I have picked out some jokes that I found humorous. Some are short, some are lengthy. All I think are enjoyable and worth a moment's time to read.


A chicken walks into the library and walks up to the librarian and says, "Book."

The librarian says, "You want a book?"


"Any book?"


So the librarian gives the chicken a novel and off it goes. But an hour later the chicken comes back and says, "Book-book."

The librarian says, "Now you want two books?"


"So she gives the chicken two more novels and it leaves but it comes back later.


"Three books?"


So the librarian gives the chicken three books, but she decides she'll follow the chicken and find out what's going on. The chicken goes down the alley, and out of town and towards the woods and into the woods and down to the river and down to the swamp and there is a bullfrog.

The chicken sets the books down by him and he looks at them and he says, "Reddit, Reddit, Reddit."

Teacher: Class, it's an interesting linguistic fact that in English, a double negative forms a positive. In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language in which a double positive can form a negative.

Sven and Ole went out duck hunting and they worked at it for a couple of hours. Finally Sven says, "I wonder why aren't we getting any duck, Ole?"

Ole,"I don't know. I wonder if we're throwing the dog high enough."

Sven, "So Ole, I see you got a sign up that says Boat For Sale. But you don't own a boat. All you got is your old John Deere tractor and your combine.

Ole, "Yup, and they're boat for sale."

Ole was fishing with Sven in a rented boat. They could not catch a thing. Ole said, "Let's go a bit furder down stream." So they did and they caught many many monstrous fish. Since they had their limit, they went home. On the way home Sven said, "I marked da spot right in da middle of da boat, Ole."

Ole, "So tell me how you know we'll get da same boat next time?"
