National Tell a Joke Day is August 16 – Submit Your Jokes for Prizes
Have you heard the one about an Oxford graduate walking into a bar in Texas?
It goes something like this: An Oxford graduate walks into a bar in Texas and one of the patrons says, “Howdy stranger, where you from?” The graduate says, “I’m from a place where we do not end our sentences in prepositions.” so the Texan says, “Oh I’m sorry, where you from, jackass?”
Do you have any good jokes? You can win prizes just by sending us your jokes.
I can remember some really corny jokes:
- Why did the banana go to the hospital? Because he wasn’t peeling well.
- How do locomotives hear? Through the engineers.
I couldn’t pass up this blonde joke from the Laugh Factory:
A blonde and a redhead have a ranch. They have just lost their bull. The women need to buy another, but only have $500. The redhead tells the blonde, “I will go to the market and see if I can find one for under that amount. If I can, I will send you a telegram.” She goes to the market and finds one for $499. Having only one dollar left, she goes to the telegraph office and finds out that it costs one dollar per word. She is stumped on how to tell the blonde to bring the truck and trailer. Finally, she tells the telegraph operator to send the word “comfortable.” Skeptical, the operator asks, “How will she know to come with the trailer from just that word?” The redhead replies, “She’s a blonde so she reads slow: ‘Come for ta bull.'”
