Almost done with the work week? Here are a few jokes to get you through those last remaining hours.


Murphy and Jill applied for the same engineering position at a New York firm. Both applicants, having the same qualifications, were asked by the manager to take a test. Upon completion of the test both only missed one of the questions. The manager then had a conversation with Murphy.

Manager: “Thank you for your interest, but we’ve decided to give Jill the job.”

Murphy: “And why would you do that? You said we both got nine questions correct.”

Manager: “We have made our decision not on the correct number, but on the question you missed.”

Murphy: “How would one incorrect answer be better than the other?”

​Manager: “Simple. On question #5 Jane put down, ‘I don’t know.’ You put down, ‘Neither do I.’”


A shopkeeper was dismayed when a brand new business, much like his own, opened up next door and erected a huge sign which read ‘BEST DEALS’.

He was then horrified when another competitor opened up, this time on his right, and announced its arrival with an even larger sign reading ‘LOWEST PRICES’.

The shopkeeper panicked, until he got an idea. He put the biggest sign of all over his own shop. It read: ‘MAIN ENTRANCE’.


Henry was on his morning walk when he bumped into his friend Paul.

Henry: “Hey Paul, why do you look so dejected today?”

Paul: “Oh Henry, I’m in trouble. I need cash for the business and I have NO IDEA where to get it from!!”

Henry: “Oh, I’m sure glad to hear that. I was afraid you might think you could borrow it from me!”
