Too Bad It's Monday Jokes & Humor

In the spring of 2005, shortly after I began blogging, I began posting the jokes I had received in my previous week’s email under the title Too Bad Its Monday (T.B.I.M.) as the reverse of T.G.I.F. (Thank God Its Friday). So again I am going to share with you what I consider to be the best of the humor I have received in the past week. You may not agree with all of my choices, but if even one joke brings you a smile on T.B.I.M., my goal has been achieved.

[Note: I have heard this joke in several versions with the protagonist being from different Christina denominations. Reproduced below is the one I received in my email last week].

A new priest at his first mass was so nervous he could hardly speak. After mass he asked the monsignor how he had done. The monsignor replied, "When I am worried about getting nervous on the pulpit, I put a glass of vodka next to the water glass. If I start to get nervous, I take a sip."

So the next Sunday he took the monsignor's advice. At the beginning of the sermon, he got nervous and took a drink. He proceeded to talk up a storm. Upon return to his office after mass, he found the following note on his door from the monsignor:

1. Sip the Vodka, don't gulp.

2. There are 10 commandments, not 12.

3. There are 12 disciples, not 10.

4. Jesus was consecrated, not constipated.

5. Jacob wagered his donkey, he did not bet his ass.

6. We do not refer to Jesus Christ as the late J.C.

7. The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are not referred to as Daddy, Junior, and the Spook.

8. David slew Goliath, he did not kick the shit out of him.

9. When David was hit by a rock and knocked off his donkey, don't say he was stoned off his ass.

10. We do not refer to the cross as the Big T!

11. When Jesus broke the bread at the Last Supper he said, "Take this and eat it, for it is my body", he did not say, "Eat me."

12. The Virgin Mary is not referred to as the, "Mary with the Cherry".

13. The recommended grace before a meal is not: "Rub-A-dub-dub, thanks for the grub, yeah God". and finally...

14. Next Sunday there will be a taffy-pulling contest at St. Peter's, not a peter-pulling contest at St. Taffy's.

A bus stops and two Italian men get on. They sit down and engage in an animated conversation. The lady sitting behind them ignores them at first, but her attention is galvanized when she hears one of the men say the following:

"Emma coma first. Den I coma. Den two asses coma together. I coma once-a-more. Two asses, they coma together again. I coma again and pee twice. Then I coma one lasta time."

"You foul mouthed swine," retorted the lady indignantly. "In this country we don't talk about our sex lives in public!"

"Hey, coola down lady," said the man. "Who talkin' abouta sexa? I'm justa tellin' my frienda how to spella 'Mississippi'."

A blonde and a guy were out on a date and they ended up at ''Lovers' Cove'' where they were making out. The guy thought that things were going pretty good and maybe he would get lucky tonight, so he thought that he would ask her if she wanted to go in the back seat.

''NO!'' yelled the blonde.

The guy just figured that she wasn't ready yet. Things got pretty hot and the guy thought he would try again.

''NO!'' the blonde yelled again.

Things got even hotter and the blond was down to her bra and the guy even had her pants unzipped.

''Do you wanna go in the back seat yet?'' asked the guy.

''For the last time, NO!'' said the blonde.

Frustrated, the guy asked, ''Well, why the hell not?''

The blonde looked at him and said, ''Because I wanna stay up here with you.''

[Note: The following is a very old joke that I first heard when I was a teenager. When it was emailed to me, I was rather surprised that it’s still around].

A farmer goes out one day and buys a brand new stud rooster for his chicken coop. The rooster struts over to the old rooster and says, "OK, old fart, time to retire."

The old rooster replies, "Come on, you can't handle ALL these chickens. Look what it's done to me. Can't you just let me have the two old hens over in the corner?"

The young rooster says, "Beat it! You're washed up and I'm taking over."

The old rooster says "I'll tell you what, young stud, I'll race you around the farmhouse. Whoever wins gets exclusive domain over the entire chicken coop."

The young rooster laughs, "You know you don't stand a chance old man, so just to be fair, I'll give you a head start."

The old rooster takes off running. About 15 seconds later the young rooster takes off after him. They round the front of the farmhouse and the young rooster has closed the gap. He's already about 5 inches behind the old rooster and gaining fast.

The farmer, meanwhile, is sitting on the front porch when he sees the roosters running by, one right behind the other. He grabs his shotgun and BOOM! -- he blows the young rooster to bits.

The farmer sadly shakes his head, "Damn...third gay rooster I've bought this month."

A woman asks her husband if he'd like some breakfast. "Bacon and eggs, perhaps a slice of toast? Maybe a nice sectioned grapefruit, and a cup of fresh coffee?"

He declines. "It's this Viagra," he says, "It's really taken the edge off my appetite."

At lunch time, she asks if he would like something. "A bowl of home made soup, maybe, with a cheese sandwich? Or how about a plate of snacks and a glass of milk?"

Again he declines. "No, thanks. It's this Viagra," he says, "It's really taken the edge off my appetite."

At dinner time, she asks if he wants anything to eat, offering to go to the cafe and buy him a burger supper. "Or would you rather I make you a pizza from scratch? Or, how about a tasty stir fry? That'll only take a couple of minutes."

Once more, he declines. "Again, thanks, but it's this Viagra. It's really taken the edge off my appetite."

"Well, then", she says, "Would you mind getting off me? I'm STARVING!"

While the pope was visiting the USA, he told the driver of his limo that he has the sudden urge to drive. The driver was a good Catholic man, and would not ever dream of questioning the pope's authority. So the pope sat at the wheel, while his driver got in the back.

They were traveling down the road doing between 70 and 80 mph, when a policeman happened to see them. As he pulled them over, he called in to headquarters reporting a speeding limo, with a VIP inside it.

The chief asked: "Who is in the limo, the mayor?"

The policeman told him: "No, someone more important than the mayor."

Then the chief asked "Is it the governor?"

The policeman answered: "No, someone more important than the governor."

The chief finally asked: "Is it the President?"

The policeman answered: "No, someone even more important than the President."

This made the chief very angry and he bellowed: "Now who is more important than the President?!"

The policeman calmly whispered: "I'll put it to you this way chief. I don't know who this dude is, but he has the pope as his chauffeur."

Murphy, a dishonest lawyer, bribed one of his client's jurors to hold out for a charge of manslaughter, fearing the murder charge being brought by the state. The jury was out for days before returning with the verdict: manslaughter!

Later, as Murphy paid off the corrupt juror, he asked him if he had a hard time convincing the other jurors to see things his way.

"Boy, did I!" said the juror. "They kept voting to acquit!"



  1. Love the jokes, Nick. The young priest one has been around a while but it's a good is the gay rooster. Hard to believe they're still being recycled, isn't it?

    As for the cat pics...I love that website and have put some pics of Mitzi and Bella on with captions, but I don't think they've been successful.

    Purrs to Alex from my two.

    Take care.

  2. Again I wake up on time on Monday ONLY for the jokes.

  3. I look more like the top pic on a Monday moanin'...

    Thanks for the laughs Nick! :)

  4. I made it here early today! I really needed the jokes to wake me up. I’m still chucking over the kid trying to feed the kangaroos and all of the katz. Thank you, nick.

  5. PS: That cat really does look like kate blanchett.

  6. Maybe those are old jokes but I never heard them before. Thank you.

  7. I'm like Jaime. I haven't heard those old jokes before, either.

    But then, I rarely remember a joke, so maybe I've heard them a hundred times!

    Thanks Nick!

  8. I am with Jaimie and Carol. I think funny is funny even if it is old.

  9. Remember Caturday and keep it lazy.. THAT was the kicker for me! So funny!

    And I loved the blonde joke too.


  10. I like the Katz. Really, I think I'd enjoy them almost as much without the captions- I just like cats.

  11. glad I popped over... believe it or not, I hadn't heard any of them before, so thanks for the laugh and the smile on my face Nick

  12. Adorable!!!!!!!!! I needed the smile!!!

  13. Thanks for the jokes, Nick.

  14. Old geezer crossing made me spew my tea!

    You're a godsend, truly!

  15. Roosters, LOL! Good thing I wasn't reading with my boys - when I first saw it, I thought, "Oh, good, a new joke for the dinner table!" I'll have to save it for my husband instead. ;)

    I know I don't often comment here, but I *do* enjoy your TBIM posts. :)

  16. oh nick, well done!! i always love your tbim jokes, but these were priceless!!

  18. I do like short books. :) The katz were great as always. ec

  19. Outstanding humor, Reverend Saint. As always!

  20. Nick, love your TBIM column. It's a great fixture and the only thing that makes Mondays better for me than your instalment is that, by the time your column is published, Monday here 'down under' has already well and truly passed me by! Cheers, Brandon

  21. Nick,
    Watch those "geezer" jokes.....they are hitting too close to home.

    I love the shortest books ever written.
