Of course, the question is whether we are supposed to laugh at the work we are doing in a triumphant “Ha!” sort of way or get a good “he, he, he” laugh in while we happen to be at work.
The Daily Cupcake is going with latter. And in the spirit of laughing while at work, here are a few jokes to help you get your laugh on (compliments of tallrite.com):
A couple of New Jersey hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: “My friend is dead! What can I do?”
The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: “Just take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.” There is a silence, then a shot is heard.
The guy’s voice comes back on the line. He says: “OK, now what?“
Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson go on a camping trip. After a good dinner and a bottle of wine, they retire for the night, and go to sleep.
Some hours later, Holmes wakes up and nudges his faithful friend. “Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.”
“I see millions and millions of stars, Holmes” replies Watson.
“And what do you deduce from that?”
Watson ponders for a minute. “Well,
| Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.|
| Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo.|
| Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three.|
| Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.|
| Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful, and that we are a small and insignificant part of the universe.|
But what does it tell you, Holmes?”
Holmes is silent for a moment.
“Watson, you idiot!” he says. “Someone has stolen our tent!”
A man and a friend are playing golf one day at their local golf course. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer.
His friend says: “Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man.”
The man then replies: “Yeah, well we were married 35 years.”
A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says: “That’s the ugliest baby that I’ve ever seen. Ugh!” The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her: “The driver just insulted me!”
The man says: “You go right up there and tell him off – go ahead, I’ll hold your monkey for you.”
A turtle was walking down an alley in New York when he was mugged by a gang of snails. A police detective came to investigate and asked the turtle if he could explain what happened.
What do you call a monkey in a minefield ?
Which week of the day do fish hate?
I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather.
Not screaming in terror like his passengers.
Happy Laugh At Work Week! XOXO, TDC
