Two confirmed bachelors sat talking. Their conversation drifted from politics to cooking.

"I got a cookbook once," said the first, "but I could never do anything with it."

"Too much fancy cooking in it, eh?" asked the second.

"You said it. Every one of the recipes began the same way - Take a clean dish and...."

A woman is in the shower when she hears the doorbell ring. She yells out, "Who is it?" The person at the door yells back, "Blind man!" She thinks for a moment, shrugs, and walks out of the shower to the door. The man is very startled and says, "Um....where should I put these blinds?"

I heard that on Regis and Kathie Lee when I was a little kid and it's stuck with me ever since.

Camila said...

A mama skunk had two baby skunks, In and Out. She could never keep track of them -- whenever Out was in, In was out, and whenever In was in, Out was out.

One day In got well and truly lost -- the mama skunk couldn't find him anywhere. So after hours of searching, she sent his brother Out out to go find In and bring him in, and Out promptly walked back in the house with his brother In in tow.

"How on earth did you find your brother In so quickly?" the amazed mama skunk asked.

"It was easy!" Out said. "In stinked!"

Instinct? Geddit? Hahahahaha... ha. Camila

A linguistics professor was lecturing to his English class one day. "In English," he said, "A double negative forms a positive. In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative."

A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah, right."

Marcia said...

Oh man, last cookbook and this one, I have already!!

A beautiful blonde walks into a bank in Manhattan to borrow money. She wants to take a $10,000 loan. She's leaving for Europe in two days and needs the money. She'll be gone three months.

The banker is happy to loan her the money at 10% interest, as long as she has collateral. She offers up her Porsche. The next day, she brings in the car, the banker parks it in the garage, and they give her a check. She deposits it into a savings account, leaves for Europe, and leaves the money untouched.

When she returns three months later, she comes by to get the car and return the $10,000 (she's earned interest!). The banker is confused about why she would borrow money and not touch it for three months.

Her response: "Where else in Manhattan can you park a car for 3 months for only $250?"

Jen said...

This is really a physical joke, but here goes, let's read it like a play:

You (somewhat frantically, waving hands on either side of "Its" head): You're running through the woods, you're running through the woods! Close your eyes!

["It" closes eyes"]
[You soundly thunk "It" on the forehead with the palm of your hand.]

You: "Don't close your eyes when you're running through the woods!"

Ann said...

Ok so a guy sits down at the bar and orders a drink. He hears a little voice say "nice tie". He looks around and there's no one there. He thinks it must be his imagination so he continues drinking, he hears the voice again say "nice shirt". He looks around again- no one's there. He's starting to get alittle worried thinking where is this voice coming from? He calls the bartender over and asks "I keep hearing this voice it said nice tie and nice shirt, what's going on" and the bartender says "oh it's the peanuts, their complementary".

Another one I like...

A blonde gets on a plane to L.A. and sits in first class. The attendant, knowing the passenger list does not include this young lady, asks her to relocate to her seat in coach.

"I'm young, blonde, beautiful and on my way to Hollywood, and I'm going first class!" the passenger responds.

The attendant, being a bit flummoxed by this, informs the captain. The captain walks back and repeats the request.

"I'm young, blonde, beautiful and on my way to Hollywood, and I'm going first class!" she again responds.

The co-pilot, upon hearing the story, walks back and speaks very quietly to the blonde. She jumps up, hugs the co-pilot, and heads to the back of the plane.

"Wow!" says the attendant. "How did you convince her to move?"

The co-pilot responds, "No big deal. I just told her first class wasn't going to L.A."

Here's an old blonde joke:

Ren said...

My mother says I told this joke non-stop to everyone for about a month when I was five.

Me: Ask me what I had for breakfast!
Victim: What did you have for breakfast?
M: Pea green soup. Ask me what I had for lunch!
V: What did you have for lunch?
M: Pea green soup. Ask me what I had for dinner!
V: What did you have for dinner?
M: Pea Green Soup. Ask me what I did after dinner!
V: What did you do after dinner?
M: Pea Green Soup!

I remain grateful that video cameras were not in common usage during my 'snorty giggles' stage.

One night, the Potato family - Mother Potato and her three daughters - sat down to dinner. Midway through the meal, the eldest daughter spoke up. "Mother Potato?" she said. "I have an announcement to make."

"And what might that be?" said Mother, seeing the obvious excitement in her eldest daughter's eyes.

"Well," replied the daughter, with a proud but sheepish grin, "I'm getting married!"

The other daughters squealed with surprise as Mother Potato exclaimed, "Married! That's wonderful! And who are you marrying, eldest daughter?"

"I'm marrying a Russet!"

"A Russet!" replied Mother Potato with pride. "Oh, a Russet is a fine tater, a fine tater indeed!"

As the family shared in the eldest daughter's joy, the middle daughter spoke up. "Mother, I too, have anannouncement."

"And what might that be?" asked Mother Potato.

Not knowing quite how to begin, the middle daughter paused, then said with conviction, "I, too, am getting married!"

"You, too!"Mother Potato said with joy. "That's wonderful! Twice the good news in one evening! And who are you marrying, middle daughter?"

"I'm marrying an Idaho," beamed the middle daughter.

"An Idaho!" said Mother Potato with joy. "Oh, an Idaho is a fine tater, a fine tater indeed!"

Once again, the room came alive with laughter and excited plans for the future, when the youngest Potato daughter interrupted. "Mother? Mother Potato?

Umm, I, too, have an announcement to make."

"Yes?" said Mother Potato with great anticipation.

"Well," began the youngest Potato daughter with the same sheepish grin as her eldest sister before her,"I hope this doesn't come as a shock to you, but I am getting married, as well!"

"Really?" said Mother Potato with sincere excitement. "All of my lovely daughters married! What wonderful news! And who, pray tell, are you marrying, youngest daughter, dear?"

"I'm marrying Dan Rather!"

"Dan Rather?!"

Mother Potato scowled suddenly. "But he's just a common tater!"
