Friday Funny: I'm the Real Joker

It's almost Friday, a day for winding down, for looking forward to the weekend. It's a great time to share a laugh and a giggle, so on Fridays I like to share something funny with you, and I hope you'll join in the fun.

So, the idea is to share anything that is humorous. It can be a funny post you've written in the past or present, a video you've found, a joke you've heard, a funny picture...anything that tickles your funny bone.
We used to be joke tellers. Whenever at a gathering, Will would tell some joke and 'embellish' it beyond all belief, stringing listeners on for ages and then...promptly forget the punch line. He was notorious for it. When he started to tell a joke, we would all groan, but then listen intently hoping that this time it would be different and he'd remember the funny bit.

In my opinion, I was better at the joketelling, I caught people by surprise (because Will was the outgoing one in unfamiliar company), and unlike my dear hubby, I remembered the punch line.

So this week I thought I'd share a few knee-slappers:
One morning, Kevin wakes up to find his dog dead, lying next to his bed. He can't quite believe it, so decides to take him to the vet. The Vet takes one look at the dog and says, "Kevin, I'm truly sorry, but your dog is dead."

"No. He can't be dead. I demand a second opinion!" replies Kevin.

The doctor nods and agrees. He goes into the back room and brings out a cat. The cat jumps all over the dog, bites it, looks at the vet and says, "Meow."

The vet again says, "I'm sorry but your dog is truly dead."

Kevin says, "No!, I don't believe it, I want another opinion."

The vet nods and brings out a Labrador Retriever, which then begins to jump all over the dead dog, tugging at it before barking, "Woof roof woof!"

The vet says, "Sir, your dog is dead. That will be 400 dollars."

"To tell me my dog is dead?" asks Kevin.

"Well," the vet replies, "I charge 50 dollars, the cat scan is 200 and the lab test is 150 dollars..."
Here's one that my dad used to enjoy telling:
Three guys die and end up at the gates of heaven, talking to St. Peter.

"So," Peter asks the first guy, "how many times did you cheat on your wife?"

"None. I had a perfect marriage."

"Great," says Peter. "You get to cruise around heaven in a Mercedes. And you, how many times did you cheat on your wife?"

"Only twice, I think," says the second guy.

"Okay. You get to cruise around heaven in a Cadillac. And you, how many times did you cheat on your wife?"

"12 times. Maybe 13," says the third guy.

"Okay," says Peter. "You get a rusty Ford."

Later that day, the guy in the Cadillac sees the guy in the Mercedes crying.

"What's wrong?"

"I just saw my wife."


"She was riding a skateboard."
And a small riddle for you:
Q: What do you call cheese that's doesn't belong to you?
A: Nacho Cheese.
Not a joke we used to tell obviously, but I find although I'm a dog person I just love internet cats, so I couldn't resist.
