Here's a joke about an elderly man who is fishing in a big puddle in front of a pub that will get you giggling.


One rainy day, an old man was standing near a big puddle in front of a pub. He was holding a rod and a string. A few people walked past him and, even though they were curious, they didn't say anything.

However, a gentleman saw the old man and wondered what he was doing there. He decided to approach him.

"What are you doing?" he asked. The old man looked at him and replied, "Fishing."

The gentleman laughed in his mind. He wasn't sure if the old man was joking or serious. Just a few seconds later, he decided to invite him to drink at the bar and get him out of the rain.

The old man immediately accepted his invitation. A bartender approached them when they walked in, and they ordered for a drink. As they were sipping their cups of whiskey, the gentleman asked the old man, "Tell me, sir, how many have you caught?"

"You're the eighth one today," the old man replied.


If you roared with laughter, here's an additional joke that will absolutely fill your heart with joy.


Three fishermen were fishing when they came upon a mermaid. The mermaid then offered them one wish each.

The first fisherman said: "Double my I.Q." So the mermaid did it, and incredibly, he began discussing Shakespeare and reciting Edgar Allan Poe's poems.

Then the second fisherman said: "Triple my I.Q." And sure enough, the mermaid did it. Astoundingly, he began doing math problems he didn't know existed.

The third fisherman was very fascinated. He then asked the mermaid to quadruple his I.Q. And the mermaid asked: "Are you sure about this? It will change your whole life!"

The fisherman said, "yes," so the mermaid transformed him into a lady.

That mermeid definitely knew one thing or two! Want to laugh some more? Check out this story of a wife who taught her lazy husband a lesson for refusing to help her.
