    Why was the skeleton afraid to cross the road?

    Why did the banana go to the doctor?
    Because he wasn’t peeling well.

    Ok ok… an actual joke.

    Little boy answering the phone in a whisper “hello?”

    I feel I should add, though, that they are quite lovely. Can’t wait to learn to knit.

  7. When my daughter was coughing this last fall, I decided to put Vick’s on her feet. Afterall, if you read it on the internet it has to be true, right?! She looked at me with the straightest 4 year old face and said, “Mom, my feet aren’t coughing.”

    Thank you!

  8. Kathy Blackwelder Says:

    What did one wall say to the other? I’ll meet you in the corner! Sorry I’m terrible at jokes, but I love the dishcloths!

  9. Danielle J Says:

    Yesterday, as I was looking for a dishcloth and I thought “I need more dishcloths!” And look a giveaway for dishcloths…I so need to win this!

    Joke: A lawyer and a farmer sat by each other on the plane. The lawyer, thinking that all farmers aren’t smart decided to have a little fun with him. He told the farmer he wanted to play a game, but the farmer told the lawyer to leave him alone. He wished to sleep. The lawyer then said that his game would go like this…They would take turns asking each other questions. If the lawyer stumped the farmer then the farmer paid the lawyer 5 bucks if the farmer stumped the lawyer then the lawyer would pay him 500 dollars. So the lawyer went first. He asked the farmer how far from the earth is the moon. With out answering the farmer pulled out a 5 and handed it over. The lawyer smiled and waited for his question. The farmer asked…What goes up a hill with 3 legs and comes down with 4. The lawyer spent the next hour looking on his lap top for answers but with no prevail. So he turned to the farmer who had fallen asleep and gave him 500 dollars. the farmer went back to sleep, but the lawyer was curious to know the answer so he woke the farmer up and asked ‘so what does go up a hill with 3 legs and comes down with 4?’ With out saying a word, the farmer pulled out a five and gave it to the lawyer, then went back to sleep.

  10. Well, I can’t think of another joke so:

    Why did the monkey fall out of the tree?

    Because! It was dead!

Husband says, “son why’d you do that?” Son says, “I was just being an elephant…” you know, spraying water everywhere… except he doesn’t have a trunk…and it wasn’t water…lol.

    My joke
    There was a hillbilly couple with a child that was saving their money for a trip to the city as they had never been. they finally saved enough money and were on their way. They pulled up to the hotel and the dad said momma u stay here with the truck and me and jr will go inside for the arrangements. the father and son went inside and were amazed. there were huge chandoliers and people everywhere. Then they noticed this door that kept opening and shutting with lighted numbers above it. They watched as an elderly lady went inside and 60 seconds later a beautiful young woman came out. The father said to the son – Jr go get your momma quick!
    I always laugh at that one
    Thank you

  20. Jokes are always funny to me because I hardly remember any and rarely tell any. Right now the only thing that comes to mind is a knock knock joke my 3 year old got a little carried away with.

    knock knock

    Very very silly. 😉

    “Cash, check or charge?” I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase.
    As she fumbled for her wallet, I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.
    “So, do you always carry your TV remote?” I asked.
    “No,” she replied, “but my husband refused to come shopping with me,
    and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally.”

    The Silent Treatment
    A man and his wife were having some problems at home
    and were giving each other the silent treatment.
    Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him
    at 5:0 0 AM for an early morning business flight.
    Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,
    “Please wake me at 5:00 AM.” He left it where he knew she would find it.
    The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn’t wakened him,
    when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.
    The paper said, “It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.”
    Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

    A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
    An earlier discussion had led to an argument and
    neither of them wanted to concede their position.
    As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs,
    the husband asked sarcastically, “Relatives of yours?”
    “Yep,” the wife replied, “in-laws.”

    A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day…
    30,000 to a man’s 15,000.
    The wife replied, “The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men…
    The husband then turned to his wife and asked, “What?”

    A man said to his wife one day, “I don’t know how you can be
    so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.
    “The wife responded, “Allow me to explain.
    God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me;
    God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you !

  23. Jennifer F Says:

    A firefighter is working outside the station when he notices a girl in a little red wagon with small ladders on the sides, a garden hose in the middle, and wearing a firefighter’s helmet. The firefighter notices the girl is being pulled by her cat and dog. She has tied the wagon to her dog’s collar and to the cat’s tail.

    The firefighter says, “I don’t want to tell you how to run your firetruck, but if you were to tie that rope around the cat’s collar, I think you could go faster.”

    The little girl replies thoughtfully, “You’re probably right, but…then I wouldn’t have a siren!

    :o) Unique giveaway! Would love to learn how to make these but I only crochet!

  26. Jane Anne Says:

    (This exchange actually happened between my 6 year old son and my husband.)

    A boy looks at his dad and says, I have some good news and some bad news.
    The dad says, give me the bad news first.
    The boy says, Dad, you are going bald.
    Dad says, What’s the good news?
    The boy says, “You are growing hair in your ears!”

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  28. mannequin Says:

    A cat dies and goes to heaven. God welcomes him and says “what is it that you would like? We want to make sure you’re comfortable here/”
    “I would like a fancy pillow to lie upon. I always had to sleep upon the floor and I’d love a velvet pillow.”
    “Then you shall have it, dear cat”

    Three mice die the next day and go to heaven.
    “Welcome” said God. “I want to make sure you are all comfortable.Is there anything we can get you?”

    “We would love roller skates. We never had roller skates on earth.”
    “Then you shall have them little friends. Anything else, just let me know.”

    The next day, God makes the rounds, socializing and making sure everyone is comfortable.
    “Cat, how are you doing? How do you like that pillow?”
    “It’s lovely” said the cat, “thank you so much” he continued, “And the meals on wheels you sent by was simply delicious”.

  29. Cindy Says:

    I couldn’t decide which I liked better, so I decided to send you two:

    A man and his wife were making their first doctor visit prior to the birth of their first child. After everything checked out, the doctor took a small stamp and stamped the wife’s stomach with permanent ink.

    The couple was curious about what the stamp was for, so when they got home, he dug out his magnifying glass to try to see what it was. In very tiny letters, the stamp said, “When you can read this without a a magnifying glass, come back and see me.”


    At a motivational seminar 3 men are asked to come up to the stage.

    They are all asked, “When you are in your casket and friends and family are mourning upon you, what would you like to hear them say about you?

    The first guy says, “I would like to hear them say that I was the greatest doctor of my time, and a great family man.”

    The second guy says, “I would like to hear that I was a wonderful husband and school teacher who made a huge difference for the children of tomorrow.”

    The last guy replies, “I would like to hear them say…… LOOK!!! HE’S MOVING!!!!!”

    I hope those made you laugh!

    Love you!

    The Deal

    young boy had just gotten his driving permit. He asked his father, who was a minister, if they could discuss the use of the car. His father took him to his study and said to him, “I’ll make a deal with you. You bring your grades up, study your bible a little and get your hair cut and we’ll talk about it.”

    After about a month the boy came back and again asked his father if they could discuss use of the car. They again went to the father’s study where his father said, “Son, I’ve been real proud of you. You have brought your grades up, you’ve studied your bible diligently, but you didn’t get your hair cut!”

    The young man waited a moment and replied, “You know Dad, I’ve been thinking about that. You know, Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, Noah had long hair, and even Jesus had long hair….”

    To which his father replied….”Yes, and they WALKED everywhere they went!”

    if you want a laugh read my latest post and see what my daughter said to her aunt

  41. There was an old man sitting on his porch watching the rain fall. Pretty soon the water was coming over the porch and into the house.

    The old man was still sitting there when a rescue boat came and the people on board said, “You can’t stay here you have to come with us.”

    The old man replied, “No, God will save me.” So the boat left. A little while later the water was up to the second floor, and another rescue boat came, and again told the old man he had to come with them.

    The old man again replied, “God will save me.” So the boat left him again.

    An hour later the water was up to the roof and a third rescue boat approached the old man, and tried to get him to come with them.

    Again the old man refused to leave stating that, “God will save him.” So the boat left him again.

    Soon after, the man drowns and goes to heaven, and when he sees God he asks him, “Why didn’t you save me?”

    God replied, “You dummy! I tried. I sent three boats after you!!”

  46. Ashley Says:

    An old woman is riding in an elevator in a very lavish New York City Building, when a young
    and beautiful woman gets into the elevator, smelling of expensive perfume.
    She turns to the old woman and says arrogantly, “Romance” by Ralph Lauren, $150 an ounce!”
    Then another young and beautiful woman gets on the elevator, and also very arrogantly turns
    to the old woman saying, “Chanel No. 5, $200 an ounce!”
    About three floors later, the old woman has reached her destination and is about to get off the
    elevator. Before she leaves, she looks both beautiful women in the eye, then bends over and
    farts and says … “Broccoli, 49 cents a pound.”

  47. Nancy Says:
