Best New Jokes: October 7, 2007


The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon Ill hear old winters song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall


Four retired guys are walking down a street in Milwaukee.
Then they turn a corner and see a sign that says “Old Timer’s Bar — ALL DRINKS 10 CENTS!”

They look at each other, then go in. The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room, “Come on in and let me pour one for you, what’ll it be, Gentlemen?”

There seems to be a fully stocked bar, so the men all ask for a martini.

In short order, the bartender serves up 4 iced martinis — and says, “That’ll be 10 cents each, please.”

They can’t believe their good luck. They pay the 40 cents, finish
their martinis, and order another round. Again, four excellent martinis are produced with the bartender again saying, “That’s 40 more cents, please.”

They pay the 40 cents, but their curiosity is more than they can stand.

They’ve each had two martinis and so far they’ve spent less than a dollar.

Finally one of the men couldn’t stand it any longer and asks the bartender, “How can you afford to serve martinis as good as these for a dime a piece?”

“Here’s my story. I’m a retired tailor from Brooklyn, and I always wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the lottery for $25 million and decided to open this place. Every drink costs a dime. Wine, liquor, beer, all the same.”

“Wow. That’s quite a story!” says one of the men. The four of them
sipped at their martinis and couldn’t help but notice three other guys at the end of the bar who didn’t have a drink in front of them, and hadn’t ordered anything the whole time they were there.

One man gestures at the three at the end of the bar without drinks and asks the bartender, “What’s with them?”

The bartender says, “They’re seniors from Florida, they’re waiting for happy hour!”

What do you get if you divide the circumference

Mensa is an organization for people with an IQ of 140 or higher.

A few years ago, there was a Mensa convention in San Francisco, and several members lunched at a local cafe.

While dining, they discovered that their salt shaker contained pepper and their pepper shaker was full of salt.

How could they swap the contents of the bottles without spilling, and using only the implements at hand? Clearly this was a job for Mensa!

The group debated and presented ideas, and finally came up with a brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw, and an empty saucer. They called the waitress over to dazzle her with their solution.

“Ma’am,” they said, “we couldn’t help but notice that the pepper shaker contains salt and the salt shaker…”

“Oh,” the waitress interrupted. “Sorry about that.” She unscrewed the caps of both bottles and switched them.

What do you call a stolen yam?

Joe checked into a hotel on a business trip and was
a bit lonely so he thought he’d get one of those girls advertised in the phone books under “Escorts and Massages”.

He opened the phone book to an ad for a girl calling herself “Erotica,” a lovely girl, bending over in the photo. She had all the right curves in all the right places, beautiful long wavy hair, long graceful legs all the way up.

So Joe picks up his room phone and gives her a call.

“Hello?” a woman says. Wow, she sounded sexy…….

“Hi, I hear you give a great massage and I’d like you to come to my room and give me one. No, wait, I should be straight with you. I’m in town all alone and what I really want is sex. I want it hard, I want it hot, and I want it now. I’m talking kinky the whole night long. You name it, we’ll do it. Bring implements, toys, everything you’ve got in your bag of tricks.. Now,how does that sound?”

The woman answers, “That sounds fantastic; but for an outside line, Sir, you need to press 9.”

Jim was sitting quietly reading his paper when his wife walked up behind him and whacked him on the head with a magazine.

“What was that for?” he asked.

“That was for that piece of paper in your pants pocket with the name Betty Lou written on it,” she replied.

“Two weeks ago when I went to the races, Betty Lou was the name of one of the horses I bet on,” he explained.

“Oh honey, I’m sorry,” she said.  “I should have known there was a good explanation.”

Three days later Jim as watching a ball game on TV when she walked up and hit him in the head again, this time with the iron skillet, which knocked him out cold.

When he came to, he asked, “What in the world was that for?”

She replied ……… “Your horse just called!”

Like a prune, you are not getting any better looking,
but you are getting sweeter.

A bear was chasing a bunny rabbit, when it stumbled over a bottle. A genie popped out of the opened bottle and said, “You are the first animals that I have seen in 10,000 years. I’m going to give each of you three wishes.”
The bear went first “I wish that all the bears in this forest were girls, except me.”

The bunny went second “I wish I had a helmet.”
The bear went again “I wish that all the bears, in this State, were girls,except me.”

The bunny asked for a motorcycle.
The bear wished that all the bears in the world were girls, except him.
The bunny’s final wish was “I wish this bear was gay,” and then rode away.

and there is no woman to hear him,
is he still wrong?
