Old Joke #37

A man gets sent to prison, and he's put into a cell with a bunch of lifers
who've all been there for quite some time. As they're sitting around in the
evening, one of the guys says "Eight," and the others all burst out laughing.
Then another guy says "Fourteen," and again they're all laughing.

The newcomer is really confused, and he asks what's so funny about these
numbers.

"It's a shorthand we've come up with," one of the others explains. "We like to
tell jokes to pass the time, but we've been doing this for so long, we've just
given each joke a number so we don't have to tell the whole thing."

The newcomer thinks he understands.

"Sixty-two," he says.

And indeed, the others all start to laugh - much harder than they've laughed all
evening.

"Is that a really good one?" he asks.

"Well," says one of the others, through snorts of laughter, "I've never heard
that one before!"

(If you liked this, thank Rachel. If you didn't, the address is still the same....)

It's been awhile since I heard that one and it is still a very cute joke.

I've been telling everyone the county fair/helicopter ride joke. It cracks me up.

It's a good job he didn't say 63 - not sure they could have coped with the humour...
Very funny :o)

I love it! I hadn't heard that variant on the joke before! I'd only heard the ending wherein the guy chooses a joke that had gotten a big reaction on a previous evening but nobody laughs. When he asks why, someone tells him, "Well, some people got it, some people don't" or "Humor's not for everyone."

It's always been one of my favorites, but this version is even funnier!

Have a great weekend.

I have heard this one, but it's not nearly as funny as #25! (Think Boothwyn, staples and foreheads...)
