Jokes the average person wouldn't get...

There are 10 kinds of people in this world. Those who understand binary and those who don’t.

A Rational Expectations Economist and his friend are walking down the street when the friend points and says, 'Hey there’s a ten dollar bill on the ground." The Rational Expectations Economist replied, “No there isn’t.”

I made one the other day. Me and my lewd friends we chitchatting and someone complained about their constant itching on some bodily part. Then after awhile the chat wandered back to the normal risque subjects.

I quipped “now the conversation is REALLY getting prurient”

I got duly thwapped after I explained the etymology.

Thanks, Lightning!

And I remembered one more:


Richard Pryor jokes would probably not be recognized in Norway.

Two matrons are walking out of a Broadway matinee. A panhandler approaches them, hand outstretched.

Panhandler: “Spare any change?”

Matron: “‘Neither a borrower nor a lender be’: William Shakespeare.”

Panhandler: “‘F**k you’: David Mamet.”

Joke for those who know automotive trivia:

Tired of driving slow all the time, the snail takes his 1982 Buick Skylark into a hot rodder’s shop and asks if they can do anything to make it a little quicker. The shop owner chuckles, as he’s used to working on Mustangs and Corvettes, but he agrees to see what he can do. After making every possible go-fast modification to the little car, he calls up the snail and tells him his Buick is ready to race. The snail picks up the car, and as the mechanics watch, he pulls out of the garage, tires squealing, and zooms off down the street.

“Wow,” says one mechanic. “Look at that X-car go!”

Explanation: GM uses one-letter body codes for its basic styles of cars. For example, the Cavalier and Sunfire are known as “J-cars” and the Grand Am and Malibu are “N-cars”. The 1980-85 Skylark, Phoenix, Omega and Citation were the “X-cars”. Of course, the joke is a play on the word “escargot”. I hope you at least figured that out.

Saw this one on “The Family Guy” a couple years ago, I almost wet myself I was laughing so hard:

The father and one of the kids are sitting aroud the house and phone starts ringing. The little kid gets all excited and starts jumping around screaming:
“I hope it’s mom, I hope it’s mom!”

The dad gets excited and starts jumping around screaming:
“I hope it’s Sommerset, I hope it’s Sommerset!”

It’s amazed me how few people get this one. It’s (rather un-PC), so forgive that… but…
Three expectant mothers are sitting in an obstetricians’ office, knitting away and waiting to be called in. One mother holds up the booties she’s knitting and says “MY baby boy is going to be a quarterback, so I’m making him some little athletic booties, and I’m taking lots of extra iron supplements to make sure he grows up big and strong.”

The second holds up the scarf she’s knitting and says “Well, MY little girl is going to be a figure skater, so she’ll need a scarf, and I’m taking plenty of calcium to make sure she has strong bones and a winning smile.” They both look at the third woman, and one asks “What are you taking, and what are you knitting?”

“Thalidomide, and I’m knitting a sweater, but I just can’t get these arms right.”
