Joke of The Day


If the #2 pencil is the most popular,  why is it still #2?

Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?
Isn't it a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do "practice"?

If a turtle doesn't have a shell,   is he homeless or naked?
If the police arrest a mime,   do they tell him he has the right to remain silent?
If one synchronized swimmer drowns,   do the rest drown, too?

If you throw a cat out a car window does it become kitty litter?

If nothing sticks to Teflon, how do they stick Teflon on the pan?


How do they get a deer to cross at that yellow road sign?

If it's tourist season, why can't we shoot them?

What's another word for thesaurus?

Why is abbreviation such a long word?

Why is there an expiration date on my sour cream container?

How do you know when it's time to tune your bagpipes?

Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

Does fuzzy logic tickle?

If corn oil comes from corn, where does baby oil come from?

When a cow laughs does milk come up its nose?

Why do they put Braille on the number pads of drive-through bank machines?

How did a fool and his money GET together?

Do they have reserved parking for non-handicap people at the Special Olympics?

Why do they call it a TV set when you only get one?

Do radioactive cats have 18 half-lives?

If a book about failures doesn't sell, is it a success?

Can you be a closet


If a stealth bomber crashes in a forest, will it make a sound?

When it rains, why don't sheep shrink?

Should vegetarians eat animal crackers?
