I have a good reason for posting these jokes – all will be revealed later…

The jokes come from a site called suite101. Here’s their blurb:

These are common opera jokes that have been passed on from generation to generation. Some are actually true, especially the last joke on the list.

How many tenors does it take to change a light bulb?

  • None – he thinks it’s the accompanist’s job.

How many tenors does it take to change a light bulb?

  • Six. One to do it, and five to say, “It’s too high for him.”

How many tenors does it take to change a light bulb?

  • Four: One to change the bulb and three to complain that they could have done it if they had the high notes.

What does it mean when a tenor drools out of both sides of his mouth?

  • The stage is level.

What’s the musical definition of a half-step?

  • Two tenors singing in unison.

How do you put a twinkle in a tenor’s eye?

  • Shine a flashlight in his ear.

How can you tell when a tenor is out of tune?

  • His lips are moving.

What’s the difference between a lawn mower and a tenor?

  • You can tune the lawn mower.

There were two old men sitting on a park bench talking to each other when one of them asked, “Can I sing you a song?”

The other man replied, “Sure, but only if can you sing tenor?”

The first man asked, “What is tenor?”

The other man replied, “Ten or eleven miles away!” – (Karah Richardson- Age 9)

How many tenor jokes are there?

  • Only one, the rest are all true.

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.
