Too Bad It's Monday Jokes

Having recently completed the 1,000th Blog Post celebration, the next in line for Nick’s Bytes is the 100,000th Visitor. As of this writing, the visitor thingie (on my sidebar) reads 99,303. If visitors come by as usual, that means that visitor Number 100,000 will be by within the next week.

Please take a glance at the visitor thing and, if you turn out to be the 100,000th visitor, please tell me about it in a comment to Nick’s Bytes or in an email. Thanks.

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 It’s Monday (T.B.I.M.) as the reverse of T.G.I.F. (Thank God It’s 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.


A convicted felon was given ten years without parole for his latest crime. After 2 years in jail, he managed to escape. His escape was the lead item on the six o'clock news.

Because he had to be careful, he worked his way home taking little travelled routes, running across deserted fields and taking every precaution he could think of.

Eventually he arrived at his house and he rang the bell.

His wife opened the door and bellowed at him, "You good-for-nothing bum! Where the Hell have ya been? You escaped over six hours ago."

Scientists were preparing an experiment to ask the ultimate question.

They had worked for months gathering one each of every computer that was built. Finally the big day was at hand. All the computers were linked together. They asked the question, "IS THERE A GOD?"

Suddenly there was a loud crash, and in a brilliant explosion of silicon and plastic the computers fused into what appeared to the scientists to be one large computer in place of the many smaller ones.

One of the scientists raced to the printer as it finally output its answer. "There is now", read the printout.

The Wisdom of the Fabulous Miss Piggy

If you're properly attired, you're hired. And if you're not, I don't care how “Qualified” you may be – it will be a case of “clothes, but no cigar.”

You might try a more stationary pet, like a clam or a potato.

Home décor is a matter of personal taste although ill-conceived suggestions from husbands may spoil the overall effect.

Plants are like lamps. You plug them in and they turn right on. When they stop working, just unplug them, throw them away and plug in another.

When there is something good on TV that everyone is going to watch, the other channels should be courteous and run something like “The History of Socks.”

Many people have been to schools where they were taught useful phrases, how much to charge and – most important – what to wear.

A blonde and a redhead met for dinner after work and were watching the 6 o'clock news. A man was shown threatening to jump from the Brooklyn Bridge. The blonde bet the redhead $50 that he wouldn't jump, and the redhead replied, "I'll take that bet!"

Anyway, sure enough, he jumped, so the blonde gave the redhead the $50 she owned. The redhead said, "I can't take this, you're my friend." The blonde said, "No. A bet's a bet."

So the redhead said, "Listen, I have to admit, I saw this one on the 5 o'clock news, so I can't take your money."

The blonde replied, "Well, so did I, but I never thought he'd jump again!"

Three young boys were fighting over whose dad was the best.

"My dad is so good he can shoot an arrow, run after it, get in front of it, and catch it in his bare hands."

"My dad is so good that he can shoot a gun, run after the bullet, get in front of it and catch it in his bare hands."

"I've got you both beat. My dad's so good because he works for the city. He gets off work at 5:00 and is home by 4:30."

One day the president was out jogging and accidentally fell from a ridge into a very cold river. Three boys, playing along the river, saw the accident. Without a second thought, they jumped in the water and dragged the wet president out of the river.

After cleaning up he said, "Boys, you saved the President of the United States today. You deserve a reward. You name it, I'll give it to you."

The first boy said, "Please, I'd like a ticket to Disneyland!"

"I'll personally hand it to you," said Mr. President.

"I'd like a pair of Nike Air Turbos," the second boy said.

"I'll buy them myself and give them to you," said the grateful president.

"And I'd like a wheelchair with a stereo in it," said the third boy.

"I'll personally ... wait a second, son, you're not handicapped!"

"No, but I will be when my dad finds out I saved you from drowning."


What makes men chase women they have no intention of marrying?

The same urge that makes dogs chase cars they have no intention of driving.

The Dumbest Blonde in the World



  1. Well I totally needed this post today! And congrats on your 100,000th!!!! Was it me? Did I win anything?

    First of all, the convicted felon and him coming home to his nagging wife - it took me just a few moments to realize and it was one of those, 20 second realization of what happened---and of course, "the blonde moment" delayed laughter!

    That Newlywed show cracked me up.

    I tend to get a case of the suburbans once in a while, but nothing a doctor can't handle. ;)

    THANK YOU for making me laugh today! Love your humor!

  2. I love Bear Bryant... and the magazine cover was great! Happy Monday Nick.......

  3. LOL you put as smile on my face as you do every Monday Nick. I particularly like Miss Piggy's wisdom. :)

  4. Anyone not smiling on Monday needs to come visit yuo. Oh heck, I lol at some especially the poor child needing the wheelchair. Peace

  5. That blonde on The Newlywed Game brought back memories of my grandmother. No, she was neither a blonde nor dumb, but I do remember watching that show with her. The contestants annoyed her so, she'd say, "Just watch. 90% will be divorced in a year." I believe they staged the dumb answers or selected contestants based on their ignorance.

  6. Thanks for the great laughs, Nick!

  7. hehe... that grey cat in the first one is hillarious :) hehe..

    I don't know why, but lol katz is one of my fav things. It's just too cute :)

    Hope your week is shaping out to be a good one.

  8. The magazine cover gets my vote.

    Isn't it weird that Porky Pig wears a jacket, hat and bow-tie, but he lets his privates all hang out??? And he's a kids' cartoon character, for God's sake...

  9. Oh those cats!

    You can't beat Miss Piggy for a gal with attitude.

  10. Love those football quotes had not heard most of them. Personal favourite: Bowden Wyatt's of Tennesee! Hilarious.

  11. WOnderful laughs! Thank you!
