One of the many ways that I enjoy bonding with my grandkids is through laughter, so I am always looking for new jokes or videos that will make them smile! (If you subscribe to my newsletter, you also know that I find the cheesier the joke, the better.)
Another excellent way to laugh together is through clean yet humorous stories, like these 10 that will tickle your funny bones and have you both laughing until your stomachs hurt (or make you roll your eyes, he he)!
1. Hide and Seek
Mr. and Mrs. Brown had two sons, one named Mind Your Own Business and the other named Trouble.
One day the two boys decided to play hide and seek. Trouble hid while Mind Your Own Business counted to one hundred. Mind Your Own Business began looking for his brother behind garbage cans and bushes. Then he started looking in and under cars until a police officer approached him.
“What are you doing?” asked the officer.
“Playing a game,” the boy replied.
“What is your name?” the officer questioned.
“Mind Your Own Business!”
Furious, the policeman inquired, “Are you looking for trouble?”
The boy replied, “Yes, I am!”
2. The Deep Hole
Two guys are walking through the woods one day when they stumble across a big deep hole.
The first guy peers into it and says, “Wow! That looks deep.”
The second guy says, “It sure does. Let’s throw in a few pebbles to see how deep it is. We’ll be able to tell the depth by how long it is before we hear the noise of the pebbles landing.”
They pick up a few pebbles and throw them in and wait. They don’t hear anything.
The first guy says, “Wow, that is deep! Let’s throw one of these great big rocks down there. That has to make a noise.”
So they pick up a couple of football-sized rocks, toss them into the hole, and wait. Again, there is no sound.
They look at each other in amazement. Then the first guy says, “Hey, over here in the weeds, there’s a railroad tie. Help me carry it over. When we toss it in, it’s gotta make a noise!”
The two men drag the heavy tie to the hole and throw it in. Once again, not a sound comes from the hole.
Suddenly, a goat begins rushing toward them out of the nearby woods. It quickly passes the men, running as fast as its legs carry it. It leaps in the air and into the hole.
The two men are astonished by what they’ve just seen and look at each other.
Then, out of the woods comes a farmer who asks the men, “Have either of you seen my goat?”
The first guy says, “You bet we did! Craziest thing I ever saw. It came running like crazy and just jumped into this hole and disappeared!”
“Impossible,” says the farmer, “That couldn’t have been my goat. My goat was chained to a railroad tie!”
3. Bug Soup
A boy asks his father, “Daddy, are bugs good to eat?”
“That’s disgusting. Don’t talk about things like that over dinner!” the dad scolds.
After dinner the dad asks, “Now, son, what did you want to ask me?”
“Oh, nothing,” the boy says. “There was a bug in your soup, but now it’s gone.”
I was in the library once when a man asked for some ham and cheese.
The librarian politely told him that he was in a library.
The man apologized and whispered to the librarian, “Can I please have some ham and cheese?”
5. The Policeman and the Penguins
A man was driving down the road when a policeman stopped him. The officer looked in the back of the man’s truck and said, “Why are these penguins in your truck?”
The man replied, “These are my penguins. They belong to me.”
“You need to take them to the zoo,” the policeman said.
The next day, the officer saw the same guy driving down the road. He pulled him over again. He saw the penguins were still in the truck but wearing sunglasses this time. “I thought I told you to take these penguins to the zoo!” the officer said.
“I did,” the man replied. “And today, I’m taking them to the beach.”
6. The Haunted House
I went to a haunted house. It was near the forest, and a local guide warned me that I might find some animals there.
Sure enough, there was a panda.
When I offered it some food, I was shocked as it suddenly started talking.
It turned out that it was a ghost panda that only ate bam-booooo!
7. The Mummy
A group of historians gathered for a party in Cairo after discovering a new mummy.
The mummy, on display at the party hall, suddenly woke up.
Seeing the historians alarmed, the mummy said he just wanted to listen to music, adding, “Please don’t play jazz because my trom-bones are in terrible shape. Could someone please put on some wrap music?”
8. The Skeleton
There is a skeleton in our neighborhood who always knows that something terrible might happen way before it happens.
He has become quite famous, and when a TV crew interviewed him about the reason behind this ability, the skeleton shared that he could feel the bad vibes in his bones.
9. The Genie in the Cave
Once during an adventure, a farmer named Bryan Clay stumbled upon a cave and found a magic lamp.
After rubbing the lamp, a genie appeared and asked him what his wish was.
The farmer told him that he wished he were very rich.
The genie said okay and asked him, “Alright, Mr. Very Rich Clay, what is your second wish?”
10. Chess Cat
I was visiting my cousin’s house when I saw him playing chess with his cat.
I said that it had to be the most intelligent cat ever.
My cousin replied, “Absolutely not! She has lost all her matches!”
Okay, how many of these made you laugh, and how many made you groan? Either way, I hope that you enjoy sharing these 10 silly stories with your grandkids – I sure did!
