“A Few Funny Stories” by Joan Y. Edwards

I am in search of funny short stories to brighten your day and mine.  I hope you’ll share stories that tickle your funny bone in the comments area. I’ll copy and paste them below so that everyone can enjoy them. You and I need humor to lighten our day!


Wrong email address:

A couple going on vacation but his wife was on a business trip so he went to the destination first and his wife would meet him the next day.

When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick email.

Unfortunately, when typing her address, he typed an incorrect letter or two  and his note went by mistake to an elderly preacher’s wife whose husband had passed away only the day before.

When the grieving widow checked her email, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead faint.

At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:

Dearest Wife,
Just got checked in. Everything prepared for your arrival tomorrow.

P.S. Sure is hot down here.


Two men are hiking through the woods when one of them cries out, “Snake! Run!” His companion laughs at him. “Oh, relax. It’s only a baby,” he says. “Don’t you hear the rattle?” —Steve Smith, found on  Reader’s Digest


An exercise for people who are out of shape: Begin with a five-pound potato bag in each hand. Extend your arms straight out from your sides, hold them there for a full minute, and then relax. After a few weeks, move up to ten-pound potato bags. Then try 50-pound potato bags, and eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-pound potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. Once you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag. —Beverly Gross, found on  Reader’s Digest (

Stories from Readers

Linda Andersen Gutheil shared, “I don’t have any jokes to share, but I will share an experience that I can look back on and laugh. I recall attending an in-service training for school counselors and our supervisor wrote the web address for our public school system on a large white board. I had never seen a web address before and I didn’t know what www. stood for. Hard to believe that wasn’t so very long ago. At least my supervisor didn’t have to write the address on a chalkboard. That would really date the experience. Lol!

Maybe others can laugh at their experiences, too.”

My cousin, Roy Vestal, suggested Mikey’s Funnies – a free site with a daily, clean email he thinks we would enjoy:

Bob Rich shared a bathroom story of his that may bring a chuckle:
