All out of jokes
July 15, 2016 10:24 AM   Subscribe

I need new jokes. Lots and lots of jokes.

I find myself in the position of needing lots of jokes. I've probably read every single past question looking for jokes, and a lot of the same ones tend to come up again and again. I now need to refresh my jokes database. Please give me your funny jokes.

Rules: mild swearing and sex stuff is okay, but nothing extreme. No sexist, racist or any kind of -ist jokes. Shouldn't be excessively long (i.e. no shaggy dog stories, much as I love them)

I will pretty much take ANY kind of joke, but bonus for the following:

Dad jokes

A ______ walked into a bar jokes

Jokes that require specialized knowledge (e.g. - A programmer's wife tells him: "Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen." The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.)

Anti-jokes (e.g. - What did one lawyer say to the other lawyer? "We are both lawyers.")

Queen Elizabeth was visiting sick children in a Scottish hospital, and after performing her planned duties, she wandered off to other parts of the hospital. Walking into an unidentified ward, she went up to a patient in bed and asked him how he was doing. He replied:

"O, my luve is like a red, red rose,
That's newly sprung in June.
O, my luve is like the melodie,
That's sweetly played in tune....."

Finding the response somewhat inappropriate she wished him good day and moved down the ward to a room where another man was sitting quietly. In response to her inquiry, he began singing:

"Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to min' ?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o' lang syne ?"

Somewhat baffled by this sequence of events she found a third room, where her greeting was met with:

"Wee, sleekit, cowrin', tim'rous beastie,
O, what a panic's in thy breastie ...."

She gave up, and left the ward. On her way out, she encountered the head nurse. "Is this the psychiatric ward?" she asked.

"No, ma'am," the nurse replied. "It's......the Burns unit."

A little trivia! Mahatma Gandhi as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him frail, and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath.

This made him a super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

Two vintage Catholic jokes:

Two priests were having a hard time praying for long periods of time without a smoke break. After talking about it, they both decided to ask their superiors for permission to smoke.

The next day the priests met to compare notes. One, who was a Franciscan, looked pretty downcast. "I asked my superior if I could smoke while I pray, and he really chewed me out."

His friend, a Jesuit, just shook his head. "I asked my superior if I could pray while I smoked, and he said of course!"

---

A woman went to her parish priest to ask about vocations for her very devout son.

The priest got out some brochures for her. "It's a lot of work, but it's very rewarding! A parish priest like me studies for eight years. A Franciscan studies for 10 years. Now, a Jesuit—a Jesuit studies for 12 whole years."

The woman thought about it for a moment and then shook the priest's hand. "Sign him up for the last one, Father. He's a little slow."

Long ago lived a seaman named Captain Bravo. He was the bravest of fighters and showed no fear in facing his enemies. One day, while sailing the seven seas, a lookout spotted a pirate ship and the crew became frantic. Captain Bravo quieted the crew and then gave the order, "Bring me my red shirt."

The First Mate quickly retrieved the captain’s red shirt and while wearing the bright frock he led his crew into battle and defeated the pirates.

Later that week, the lookout again spotted not one, but two pirate ships. The captain again requested his red shirt and once again vanquished the pirates.

That evening, the officers discussed the day’s triumphs and one of them asked the captain, "Sir, why do you call for your red shirt before a fight? Do you believe it brings you luck in battle?"

The captain replied, "No, if I am wounded in the attack, the shirt will not show my blood, and thus, the men will not be demoralized." The men sat in silence and marveled at such courage.

One morning, the lookout spotted not one, not two, but TEN pirate ships approaching. The rank and file all gasped with fear, but then looked to their captain for guidance. Captain Bravo displayed no emotion, and in a calm voice said to the first mate, "Get me my brown pants."

A horse walks into a bar.

The bartender, who has noticed the horse at many of the local bars lately, asks the horse: "horse, are you an alcoholic?"

To this, the horse replies: "I don't think I am," and *POOF!* the horse disappears.

This is the point in time when all the philosophy students reading this begin to giggle, as they are familiar with the philosophical proposition: 'cogito ergo sum,' or 'I think, therefore, I am.'

But explaining that concept to everyone beforehand would be putting Descartes before the horse.
