Friday Funny May 10, 2019 Vacation Jokes

Happy Friday!  We all enjoy a few days off and I was off last week for vacation.  But now it is back to the grind and back to the Friday Funny!  So, here are a few vacation jokes.


Two Ohioans go on a fishing trip for vacation. They rent all the equipment – the reels, the rods, waders, rowboat, car, and even a cabin in the woods. The first day they go fishing, but they don’t catch anything.  The second day they go fishing, but they don’t catch anything.  The third day they go fishing, but they don’t catch anything.  This goes on until finally, on the last day of their vacation, one of the men catches one small fish. As they are driving home they are really depressed. One guy turns to the other and says, “Do you realize that this one lousy fish we caught cost us fifteen hundred bucks?” The other guy replies, “Gee, it’s a good thing we didn’t catch any more!”

As a cruise ship is passing a nearby island, one of the passengers sees a man standing by a large brush fire and waving at them.  The Captain just happened to be standing nearby.  The passenger asks the Captain, “Who is that guy?” “I don’t know,” says the captain, “but every time we pass by this way he gets excited.”


Is it true that mummies do not take vacations because they are afraid they will relax and unwind?

Is it true that robots go on summer vacation because they need to recharge their batteries?

Did the librarian get kicked off the plane because it was overbooked?


A man went on a long anticipated vacations to a tropical island.  He settles into his room  and begins to hear drums. He goes to the beach and still he hears the drums.  He goes to a restaurant for lunch and continues to hear drums!  That night he tries in vain to sleep because he continues to hear the drums!! Finally he storms over to the manager. “I’ve had it! Can’t you stop those drums?” he begs.

“No!” says the manager. “It’s very bad if the drums stop.”


“When the drums stop, the bass solo begins…
