A selection from top 50 old jokes

  • I saw this man and woman wrapped in a barcode. I said: “Are you two an item?”
  • A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their tournament victories. After an hour, the manager came out and asked them to disperse. “But why?” they asked. “Because,” he said, “I can’t stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer.”
  • Went to the paper shop – it had blown away.
  • I sent my girlfriend a huge pile of snow. I rang her up and said: “Did you get my drift?”
