Friday Funny October 12, 2018 Business Jokes

Happy Friday!  Congratulations for surviving yet another work week and speaking of work, here is a little workplace humor to wrap up your work week.


My boss is very easygoing. He told me not to think of him as the boss, rather, think of him as a friend who is never wrong.”

I tried to begin a limousine business. But despite putting all my money and effort into it, I never even got my first customer…all that time and nothing to chauffeur it.

I once had a job assisting a one-armed typist with capital letters.. it was shift work.

I recently applied for a job as an inspector at a mirror factory, it is something I could see myself doing.

My wife tells me that I talk in my sleep all the time. But I do not buy it, nobody at work ever mentions it.

If business slows down at a medicine factory could you hear a cough drop?

Did you hear about the ancient Egyptian man who tried to make a success in the stone quarry business? It turned out that it was a pyramid scheme all along

 Committee Meeting Rules
1) Never arrive on time, this marks you as a beginner.
2) Don’t say anything until the meeting is half over; this marks you as being wise.
3) Be as vague as possible; this prevents irritating the others.
4) When in doubt, suggest that a subcommittee be appointed.
5) Be the first to move for adjournment; this will make you popular since this is what everyone is waiting for.

Friday Funny October 5, 2018 Murphy’s Law and Corollaries

Happy Friday and Welcome to October!  No doubt you have heard of Murphy’s Law – the old adage that “If anything can go wrong it will go wrong.”  This week I thought I would expand on that and share some similar thoughts.


If you find a way to make ends meet, the ends will move. 

If you change lines because another line is moving faster, the line you just left will move faster than the one you changed to. 

If there is a 50-50 chance that you might be right, there is a 90 percent chance you will be wrong.

If it says “one size fits all,” it doesn’t. 

If you have lost an item, the quickest way to find it is to purchase its replacement.

If you ask more than one question in a work-related email the only question that will be answered is the one that you are least concerned with.

If you are waiting for an email to be answered, it will arrive as soon as you step away from your computer.

If you receive any recognition for work, it will be related to the lest enjoyable part of your job.

If you drop any tool or small item, it will roll to the least accessible spot in the room.

 If the shoe fits perfectly, you will not like the style.

If you have just poured a hot cup of coffee, your attention will be required for the exact amount of time it will take you coffee to become room temperature.

If you find a product that you really like, the company will cease production.

If you find a television show you really enjoy, it will be canceled.

If there is a song you despise, it will be played on the radio.  

At any event, anyone with a seat closer to the center of the row will arrive after you are seated.

The probability of an event happening has an inverse ratio to its desirability. 

The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.

I never make stupid mistakes. Only very, very clever ones. ~John Peel

Friday Funny September 28, 2018 High Flying Humor


Happy Friday.  This week, I have selected a few flying jokes chosen especially for you.


If someone got sick of being in an airport, would it be a terminal illness?

If you crossed an airplane with a magician would you get a flying sorcerer?

If you crossed a snake with an airplane would you get a Boeing Constrictor?

The fees airlines charge are getting out of hand. The last time I flew, they charged me for my emotional baggage.

I have a friend who is a pilot who never has any trouble being employed, it seems he is really great at landing a job.

A vulture was tired of flying south every fall and decided to take a plane instead. When he checked in at the airport the gate agent noticed two dead raccoons with his luggage so she asked if he wanted to check the raccoons through as luggage.  The vulture replied, “No, thanks, they’re carrion.”

A friend knows the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails.  ~Donna Roberts

Friday Funny September 7, 2018 The Class of 2022

Labor Day has come and gone and school is back in session.  In the annual effort to remind me how old I am getting, Beloit College has published the “Mindset List” noting events that have shaped the incoming freshman class, the class of 2022.  Most of the incoming freshman this year were born in 2000.  Here are some of my favorite items from this years list.

They’ve grown up with stories about where their grandparents were on 11/22/63 and where their parents were on 9/11.

Investigative specials examining the O.J. Simpson case have been on TV annually since their birth.

There has never been an Enron.

They have always been able to refer to Wikipedia.

 “You’ve got mail” would sound as ancient to them as “number, please” would have sounded to their parents.

Friday Funny August 17, 2018 Back to School Funnies


Happy Friday!  It is hard to believe but this week brought the start of a new school year to some with many more starting next week.  So, let’s sharpen those pencils and cover those books and have a little back to school humor.


The first day of school was always special. It was usually the only day of the year when I was not behind on my homework.

The first day of school is exciting, so is riding a roller coaster, but I never wanted to do either for nine months in a row.

I had a cross-eyed teacher once, she couldn’t control her pupils.

I once had a math teacher who called me average. I thought that was just mean.

One day I told my teacher that I didn’t have a pencil. She asked me, “How can you come to school without a pencil?”  I told her, I took the bus, duh.

One school day I got caught skipping. The Principal said, “Please just walk normal down the hall.”

An old teacher asked her student, “If I say, ‘I am beautiful,’ which tense is that?” The student replied, “It is obviously past.”

An exasperated teacher asks a student, “Are you ignorant or just apathetic?” The kid answers, “I don’t know and I don’t care.”

Teacher: “Name a bird with wings but can’t fly.” Student: “A dead bird.”

I am now at that age that people I went to school with are so grey and wrinkled and bald that they don’t recognize me.

Education is not filling a pail but the lighting of a fire.  ~William Butler Yeats
