Jokes workshop


#221

Tried the following out on a colleague. She said “what is wrong with you?”

Did you hear about the cafe where they charge you more for a cup of tea the longer you leave the tea bag in?

Sounds a bit steep.


#222

What did the Hollywood actress’s husband say when she asked him how he wanted the asparagus cooking?
Kate Blanchett


#223

They’re going to do a British remake of ConAir. It’s called JetLag


#224

This has Dave’s Joke of the Fringe written all over it


#225

I’ve been talking to my psychiatrist about my life-limiting fear of circuses, and I feel much better as long as I remember that every clown has a silver lining.


#226

I don’t get the connection between the clowns and the silver lining.


#227

This is why it’s in the workshop. Like, every cloud has a silver lining, but somethign about cutting into a clown and it being all shiny… I don’t fucking know


#228

Ahm oot


#229

In the book IT Pennywise is often referenced as having a silver outfit, IIRC.


#230

Maybe you could go for something a bit wider, e.g.

“I’ve been talking to my psychiatrist about my life-limiting fear of circuses, and I feel much better as long as I remember that every clown has a silver lining.”

“Satin?”

“No, never go in due to fear, I told you!”


#231

I’ve been reading Scout’s thread

And trying to work out if there’s a Test-Icicles / Rest(in peace)-Ricicles joke to make but it’s not really happening.


#232

Did you hear about the hitman who only killed circus workers? His motto was, ‘Every clown has a silver lining’

How about that


#233

Something about Scooby Doo?


#234

I think this clown debacle is too big a task for even the jokes workshop


#235

If even you won’t persist then I guess it’s a fully lost cause


#236

How’s about:

My friend was telling me the other day that he has acute coulrophobia stemming from the fact that he believes all clowns are robots on the inside.

I said to him, “You shouldn’t worry about it. Every clown has a silver lining.”


#237

Maybe every clown GETS a silver lining, rather than has. That way it sounds like the hitman is lining them with silver, although it would still make more sense with a lead lining


#238

But the silver lining makes them like currency - inside every clown is money. Clowns. Money.


#239

But surely learning that all clowns are lined with precious metal only heightens his suspicion that clowns are robots


#240

Exactly! That’s what elevates the joke into the realms of genius.
