23. Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during a root – canal?

24. There was the person who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least

one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.




Man goes to a pet shop and buys a hamster.

Next day the guy rings up the pet shop.


[ring ring] “The hamster you sold me has died.”

“I’m terribly sorry to hear that. Look, I’ll tell you what to do. Put a pan half full of water on the stove and call me when it’s boiling.”


[ring ring] “OK. It’s boiling.”

“Add two pounds of sugar and ring me when it’s dissolved.”


[ring ring] “The sugar’s dissolved.”

“OK. Put the hamster in and keep it simmering. Call me when it’s fallen apart.”


[ring ring] “OK it’s fallen apart.”

“Now chuck it out the window because it’s no good to anyone.”


Time passes……..


[ring ring] “You’re not going to believe this. There’s a flower-bed full of daffodils under the window.”


“You bet I don’t believe it. You should get tulips from hamster jam.”




A bloke starts his new job at the zoo and is given three tasks. The first is to clear the exotic fish pool of weeds. He starts on this when suddenly a huge fish leaps out and bites him. He is not going to let a fish have a go so he beats the offending fish to death with a spade. Realising that his boss is not going to be best pleased, he tries to find a way to hide the dead fish. He hits on the brilliant idea of giving the fish to the lions as lions will eat anything. So he

throws the fish into the lion’s cage.


He then moves on to his second job, which is to clear out the monkey house. He goes in and a couple of chimps starts throwing coconuts at him. Unamused he swipes at the chimps with his spade, killing them instantly. He’s really worried now, so what does he do? He feeds the chimps to the lions, because lions eat anything. He hurls them into the lion’s cage.


Anyway, he moves on to his last job, which is to collect honey from South American bees. He starts on this and quickly gets attacked by the bees. Alarmed, he grabs his spade and smashes the bees as hard as he can,squashing them to death. By this point he is not too worried about the death of bees as he knows what to do by now. He throws them into the lion’s cage, because lions eat anything.


Later that day a new lion arrives at the zoo. It wanders up to another lion and says “What’s the food like in here?” The other lion says:. . . . . .Wait for it . . .

“Absolutely brilliant, today we had fish, chimps and mushy bees”

And finally:


“Can Cold Water Clean Dishes?


This is for all the germ conscious folks that worry about

using cold water to clean.


John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very

secluded, rural area of West Virginia .


After spending a great evening chatting the night away,

John’s grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast.


However, John noticed a film-like substance on his plate,

and questioned his grandfather asking, “Are these plates clean?”


His grandfather replied, “They’re as clean as cold water

can get them. Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!”


For lunch the old man made hamburgers.


Again, John was concerned about the plates as his appeared

to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried

egg and asked, “Are you sure these plates are clean?”


Without looking up the old man said, “I told you before, Sonny,

those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now

don’t you fret; I don’t want to hear another word about it!”


Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town

and as he was leaving, his grandfather’s dog started to growl,

and wouldn’t let him pass.


John yelled and said, “Grandfather, your dog won’t let me get

to my car”.


Without diverting his attention from the football game he

was watching on TV, the old man shouted. “COLDWATER, GO LAY DOWN!!!!”




Well hope it worked. Hope you had a chuckle at some of these!
