All day long I do nothing but think about women, from the moment I get up in the morning to the moment I fall asleep at night." She finishes her drink and leaves. A few minutes later a husband and wife, obviously tourists, walk in and sit down next to the cowboy. The husband says "Are you a real cowboy?"

  1. “‘G+hole’ is a registered trademark of Doctor Popular.”
    Wait… THE docpop who I adored when I was super into yoyoing? when did he become cool outside of that niche? I gotta catch up.

    Also, the funny jokes are funny

  2. Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk. Drummer jokes crack me up.
    Whats the difference between a drummer and a drum machine?
    You only have to punch the information into a drum machine once.

  3. My version of this joke:

    How many surrealists does it take to change a lightbulb?
    I don’t know, how many?
    Fish.
    …?
    Well, maybe surrealist humor isn’t your cup of fur.

    1. how many surrealists does it take to change the lightbulb?

      Two.

      One to hold the giraffe, and the other to fill the bathtub with brightly coloured
      machine tools.

  4. Some of these I’ve heard before… some of them are OK…

    But for me it’s Breck Witte’s lesbian joke FTW.

  5. Here’s an to fix the italicising of the rest of this page.

    Geez, those nerd lightbulb jokes (hardware-problem, Microsoft one) I read in the 90’s… Did I use to think Xeni was cool?

    This one can also be considered old since I read its millionth retweet:

    A web developer walked into a bar. But quickly left when he saw the table layout.

    1. Netsharc, most of them weren’t new on rec.humor either. But we’ve got a new medium here, so it’s retro (or would be, if we were actually doing this over on G+.)

      How many aikido masters does it take to change a lightbulb? Only one, but the light bulb has to attack first.

      Why did the [ethnic] musician play traditional [ethnic] music?
      For the money.

      [Insert all the banjo jokes here, s/banjo/{accordian, viola, trombone}/ ]

      Antinous: When you use the less-than sign, you invoke html.
      Ia, that’s scary – Cthulhu only shows up if you invoke him three times.

      One teenager said to another “Did you know Paul McCartney was in another band before Wings?” (This wasn’t the original joke, where he’d have said it because he was ignorant – it was because it _really_ annoyed his parents.)

      1. That’s not Cthulhu. Hastur is the one whose name which when you say it three times he shows up. Although that wasn’t in the original Lovecraft material. I’m not aware of anything before the Call of Cthulhu game that made the claim. Before that he was just known as “Hastur the Unspeakable” but it wasn’t explained why.

        And just to be safe I’ve only said it twice in this post…

  6. Suggested change in punchline of the News of the World joke: “.. but if you leave me a message, The News of the World will put it on tomorrow’s front page”

  7. ay, yo–a priest, a nun and a rabbi walk into a bar. the bartender says “what is this, a joke?”

  8. A man walked into a bar. He said, “Ouch!”

    Two men walk into a bar. You’d think the second one would have seen it.

    Q. How many swingers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
    A. Swingers don’t screw in light bulbs, they screw in hot tubs.

  9. I liked the screenwriter one. Reminded me of two others: How many actors does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Two. One to screw it in and one to say, “That was great, but I’d have done it like this…” and How many directors does it take to screw in a lightbulb? I don’t know, what do YOU think?

  10. I guess I’m surprised how many people are ok with tying their real name to jokes about child rape and murder.

  11. I went to my doctor the other day and told him “Doc, you have to help me. I can’t stop singing ‘The Green, Green Grass of Home’.” The doctor said, “Sounds like you have Tom Jones syndrome.”
    “Tom Jones syndrome?” I replied, “Is it common?”
    To which the doctor said, “It’s not unusual.”

  12. Q: How many Management Consultants does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: It’s only 1 but the light bulb has to really want to change

  13. how many Surrealists does it take to change a light bulb?
    two: one to hold the bulb and the other to fill the bathtub with brightly colored machine tools.

  14. – Do you know the difference between Russia in the 60s and the USA today?

    Well, one is a police state where the secret service could eavesdrop on you, jail you in secret prisons and deny you all rights, be it human or procedural, so that you just disappeared and never emerged again except for a show trial – and the other one never had a black leader.

  15. Why does a chicken coop have two doors?
    Because if it had four doors it would be a chicken sedan.

  16. Q: What’s the difference between a drummer and a large Hawaiian pizza?

    A: A large pizza will feed a family of four.

    Also, @Robert – that’s awesome! I must keep that one on hand for next time the knock knock jokes come out.

    1. More drummer jokes!

      Q: How do you get a drummer off your front porch?
      A: Pay him for the pizza.

      Q: What do you call someone who hangs out with musicians?
      A: The drummer.

  17. knock knock
    who’s there?
    the interupting cow.
    the interupting cow who?

    wait, let me do that over.

  18. A proton walks into a bar and says, “I’ve lost an electron, has anyone seen it?”

    The bartender asks, “Are you sure?”

    The proton says, “I’m positive!”

  19. Q: How many therapists does it take to change a light bulb? A: One but the light bulb has to want to change.

    [zuludaddy gets the shepherd’s crook and is yanked off the stage…]

  22. A man is walking down the street one day and hears a group chanting “…ten, ten, ten, ten, ten…” in the distance. As he continues he passes an old abandoned building along the side of the road and the chanting gets louder, “…TEN, TEN, TEN, TEN, TEN…”. Curious to know what’s going on, he goes up to the front of the building and peeks into a hole drilled into a boarded up window. All of a sudden a stick comes through the hole and pokes him in the eye. He shrieks and jumps back, and as he stands there bewildered and in pain the chanting resumes, “…eleven, eleven, eleven, eleven, eleven…”

  23. Helium walks into a bar, the bartender says, “We don’t serve nobel gases.”

    One’s a barroom and the other’s a BARROOOMMMM!

    Why do engineers confuse Halloween and Christmas?
    Because Oct 31 = Dec 25
    (If you don’t get it, you never studied base conversions)

  30. Here’s another cannibal joke:

    So these two cannibals are eating a clown, and one of them turns to the other and says “does this guy taste funny to you?”

  31. – Shucks, I forgot to take my medicine this morning.
    – Is it for your face?
    – No, it’s for my low self-esteem.
    – You’re not taking anything for your face?

  39. One of my favorites:

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

  40. The drummer/drool joke reminded me of my favorite musician joke (I know a lot of Berklee grads and dropouts):

    A missionary goes off to Africa, and ends up living in a very remote village deep in the jungle. He notices, continually, off in the distance, the sound of drums, and asks the tribal leader “what are those drums?” and gets the reply “ohhhh. . . drums stop, very bad!” and nothing more. Confused, he asks several other villagers and always gets the same response. Finally he says “OK, I understand, when the drums stop it will be bad, but why?” and the villager replies “drums stop. . . BASS SOLO!”

    And my favorite drummer joke:

    Q: What do you call a drummer without a girlfriend?

    A: homeless.

  41. For the Linux geeks…

    A vacationing Penguin is driving through Arizona
    when he notices that the oil-pressure light is on.
    He gets out to look and sees oil dripping out of the
    motor. So, he drives to the nearest town and stops at the
    first gas station.

    After dropping the car off, the Penguin goes for a
    walk around town. He sees an ice cream shop and,
    being in Arizona, decides that something cold would really
    hit the spot. So, he gets a big bowl of vanilla ice cream and
    sits down to eat.

    Having no hands, he makes a real mess trying to eat
    with his little flippers. After finishing his ice cream, he goes
    back to the gas station and asks the mechanic if he’s found
    the problem. The mechanic looks up and says, “It looks like
    you blew a seal.”

    No, no,” the Penguin replies, “I swear it’s only ice cream.”
