All Tasteless, Some Funny,
This review is from: The Mammoth Book of Tasteless Jokes (Mammoth Books) (Paperback)
This book is full of jokes organized by topic. It's a fairly comprehensive collection, so readers are likely to have heard many of them before. And, as advertised, they are largely in poor taste. Topics include sex, crimes, sex crimes, lawyers, racial minorities, unpleasant body secretions, and so on.
In the spirit of "fair use," here is a selection of the funnier, briefer jokes.
- A man walks into a bar and asked the barmaid for a double entendre, so she gives him one.
- Three women walk into a bar. "Congratulations," says the barman. "You've subverted a male-dominated joke format."
- What do you do if a kitten spits at you? Turn the grill down.
- My father is in a coma. He's just living the dream.
- What's the definition of perfect balance? A pregnant hunchback.
- I went to see this quadriplegic juggler. He wasn't very good, he kept dropping the quadriplegics.
- What has four legs and one arm? A Doberman in a playground.
- "I first realized I was dyslexic when I went to a toga party dressed as a goat."
- What's worse than finding a worm in your apple? The Holocaust.
- My grandfather knew the exact hour of the exact day of the exact year he was going to die. The judge told him.
- Knock, knock jokes. Completely wasted on the homeless.
- What's small, green and falls apart? A leperchaun.
- I was reading in the paper about this dwarf who had his pocket picked and his wallet stolen. How could anyone stoop so low?
- Which sexual position produces the ugliest children? Ask your mother.
- Why do they give Viagra to old men in nursing homes? So they don't roll out of bed.
- A man walks into a zoo, and all it has is a single dog. It was a shitzu.
Two things you should know. First, this is a British publication, so there are some spelling differences from what Americans are accustomed to. And some of the humor depends on knowledge of British celebrities, sports teams, culture, and so on. The second thing is that there could have been better quality control when the original book was scanned. There are frequent systematic misspellings of the sort produced by scanning.
If you like tasteless humor--and deep inside we all do just a little--it is worth giving this book a quick look. I don't recommend purchasing it or reading it all of the way through. Small doses are best.
