Make Me Laugh!

Humor is one of the quickest ways to overcome distance and uncertainty between new  acquaintances. The art of conversation is a learned technique, and those who struggle with "small talk" and "soft conversation" can benefit from "stocking the pantry" with favorite "canned" one-liners designed to break the ice and build trust.

Although not our original creations, these are a few of our favorite quips:

  • The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

  • If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?

  • So what if I can't spell 'armaggedon'? It's not like it's the end of the world...

  • A man was in court for stealing a bag. It took just 3 minutes to get sentenced... It was a briefcase.

  • Don't trust atoms, they make up everything.

  • I'm going to make a TV series about a plane hi-jacking. We just shot the pilot.

  • I'd like to defend a penguin in court just to say,  "Your Honor, my client is clearly not a flight risk."

  • Hummingbirds are just regular birds that don't know the words.

  • Did you hear about the cross-eyed teacher? He couldn't control his pupils.

  • My new favorite band is Dog Whistle... You won't have heard them

  • Did you hear about the lonely pyromaniac? He's still looking for the perfect match.

  •  What's amnesia?

  • I had a steak at this restaurant last night that mooed at me... I thought, "That's rare!"

  •  Got in a fight with a sea creature that I thought was my friend... Turned out, he was anemone.

Amanda, these are very funny!  I'll take a feeble crack at it by combining some real estate and politics.

Hillary Clinton would never view a red brick home at an open house in Iowa while campaigning,  because she is looking for a WHITE House.

Amanda, I had heard most of these, but not this one -- and it made me giggle! "If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?" HA! Loved it! Humor is a great way to break the ice!
