Here's my favorite joke


the over-done repeating gag

Funny thing is, you're the one making it over-done.

I have a gun. It's really powerful. Especially against living things.

This is a puzzle of sorts so I hope you enjoy.

You are in a room.
The room contains 3 light switches(currently in the OFF position) and 1 closed door.
The door leads to a long hallway which then opens into a room with 3 lightbulbs, each corresponding to a lightswith from the previous room.
You are only allowed to open the door once; it closes after you pass through.
You must find out which light corresponds with which switch.
There is no time limit.

Note:
This is a logic puzzle. There are absolutely no ‘tricks’. So it's not a matter of propping the door somehow or anything like that.


Answer

You turn two of the switches on and wait for 5 minutes. After the time has passed, you turn one of the switches off then head to the room. The light that is on will correspond to the switch in the on position, the one that is off and cool to the touch corresponds to the switch that you never turned on and the one that is off and still warm to the touch would be the last one you turned on then off.

easy huh? =D
Screw the money! I have RULES!

Very good. I wish I had thought of that answer, it's so obvious. But I missed it (sad face using keyboard strokes)

You don't?

Or you use the piano to ram through the door and escape…

If I could get out, I'd just eat and drink at home.

But, since this is a silly riddle, I'll just drink from the springs in the couch, eat the dates off the calendar, and use the keys from the piano to unlock the door and escape. ;)

Heres a story my sister told me: So there's a guy driving in his car through the country and he hits a rabbit. He stops and gets out to see if he's accidently killed it, only to find that he has. This guy likes animals so he's really upset that he killed this rabbit… later this blonde lady pulls up in her car and asks, “Is everything OK? Can I help?”
the guy says “No, I don't think so. I just killed this rabbit.”
“Oh!” the blonde replies, “I can help with that!”
So she gets a spray can from her car an sprays it on the rabbit. The rabbit gets up, waves its paw, hops off turns around and waves again and continues hopping off.
“What was in that can?” the guy asks
The blond shows him the can and the label says: “Hair Spray, restores life to dead hare, adds permanent wave.”

I have a joke called the Pensioners Day Out.

What you do is select some random old person sounding names (I usually use Mildred, Maud, Frank and Bill) and then you tell a story about them, starting with one pensioner and adding more on as you go along. Nothing exciting is meant to happen during the story, just ramble on and on and on about them. If you do it right (try pretending you're building up to something exciting, or make it sound like you're near the end) and get a good amount of names in, you can keep going for days.

The joke is that there is no punchline and you've just wasted the listeners time by forcing him to listen to your ‘joke’.
Hey buddy, you should be a Russian Cosmonaut, and here's why.

My mom does that. But not with jokes – with stories. Real stories. Stories that probably had points when she began them but pretty soon we've taken so many detours into other stories about people in side stories to that story that we never return, and often the only ending is an interruption, like a phone call or Mom gets distracted by something. (If on the phone, I pretend I have something cooking that needs my attention, so I can hang up.)

I said that one on the first page.

It's still my favorite, though.
