National Tell a Joke Day

16 Aug

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Today, August 16th, is National Tell a Joke Day.  YAY!  Today should be filled with chuckles and laughs all around.  Participate in this laughable day and tell some jokes.  Do it in person, pass it along in a few emails or blog about it.  The more jokes you tell today, the more fun today will be.  Start the laughter and keep it flowing.

In honor of this day, Bacon has decided to tell a few jokes that he has heard.  Get ready to laugh friends.

Joke 1 –

One of my neighbors owns several cats.  On a recent visit, she introduced them to me.  “That’s Astrophe, that’s Erpillar, that’s Aract and that’s Alogue.”

“Where on earth did you get such unusual names?” I asked

“Oh, those are their last names,” she explained.  “Their first names are Cat.”

Joke 2 –

Why are sharks mostly salt water creatures?

    –  Because pepper would make them sneeze.


Joke 3 –

Why do seagulls fly over the sea?

    –  Because if they flew over the bay they’d be bagels.

Joke 4 –

What do you get when you cross a flower and a dog?

    – A Collieflower (cauliflower) – snorts

    I don’t know many jokes in English, but one stuck
    Why do Germans call the TV a medium?
    Because it is neither rare nor well done.

    Many years ago as a student I took a summer job working in my local greengrocers shop. Towards the end of a busy day, a hatchet-faced lady came in and after looking around, she looked down her nose and said “I’d like a savoy cabbage please.”. I replied, ”I’’m sorry madam but we’’ve run out of cabbage today, would you like a cauliflower?” The lady huffed and puffed and said “But I want a savoy cabbage”. I tried to sound sympathetic and replied, “I am sorry, its been a very busy day and we have no cabbage, would you like to try some broccoli”? Once again the lady huffed and puffed and repeated now in a very cross tone that suggested the shortage was my fault, “I said I wanted a savoy cabbage”. “I am sorry madam” I responded, again trying to be helpful, “what about some spinach or chard ?” Now the lady became very angry and almost spat out the words, slowly and meanly…”I told you I wanted a savoy S.A.V.O.Y cabbage you idiot”. I looked at her carefully, “Madam, I told you we have no C.A.B.B.A.F.G.E cabbage!”
    She glared at me. You idiot, there’s no F in cabbage!
    I replied very slowly, “Madam, that’s what I’’ve been trying to tell you for the past five minutes!”
