Joke 964

12 Nov

All right, thou yeasty dog-hearted foot-lickers, time for some intellectual jokes!

Two atoms were walking down the street.  One atom says to the other, “I’ve lost an electron!”

The second atom asks, “Are you sure?”

The first atom replies, “I’m positive.”


Q: What is the difference between an etymologist and an entomologist?
A: An etymologist would know the difference


This one isn’t really a joke but I like it so much, I have to share it.  Do me a favour and insult me in the Shakespearean style in the comments.  And go heavy on the alliteration, if you like: I rather fancy myself as a pribbling plume-plucked pumpion.


To construct a Shakespearean insult, combine one word from each of the three columns below, and preface it with ‘Thou’: 

Column 1. |. Column 2. |. Column 3

beslubbering. |. beef-witted. |. barnacle

loggerheaded. |. half-faced. |. hedge-pig 
mammering. |. hedge-born. |. hugger-mugger 
mewling. |. idle-headed. |. lewdster 
pribbling. |. ill-nurtured. |. maggot-pie

qualling. |. motley-minded. |. measle 
rank. |. onion-eyed. |. minnow 
reeky. |. plume-plucked. |. miscreant 
roguish. |. pottle-deep. |. moldwarp 
ruttish. |. pox-marked. |. mumble-news 
surly. |. rump-fed. |. puttock

      Thank you 🙂

      The source for jokes is always cited; just check the bottom of the post.

      But how I find them is: 1) Think of a topic. 2) Google it. 🙂

    Thou beslubbering knotty-pated flap-dragon of a puttock: Thy unmuzzled malt-worms are claybrained.

    Now may I have a Malteser?

    Wow, that Shakespeare fella certainly knew how to tear someone down to size! It’s a shame he never got to flex his skills in a modern rap battle.

    You loggerheaded elf-skinnned bum-bailey! 🙂

    You milk-livered, liver-bitten old haggard.


  5. colonialist November 12, 2013 at 12:31 #

    Thou grogging slop-spittled puddlesluggard!
    One doesn’t even need the words: simply adopt the style and invent your own!


  6. SchmidleysScribbling November 12, 2013 at 18:12 #

    How about a yeasty, dog-hearted miscreant?


  7. SchmidleysScribbling November 12, 2013 at 18:17 #

    Or a “rank hedge-born harpy,” perhaps?

    No time for comments you villainous. |. tardy-gaited. |. strumpet! Back to NaNoWriMo for me!

    I just can’t do it. Not even in Shakespeare-eze.

    What brilliant lunacy doth thou offer me, my fustilarian friend! Verily thou art a gleeking, pottle-deep moldwarp! And yet, what is in a name? That which we call a Malteser by any other name would taste as sweet. So Tilly Bud, were she not a moldwarp call’d would retain that gleeking pottle-deep perfection she owns without that title.

    Now, if only I knew what I just called you…. I fear a plague is about to be cursed upon my house…

    I’ll leave it to Al!


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.
