffen.”

    Computer viruses can now be cured with some matzo ball chicken soup.

    The Y2K problem has been replaced by “Year 5761-5762” issues.

    If you decide not to shut down the computer in the prescribed manner, the following message appears: “You should be ashamed of yourself.”

    When Spellcheck finds an error it prompts “Is this the best you can do!

    Artificial intelligence is a wonderful thing.

    I told my computer that today is my birthday,

    and it said I needed an upgrade.

    -A Jewish telegram: “Start worrying. Details to follow.”

    -A politician is a man who will double cross that bridge when he comes to it.

    -Too bad that all the people who know how to run this country are busy driving taxis and cutting hair.


    The Center for Disease Control has issued a medical alert about

    a highly contagious, potentially dangerous virus that is transmitted

    orally, by hand, and even electronically.

    This virus is called Weekly Overload Recreational Killer (WORK).

    If you receive WORK from your boss, any of your colleagues or

    anyone else via any means whatsoever – DO NOT TOUCH IT!!!

    This virus will wipe out your private life entirely. If you should

    come into contact with WORK you should immediately leave the premises.

    Take two good friends to the nearest liquor store and purchase

    one or both of the antidotes – Work Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE)

    and Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER). Take the

    antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from

    your system.


    not in the least bit. but that doesn’t mean i saw every episode.

    i’m almost positive it’s from the honeymooners. Ralph buys (or did he build it?) a vacuum cleaner and he’s all proud of it so he does a great job decorating the house with dirt so he could show it off to Alice. of course it doesn’t work.

    could be it’s in both. very typical.


    hey squeak, i was actually wondering how long we could push it before a mod went back and deleted the entire exchange… maybe he’s really interested in where it’s from… 😉 ok, you got it


    oh man!

    since when does a mod listen to what i have to say?


    since now.

    moish, you ready for hangman?



    sure. you go. but make it fast or i’m gonna leave


    aww, just saw that moish.;( We’ll have to schedule a raindate for that game.

    Very cute, except for two shortcomings:

    1) Need to completely abolish the use of periods (.) except after a minimum of 35 words.

    2) Every sentence must end in a verb.


    squeak:The next time I make up a joke I’ll have that in mind 😉


    haha, mepal – I was referring to the Germanification of the English language, not the syntax of your joke! (I meant that the German language has long sentences that all end in verbs)
