animated-light-bulb-image-0022With the nights now drawing in, I thought I’d theme this week’s jokes accordingly. Hope they provide a few chuckles:

Red sky at night: shepherd’s delight. Blue sky at night: day.


Did you hear about the night-owl who installed a skylight so he could watch the stars?
The people in the room above were furious.


Did you hear about the fool who sat up all night wondering where the sun had gone?
The next morning it dawned on him.


Did you hear about the man who drove his car into the lake one night?
He was trying to dip his headlights.


I used to be able to pull all-nighters but now I can barely pull all-dayers.


A woman takes a lover during the day, while her husband is at work.

One day, her 9-year-old son happens to be in the closet during one of her romps. Her husband comes home unexpectedly, so she hides the lover in the closet.

The little boy says, “It’s dark in here.”
The man whispers, “Yes, it is.”
Boy – “I have a baseball.”
Man – “That’s nice.”
Boy – “Want to buy it?”
Man – “No, thanks.”
Boy – “My dad’s outside.”
Man – “OK, how much?”
Boy – “$250.”

A few weeks later, the same thing happens and the boy and the mom’s lover end up in the closet together.

Boy – “It’s dark in here.”
Man – “Yes, it is.”
Boy – “I have a baseball glove.”
Man – Remembering last time, asks, “How much?”
Boy – “$750.”
Man – “Fine.”

A few days after that, the father says to the boy, “Grab your ball and glove. Let’s go outside and toss the baseball.”

The boy says, “I can’t. I sold them.”

The father asks, “How much did you sell them for?”

The son says “$1,000.”

The father says, “It’s terrible to overcharge your friends like that. That’s way more than those two things cost. I’m going to take you to church and make you confess.”

They go to the church and the father makes the little boy sit in the confession booth and he closes the door.

The boy says, “It’s dark in here.”
The priest says, “Don’t start that c*@^! again!”
