3 funny jokes you can tell your colleagues at an office party


1. Buying a parrot:

Jerry’s wife decides she’d like a parrot for a pet as a birthday gift and of course, she wanted one that could talk.

Naturally Jerry knows it’s important to keep his wife happy, if he’s to be happy, but he doesn’t want to spend too much money on an exotic bird.

However he hears about an auction were exotic birds are being traded and he thinks this might be just the place to purchase a parrot at a reasonable price.

So Jerry arrives at the auction room and he immediately spots a parrot with a reserve price of $100.

That looks perfect,” thinks Jerry.

So bidding starts and they get to the $100 reserve price quickly and bidding is with Jerry at the $100. He thinks the bird is his when suddenly a mystery bidder says $120.

Having the price pushed up at the last minute is an irritation but Jerry is determined to get this bird for his wife.

So Jerry shouts, “$150!” but the mystery bidder then says, “$200!

Jerry is even more determined now and he decides he’ll go on up to a maximum of $500. He thinks to himself, “If I can’t get it for that price then I will just have to withdraw from the bidding.

So Jerry and the mystery bidder continue their contest and the price continues to soar until it reaches $500.

The auctioneer says, “Do I have any advance $500? OK fair warning. Going once…….

It looks like Jerry’s got it at $500, and he waits with bated breath as the auctioneer says, “Going twice…..

There’s no further bid from the mystery bidder.

Sold!” says the auctioneer.

Jerry breathes a sigh of relief.

As he’s paying for the bird Jerry says to the auctioneer, “I hope this parrot can talk. My wife would kill me if she knew I’ve paid this much money for a parrot only to find it can’t talk.”

The auctioneer smiles at Jerry as he says, “Yes, of course he can talk. Who do you think was bidding against you?

2. The bank robbery:

A man with a sawn-off shotgun and a scarf covering the lower half of his face bursts into a branch of Bank of America.

Freeze! No one move!” he shouts.

He hands a large leather bag to a teller and says, “Fill it with cash and you won’t get hurt.

The teller complies with his demand but as he grabs the cash-filled bag from her, the scarf slips briefly to reveal his face. Quickly he pulls it back into position.

However panicked that a witness may have seen his face he starts interrogating the customers.

Pointing his gun at a couple standing nearby the bank robber growls at the man, “Did you see my face, because if you did I will shoot you dead?

No, I didn’t see your face”, the man says hesitantly.

Are you sure?” says the bank robber.

Absolutely”, says the man, “but I’m fairly certain my wife got a good look at you.

3. The lawyer at the Pearly Gates:

A lawyer dies and finds himself standing at the Pearly Gates in front of St Peter.

St Peter looks at him and then says, “You’re a lawyer. I’m afraid you can’t come in here. There will be a place down below reserved for you.

However using all his courtroom know-how the lawyer pleads his case until eventually St Peter agrees to reconsider.

OK this is what I’ll do”, says St Peter. “You’ll spend the same amount of time in Hell as you did on Earth and then you can spend the rest of eternity up here in heaven.

Fair enough”, the lawyer responds.

Right then”, says St Peter, “we’ll see you again in three hundred and seventy five years.

Just a minute St Peter, what do you mean by three hundred and seventy five years?” says the lawyer, “I’m only sixty two!”

Yes, I know that”, says St Peter, “but up here we go by billing hours.
