I debated writing this article about jokes. Then I remembered a past article I wrote, “The Best Medicine“. It focused on how laughter can often be the best medicine. What better way to get a dose or two, of that medicine than by reading some jokes. I’m game, are you??

I will keep them clean. Maybe add some PG-13 ones. Do not worry, I won’t be adding anything vulgar.

Here is a list of jokes I collected all over the Internet. I by no means take ownership of these jokes. You can find the links below, where I did find these jokes.

I would really love to hear some of your jokes. Just drop them in the comments section below!

Let’s get this started!!!

PS:  Newer jokes will be in italic.

Jokes I Hope That’ll Make You Laugh

A beggar approaches a grandmother at the beach with his hands out.

“Please, Señora,” the poor man pleads, “I haven’t eaten all day.”

“Good,” says the grandmother. “Now you won’t have to worry about cramps when you go for a swim.”

A busload of retired Americans was touring Switzerland. On the third day, they visited a farm known for its excellent quality goat cheese.

The young farmer’s wife gave them a tour, a cheese making demonstration, and finally some samples. As the retirees were tasting the cheeses, she pointed to a pasture full of goats.

She said, “This is a special pasture where we let our older goats graze happily after they can no longer give milk. In the United States, what do you do with your old goats?”

An old lady piped up, “Honey, they take us on bus tours.”

A couple in their nineties are both having some short-term memory loss.

While in for a checkup, the physician says that physically they’re okay, but since they’re having trouble remembering things, they might want to start writing things down.

Later that evening they’re sitting and reading when the husband gets up.

“Would you like anything from the kitchen?” he asks.

“Some vanilla ice cream,” his wife replies.


“Shouldn’t you write it down so you don’t forget it?” she asks.

“Don’t worry, I won’t forget.”

“Well,” she says. “A few raspberries on top would be great. You want to write that down?”

“I’ve got it, honey. A bowl of vanilla ice cream with raspberries on top.”

“And the chocolate sauce, too. Maybe you’ll forget that. Want me to write it down for you?”

A little miffed, he replies, “I’ve got it! Ice cream, raspberries, and chocolate sauce. I don’t need it written down, for gosh sakes!”

He waddles out to the kitchen. A half hour later, he comes back with a plate of ham and scrambled eggs, and gives it to his wife.

She stares at the plate a few seconds, then says, “You forgot my toast.”

After 45 years at the company and ready to retire, the boss walked into the office on his last day of work. He didn’t notice his zipper was down and his fly area wide open.

His long-time assistant walked up to him and said, “This morning when you left your house, did you close your garage door?”

The boss said he knew he’d closed the garage door, and walked into his office puzzled by the question.

Later, as he checked himself in the office mirror before his final lunch in the company cafeteria, he noticed his fly was open, so he zipped it up. Then he understood his assistant’s question about his ‘garage door.’

He headed out, paused by her desk, smiled, and asked, “When my garage door was open, did you see my stretch limo parked in there?”

“No,” she said, “I didn’t. All I saw was a rusty Olds with two flat tires.”


An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have.  The older she gets the more interested he is in her!

An elderly man was having hearing problems and went to see a specialist.

The doctor fitted him with some hearing aids that brought his hearing back to full strength.

After a few weeks, the man came back to make sure the new equipment was working properly, which it was.

The hearing specialist said, “It all seems perfect. Your family should be delighted you can hear everything now.”

“Oh no,” the man responded. “I haven’t told any of them. I just sit quietly, listening carefully. I’ve changed my will four times.”

An old guy walks into a bar and the bartender asks for ID.

“You’ve got to be kidding,” he said. “I’m almost 60 years old.”

The bartender apologized but said he had to see the license.

The guy showed his ID, then paid and told the bartender to keep the change. “The tip’s for carding me,” he said.

The bartender put the change in the tip cup. “Thanks,” he said. “Works every time.”

At the restaurant, a sign read “Karaoke Tonight!”
Grandma studied it before asking, “What kind of fish is that?

Did you hear about the crook who stole a calendar?
He got twelve months.

Don’t piss off old people.
The older we get, the less “Life in Prison” is a deterrent.

Everything’s starting to click for me!” said my father-in-law at dinner. “My knees, my elbows, my neck …

For her 40th birthday, my wife said, “I’d love to be ten again.”

So that Saturday, we had a heaping stack of chocolate-chip pancakes, her favorite childhood breakfast. Then we hit the playground and a merry-go-round. We finished the day with a banana split.

“So how did you enjoy being a kid for a day?” I asked.

“Great,” she said. “But when I said I wanted to be ten again, I meant my dress size.

How can I avoid getting wrinkles??

Take off your glasses…

How did Betty Crocker die?

She burned her buns.

I just wrote a book on reverse psychology
Do not read it!

I knew that my husband’s hearing had deteriorated after our friend—new to the city— asked where he could meet some singles.

“Well,” said my husband, “I see them in the Kmart parking lot diving for fries.”

“Dear,” I intervened. “Singles, not seagulls.”

I’ve decided I’m not old
I’m 25, plus shipping and handling.

My wife is the boss, but I always have the last word.
“Yes, ma’am!!”

“Poor Old fool,” thought the well-dressed gentleman as he watched an old man fish in a puddle outside a pub.

So he invited the old man inside for a drink.

As they sipped their whiskeys, the gentleman thought he’d humor the old man and asked, “So how many have you caught today?”

The old man replied, “You’re the eighth.”

Retirement is the best thing that has happened to my brother-in-law.

“I never know what day of the week it is,” he gloated.

“All I know is, the day the big paper comes, I have to dress up and go to church.”

Seeing her friend Sally wearing a new locket, Meg asks if there is a memento of some sort inside.

“Yes,” says Sally, “a lock of my husband’s hair.”

“But Larry’s still alive.”

“I know, but his hair is gone.”

LMDO: Laughing My Dentures Out

GGPBL: Gotta Go, Pacemaker Battery Low!

She’s only in her 40s, but my friend Mary has bounced back from cancer, heart problems, even a stroke.

Through it all, she and her husband, Mark, have kept their sense of humor.

One day she said, “You know what kills me … ?”

Smiling, Mark teased, “Apparently nothing.”

The day after visiting a fair, my wife was in agony.

“You know you’re past your prime,” she said, “when you hurt all over and all you rode was the massage chair.”

The Senility Prayer

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway.

The good fortune to run into the ones I do,

And the eyesight to tell the difference.

There was an elderly lady standing on the street.  She had both hands on her hat, while the wind was blowing her dress up around her waist.

A dignified gentleman came up and said “Madam, you should be ashamed of yourself, letting your skirt blow around like that.  It’s very indecent, and both your hands are holding on to that hat!”

She replied, “Look, Mister, everything I have down there is over 70 years old.  This hat is brand new!!”

Three seniors are out for a stroll.

One of them remarks, “It’s windy.”

Another replies, “No way. It’s Thursday.”

The last one says, “Me too. Let’s have a soda.”

Don’t look! I’m about to change.

While my parents were making their funeral arrangements, the cemetery salesman pointed out a plot that he thought they would like.

“You’ll have a beautiful view of the swan pond,” he assured them.

Dad wasn’t sold: “Unless you’re including a periscope with my casket, I don’t know how I’m going to enjoy it.”

While visiting a retirement community, my wife and I decided to do some shopping and soon became separated.

“Excuse me,” I said, approaching a clerk. “I’m looking for my wife. She has white hair and is wearing white shoes.”

Gesturing around the store, the clerk responded, “Take your pick.”

They just don’t have the guts.

His mom was in a jam.

Why was the sand wet?

Because of the seaweed.

Why wouldn’t the shrimp share his treasure?

Because he was a little shellfish.

    • Kahlua,
      Being an over 50 woman, I really loved your site. I love the laughs and the advice. I think your webpage is very attractive and easy to navigate. I am bookmarking this so I can come back and read more! Thank you for sharing!

      • Hi Joanne,
        That’s great to hear, Glad that you like my page. And I’m glad that it makes you laugh. We all need to laugh more, I say. LOL
        Thanks for stopping by and keep checking back,

  1. This is a nice post and made me smile – I completely agree that laughter is the best medicine and we all need more jokes in our life! I’m British so we tend to have a bit of a dry, sarcastic sense of humour! Do you think jokes about aging are more universal as it’s something we all go through?

    • I’m glad you got a smile at some of the jokes. I, personally, love to laugh. LOL

      I tried keeping the jokes in theme with my site, The Senior Life – 50 and Beyond. But I agree with you about it being universal, as it is something we all go through, or will be going through.

      Thanks for stopping by and please come again,

  2. Some of those are really good and I hadn’t heard them before. Like the old folks with memory loss really made me smile. I love to laugh too and I’ve got one of those loud laughs that people either love or hate. I get a ton of strange looks for what I laugh at sometimes but I just can’t help myself. It is a great way to keep from letting things get to me. Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Tina!!! I have a really loud laugh too. LOL When the girls were younger at times it embarrassed them. HAHA But, now that they’re off on their own, they have said they miss it. That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, lol

      I’m glad you like my jokes. I was worried I was adding ones people have already heard.

      I added some new ones today, so be sure to keep checking back!!

      And a big thank you for stopping by,

  3. LOL! I really enjoyed that first joke about the grandma and the beggar. I can relate because my Dad often complains of arthritis. These jokes are fantastic. I will use them on my friends and family. When things are sad, I always turn to a joke. They help me lift my head up. The world is not so bad when you have a joke or two.

    I do have a question though. How do you come up with on the spot jokes? My memory is poor, so I cannot recall things quick. I want to make my family laugh when things are sad. I look forward to reading your answer.

    Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

    • Hi Alex,

      Thanks for stopping by and glad ya liked the jokes. They definitely make things seem a little lighter.

      As for your question, you are asking the wrong person about remembering jokes. My memory is awful. And those I can remember I usually only remember the first half or the punchline. LOL, I know what, take a picture with your phone, of the joke!! LOL

      Be sure to keep checking back, I’ve added new jokes already,

  4. Ha ha ha you have some great jokes here..I loved the “A busload of retired Americans was touring Switzerland” joke, it was one of the jokes that killed me.
    I generally loved reading your jokes they were good and well thought and to add to this they were complety new to me.


    • I’m glad you liked them! I was afraid they were going to be ones people have already heard. Yeah, the Switzerland one is one of my favorites!
      Thanks for stopping by. Come again for more laughs!
