It says in the Bible that God made man in His own image (Genesis 1:26). Humans have a sense of humour; so I suppose it is safe to say that God too has a sense of humour. At least I hope I'm right - otherwise we're all in big trouble !!!

With this in mind, here are some jokes to lighten your day. I hope you like them.

A man runs to the doctor and says, "Doctor, you've got to help me. My wife thinks she's a chicken!"

The doctor asks, "How long has she had this condition?"

"Two years," says the man.

"Then why did it take you so long to come and see me?" asked the shrink.

The man shrugs his shoulders and replies, "We needed the eggs."


A man is stumbling by the riverside totally drunk when he comes upon a preacher baptising people in the river. He staggers to the river’s edge and subsequently falls in. The preacher turns around and is almost overcome by the smell of alcohol. He asks the drunk, “Are you ready to find Jesus?”

The drunk answers, “Yes I am”.

So the preacher grabs him and dunks him in the water. He pulls him up and asks the drunk, “Brother, have you found Jesus?”

The drunk replies, “No, I haven’t”.

The preacher shocked at the answer, dunks him into the water again for a little longer this time. He again pulls him out of the water and asks, “Have you found Jesus, my brother?”

The drunk answers again, “No, I haven’t”.

Bu this time the preacher is at his wits end and he dunks the drunk in the water again, but this time he holds him down for about 30 seconds, and when he begins kicking his arms and legs, he pulls him up. The preacher again asks the drunk, “For the love of God, have you found Jesus?”

The drunk wipes his eyes and catches his breath and says to the preacher, “Are you sure this is where he fell in?”


A man sitting in a library reads the births and deaths statistics. After a few minutes he whispers to the person next to him: “Do you realise, every time I breathe in and out someone dies”. The other man replies: “Try a better mouthwash”.


A Social Worker visits an elderly lady once a week to check that she is OK. As she is about to leave the old lady asks the Social Worker “Do you like Brazil Nuts?”

“Oh yes” replies the Social Worker, and the old lady gives her a paper bag full of shelled Brazil Nuts – beautiful tasty white Brazil Nuts.

The following week the same thing happens again – the old lady gives the Social Worker a bag of Brazil Nuts, which she takes to work and shares with her colleagues. This goes on week after week.

One week the Social Worker asks: “If you don’t like Brazil Nuts, why do you keep buying them?”

The old lady replies: “My son buys them for me, but I have no teeth. So I just suck the chocolate and put them back in the bag”.


A woman was admitted to hospital with two burnt ears. Apparently she answered the phone whilst she was ironing. The doctor asked her how she burnt the second ear. She replied that it happened when she phoned for an ambulance.


The preacher was telling the congregation about the evils of drink. “To drink is to follow Satan. Drink is bad for you. It will lead you to damnation”.

To demonstrate his point he put two glasses on the pulpit. One contained water and one contained whisky. He then produced a small box containing two worms that he had dug from the garden before the service began. He placed a worm in the glass of water and it floated about merrily. He then put the second worm in the glass of whisky and after wriggling for a few seconds it died.

“What does this tell you?” he asked.

A member of the congregation replied, “If you have worms drink whisky”.


The party was very successful and everyone was rather drunk. One of the guests approaches the hostess and slurs: “Do lemons have feathers?” She says no. “In that case I must have squeezed the canary in my drink”.


A very old man in his nineties is coerced by a friend to buy a lottery ticket. As luck would have it his ticket wins many millions of pounds. His friend is very reluctant to tell the old man of his good fortune in case the shock gives him a heart attack and kills him.

He decides to ask the vicar to break the news gently to him. The vicar agrees, and on his next visit to the old man he broaches the subject carefully.

“Tell me my friend,” he starts “life can be somewhat unpredictable at times. What would you do for instance if by some chance you were to win millions of pounds on the lottery?”.

The old man thinks for a while and says: “Well vicar, I’ve had a long and happy life. At my age I don’t need millions of pounds … I have no family or close friends. If I won that much on the lottery I would give it all to you”.

The shock of hearing this gives the vicar a heart attack and he dies.


The doctor gave the medicine to the patient and explained that he should take it on alternate days. He said: “Take the medicine on Monday, skip Tuesday, take it on Wednesday, skip Thursday, take it Friday, skip Saturday and so on …”

A man went to visit a friend and was amazed to find him playing chess with his dog. He watched the game in astonishment for a while. "I can hardly believe my eyes!" he exclaimed. "That's the smartest dog I've ever seen."

"Nah, he's not so smart," the friend replied. "I've beaten him three games out of five."


A preacher is buying a parrot. "Are you sure it doesn't scream, yell, or swear?" asked the preacher.

"Oh absolutely. It's a religious parrot," the storekeeper assures him.

"Do you see those strings on his legs? When you pull the right one, he
says "Halleluiah !!!" and when you pull on the left he shouts "Amen Amen."

"Wonderful!" says the preacher, "but what happens if you pull both strings?"

"I fall off my perch, you stupid fool!" screeched the parrot.


A carpet layer had just finished installing a carpet for a lady. He stepped out for a smoke, only to realize he'd lost his cigarettes. Later he discovers in the middle of the room a lump under the carpet.

A student reports for her university final exam which consists mainly of  true and false questions.

During the last few minutes, she is seen desperately throwing the coin, swearing and sweating. The moderator, alarmed, approaches her and asks what is happening.

"I finished the exam in a half hour," she replies. "Now I'm rechecking my answers."

9.75. The butcher, having a feeling of satisfaction, leaves.

Three days later, the butcher finds a bill from the lawyer: $100 due for a consultation.

A gorgeous young redhead goes into the doctor's office and said that her body hurts wherever she touched it. "Impossible!" says the doctor. "Show me."

The redhead took her finger, pushed on her left shoulder and screamed, then she pushed her elbow and screamed even more. She pushed her knee and screamed; likewise she pushed her ankle and screamed. Everywhere she touched made her scream.

The doctor said, "You're not really a redhead, are you? "Well, no" she said, "I'm actually a blonde." "I thought so," the doctor said. "Your finger is broken."

A ventriloquist sitting on the stage goes through his routine. The dummy he's holding tells one blonde joke after another ... "there was this blonde ..."

The audience laugh themselves to tears. Eventually a blonde woman has had enough. She stands up and shouts "Stop all these jokes. They are degrading and insulting to blondes everywhere. You should be ashamed!"

I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!"

The Pope stood by the limousine waiting to get in. His chauffeur opened the door for him.

“May I drive?” asked the Pope.

“I’m afraid I can’t allow it,” said the chauffeur, “I’m the only one insured to drive this vehicle.”

“Oh shoot …” replied the Pope, “I’ve always fancied driving a limousine … even when I was Cardinal here in the Vatican … I always liked this particular car … but never got to drive it …”

The chauffeur smiled and said nothing. The Pope continued … “If you let me drive, no one will ever know … and I’ll owe you one …”

The chauffeur weakened. “I hope I don’t live to regret it …” he said as he sat in the back seat and handed the keys to the Pontiff. The Pope jumped into the driver’s seat and set off.

Out in the countryside he increased his speed to well over 70 mph. Pretty soon he was followed by a police car with lights flashing and siren blaring.

The Pope stopped the car by the side of the road. The chauffeur crouched low in the back seat.

The policeman approached the car, looked at the driver and said …”Wait here …”

He then returned to his car and asked to speak to the chief of police urgently. Eventually, the operator put him on to the chief of police.

“Sir … I’ve just stopped a limousine speeding at over 80 mph …”

“So what?” said the chief, “you know what to do … book him …”

“Sir … the passenger is very important …”

“What does it matter?” replied the chief, “the car was speeding … just book him …”

“You don’t understand Sir … I mean very very important …”

“Who the Mayor?”

“No Sir … more important …”

“The Governor?”

“Even more important ….”

“Then who is in that **** car?” shouted an exasperated chief.

“It is God, Sir …” replied the policeman hesitantly.

“God …??? What makes you say that?”

“Because the Pope is his driver …”

An atheist was spending a quiet day fishing when suddenly his boat was attacked by the Loch Ness monster. In a second the monster tossed him and his boat high into the air. Then it opened its mouth to swallow both. As the man fell head over heels, he cried out, "Oh, dear God! Help me please!" At once, the ferocious attack scene froze in place, and as the atheist hung in mid-air, a booming voice from above said: "I thought you didn't believe in Me!"

"Come on God, give me a break!!" the man pleaded." Two minutes ago I didn't believe in the Loch Ness monster either!"

The curator sends a team to collect the mummy for thorough examination. A week later, the amazed curator called the archaeologist. "You were right about the mummy's age and cause of death. How in the world did you know it was heart failure?"
