I volunteered to take the role of Jester for next weeks Toastmasters meeting so I'm using this post to test out a few jokes on you.
Some jokes make you think and some are mindless. I’m going to start you out with one I had to explain to my wife.
Was your friend shocked over his mother-in-laws death?
Shocked! He was electrocuted
Here are a couple of mindless ones.
Was daddy a bashful man, Mommy?
Well if he wasn’t you would be 6 years older.
Women are the salt of the earth, that’s why they drive men to drink.
Good advice when going to see the dentist or anesthesiologist.
While reclined in the dentists chair a patient got his billfold out. You don’t have to pay me now said the dentist. Pay you! I’m counting my money before you put me under!
This joke was made for our club and our debate about lecterns and podiums.
My uncle made a speech from a platform and the platform gave way underneath him.
Oh my gosh! Did he get hurt?
No. Luckily the rope around his neck broke the fall.
Here is one for the season.
A smart girl is one who knows she can get more from Santa if she leaves her legs in the stockings.
I'm grateful for humor. Often an attitude for gratitude begins with humor. Whether an old joke like the ones above bring us out of the doldrums or a comedy like the The Adams Family play (pictured above with my daughter as one of the stars) humor can get us on the fast track to gratitude and praise.
Another thank you to Debe Maxwell, CRS and this months challenge to post a NOVEMBER 2019 THANKSGIVING GRATITUDE CHALLENGE.
