What a weird name for a donut, or doughnut depending on how eloquent you're feeling today. Bismark? Wasn't there a ship or something called the Bismarck? I suppose there's no relation.

I get it, but I don't get it. Argh! :P


And we should probably get along with finding the punchline to that joke. It's quite obviously going to be a play on words, due to their being absolutely no relation whatsoever between a jelly do(ugh)nut and one's eye color. Other than that, I really can't fathom what the punchline should be.

The only thing I thought of was "Bismarks make the eyes go blonder" but that would be more for hair than eyes. And the punned phrase doesn't work too well either.

Now that I eat these for lunch, I'm filled by different things is the best I can come up with for this one.

And the only reason my joke was difficult to understand is that I told it wrong, so there :P

Er, you're on the right track. Not 'Bismark' and not 'blonde', though.

Quick interjection for a rule proposal:

There must be at least a 24-hour wait for a tag.

I know I didn't make this thread, but it seems to be accepted already, and it allows for all visitors and users to try it out, given that they visit once a day.

You mean a secret tag/hint? Sorry. I didn't realize this was an implied rule. I'll do better next time. :blush

"So I'm old."

I got nothing. But, I wanted to respond to Tscott, and felt bad without submitting a punchline. Which sucks...but anyway.

Tscott- It wasn't what you did, I was just suggesting it for a way to give more people a chance to spread humor. And by tag I meant passing the torch, giving the next person a go, saying "Your turn now." That sorta thing. Sorry for any confusion.

The joke is because there's a cliche about having your father shot in Westerns, another name for father is "Pa", which rhymes with "paw".

Game on,

I'll go.

There's a police lineup. There are ten or so (the number is not important) suspected criminals lined up, and a witness is watching through a one-way glass. The policemen in the room asks everybody, one by one, to say "Give me all your money or I'll shoot!" so as to aid the witness. One of the people in the lineup says.....

Man, I neglected this thread for ages.

An interior designer is out on a job. He is discussing what colour theme the owner wants, when he glances over to the window, excuses himself, opens it and shouts "Green side up!". He closes the window, excuses himself again, and continues.

The owner and the designer go to the next room, an entry hall, where the discussion goes on for a few minutes when the interior designer excuses himself again, goes back to the first room, opens the window and shouts "Green side up!" He closes the window and returns to the bemused owner, who leads him on to the next room.

A few minutes in, the interior designer excuses himself again, and returns to the first room (the owner following), opens the window and shouts "GREEN SIDE UP!" The owner, thoroughly confused, asks what the heck he's doing.

"I'm sorry, ma'am, but..."

A passenger flight is leaving from a busy airport. The passengers board the plane and sit down, and then see two men in pilot's uniform, with white sticks and guide dogs, heading down the isle towards the cockpit. The passengers begin to laugh, and then stop when they realise it isn't a joke. The plane begins to move down the runway at increasing speed, and after a while the end of the runway becomes visible as a vertical plunge down into a lake. The passengers begin to scream. The plane lifts off just in time to avoid dropping into the water.
One pilot says to the other:

Red: the interior designer has a crew of blondes/Irish/insert-whatever-equivalent laying turf. He is instructing them on which side is up.

Get it now?

I'll accept that. A snappier way of saying it is:
