A Punderful Idea

I've suddenly become very busy at work. For the past week I've spent much of my time in a zombie-like state. Except for when someone approaches me and asks me to do something because then I turn into 1920s-just-entered-the-adult-world man and I'm like, "YES SIR! WHATEVER YOU SAY, SIR!!!" And then as soon as they walk away I take a quick shot of crystal meth to keep myself from falling onto the floor.

Note: "take a quick shot of crystal meth" is a euphemism for "shove candy and Diet Coke down my gullet," which is a euphemism for "destroy my body," which is a euphemism for "I can't believe I signed up for another Ironman," which is a euphemism for "I wonder if they let you use the Witness Protection Program for these types of situations," which is a euphemism for "does anyone know what a euphemism is anymore?"

Yesterday, in my my zombie-like state, I received the following Snapchat from my friend Hannah:



I'm sure it's because I haven't slept since before the war. But I laughed so hard at this that I actually had to shut my office door.

Tears. Tears, people.

Ok. Please tell me your worst pun joke in the comments. I'm apparently in the mood to laugh very hard at it.

  2. Coffee is a dangerous drink. So is tea. Once, an Indian Chief drank seven gallons of iced tea in a single sitting. That night, he drowned in his tepee.

  7. Years ago my daughter got a bunch of finger puppets for Christmas. Wolf, Princess, King, Fairy, etc. As she was putting on a show for the family, I asked her what the Prince's name was. She tried to come up with one, but my dad broke in and said "Finger Prince" I laughed so hard I cried.

    1. I don't know if you've seen this from the Animainiacs, but it's a slightly dirty take on the Finger Prince joke.

  9. Did you hear about the two tv antennae who got married? The wedding was so-so, but the reception was awesome...

    ReplyDelete
  10. Not really a joke, but a strange story/invitation: A friend of mine is engaged, but before the wedding the groom is converting to judaism. The bride is requiring him to get circumcised before they get married, therefore, they are having a bris. A bris for a 27 year old man seems a little strange, and although I think this is going to be horrifying, I kind of want to go.

    What did Ernie say to Bert when Bert asked if he wanted ice cream...Sure Bert (sherbert) Someone told me that one in the middle of the 3 Day which means that you're all hoped up on endorphins and lack of good sleep, so everyone's a bit punchy and most everything is hilarious.

    And this isn't a pun, but, elephant jokes are nearly as hilarious as puns when you're delirious:
    Why do elephants paint their toenails red? So they can hide in cherry trees. Have you ever seen an elephant in a cherry tree?! ...Well then I guess it works!
    Why do ducks have flat feet? To put out forest fires. Why do elephants have flat feet? To put out flaming ducks.

    1. Rach, these are for you. They were my 8yo son's favorite jokes for quite a while.

      Do do you not go into the jungle at 4 in the afternoon? That's when the elephants jump out of the trees.
      Why do elephants have flat feet? From jumping out of all those trees.
      Why are there no elephants on the police force? Because they have flat feet.
      What is that brown mush between elephants' toes? Slow moving tourists who were in the jungle at the wrong time.

  16. Not a pun but a great story/joke.
    My three year old nephew got really into knock knock jokes and was constantly looking for a new listener to share his latest joke with. One afternoon the Stake President and his Wife were over discussing something with my sister when my nephew went up and asked if they wanted to hear a knock knock joke. The kid is adorable so of course all conversation stopped so we could all listen.
    Nephew:"KNOCK KNOCK"
    Stake President:" Who's there?"
    Nephew: "ORANGE!"
    Stake President:"Orange who?"
    Nephew: "Orange my damn foot is stuck in the door!"
    Poor kid was just a little excited and mashed up a few jokes. Thanks to his uncles for teaching him the MADAM joke!

  21. Confucius and his scholars used to meet every month to discuss philosophical issues. A scribe kept notes on their conversation, but as the night came, he struggled to write by the light of the one candle in the room. Confucius said, "We must make a better light." So he assigned one scholar the task of building an efficient and effective lamp. The months went by, and the scholar just couldn't quite come up with a good design. Finally, Confucius asked him to bring his prototypes to their meeting for everyone to look at. Together they came up with several improvements, but it was difficult to assemble. Soon all the scholars were clustered close and dozens of hands held the lamp parts together while the main engineer secured them. When the last piece was secure, they breathed a sigh of relief and stepped back. The lamp was lit, and the whole room glowed with its light. Confucius smiled, and gently said, "Ah yes - many hands make light work."

    Yup, I made that one up many years ago. :p

  22. Once a homeless woman was walking along a beach. She found a donut. She picked it up and walked for a while. Then she dropped it. She picked it back up and continued to walk again. Then she dropped. She picked it up another time and then proceeded to drop it again. She said, "If I drop this donut one more time, then I am going to throw it into the ocean." She starts walking again and just happens to drop the donut. So, of course, she throws it in the ocean.

    Great joke, right! My friend told it to me a while back and I was rolling on the floor laughing.
    Here's another great joke:

    Once there was a young couple. They were very much in love. The guy chose to propose on a beach. His girlfriend said yes, of course. They swam and played in the waves for a few hours. Soon, it began to get dark. They were heading back to their car when the girl noticed that her new ring was missing. They searched until the sun went down, but could not find it. The girl was devastated. To make her feel better, the guy offered to take her to her favorite restaurant. She agreed and they headed over to the restaurant. Once there, she decided to order some fish for dinner. They cut open the fish to eat it, and guess what they found...

    The donut!

    A: An electric can opener.

    There are three elephants that jump off a cliff. The first two hit the ground, the last one lands in the water. Ba-dump-ssh.
