    No...pi r not squared, pi r round. Cornbread r squared.

                  What did the bottle of Thousand Island say to the jar of mayo in the refrigerator?

                    Not really a joke per se, but if you mouth the words "olive juice" to someone it looks like you are saying "I love you." Don't ask me why one would do this, but it's kind of funny. Well, maybe.

                              Again, not a joke, but funny; well, at least to this grammar school kid in the late 60s/very early 70s.

                              "McDonald’s is your kind of place
                              Hamburgers in your face
                              French fries between your toes
                              Dill pickles up your nose
                              And now here come the frosted shakes
                              Made from polluted lakes
                              McDonald’s is your kind of place."

                                Here's the version I know, equally appealing to the grammar-school sensibility, and evidently meant to be sung to the same tune. I learned it from the kids at a camp where I was a counselor in the mid-70's:

                                McDonald's is my kind of place
                                They fry rattlesnakes.
                                The last time I was there
                                They fried my underwear.
                                I do not care!
                                It was my dirty pair.
                                McDonald's is my kind of place.

                                Why did the man stare at the can of orange juice instead of making it?
                                It said "concentrate."

                                Why did all the kids in class eat their homework?
                                Their teacher said it would be a piece of cake.

                                How can you tell if a potato is a prostitute?
                                Look for the label that says Idaho.

                                I recently read somewhere that the way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you've started. So far today I've finished a bottle of red wine, a bottle of Scotch, a box of chocolates and a pint of ice cream...

                                                Mentioned this one on another thread awhile back...

                                                Salesman drives up to a farm and notices a friendly pig with only 3 legs and missing an ear and tail.
                                                He asks the farmer what happened.
                                                Farmer says, "We had a fire in the house while we were sleeping. That there pig stormed into the house and raised the alarm, waking us up. We would all have died if it weren't for him."
                                                "So thats how he lost the leg?"
                                                "Naw....I was hunting awhile back and the pig followed me. Deep in the woods, a bear jumped out and attacked me. The pig drove him off, saving my life!"
                                                "So THATS how he lost the leg, with the bear?"
                                                "Well, how did he lose the leg?"
                                                "I tell you, a pig that good, well, you don't eat him all at once."

                                                    That is one of my favorite jokes. It was told to me by an actor friend of mine who made it a big, lovely piece of solo theater.

                                                        An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.
                                                        The two gentlemen were talking, and one said,
                                                        "Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great.. I would recommend it very highly."
                                                        The other man said, "What is the name of the restaurant?"
                                                        The first man thought and thought and finally said, "What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know.... The one that's red and has thorns."
                                                        "Do you mean a rose?"
                                                        "Yes, that's the one,'"replied the man. He turned towards the kitchen and yelled, "Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?"

                                                          3 couples are sitting around the table enjoying dinner.
                                                          "Pass the sugar, sweetie." says one man to his wife.
                                                          Not to be shown-up, the second guy turns to his wife and says "pass the bread, cupcake."
                                                          Third guy, under pressure blurts out to his wife "pass the pork you pig."

It so happens that one of the Chinese resturaunts I frequnet has a dish that is called (on the English side of the menu) "Fu Kan fried rice" (I've always assumed it's a bad transliteration of "Fukien".

The game warden watched as you consumed the bird, all of which is quite illegal. What do you have to say? How do you plead?"

                                                                                          The man shrugs and says "Nothing special, tastes just like bald eagle."

                                                                                              Johnny looks at his dad and says "You wanna tell her, or should I?"

                                                                                                  The old man is dying. He calls his son into his bedroom. "Sammy," he says, " I can smell all the way up here that your mother is downstairs in the kitchen, baking rugelach. You know that your mother's rugelach is my favorite thing in the world. I'm sure that this will be the last thing I ever eat. Would you please go downstairs and get me some?"
                                                                                                  Sammy leaves the room.
                                                                                                  Five minutes go by. Ten minutes.
                                                                                                  Fifteen minutes later, Sammy returns to his father's bedside, empty-handed.
                                                                                                  "Sammy," the old man says, "Where's the rugelach?"
                                                                                                  "Pop" Sammy says sheepishly, "Mom says they're for after the funeral."

As a good son of the church, he would like to take his final breath in the church. The minister supported this and they took him to the basement.

                                                                                                                  The ladies of the church were almost finished preparing the repast when he smelled his favorite lutefisk. Struggling out of bed, he crawled into the kitchen, pulled himself up to the table and had a piece in his hand when Elsie spied him.

                                                                                                                  "Ollie you bad boy. Put that back. You know those are for after the funeral."

                                                                                                                  Heard during Easter service in Wisconsin.

                                                                                                                      The way I heard this joke, the setup is that the old Jewish guy (or Ollie, if you prefer) has not been feeling well and is sure he's dying. He doesn't eat; he doesn't drink; he's depressed and miserable. His wife gives him an enthusiastic pep talk: "Don't worry! You're fine! Don't talk this way! You'll live a good long life."

                                                                                                                      He cheers up and says, "You know, you're right. I'm even feeling a little better. You know what I'd like to have? A little bit of that cherry strudel that you have in the freezer."

                                                                                                                      She says, "You can't have any; I'm saving it for the shiva."
