Today’s #jokeoftheday is about an older woman who won big at the races.


After the races had ended one evening, a bookie began counting out the money that an older woman had won at the stakes.

After several minutes of counting out the bills, the curious bookie looked up from what he was doing and asked the woman how she managed to pick the winner correctly. The proud lady patted her hair into place as she answered:

“Really, I don’t know myself. I just stick a pin in the paper and, well, there it is.”

The bookie then took a deep breath before he said that while he couldn’t argue with her, he was still confused about how she managed to pick four winners the previous afternoon. At that question, the older lady replied:

“Oh. That was easy. I used a fork.”


Another joke tells the story of a mother who decided to pay her son a visit at his university. It is every parent’s joy and hope that their children not only started school but also ended up studying excellent courses at university

So, when this woman’s son got accepted at a top university in their country, she was beyond happy. The woman became even happier when her son told her he was excited to start all his new classes.

During the talk, the woman asked her son what languages he had decided to take, and he replied: “I have decided to take Pictish, mother.”

Confused, his mother asked: “Pictish? Why, Pictish?” Her son, hearing the bewilderment in her voice, responded, “Well, mother, that’s easy. Only five words of it remain.”



This joke is about a little boy who learned something new during Sunday school. At Sunday School, the teacher was teaching little children, including Little Johnny, about how God created everything, including human beings.

Although he had many questions, Little Johnny seemed intent on listening to the story about how Eve was made out of one of Adam’s ribs.

Later that week, his mother observed that he was lying in a way that hinted that he might be sick, so he asked him what the issue was. Quick to respond, Little Johnny said, “I have a pain in my side. I think I’m going to have a wife!”
