Happy Friday! We all have those days that it is just a little harder to get motivated – these jokes are for days like that.


I read a story the other day about an apathetic man who died.  Apparently, it was a shrug overdose.

Friday Funny July 15, 2022 Inflation Jokes

Happy Friday! The economy seems to be taking its lumps these days and the price of everything is on the way up. I cannot help you with the prices, but I can offer you a laugh or two about them.


In today’s economy, it seems like if you can finally make ends meet, inflation moves the ends.

Inflation is a lot like toothpaste, once it is out, it is very difficult to get it back in again.

I went to one of those internet sites that will estimate the value of your car.  It asked if the tank was empty or full.

I heard that the price of grapes has gone up because there was a raisin demand.

Now that Tom Brady has retired from football, I heard he is considering running for President. His platform will be lowering inflation.

I think I am a walking illustration of today’s economy: my hairline is in recession and my stomach is a victim of inflation – put these together and I am heading toward deep depression.

I remember as a kid I would put air in my bike tires for free. Now it’s $1.50! I guess that is because of “inflation.”

Inflation is bad, the other day I paid twenty dollars for the ten-dollar haircut I used to get for five dollars when I had more hair.

Inflation is really getting out of hand, but that is just my 4 1/2 cents.

I think there are a lot of jokes about inflation these days because demand has increased following a period of low interest….


“Every short statement about economics is misleading (with the possible exception of my present one).” ~ Alfred Marshall

Friday Funny July 8, 2022 Computer Jokes

If you crossed a computer programmer with an athlete, would you get a disk-us thrower?

Did the computer sneeze because if had a virus?

When computers get hungry do they eat chips?

The other day I went to a restaurant and a computer came up to me and said, “I’ll be your server today.”

My co-workers call me “The Computer”.  It has nothing to do with my intelligence. I just go to sleep if left unattended for 15 minutes

If you think that your computer, laptop and phone spying on you is scary then think again, because your vacuum cleaner has been gathering dirt on you for years.

Is it true that after work computer programmers go out and grab a byte?

Our computers went down at work today so we had to do everything manually.  It took me a few minutes to shuffle the cards for Solitaire.

I was going to tell more jokes about computers, but they are not very PC.


“Never trust a computer you can’t throw out a window” ~Steve Wozniak

Friday Funny June 10, 2022 Poor Richard’s Wisdom

Happy Friday!  This week I thought I would share some notable sayings that Benjamin Franklin gave us through Poor Richard’s Almanac.


Fish and Visitors stink after three days.

Who has deceiv’d thee so oft as thy self?

Well done is better than well said.

What you would seem to be, be really.

Search others for their virtues, thyself for thy vices.

There is much difference between imitating a good man, and counterfeiting him.

Wink at small faults — remember thou hast great ones.

Little Strokes, Fell great Oaks.

Many Foxes grow grey, but few grow good.

Beware of little Expenses: a small Leak will sink a great Ship.

Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead.

A Slip of the Foot you may soon recover, but a slip of the Tongue you man never get over.

Love your Neighbour; yet don’t pull down your Hedge.

Lost time is never found again.

The Sting of a Reproach is the Truth of it.

Glass, China, and Reputations, are easily crack’d, and never well mended.

He that can have patience can have what he will


“This would be a great time in the world for some man to come along that knew something.” ~Will Rogers
