What do you call a Japanese drummer boy whose father has diarrhea?

The silver haired lady confronted her doctor with a complaint of pains all
over her body.
 "Be more precise," he said. "So I can help you, try pointing to some
of the places that hurt.
The silver-haired doll put her finger on her arm and said, "Ouch!"
then her finger to her hip and said, "Ouch!" and then to her rib
cage and said, "Ouch!" again.
The doctor stopped her and asked, "Were you a blonde before
your hair grayed"?
 "Why yes!" she said excitedly, "But how did you know?" 
 The Doc answered, "Your fingers broken."
A man was just waking up from anesthesia after surgery, and his wife
was sitting by his side. His eyes fluttered open and he said,
“You're beautiful!” and then he fell asleep again.
His wife had never heard him say that so she stayed by his side.
A couple minutes later hiseyes fluttered open and he said
“You're cute!”

Well, the wife was disappointed because instead of “beautiful”
it was “cute.” She said “What happened to ‘beautiful’?
His reply was “The drugs are wearing off!” 
A doctor, an engineer, a rabbi and a lawyer were debating who was
the world's first professional.
The doctor said, "It must have been a doctor. Who else could have
helped with the world's first surgery of taking a rib from Adam to
create Eve, the first woman?"
"No," said the rabbi. ''It must have been a rabbi, since the Lord
needed someone to help preach his message to Adam and
the world."
"Wait," said the engineer, "The world was created in six days
from nothing. Do you know what a master engineering feat
that must have been to create the whole world into an organized,
civilized place from utter chaos?"
"Yes, but who created the chaos?" asked the lawyer. 
Two church members were going door to door, and knocked on the door
of a woman who was not happy to see them. She told them in no uncertain
terms that she did not want to hear their message and slammed the door
in their faces. To her surprise, however, the door did not close and,
in fact, bounced back open. She tried again, really put her back into it,
and slammed the door again with the same result-the door bounced
back open.
Convinced these rude young people were sticking their foot in the door,
she reared back to give it a slam that would teach them a lesson,
when one of them said, "Ma'am, before you do that again, you really
need to move your cat."


  1. Hahaahaaaa...Nick, You made my day(rather, Night, 'cause it's 11 p.m. now). What fantastic jokes you get and what a fantastic set of friends you must have who share such wisdom! Convey my love to all of them.
    (Am half way through the Words to live by but couldn't resist commenting)

  2. The last cartoon is what my pastor would want on his tombstone.

  3. Good words to live by but the one I laughed out loud at was the woman shutting the cat in the door. :) ec

  4. I liked the "do not disturb" cartoon best!

  5. VISHWA: Thank you! To bring a smile to a face or two is the reason I began sharing these jokes. On many occasions I have opened my emails to find something a friend sent that brought a smile to my face and set a new course for my day.

    When I consider my friends who email me these, it really comes down to a half dozen who regularly share. I shall pass on to them your appreciation.

    ABBY: That was another cartoon from the book I received about 15 years ago.

    MREDDIE: I found that one the funniest, too; however, it the cat had been Alex, he would have screeched and run the first time the door hit him!

    THOMAS: I sent that one to a couple of clergy who are about ready to retire. I think they appreciate the idea, too. I don’t think they want to wait for a tombstone to experience it, though.

  6. I totally enjoyed those quotes.Haven't got past the jokes yet.But Thank you.This is one feature of your blog, I am begining to look forward to.
