The pub or the yacht club bar is normally the place that jokes are shared. So I thought that we could share a few in here, but please keep them clean like the forum rules say there are children looking at this.

A blonde rings her boss and says “I won’t be in today, I’ve burnt my feet”.
The boss replies " How did you burn your feet?"
And the blonde replies" I was cooking spaghetti and the instructions said Stand in boiling water for ten minutes".

Two blondes were talking
One said to the other which is closer Melbourne or the Moon?.
The other replies can you see Melbourne?.

That will get things started hopefully.


ok, there you go:
"Three blondes have just finished a puzzle so they decide to celebrate by going out. They walk into a bar chanting, “61 days 61 days!”

The bartender gets curious and walks over to them and asks, “Why are you chanting 61 days?”

One of the three answer, “Because the box said 3-6- years!” "

A jib sheet walks into a bar.

While he is enjoying his drink, a rusty shackle bumps into his bar stool and causes him spill. The Jib sheet gets pissed and before you know it he has challenged the shackle to a fight. The bartender, knowing how rough the rusty shackle is, tells them to take it outside. So they do.

A few minutes later the jib sheet walks back into the bar but the rusty shackle is nowhere to be seen. The jib sheet is in taters and all twisted up. He looks aweful.

The bartender looks at him and asks “Did you win?”

The jib sheet just looks at him and replies “I’m afraid not (a frayed knot)”
