TOP 5 FRIDAY: Day 5 – your jokes!

on October 5, 2012 in 31 Days of Jokes, TOP 5 FRIDAY with 12 comments by

TOP 5 FRIDAY is when we each list five of our favorite things, depending on the topic. Feel free to join in via the comments or by posting on your own blog and linking back here. Play along. It’s Friday.

. . . . .

Ever since this month started [a full five days ago], my inbox has been FLOODED with you guys submitted your favorite jokes.

It’s been a joy, to be sure.

I have laughed, I have cried, I have rolled my eyes.

So I decided that each Friday this month, I’m going to post the top five jokes shared by the reader friends here at AnnieBlogs. By the end of this month, you’re gonna have a serious arsenal of humor to share around the dining room table [which, apparently, is when most of you guys retell these jokes, also according to emails].

Without further adieu, five jokes for your Friday!

. . . . .

How do you catch a rare rabbit?

Unique up on it!

[thank you, Frances!]

. . . . .

What did the snowman say when offered a mug of hot cocoa?

“No thanks, that stuff runs right through me.”

[thanks, Gaylene!]

. . . . .

I was visiting my daughter and son-in-law last night when I asked if I could borrow a newspaper.

“This is the 21st century, old man,” he said.

“We don’t waste money on newspapers. Here, you can borrow my iPad.”

Let me tell you, that fly never knew what hit it….

[thanks, Melissa! Jokes from Prague are the coolest.]

. . . . .

Want to hear a cat joke?

Just kitten.

[thank you, Kim!]

. . . . .

 Why does a lobster not like to share?

Because they’re shellfish.

[bravo, Wesley!]

You can share your favorite joke in the comments or email it to me and we’ll compile another list for next Friday!
