Marriage funnies

"Ever since we got married, my wife has tried to change me.  She got me to stop drinking; stop smoking; and staying out to all hours of the night.  She taught me how to dress well; enjoy fine arts; gourmet food; classical music, and even how to invest in the stock market," said the man.

"Sounds like you might be a little bitter because she changed you so drastically," remarked his friend.

"I'm not bitter.  Now, that I'm so improved...she just isn't good enough for me."

Psychiatrist's Confessional

A group of psychiatrists were attending a convention.  Four of them got together after to chat about the convention.  One said to the other three, "people are always coming to us with their guilt and fears...but we have no one we can go to whan we have problems."

Then one said, "Since we are all professionals, why don't we take some time to hear each out out?"  The other three agreed.  So, the first psyychiatrist said, "I have an incredible urge to kill my patients."

The second psychiatrist said, "I love expensive things, so I cheat my patients out of their money, whenever I can, so I can buy the things I want."

The third followed with, "I'm involved with selling drugs and I often get my patients to sell them for me."

The fourth psychiatrist then confessed, "I know how much I'm not supposed to, but no matter how hard I try...I can't keep a secret."

A New Deputy

The local sheriff, was looking for a deputy, so Tommy...who, was not exactly the sharpest nail in the buched, went to the interview for the job. 

"Okay," the sheriff drawled, "Tommy, what is 1 and 1?"

"11," he replied.  The sheriff thought to himself, 'that's not what I meant,' but he's right."  "What two days of the week start with the letter 't'?" 

"Today and tomorrow."  The sheriff was again surprised that Tommy supplied the correct answers, that he had never thought of himself. 

"Now, Tommy...listen carefully," said the sheriff.  "Who killed Abraham Lincoln?" 

Tommy looked a little surprised himself, and then thought really hard for a minute and finally admitted, "I don't know."  So, Tommy wondered over to the pool hall, where his pals were, wanting to hear the results of the interview. 

"The interview went well," he told his buddies.  And, then Tommy finished, "It's only my first day on the job, and I'm already working on a murder case."

Hello Jerry,
Very nice to read jokes that are not dirty. Thank you for this collection.

Do you know Isaac Asimov's short story about the unexpected origin and purpose of all jokes? The story is called Jokester. It can be found in several anthologies and maybe on the Internet.
