SHORT FUNNY STORY JOKESHere are five short funny story jokes to brighten your day. They all tickled me and I hope they make you smile too.

Short funny story jokes:

1. Birthday surprise:

Mike was sitting on the edge of the bed, watching his wife Jill, who was looking at herself in the mirror.

Since Jill’s birthday was not too far off, Mike asked her what she’d like to have for her birthday.

I’d like to be eight again,” Jill replied, still looking in the mirror.

On the morning of Jill’s Birthday, Mike got up early and made her a nice big bowl of Coco Pops.

After breakfast, Mike took Jill to the Adventure World theme park.

What a day they had. Mike put Jill on every thrilling ride in the park. First, it was the Death Slide, then the Wall of Fear, then the Log Flume and finally the Screaming Roller Coaster. And after the rides, they went to see the Dolphin Show.

Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park, exhausted.

Jill’s head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down.

However, Mike wasn’t finished. He then took Jill to McDonald’s where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake.

Then it was off to see a Disney movie, with popcorn, soda pop, and her favourite candy. Mike hoped Jill would see it all as a fabulous adventure and a bit like being eight again.

Finally, they staggered home and collapsed into bed, tired and weary.

At this point, Mike leaned over to Jill with a big smile on his face and asked lovingly, “Well dear, what was it like being eight again?

Her eyes opened slowly, one at a time, and her expression changed suddenly.

“I was referring to my dress size, you idiot,” Jill responded sarcastically

Moral of the Story: Even if a man’s listening, he’ll still get it wrong.

2. Cross-eyed Cattle:

One day, a Texan farmer, old Bert McKinley, was tending his beloved cattle on his ranch. As he was checking them all carefully, he noticed that one of the animals had gone completely cross-eyed.

So he asked a veterinarian friend of his to come over to the ranch to take a look at the cow, to see whether anything could be done.

The vet soon arrived and, having taken one quick look at the cow, he removed a long rubber tube from his bag and then inserted it into the cow’s butt. He then began blowing hard into the tube until the cow’s eyes began to straighten out.

The vet then charged the old farmer a hundred dollars for his work and went on his way.

About a week later, farmer McKinley was working with one of his ranch hands when he noticed that the same cow was cross-eyed again.

Having seen how the vet had corrected the problem, farmer McKinley decided he could save one hundred dollars by doing the work himself.

So he asked the ranch hand to get him a length of rubber tubing and together they inserted it into the animal’s butt.

The farmer then put his lips to the tube and started to blow as hard as he could.

Unfortunately, nothing happened. So farmer McKinley asked his ranch hand to give it a try.

Before he did anything, the ranch hand removed the tube from the animal, turned it around, and then put re-inserted it into the cow’s butt.

As the ranch hand was about to start blowing, the old farmer said, “What are you doing?

Well,” said the ranch hand, “It wouldn’t be very hygienic to use the side that you used with your lips.

3. Lateral thinking:

A game warden is doing his rounds around the lake when he spots a guy carrying what appears to be a bucket full of fish.

Hey, buddy,” shouts the game warden. “Do you have a valid permit to catch those fish?

No, sir, I don’t have a permit,” the guy responds sheepishly. “But, these are my own pet fish.

PET FISH?” the game warden exclaims. “What the hell do you mean, pet fish?

Well, back home I only have a tiny pond in my yard,” says the guy. “So, every night I bring them down here to allow them to swim around and get some exercise. I give them half an hour then I whistle, and they all jump back in the bucket.”

What a load of baloney,” says the game warden. “Fish are not like dogs. They don’t respond to someone whistling.

The guy thinks hard momentarily and then he says, “I can show you if you like.

Really?” says the game warden, quizzically. “Right, Whistling Jack Smith, you show me!

So, they walk back down to the lake and the guy tips the bucket and pours the fish back into the water.

He then stands there for what seems like an age.

Eventually, wondering what’s going on, the game warden says, “Well?

Well, what?” the guy responds.

Call them back,” says the game warden.

Call who back,” says the guy.

The fish!” says the game warden, getting increasingly exasperated.

Fish?” the guy responds, looking a little puzzled. “What fish?

Moral of the Story: To prove guilt, you’ll need evidence.

4. The blind man:

Two nuns were asked by the Mother Superior to paint the common room in the convent.

Now they were under strict instructions from the Mother Superior to ensure that they didn’t get paint on their habits.

So, as they were painting behind a closed door, they decided to carry out their work completely naked.

They were working away, making really good progress, when suddenly there was a knock on the door.

Who is it?” Sister Bernadette shouted.

It’s the blind man,” came the reply.

The two nuns looked at each other and agreed that if the man was blind, the fact that they were naked shouldn’t make any difference.

So, Sister Bernadette went over to open the door.

Wow!” the guy exclaims, “Great body, sister! Where do you want me to put the blinds?

Moral of the Story: Making assumptions can prove costly.

5. The IRS Audit:

Jim Mooney has been retired for a few years when suddenly he received a summons one day from the IRS.

He’s been selected randomly for a tax audit, so he decides it might be wise if he takes his attorney with him.

Unsurprised by the attorney’s presence, the IRS auditor explains the procedure and then says to Jim, “Mr Mooney, we have been reviewing your affairs and it appears that you have an extravagant lifestyle and yet you’re not in full-time employment nor do you have any other obvious sources of income. You’ve explained this by saying that you win money gambling. Well, sir, I have to tell you, the IRS doesn’t believe that’s a credible explanation.

Well I am a skilled gambler,” says Jim, “and I can prove it to you if you’re willing to participate in a wager with me.”

The IRS auditor considers this proposition momentarily and then says, “Yes, I’m willing to give that a try, so go ahead.

Right,” says Jim, “I’ll bet you one thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye.”

The IRS auditor considers this carefully and decides that it’s impossible.

OK then Mr Mooney,” he says, “You have a bet.”

At this point, and to the IRS auditor’s great surprise, Jim removes his glass eye and then bites it.

The auditor sits there in stunned silence,

Jim then says, “I’ll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye.”

Mr Mooney isn’t blind, so he can’t have another glass eye thinks the auditor. That’s got to be impossible, surely? So, the auditor accepts the bet.

So, Jim removes his dentures and then bites his good eye.

The auditor is stunned, once again, as he now realizes he’s lost three grand and Jim has his attorney as a witness. Naturally, the auditor is starting to get a little nervous.

Want to go again?” asks Jim

“What do you have in mind now?” asks the auditor.

Jim smiles and says, “I’ll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on this side of your desk and pee into that wastebasket next to your chair, without a single drop going anywhere in between.

The auditor, realising now that he’s dealing with a wily old fox, is feeling very cautious. However he thinks carefully about the proposition and he decides there’s no way this old guy could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees.

Jim stands in front of the desk, lowers his zipper, and strains mightily but the trajectory of his pee fails to reach the wastebasket and splashes all over the auditor’s desk.

The auditor is both ecstatic and relieved. He’s just turned a major loss into a huge win for him.

However, Jim’s attorney shouts out in obvious pain and puts his head in his hands face-down on the auditor’s desk.

 “What’s the matter?” asked the auditor.

When my client asked me to attend this audit today,” the attorney responded, “he bet me twenty-five thousand dollars that he could come in here and pee all over your desk and that you’d be happy about it.”

Moral of the Story: Don’t mess with old folks!
