Riddle Me This

posted by Momo Fali on June 21, 2013

For the past 35 years I have told one joke. One. It’s the only joke I can remember and it still gets a laugh if you’ve never heard it. Are you ready?

How do you top a car?

I’ll give you a moment to think...

You tep on the brake, tupid.

*cue cymbal*

My sister told a couple of groaners the other day like, “Have you heard about the actress who stabbed herself with her knife? That woman…Reese…”

To which everyone replied, “…Reese Witherspoon?”

And she said, “No, with her knife.”

*cymbal crashes to the floor*

So, look. It was kind of a tough week around here and I don’t just mean because we tell awful jokes. We could use a good guffaw. I’ll take your best one-liner, best riddle…whatever you have, but keep it fairly clean because this blog is read by a priest, a rabbi, and a minister…who walked into a bar. I’m here all night, folks! Don’t forget to tip your wait staff!

But, seriously. And, I don’t mean Siriously. I asked her to tell me a joke and look what she said.


everyone’s a comedian!

Clearly, I need your help folks. Hit me with your best shot in the comment section!

    Sadly most of the jokes I can remember are NSFB and would reveal just how much my humour resembles that of a 13 year old boy.

    Here’s my favorite lightbulb joke.

    How many psychologists does it take to change a lightbulb?

    Just one but it really has to want to change.

    We had to find a joke when Justin was in preschool for “J” Day. Here’s one on my favorites. 🙂

      Funny, when my husband tells that joke the punchline is, “ground up and in the freezer.”

      I think I should maybe be worried…

      • Amie

        When I tell that joke about men, the punchline is “pale and weak”

    Wait, one more terrible yet of-the-moment joke.
    What will Kanye and Kim’s kid’s future autobiography called?
    North, by North West.

    Can you believe they named the kid North West? I don’t know why I’m actually surprised by what a celebrity names their child anymore, but it never ceases to astound me. How someone can think “We’re bringing a life into this world… a precious being. You think we should go for a joke, or just screw the baby up? What do you want to do, honey?”

    My husband told me this yesterday. A horrible accident and a guy gets his penis hacked off. The doctor says, “Well, your replacement apparatus comes in different sizes. Your $1000, $5000 or $10,000 models.” The poor considerate fellow says that he will go home and consult with his wife. The next day he calls the doctor. “Well, turns out that we’ll be getting granite countertops.”

    A woman has twins, and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt, and is named Amal. The other goes to a family in Spain, and they name him Juan. Years later, she receives a picture from Juan in the mail. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wished she also had a picture of Amal. Her husband responds, “But they are twins. If you’ve seen Juan, you’ve seen Amal.”

    Loved this post … thanks for the laughs!

    A man dies and goes to heaven. He asks God, “God, why did you make women so beautiful?

    “So, you’d like them,” God says.

    “But, God, why did you make them smell so good.”

    “So, you’d like them, my son,” God says.

    “But, God, why did you make them so nice?”

    “So, you’d like them.”

    “But, God, then why did you make women so stupid?”

    “So, they’d like you.”
