"Some people, when confronted with a problem, think 'I know, I'll use %s' Now they have %d problems." How many variations on this joke do you know?

I heard something like this. Abraham Lincoln said he wanted to paint the bathroom green and his wife wanted to paint it yellow "so we compromised and painted it yellow". Did anything like this ever happen? Who? Where? When? I have a friend who would like to use this in a wedding speech. My google fu fails me.

Looking for insults and jokes for my husbands 40th birthday party. It is a roast. He is a metrosexual, known for wearing pink. He plays golf and is known to get a little angry if he doesn't play well. He also loves poker and again gets angry if he loses. He thinks he has a big head, not conceited, but a physically big head. He comes across as arrogant but he really isn't if you get to know him. Jokes need to be relatively clean ie pg-13. Thanks [more inside]

He's got so many qualities I like...except for one. And it might be a dealbreaker. Am I being ridiculous? Wasn't there a Seinfeld episode about this? [more inside]

Does anyone know any dirty jokes that are related to the weather? Bonus points if the punchline, if said alone, indicates that it's a weather-related dirty joke. Actually, if you have a punchline that would indicate that, but no actual joke, that would be fine too.

Jokes. We all know one, maybe even two or three, and there's a good chance they're slightly or completely off-color. But let's say you need to entertain a room of five- to eight-year-olds, and they're expecting a non-stop barrage of hilarity. Anyone have any favorite kids' jokes they'd like to share?

I was surprised to find an option in the McAfee anti-virus enterprise management software, that "jokes" are a category that they block (screenshot
). What sort of jokes? Are any of these jokes awesome and/or funny? [more inside]

I'm looking for stories about telling jokes until they are no longer funny. How do people who write comedy tell if the jokes they are writing are still funny after repeating them so many times? I'm interested in hearing more about the short half-life of the joke, and the ways a joke can function after it has lost it's ha-ha-ha. [more inside]

For Halloweeen I'm going to be Valentine's Day and pass out homemade Valentines to people. I need a lot of repurposed pick-up lines and dirty jokes and terrible puns for the cards. Think "I CHOO-CHOO-CHOOSE YOU!" for drunken adults. [more inside]

I'm doing a presentation about conquering fear (of public speaking). Do you know any good jokes on the general subject of fear? Particularly on how fears can paralyze us, or how irrational fears can be?

I have some decorate-your-own Hello Kitty valentines. I want to write funny things on them, but I am, sadly, not a very funny person. Can you think of any jokes, quips, one-liners, etc., I can put on these cards for my (platonic) friends? Hello Kitty themed is a plus, but not totally necessary. (THANK YOU!)

What's the original joke that has the punchline "what, and give up show business?"
Google doesn't help, since it's such a common reference, most links are using the line assuming you know the joke.

I recently heard a joke on the show 30 Rock: "I love Foxy Boxing. It combines my two favorite things: boxing and referees!". I think I've heard this joke before. I feel like it was on Futurama. Is this my imagination?

If you saw two guys named Hambone and Flippy, which one would you think liked dolphins the most? I'd say Flippy, wouldn't you? You'd be wrong, though. It's Hambone.
I love the writings of Jack Handey
. His Deep Thoughts
(beware sound!) and his articles in the New Yorker.
I would love to hear recommendations of similarly funny writings.
