From multiple sources, including me: some original Carnac jokes, and some newer ones done in his style.

Unintended setup lines are the best.

They’re gifts from the god of comedy.

This evening I dined at a fine fast-food restaurant. Behind the counter were a young high-school girl and boy. The girl began to chide the fellow for his messy hair.

“I can’t help it,” he replied. “I overslept and could only take a quick shower. I didn’t blow-dry it.”

“Don’t you have a comb?” she asked incredulously.

“No,” he scoffed. “I’m a guy. I don’t own a comb.”

“Gross,” she said as she rolled her eyes. “Look, I’ll buy you a comb.”

This is when my comedy powers became activated. I leaned across the counter toward the two of them and asked the young man, “If she does buy you a comb – you know what you should tell her?”

“Uh, no…” he replied. “What should I tell her?”

“Tell her,” I said…

“‘Thanks, I’ll never part with it!'”


Ladies, gents, Dave Letterman is right. There is no “off” position on the genius switch.

In the manner of “Whose Line Is It Anyway”: The Halloween Hoedown!

Image from youtube

My friend Jessie reminded me that I wrote this a while back. So I’ll recycle!

I like Halloween, it’s really pretty neat
I like to see the kids when they go up and down my street
But I don’t think their parents will bring them by this year –
Maybe it’s because I gave out ice-cold cans of beer!

Says it all.

Canadian humor (humour?)

Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God went missing for six days. Eventually on the seventh day the archangel Gabriel found him resting. He asked God, “Where have you been?”

God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds. “Look Gabriel, look what I’ve made.”

Gabriel looked puzzled and asked, “What is it?”

“It’s a planet,” God replied, “and I’ve put life on it. I’m going to call it Earth, and it’s going to be a place of great balance.”

“Balance?” inquired Gabriel, still confused.

God pointed to different areas. “For example, Northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while Southern Europe is going to be poor.

The Middle East over there will be a hot spot, and Antarctica will be a cold spot.

Over there I’ve placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people.

And over there, I call this place America. North America will be rich and powerful and cold, while South America will be poor and hot and friendly. Can you see the balance?”

“Yes,” said Gabriel, as he pointed to a large land mass. “What’s that one?”

“Ah,” said God. “That’s Canada, the most glorious place on Earth. There will be beautiful snow-capped mountains, untouched rivers, and forests of exquisite, timeless beauty. The people will be good-looking, intelligent, and humorous. And they’re going to be found traveling the world. They’ll be extremely sociable, hard-working, and high-achieving, and they will be respected throughout the world as artisans, diplomats, inventors, and pioneers.”

Gabriel gasped in wonder and admiration. But then he said, “What about balance, Lord? You said there will be balance!”

God replied, “Wait till you see the bastards I’m putting just south of them!”

Rockin’ the 902: One last joke

A US couple was vacationing in Nova Scotia. One day while driving they saw a highway sign for the town of Tatamagouche.

“Oh look,” said the husband. “There’s Tatta-mah-gush. We should stop in there.”

“Honey,” replied the wife, “that’s not the way they pronounce it. It’s Tah-ta-ma-Goosh.”

“No, sweetheart,” said the husband. “I heard the TV announcer pronounce it Tatta-mah-gush.”

“Then he was wrong, dear,” the wife shot back. “The hotel clerk said Tah-ta-ma-Goosh.”

As they sped toward the exit they loudly argued back and forth, both sure they were right, even as they pulled into the town and walked through the door of a local restaurant.

As they stood at the counter the husband asked the server, “Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us? Would you please pronounce where we are…very slowly?”

The server leaned over the counter, stared intently at the couple, and said:


Joke of the day

Snow White, Superman, and Pinocchio are walking along.

They see a sign: “Contest for World’s Most Beautiful Woman.” Snow White goes in. Moments later she comes out smiling, wearing a crown.

They walk along and see another sign: “Contest for World’s Strongest Man.” Superman goes in. Moments later he comes out smiling, wearing the belt.

They walk along and see a sign: “Contest for World’s Greatest Liar.” Pinocchio goes in. Moments later he comes out with his head down, crying.

He looks at the other two and sobs, “Who the hell is Mitt Romney?!”
