65 posts

Here are some jokes and funny stories about life (and death). I am sure you can identify with some of the situations, and I have always wondered just how many of these jokes are based on true stories as well.

This is quite a growing collection of funny stories about life in general, with over 60 jokes in this category at the last count. We hope you enjoy them.

We cover everything here, from birth to growing older, to death and funerals. There is a bit of something for everyone if you want to put it that way.

Middle Age Spread

Middle age spread, or quite simply putting on a few extra pounds once you reach your 30’s or 40’s is something that I think most of us worry about. I know it’s something that I have worried about, having always been overweight. Turning 30 didn’t do me any favours, and […]

Sweaters

My mother once gave me two sweaters that she had knitted  for my birthday. The next time we visited her, I made sure to wear one of them. As we entered her home, instead of the expected smile, she said, “What’s the matter? You didn’t like the other one?” 60 […]
