corny for sure!

A duck walks into a pharmacy and asks for a lip balm.

The pharmacist tells the duck that the lip balm is available in strawberry or plain flavour, and asks the duck which he would prefer.

After some thought, the duck says he'll take the strawberry.

Certainly sir, says the pharmacist, and bags it for him. Now how would you like to pay - cash or credit card?

Neither says the duck. Put it on my bill!

Valerie said...

This one I'm totally entering.... I love both the kits, and I can do corny jokes!!

This is one of the favorites in our house:

What goes "HaHaHaHaHa- CLUNK"?

A man laughing his head off!!!

Told to me by my son :-)

Karen Moody said...

This makes me laugh every time and I have no idea why:

Why did the farmer get an award?

Because he was outstanding in his field!

(I know, I hear the "ughh"s already....

Candlepick said...

"Don't pAtronize me!"
"It's pronounced patronize."

(This is a British comedian's joke, sorry I can't remember his name to give credit where it's due.)

Three men were sitting together bragging about how they had given their new wives duties.

The first man had married a woman from Alabama and bragged that he had told his wife she was going to do all the dishes and house cleaning. He said it took a couple days but on the third day he came home to a clean house and the dishes were done.

The second man had married a woman from Florida. He bragged that he had given his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking. On the first day he didn't see any results, but the next day it was better. By the third day, his house was clean, the dishes were done and he had a huge dinner on the table.

The third man had married a tita (a woman from Hawai'i with an attitude). He boasted that he told her that her duties were to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the second day he didn't see anything, but by the third day most of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye. Enough to fix himself a bite to eat, load the dishwasher, and telephone a landscaper.

I would love to win the ladybug hat stuff!! I love it!!

Your driving the bus, twenty people get off and five get on, thirteen more get off and twenty three get on. Ten more people get off and fifteen get on. Five people get off and only one gets on. What is the color of the drivers eyes?

answer: Whatever color your eyes are!
Works best when said aloud because the listener gets lost, typed out it's easy to figure out. I got this off of the movie "Because I Said So"

pastelly said...

totally funny...

Q: What did one wall say to the other?
A: I'll meet you at the corner!

angie said...

This is my 8 yr old's current favorite:

Two women, one man and a duck walked into a bar...'d think at least one of them would have seen it.

Dealonnia said...

A guy from Texas wanted to become a chicken farmer so he did research. Thinking he knew everything. He orders 6000 baby chicks and buries them with their heads out..they all die..he orders 6000 more baby chicks and plants them with their heads down they all he calls Texas Aggie University and asked for a professor with knowledge of chicken farming. The professor tells the Texan that he cannot tell him way the chicks are not growing without a soil sample!

A police officer patrolling in his car looks over and sees a woman knitting while she is driving. Pulling up along side of her, he shouts loudly out his open window... "Pull over!"

"No," she shouts back just as loudly, shaking her head, "a pair of socks!"

Linda T. said...

A man is out mowing his grass when his attractive Blonde neighbor comes out of the house, goes to the mailbox, looks inside, and slams the door.

A while later the Blonde reappears from the house storms out to the mailbox, opens it, and slams the door even harder.

As the man is edging the grass, the Blonde reappears and stalks out to the mailbox once again only to slam the door as hard as she can.

The man finally says,
"Is something wrong?"

to which she replies
"Yes, there is something wrong. My computer keeps telling me YOU'VE GOT MAIL."

When my 7 year old grandson told me this joke, I had to laugh because he expected me to. I don't think he had any idea it wasn't brand new.
Knock knock.
Who's there?
Boo who?
Oh, don't cry. It's just a joke.
What a great combination of bugs for these hats. My friend, Janet, is a beetle, and I am a grasshopper.
Happy days,

Janet Wilson said...

I just made this one up...kind of....
Beetle lives in Seattle and Grasshopper lives in Baltimore.

Grasshopper says to beetle, "I hope I haven't worried you too much since I didn't write you last week."
Beetle say, "that's OK, I was kind of worried but I didn't want to bug you."

Love the hat styles and yarn. Joanie can have mine if I win 'cuz I don't know how to knit.

Janet aka ms beetle

A very rude and cheeky parrot was put into the refrigerator to cool off his temper. When he came out he was a reformed bird who spoke very politely. Later in the day he inquired "If I may be so bold, what did the chicken do?"

I don't know if that is a joke - per se - but it amuses me!

bethanyg said...

A man goes to his therapist and says "I don't know what's wrong. All day long, I think 'I'm a teepee, I'm a wigwam, I'm a teepee, I'm a wigwam!'"

Doctor says "You need to relax! You're too tents!"

(Tense! Get it? groan!

This is the cheesiest pun I know.

For some people the only puns they make are about dairy products, because the rest are just too cheesy. When they think of one, they tend to milk it for all it's worth. Usually I don't think they're gouda enough, but we could find a whey to cream off the best ones.
I cheddar to think what they'll come out with next.

So Ole is on his death bed upstairs and Lena is in da kitchen, baking. Gradually the aroma of fresh lefse wafts upward and Ole gets a whiff, which revives him. He slowly crawls out of bed and downstairs. He is just reaching up to the griddle, his mouth watering, for a fresh lefse when Lena notices him: "Dat's for da funeral, Ole! Now git back to bed!"

Elaine said...


What's gray, has big ears and a trunk?

A mouse going on vacation.

Another 3 year old's joke!

EJ said...

It isn't going to be easy to top (or bottom) some of those jokes, but I can try. It sounds like we're aiming for the under 4th grade set.

Where do horses live?

In the NEIGHborhood.

Get it? I love when a kid tells a joke and then asks whether you get it and tries to explain it.

It's amazing how long kids' jokes endure, and how they always think they are new, and worse yet, funny.

A newspaper! So many variations, so little time.

earthmother said...

How many clowns does it take to change a lightbulb? 11, because you need 10 to make the pyramid to get to the ceiling, then the one more to put in the light bulb. And they need a pyramid because they can't fit a ladder in the clown car after all the clowns get in.

Martha said...

A fish ran into a wall.

A three-legged dog walked into a saloon in the Old West. He said to the bartender, "I'm looking for the man who shot my paw".

Tara said...

A ball of Lopi with a chip on his shoulder walks into a crowded bar, orders a drink, and sits down. A skein of Cascade 220 passes by and accidentally bumps the Lopi. The Lopi jumps up, hand going for his gun. The bartender steps in:

"Hey, watch it. You may be rough, but he's worsted."

Melinda said...

Here's the very first joke I ever came home with from preschool... as told by my mom:

Envision a chubby 3yo with strawberry blond ringlets trying to stifle her giggles and wriggling with excitement. She says, "How can you tell Ronald McDonald from everyone else in a nudist colony?"

After a smirk and the appropriate pause Mom says, "I don't know, how?"

Little girl burst into laughter and squeals, "Because he's the one with the sesame seed buns!"

Either way, I hope this made you laugh.... but I absolutely love the ladybug hat!
