Daily Laughter

Good start to a Tuesday Morning, are you sitting comfortably, then shall we begin..

(You will be sorry he he he.)

What did the tie say to the hat?

You go on ahead and I'll hang around!

What did the picture say to the wall?

I've got you covered!

What is the best thing to take into the desert?

A thirst aid kit!

Who was the first underwater spy?

James Pond!

What is hairy and coughs?

A coconut with a cold!

What do you call a foreign body in a chip pan?

An Unidentified Frying Object!

Why did the lazy man want a job in a bakery?

So he could loaf around!

They do get better honestly

Too old to be young

Too young to be old

Too old for Armani

Too young for a cardie

Too old for flash trainers

Too young for carpet slippers

Too old to work

Too young to retire

Too old to be cool

Too young to be wise

Too old to dare

Too young to care

Too old to mention

To young for a pension

Too old to be a lager lout

Too young to be a saga lout -

I’m in my middle years now

And my new car is a wow

It’s fast, new and sporty

Just the opposite of me

It is sleekly lined

With its curves well defined

It has a nice interior

The leather is quite superior

My only complaint would be

The bucket seats you see

As they are made to the design

Of a smaller bucket than mine -

A Measured Reflection

When I was young

I was broad minded

And narrow hipped

Now I’m middle aged

My proportions

Appear to have flipped

She cook’s and cleans

And keep’s things neat

And with five in the house That’s no mean feat

There’s just one question Though that has me beat

Tell me why can she never

Work the toilet seat -

Does my bum look big in this?

Well is the answer no or yes

Actually you have a big bum So stop blaming it on the dress -

Despite winning twenty million pound

My feet are still firmly on the ground

So I am the same despite my good news

But I am wearing much better shoes -

Early Monday morning, the postman rang my bell,

Delivery for Mr Scratchmann, your computer stuff from Dell.

Early Tuesday morning the postman hammered on my door,

Morning, Max, he chirruped, here’s the boards for your new floor.

Early Wednesday morning, he shook me rough from sleep,

You knitting a new jumper, Max? Look, I’ve brought your sheep!

Early Thursday morning he rattled my old latch,

Get out and fix your leaky roof, I’ve brought your brand new thatch!

Early Friday morning he just threw me from my bed,

Here’s you pet iguana, Max, I think the bugger’s dead!

But on Saturday I was ready, up quite early and awake,

When the postman handed to me a three-pillared wedding cake.

So on Sunday I was tired and quite ready to sleep in,

When his voice cried, Overtime, Max, where do want this wheely bin.

Radiator guy won’t you come out tonight,

My heart is cold, my head is light,

Come let the water through my system,

Heat my pipes, catalogue them, list them,

Stoke my boiler, clank my chain,

Make my heating work again.

There is a natural order in life

There are rules to be understood

For example bearing children

There is a time limit on motherhood

The term “child bearing years”

Was coined for a very simple reason

So that everything in life

Can have its time and season

A Woman over fifty is ill equipped

To show a baby proper care

As she would put the baby down

And then forget where -

1. Ninety-nine percent of lawyers give the rest a bad name.

31. I took an IQ test and the results were negative.

32. Okay, who stopped the payment on my reality check?

Little Johnny wanted to be an accountant, so he went for an aptitude test:

Tester: If I give you two Rabbits, and two rabbits, and another two rabbits, how many rabbits have you got?

Little Johnny : SEVEN!

Tester : No, listen carefully again. If I give you two Rabbits, and two rabbits, and another two rabbits, how many rabbits have you got?

Little Johnny : SEVEN!

Tester : Let's try this another way. If Igive you two bottles of beer, and twobottles of beer, and another two bottles of beer, how many bottles of beer have you got?

Little Johnny : SIX.

Tester : Good! Now, if I give you two Rabbits, and two rabbits, and another two rabbits, how many rabbits have you got?

Little Johnny : SEVEN!

Tester : How on Earth do you work out that three lots of two rabbits is seven?

Little Johnny: I've already got one rabbit at home!

The pretty teacher was concerned with one of her young students so she took him aside after class one day.

"Little Johnny, why has your school work been so poor lately?"

"I'm in love," replied Little Johnny.

Holding back an urge to smile, the teacher asked, "with whom?"

"With you!" he said. "But Little Johnny," said the teacher gently,"don't you see how silly that is? Sure I'd like a husband of my own someday... but I don't want a child."

"Oh, don't worry," said Little Johnny reassuringly, "I'll use a rubber!".

One day a nursery school teacher saysto the class, "Who can use the word DEFINITELY in a sentence?

A little girl jumps up and says...

"The sky is definitely blue!"

The teacher replies, "Oh Sorry Amy, but the sky can also be gray, or orange..."

A little boy quickly says...

"Trees are definitely green!"

Teacher replies, "Oh Sorry Michael, but in the autumn the trees change colour..."

Little Johnny from the back of the class stands up and shouts,

"Does a fart have lumps?"

The teacher looks horrified and says,"Johnny! Of course not!!!"

"Then I have DEFINITELY sh1t my pants!" ( Sorry I had to slip this one in my turn for a laugh)

Last year I replaced all the windows in my house with that expensive casement type with shutters. Today, I got a call from the contractor who installed them. He was complaining that the work had been completed a whole year ago and I still hadn't paid for them.

Hellloo............ Just because I have fair hair doesn't mean that I am automatically stupid. So, I told him just what his fast talking sales guy had told me last year, that in ONE YEAR these windows would pay for themselves!

Hellloo? It's been a year! I told him. There was only silence at the other end of the line, so I finally just hung up.

He never called back.

I bet he felt like an idiot.

My Dad is cleaning out my grandmother's house (she died in December) and he brought me an old Royal Crown Cola bottle.

In the bottle top was a stopper with a bunch of holes in it. I knew immediately what it was, but my daughter had no idea. She thought they had tried to make it a salt shaker or something. I knew it as the bottle that sat on the end of the ironing board to 'sprinkle' clothes with because we didn't have steam irons. Man, I am old!

How many of these do you remember?

Head lights dimmer switches on the floor.

Ignition switches on the dashboard.

Trouser leg clips for bicycles without chain guards.

Soldering irons you heat on a gas burner.

Using hand signals for cars without turn signals.

What stories do the ship captain's children like to hear?

Ferry tales!

Why did Robin Hood only steal from the rich?

Because the poor have nothing worth taking!

Who invented fractions?

Henry the 1/8!

What's an insect's favourite sport?


What kind of car does Mickey Mouse's wife drive?

A minnie van!

Is this a second hand shop?

Yes Sir Good. Can you fit one to my watch then please!

How did Noah see the animals in the Ark at night?

By flood lighting!

Count all the ones that you remember not the ones you were told about.

Your age ratings is at the bottom.

Coffee shops with tableside juke boxes

Home milk delivery in glass bottles

Party lines on the telephone

Newsreels before the movie

TV test patterns that came on at night after the last show and were there until TV shows started again in the morning (there were only 3 channels [if you were fortunate]).


45 RPM records

Wash tub wringers


Metal ice trays with lever

Blue flashbulb

Cork popguns

Ford Zephyrs

If you remembered 4-6 = You are getting older

If you remembered 7-10 = Don't tell your age,
