kid jokes

My husband has gotten on the email lists of some people who send him off-color jokes. Most of them have to do with putting women down. He usually deletes them. Why do people find that type of humor entertaining? I like surprise endings, plays on words or strange twists, for example: What do you say when a cat wins the dog show? Cat ‘as trophy. What does a lawyer wear to court? A lawsuit. Did you hear what happened when the red ship collided with the blue ship? All the sailors were marooned. I know these are silly kid jokes but they don’t poke fun at people or make others cringe when they hear them. They may groan about how ridiculous they are, but they usually get at least a smile. I like the story about the little boy in Sunday school who drew a picture of a scene from the bible and added an airplane to the scene. His teacher said, “There were no airplanes at the time.” The little boy said, “Oh, yes there were. What about Pontius Pilot?” (sic)

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
