Best New Jokes: February 5, 2001



A teacher noticed that a little boy at the back of class was squirming
around, scratching his crotch and not paying attention. She went back tofind out what was going on.

He was quite embarrassed and whispered that he
had just recently been circumcised and he was quite itchy. The teacher told him to go down to the principal’s office.

He was to phone his mother and ask her what he should do about it. He did it and returned to his class.

Suddenly, there was a commotion at the back of the room. She went back to investigate only to find him sitting at his desk with his penis hanging out.

“I thought I told you to call your Mom.” she screamed.

“I did,” he said,”And she told me that if I could stick it out till noon, she’d come and pick me up from school.”


Dad walks into the market followed by his 10-year-old son. The kid is
spinning a quarter in the air and catching it between his teeth. As they walk through the market, someone bumps into the boy at just the wrong moment and the coin goes straight into his mouth and lodges in his throat. The boy immediately starts choking and going blue in the face, and Dad starts panicking, shouting and screaming for help.

A middle-aged, fairly unnoticeable man in a gray suit is sitting at a coffee bar in the market reading his newspaper and sipping a cup of coffee.

At the sound of the commotion, he looks up, puts his coffee cup down on the
saucer, neatly folds his newspaper, and places it on the counter. He gets upfrom his seat and makes his unhurried way across the market.

Reaching the boy (who is still standing, but only just) the man carefully takes hold of the kid’s balls and squeezes gently but firmly.

After a few seconds, the boy convulses violently and coughs up the quarter, which the man catches in his free hand.

Releasing the boy, the man hands the coin to the father and walks back to his seat in the coffee bar without saying a word.

As soon as he is sure that his son has suffered no lasting ill effects, the father rushes over to the man and starts effusively thanking him.

The man looks embarrassed and brushes off the father’s thanks. As he’s about to leave, the father asks one last question:

“I’ve never seen anybody do anything like that before -it was fantastic! What are you, a surgeon or something like that?”

“Oh, good heavens, no” the man replies “I work for the IRS.”

The old lady was standing at the railing of the cruise ship holding her new hat on tight so that it would not blow off in the wind.

A gentleman approached her and said: “Pardon me, madam. I do not intend to be forward, but did you know that your dress is blowing up in this high wind?”

“Yes, I know,” said the lady, “I need both hands to hold onto this hat.”

“But, madam, you must know that you are exposed!” said the gentleman in earnest.

The woman looked down, then back up at the man and replied, well anything you see down there is 85 years old. I just bought this hat yesterday!”

8 year old little Mary and her mother are walking through the mall together one day. “Mommy,” says the little Mary, “how old are you?”

“Darling, you should never ask a woman what her age is.”

“Why not?” demands the child.

“Well, that is something you will understand one day when you’re grown-up.”

“Mommy,” asks Mary again, “how much do you weigh?”

“Never mind,” answers the mother.

“Why can’t you tell me?”

“Because grown-ups never talk about how much they weigh. This is something you will learn and understand someday.”

“Mommy,” insists the child, “can you tell me why you and Daddy got

“Darling,” responds the mother in exasperation, “that’s something that’s still very painful for Mommy, and I really just can’t talk about it now.”

A few days later, Little Mary recounts this conversation to a friend at
school. The friend explains how to overcome these problems…

“All you have to do is get your mother’s driver’s license. It has all the information about any grown-up you want on it. You just read it like a report card and it’ll give you anything you need,”

So little Mary does as her friend recommended. That night she sneaks into
her mother’s room while her Mom was cooking dinner. She rummages through her purse and finds the drivers license. After examining it carefully she walks up to her mother and says, “I know how old you are! You are 35!”

The motheris very surprised. “And, I know how much you weigh. You weigh 136 pounds, right?” The mother is shocked.

“And, I know why you and Daddy got a divorce.”

The mother, dumb founded asked, “Why?”

“It’s because you got an F in sex!”


A blonde was driving home after a game, and got caught in a really bad hailstorm. Her car was covered with dents, so the next day she took it to a repair shop.

The shop owner saw that she was a blonde, so he decided to have
some fun. He told her just to go home and blow into the tail pipe really hard, and all the dents would pop out.

So, the blonde went home, got down on her hands and knees and started blowing into her tailpipe. Nothing happened.

She blew a little harder, and still nothing happened. Her roommate, another blonde, came home and said, “What are you doing?”

The first blonde told her how the repairman had instructed her to blow into the tailpipe in order to get all the dents to pop out.

Her blonde roommate rolled her eyes and said, “Uh, like hello! You need to roll up the windows
