Joke 784

16 May
  • It’s time to get new shoes when you stand on a coin and can tell if it’s heads or tails.

    Funny shoes (aka)

  • What kind of shoes do spies wear?   Sneakers.
  • What happens if you eat yeast and shoe polish?   Every morning you’ll rise and shine!
  • A man with two left feet popped into the shoe shop and asked to try on a pair of Flip Flips.
  • “I stand corrected!” Said the man in the orthopaedic shoes.

And finally…one I’ve posted before but I love it, so here it is again:

A man came across a ticket in an old coat from ‘Smith & Sons Shoe Repairs’, a local shoe repair shop.  The date stamped on the ticket showed it was over eleven years old.  He showed his wife and they tried to remember which of them might have forgotten to pick up a pair of shoes over a decade ago.

‘Do you think the shoes will still be in the shop?’ he asked.

‘Not very likely,’ his wife said.

‘It’s worth a try,’ he said, and went downstairs, got into the car, and drove to the store.  With a straight face, he handed the ticket to the man behind the counter.

With a face just as straight, the man said, ‘Just a minute I’ll have to look for these.’  He disappeared into a dark corner at the back of the shop.  Two minutes later, the man called out, ‘Here they are!’

‘Really?’ the owner of the shoes called back. ‘That’s terrific! Who would have thought they’d still be here after all this time.’

The man came back to the counter, empty-handed. ‘They’ll be ready Thursday,’ he said.

    This was funny but serious too. My cobbler takes a stiff deposit because apparently people do forget their old shoes 🙂

    Funny about that ‘Ready Thursday’ thing – I kept having it happen to me the last time I had shoes repaired on a visit to UK! I wondered if I’d ever see them again …

    These jokes are certainly laced with humor. Only a heel wouldn’t laugh at them.

    Apparently your funny bone is in your toe. Dianne


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.
