Did you hear the one about… Tell a joke once in a while. One that makes you laugh out loud. Sometimes business can be stressful and overwhelming; even more so with this extended virus continuously throwing a wrench in our updated sales plans. Have a thought, or story, or joke available that puts a smile on your customer’s face to keep things in perspective. Here are another Baker’s Dozen of my favorites:
- The person who invented the ballet skirt was at a loss to come up with a name for it until they put two and two together.
- Did you hear about the man who got hit by the same bike every morning? It was a vicious cycle.
- I ran to the emergency room the minute I heard my uncle got run over by a steamroller. The doc said my uncle was behind curtain 5, curtain 6, and curtain 7.
- What do dentists call their x-rays? Tooth pics!
- I couldn’t believe the highway department called my dad a thief. But when I got home, the signs were all there.
- I keep telling myself I have got to start losing weight, but I feel like I have way too much on my plate right now.
- And the Lord said unto John, “Come forth and you will receive eternal life.” But John came fifth and won a toaster.
- My teachers told me I’d never amount to much since I procrastinate so much. I told them, “Just you wait!”
- My wife accused me the other day of being too immature. I told her to get out of my fort.
- Someone stole my mood ring yesterday. I still don’t know how I feel about that.
- Why did the nurse carry red crayons? In case she had to draw blood.
- I’m really nervous and really excited for the amateur autopsy club I just joined. Tuesday is open Mike night.
- I went to the breakfast joint and asked the waitress what the password was. She said, “You have to order first.” I ordered two eggs, two bacon strips, two wheat toast, and coffee, then asked for the password again. She said, “I told you: ‘youhavetoorderfirst’ one word, all lower case.”
- My grandpa used to sprinkle a tablespoon of gunpowder on his eggs every morning. Said it gave him energy through the day. When he died at the ripe old age of 96, he left behind a grieving wife, 6 children, 14 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren, and a 25-foot hole in the side of the crematorium.
