New jokes will be added every other week. Laughter really is the best medicine:


When two men are talking to each other, they are
talking about themselves.
When two women are talking to each other, they are
talking about a third one!

Every man wants a wife who is beautiful, understanding, economical, and a good cook. But the law allows only one wife.

It works like magic …

A man approached a very beautiful woman in a large supermarket and asked, “Can you talk to me for a couple of minutes?”
“Why?” she asks.
“Because I have lost my wife here in the supermarket and every time I talk to a beautiful woman, my wife appears out of nowhere.

A nice exchange …
A husband was enjoying his morning paper when his bored wife came up to him and said, “I wish I were a newspaper so that you could hold me in your arms everyday.”
The husband replied, “Yes Dear, I too wish you were, so I could have a new one everyday!”

A package deal!

Blind date woes

College student: How was your blind date?
Roommate: Terrible! He showed up in his 1932 Rolls Royce.
College student: Wow! That’s a very expensive car. What’s so bad about that?
Roommate: He was the original owner!!

Judge: You admit having broken into the same dress shop four times. What did you steal?
Accused: A dress for my wife, Your Honour, but she made me change it three times.

Doctor: (To his friend) You see that woman sitting over there? I love her very much.
Friend: Why don’t you marry her?
Doctor: I can’t afford to. She is my best patient.

A woman complained to her marriage counsellor about her husband’s selfishness.
“When he won a trip for two to Hawaii, he went twice.”

A doctor sent a bill to his patient. Underneath the bill, he wrote: “This bill is now one-year-old.”
Back came the reply: “Happy birthday!”

A toast in the right direction …

A woman at a party walked up to a man and told him,
“If you were my husband I would poison your drink.”
The man replied, “If you were my wife I would drink it!”

Man: If I could see you naked, I’d die happy.
Woman: If I saw you naked, I’d probably die laughing.

Husband: Honey, where would you like to go for our anniversary?
Wife: Somewhere I haven’t been in a long time!
Husband: Okay, how about the kitchen!

2 rings – wedding-ring & suffer-ring

An elderly woman decided to have her portrait painted. She told the artist, “Paint me with diamond earrings, diamond necklace, emerald bracelets, ruby brooch and gold Rolex.”
The confused artist said, “But you’re not wearing any of those things.”
“I know,” she said, “but, if I die before my husband, I’m sure my husband will remarry. I want his new wife to go crazy looking for the jewellery!”

Fatal attraction

Desperate boyfriend: Sir, your daughter says she loves me, and she can’t live without me, and she wants to marry me.
Parent: And you’re asking my permission to marry her?
Desperate boyfriend: No, I’m asking you to make her leave me alone!

The new Night golf-clubs …
Wife: What’s your excuse for coming home at this time of the night?
Husband: Golfing with friends, my dear.
Wife: What? At 2am?!
Husband: Yes, we used night clubs!

She put on a mudpack and looked great for two days.
Then the mud fell off!

Bank accounts are like toothpaste: Easy to take out but hard to put back. (Robert Ackerstrom)

Wife: You delivered an excellent speech.
Husband: Thanks, dear, but the audience was full of fools and idiots.
Wife: Is that why you addressed them as your brothers and sisters?

“Was it a big wedding?”
“Oh, yes, it was a grand wedding. The crowd was so huge that I stood twice in the queue to kiss the bride and nobody noticed.”
