    Lots more new jokes here please! Here’s a one-liner to start you off:

    Like giving up eating pancakes for a whole year after Shrove Tuesday.

    Do Americanisms lose something when you use them in the UK? Well, that’s the £628,962.89 question.

    I answered the phone and all I could hear was somebody sneezing.

    It must have been one of those cold callers.


    A truck driver was driving along on a country road. A sign came up that read ” Low Bridge Ahead.”
    Before he realised it, the bridge was directly ahead and he got stuck under it.
    Cars were backed up for miles. Finally, a police car arrived.
    The policeman got out of his car and walked to the truck’s cab and said to the driver, “Got stuck, hey?”
    The truck driver said, “No, I was delivering this bridge and ran out of diesel!”


    As a child, I was a big fan of nonsense jokes. This one could have me in tears, rolling on the floor with laughter, although most other people just can’t figure out why I found it so funny:

    Q- What’s the difference between a duck?
    A- One of its legs is both the same!

    I’m giggling even as I type. As my dear old Gran used to say, there are wiser trying to get out!

    I asked the doctor how my wife was after her operation.
    He said, “I’m sorry to say she’s critical.”
    I replied, “Oh, you get used to that.”

    I decided to give it a go and stick my neck out.

    I got talking to a woman in a pub last night.
    “How come you’re only drinking orange juice?” I asked.
    “I’m pregnant,” she replied.
    “Ah, I thought you were because your belly is sticking right out,” I smiled. “But I didn’t want to ask in case you were just fat! How far gone are you?”
    “2 weeks,” she said.


    My Italian American mate told me he was going to play the “Don” in a local theatre play. I was impressed until his brother said he had also got a part and he was going to be the “key” part of the same donkey.


    A tour bus driver is driving with a bus load of OAPs when he is tapped on his shoulder by a little old lady.

    She offers him a handful of peanuts, which he gratefully munches up. After about fifteen minutes, she taps him on his shoulder again and she hands him another handful of peanuts.

    When she is about to hand him another batch he asks her:

    ‘Why don’t you eat the peanuts yourself?’

    ‘We can’t chew them because we’ve no teeth,’ she replies. ‘We just love the chocolate around them.’
