Joke 713

6 Mar
Viv decided to test my claim that you can find jokes about anything on the internet and asked me to find jokes about the word orange.
Apologies for the weird formatting – I gave up after an hour.
We’ll start with one my kids used t0 tell when they were small – it was the first joke that came up:
Knock Knock
Who’s there?
Banana who?
Knock Knock
Who’s there?
Banana who?
Knock Knock
Who’s there?
Banana who?
Knock Knock
Who’s there?
Orange who?
Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?
Next comes one that took me a moment because of the foreign currency:
A woman was shopping at a produce stand in her neighborhood. She approached the vendor and asked, “How much are these oranges?”
“Two for a quarter,” answered the vendor.
“How much is just one?” she asked.
“Fifteen cents,” answered the vendor.
“I’ll take the other one,” said the woman.
Now for some bad ones, followed by some really bad ones:
Why did the orange stop rolling down the hill?
It ran out of juice.
Why was the guy fired from the orange juice factory?
He couldn’t concentrate.
What can a whole orange do that half an orange can never do?
Look round. 
Knock Knock
Who’s there ?
Orange who?
Orange you even going to open the door?

What did the chick say when his mother produced a citrus fruit instead of an egg?

Look at the orange mama laid.

What did the apple say to the orange?

Nothing.  Apples don’t talk.


What’s orange and sounds like a parrot?

A carrot.


And last but not least…the cartoon strip called Rhymes With Orange:

    An orange walks into a bar and orders a juice.
    The barman says “Are you taking the pith?”

    Loved the orange jokes, even though I’d heard some of the knock-knock ones before when I was a kid. They were good ones.

    I wrote a gag about an orange. But you need the cartoon to go with it! Victorian boy says to dad: when I said I wanted an orange for Christmas I meant a mobile phone.

    Orange mama laid. Really, Tess? Must you stoop so low?

    That’s a lot of work for oranges but very cute.


  15. Musings March 7, 2013 at 08:06 #

    Yup… some were pretty bad, but they all made me smile and laugh.

    You missed this one:

    There were an orange and a carrot walking down the street and they were best friends. Out of nowhere a car came and hit the carrot, so the orange rushed him to the hospital. Eventually the doctor came into the waiting room and he told the orange, “I’ve got good news and bad news.” The orange asked for the good news first, and so the doctor replied, “Well your friend is going to live, but he’s going to be a vegetable for the rest of his life!”

    This took me waaaaay back to the knock Knock days of yore.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
