A Joke A Day

Recommended Posts

Since I got a calendar with a joke everyday for Christmas - one of those where you rip off a sheet per day, don't know what it's called in English - I thought I could post the jokes here every day.

Saturday and Sunday is combined and shown on one single sheet so for the weekend there is only one joke available, not two.

Let's go!

Joke of January 4, 2005:

Isaac was lying in his bed, seriously ill, and the family was gathered around his bedside.

"Wife," he whispered.

"I'm here, Isaac."

"Miriam," he sighed.

"I'm here, Papa."

"Jacob?"

"I'm here, too, Papa."

"Then who the hell is minding the shop?"

Joke of January 8/9, 2005:

A tourist saw an advertisement in front of a restaurant which claimed that any dish requested could be served. The man decided to test it. He entered and ordered an elephant on toast. The waiter took the order and went away into the kitchen. A few minutes later, he returned and said calmly, "We do apologize, but unfortunately we have run out of bread."

An actor was offered 5,000 pounds a week to work on a new film.

Joke of January 15/16, 2005:

John entered a store in Brooklyn and asked the shopkeeper, "What is the price of a herring?"

"Six cents each," answered Katz, the shopkeeper.

Just then the owner of the next store announced his merchandise loudly: "Ladies and gentlemen, cheap! Five cents a herring!"

"Do you hear that?" John asked, "Why do you charge more?"

"Because," answered Katz, "I wrap the herring in today's newspaper, whereas my neighbour uses papers that are a week old!"

Joke of January 18, 2005:

Noticing that just before the football game started the teams gathered together and prayed briefly, a fan, seated next to a priest, asked what he thought would happen if both teams prayed with equal faith and fervour.

"In that event," replied the minister, "I imagine the Lord would simply sit back and enjoy one fine game of football."

Joke of January 19, 2005:

Once there were three turtles. One day they decided to go on a picnic. When they got there, they realized that they had forgotten the soda. The youngest turtle said he would go home and get it if they wouldn't eat the sandwiches until he got back. A week went by, then a month, finally a year, when one of the turtles said, "Oh, come on, let's eat the sandwiches." Suddenly the little turtle popped up from behind a rock and said, "If you do, I won't go!"
