A few days ago I picked up a complimentary magazine that had been sent to my office and while flipping through it, I stopped at a page with jokes. While they were extremely goofy, they were clean and brought a smile to my face. "A good quick 'clown' moment," I thought. What was ironic, however, was that a couple hours later while on a phone call with someone, I shared one of the jokes. Their response was quite telling... "I needed that," they said.
Work environments today are more intense than ever. Add the rush of the holidays and questions about the new year, and it's a mixture to feel overwhelmed. A moment to laugh or just have cause to smile can give a much needed break. In that hope, I provide the following jokes:
A little boy wasn't getting good marks in school. One day he tapped his teacher on the shoulder and said, "I don't want to scare you, but my dad says that if I don't get better grades, somebody is going to get a spanking."
Walking down the street, a man passes a house and notices a child trying to reach the doorbell. No matter how much the little guy stretched, he couldn't make it. "Let me get that for you," the man called out as he stepped on the porch and rings the bell.
"Thanks, mister," says the kid. "Now let's run."
A guy calls 911 and screams, "You gotta send help! My wife's going into labor." The dispatcher replies, "Calm down. Is this her first child?" He replies, "No! this is her husband."
May your day be filled with many smiles.
