The Jokes section.

Post by Marigold » Sat Apr 07, 2018 5:59 pm

Time we had a new Jokes section. Here's one for starters;

Roman’s garage burned down and his wife Tessa called the insurance company.

She spoke to the insurance officer and said, “We had that garage insured for sixty thousand, and I want my money.”

The officer answered, “Hold on there, just a minute. Insurance doesn’t work quite like that. An independent adjuster will assess the value of what was insured, and then we’ll provide you with a new garage of similar worth.”

There was a long quiet pause, and then Tessa answered, “If that’s how it works, then I want to cancel the life insurance policy on my husband.”

After a long time, Jesse visits his old aunt . As he sits on the sofa, he notices a large bowl of peanuts on the coffee table.

“Mind if I have a few?” Jesse asks.

“No, not at all, I'll be glad if you finish them up” the old woman replied.

They talked about health of the old woman for half an hour and, as Jesse stands to leave, he realizes that instead of eating just a few peanuts, he's emptied most of the bowl.

“I’m really sorry for eating all your peanuts auntie. I really just meant to eat a few.”

“Oh, that’s all right,” his aunt says. “Ever since I lost my teeth, all I can do is suck the chocolate off them.”

Fearing that he would be late for an important business meeting in London, a motorist was beginning to panic because he couldn’t find a parking space. Street after street was full, and growing ever more desperate, he decided to seek help from the Almighty.

Looking up to Heaven, he said: “Lord, please help me out here. If you find me a parking space, I’ll give up drink and women and go to Mass every Sunday.”

Then as he turned the corner, miraculously a parking space appeared.

He looked skyward again and said: “Never mind, I found one.”

I hate to ask but do you mean that you don't have a chiropodist or that you don't have any feet?

I have really weird feet but have never had the courage to undertake the 6 weeks in plaster it would take, per foot, (I do have two of them) for refurbishment.

Don't blame you.
Jewish man sits on a park bench eating his Passover meal
A blind man comes and sits next to him, feeling neighbourly, the Jewish man passes him a Matzo
The blind man sits there running his fingers over the Matzo and finally says " who wrote this crap?"
