    Billy Connolly Stand Up Jokes

    “Life is a waste of time. Time is a waste of life. Get wasted all the time and you’ll have the time of your life.”

    People shout: “Hey I know you! You’re That Guy.”
    “My parents used to take me to the pet department and tell me it was a zoo.”

    “So, have you heard about the oyster who went to a disco and pulled a mussel?” “Never trust a man, who when left alone with a tea cosy… Doesn’t try it on.”


    “What always staggers me is that when people blow their noses, they always look into their hankies to see what came out. What do they expect to find?”

    A man wants to become a bell-ringer, but has no arms. So he tells the priest of his wish, but the priest says: “How can you be our bell-ringer without arms?” He replied “Arms? Who needs ’em!” So the arm-less guy runs to the top of the bell tower, and starts ringing the bell with his face, making beautiful music. Unfortunately, he misses the last note, and falls from the bell tower. A bunch of parishioners gather around him, asking: “Who is this guy?” The priest says: “I don’t know, but his face rings a bell.”

    A police officer in a small town stopped a motorist who was speeding down the main street.

    “But officer,” the man began, “I can explain.”

    “Just be quiet,” snapped the officer. “I’m going to let you cool your heels in jail until the chief gets back.”

    “But, officer, I just wanted to say,…”

    “And I said to keep quiet! You’re going to jail!”

    A few hours later the officer looked in on his prisoner and said, “Lucky for you that the chief’s at his daughter’s wedding. He’ll be in a good mood when he gets back.”

    “Don’t count on it,” answered the fellow in the cell. “I’m the groom.”

    A blonde and a lawyer were seating next to each other on a flight. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap, so she politely says no and turns to the window for a nap.

    The lawyer insists and explains that the game is easy and very fun. He explains, “I’m going to ask you a question, and if you do not know the answer, you’ll pay me $5, and vice versa.”

    Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep. The lawyer, now agitated, says, “Okay, if you do not know the answer, you pay me $5, and if I do not know the answer, I pay you $500.”

    This catches the attention of the blonde and, imagining that there will be no end to this torment unless she makes part of his game, she agrees to play.

    The lawyer asks the first question, “How far is the Earth from the Moon?”

    The blonde did not say a word, opened her purse, took out a $5 bill and handed it to him. “Okay,” said the lawyer, “it’s your turn to ask.”

    She asks the lawyer: “What goes up a mountain with three legs and comes down with four legs?”

    The lawyer, perplexed, picks up his laptop and searches all his references — no answer. He searches the net and the library of Congress, no answer. Frustrated, he sends emails to all his friends and co-workers but, also, no answer. After an hour, he wakes the blonde and reluctantly hands her $500.

    “Thank you,” the blonde says, and goes back to sleep some more.

    The lawyer, annoyed, wakes her up and asks, “Well, what is the answer?”

    Without a word, she takes her purse, hands him $5, and goes back to sleep.

    And you thought blondes were dumb! Well done! Hahaha!  😆

    A controller at the Nashville, Tennessee airport told me about an incident from several years ago when he cleared a Cessna 172 (4 seater small aircraft) for landing.

    As the Cessna turned to final approach, an airliner called in ‘over the marker’ (5 miles from the airport).

    The Cessna was about a half mile from the runway, and the controller knew he could land and clear the runway well before the airliner would land, so he cleared the airliner to land as well.

    A few seconds later, the Cessna pilot asked the controller, “How far behind me is that 737?”

    Before the controller could respond, the airline pilot keyed his mike, and in a deep bass voice said, “Don’t look back!…”

    (True story) LOL Bet he didn’t muck about landing that wee Cessna.

    “There’s a growing trend of older Americans who are using marijuana in their retirement. That makes sense because old people are always talking about their joints.” –Jimmy Fallon

    “In November, Colorado voted to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Currently, only Colorado residents can purchase marijuana in the state.
    But they may open it up to nonresidents too. The new state slogan is ‘Come for the legal marijuana, stay because you forgot to leave.'” –Jimmy Kimmel

    “Several states are now looking into the possibility of taxing marijuana as a source of revenue. That is so typical of the government, isn’t it? Trying to squeeze blood from a stoner.” –Jay Leno

    “According to a new book coming out by a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, apparently when he was in high school, President Obama smoked large amounts of marijuana. You know what that means? He could be our first green president.” –Jay Leno

    “The White House admitted that Vice President Biden’s endorsement of gay marriage forced him to come out in favor of it. So in a related story millions of Americans are trying to get Biden hooked on pot.” –Conan O’Brien

    “Some Democrats in Congress are now trying to change the marijuana laws, making it legal so it can be taxed and increase revenue.
    Is that what the government’s come down to now? We’re selling drugs to pay off our debts? When did Uncle Sam become Scarface?” –Jay Leno

    “The White House softball team played the pro-marijuana lobbyists’ team and lost 25-3. Still no word yet on which side President Obama played for.” –Jay Leno

    “A phone survey found 70 percent of Americans support legalizing marijuana.
    I can’t believe that many marijuana supporters managed to answer the phone.” –Craig Ferguson

    “Stoners just got a powerful new ally in the fight to legalize marijuana — conservative broadcaster Pat Robertson. He said it’s time to ‘you know, legalize it, tax it, and keep it away from Mel Gibson.’” –Craig Ferguson

    “Today, Snoop Dog endorsed Ron Paul for president. Snoop said he likes Paul’s positions on everything from legalizing pot … to legalizing pot.” –Conan O’Brien

    “Cannabis always made me paranoid; I felt like people were watching me. And now I’m sober, and I’ve got this talk show in the middle of the night on CBS, and I now know that no one is watching me.” –Craig Ferguson

    One night, the Potato family sat down to dinner–Mother Potato and her three daughters. Midway through the meal, the eldest daughter spoke up. “Mother Potato?” she said. “I have an announcement to make.”

    “And what might that be?” said Mother, seeing the obvious excitement in her eldest daughter’s eyes.

    “Well,” replied the daughter, with a proud but sheepish grin, “I’m getting married!”

    The other daughters squealed with surprise as Mother Potato exclaimed, “Married! That’s wonderful! And who are you marrying, Eldest daughter?”

    “I’m marrying a Russet!”

    “A Russet!” replied Mother Potato with pride.

    “Oh, a Russet is a fine tater, a fine tater indeed!”

    As the family shared in the eldest daughter’s joy, the middle daughter spoke up. “Mother? I, too, have an announcement.”

    “And what might that be?” encouraged Mother Potato.

    Not knowing quite how to begin, the middle daughter paused, then said with conviction, “I, too, am getting married!”

    “You, too!” Mother Potato said with joy. “That’s wonderful! Twice the good news in one evening! And who are you marrying, Middle Daughter?”

    “I’m marrying an Idaho!” beamed the middle daughter.

    “An Idaho!” said Mother Potato with joy. “Oh, an Idaho is a fine tater, a fine tater indeed!”

    Once again, the room came alive with laughter and excited plan for the future, when the youngest Potato daughter interrupted. “Mother? Mother Potato? Um, I, too, have an announcement to make.”

    “Yes?” said Mother Potato with great anticipation.

    “Well,” began the youngest Potato daughter with the same sheepish grin as her eldest sister before her, “I hope this doesn’t come as a shock to you, but I am getting married, as well!”

    “Really?” said Mother Potato with sincere excitement. “All of my lovely daughters married! What wonderful news! And who, pray tell, are you marrying, Youngest Daughter?”

    “I’m marrying Peter Jennings!”

    “Peter Jennings?!” Mother Potato scowled suddenly. “But he’s just a common tater!”

    How do court stenographers keep a straight face?

    These are from a book called “Disorder in the Court” and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while the exchanges were taking place.


    ATTORNEY: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?

    WITNESS: Gucci sweats and Reeboks.


    ATTORNEY: Are you sexually active?

    WITNESS: No, I just lie there.


    ATTORNEY: What is your date of birth?

    WITNESS: July 18th.

    ATTORNEY: What year?

    WITNESS: Every year.


    ATTORNEY: How old is your son, the one living with you?

    WITNESS: Thirty-eight or thirty-five, I can’t remember which.

    ATTORNEY: How long has he lived with you?

    WITNESS: Forty-five years.


    ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn’t it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn’t know about it until the next morning?

    WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?


    ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?

    WITNESS: He’s 20, very close to your IQ.


    ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?

    WITNESS: Are you sh*tting me?


    ATTORNEY: So the date of conception (of the baby) was August 8th?

    WITNESS: Yes.

    ATTORNEY: And what were you doing at that time?

    WITNESS: Getting laid


    ATTORNEY: She had three children, right?

    WITNESS: Yes.

    ATTORNEY: How many were boys?

    WITNESS: None.

    ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?

    WITNESS: Your Honor, I need a different attorney. Can I get a new attorney?


    ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?

    WITNESS: By death.

    ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?

    WITNESS: Take a guess.


    ATTORNEY: Can you describe the individual?

    WITNESS: He was about medium height and had a beard.

    ATTORNEY: Was this a male or a female?

    WITNESS: Unless the Circus was in town I’m going with male.


    ATTORNEY: Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney?

    WITNESS: No, this is how I dress when I go to work.


    ATTORNEY: Doctor, how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?

    WITNESS: All of them. The live ones put up too much of a fight.


    ATTORNEY: ALL of your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you attend?

    WITNESS: Oral.


    ATTORNEY: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?

    WITNESS: The autopsy started around 8:30 PM.

    ATTORNEY: And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?

    WITNESS: If not, he was by the time I finished.


    ATTORNEY: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?

    WITNESS: Are you qualified to ask that question?


    ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?

    WITNESS: No.

    ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?

    WITNESS: No.

    ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?

    WITNESS: No.

    ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?

    WITNESS: No.

    ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?

    WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.

    ATTORNEY: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?

    WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practising law.

    Thy Computers Sometimes Crash!

    If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
    and the bus is interrupted at a very last resort,
    and the access of the memory makes your floppy disk abort
    then the socket packet pocket has an error to report.

    If  your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
    and the double-clicking  icon puts your window in the trash,
    and your data is corrupted cause the  index doesn’t hash,
    then your situation’s hopeless and your system’s gonna  crash!

    If  the label on the cable on the table at your house,
    says the network is  connected to the button on your mouse,
    but your packets want to tunnel to  another protocol,
    that’s repeatedly rejected by the printer down the  hall……

    And  your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss,
    so your icons in  the window are as wavy as a souse;
    then you may as well reboot and go out  with a bang,
    ‘cuz sure as I’m a poet, the sucker’s gonna  hang.

    When  the copy on your floppy’s getting sloppy in the disk,
    and the macro code instructions cause unwanted risk,
    then you’ll have to flash the  BIOS and you’ll want to RAM your ROM,
    just quickly turn the darn thing off and run to tell your Mom!

    Well,  that certainly clears things up for me.. How about  you?

    Thank  you, Bill Gates, for bringing all this into our lives
