You Will Read These Money Jokes AND LIKE THEM!

If you’ve been following me on Twitter this week – and you really should be, Sexy Pants – you’ll notice I’ve reverted back to my high school days of telling jokes again.

Some of these gems have included, “Why do the Irish keep their money in banks? (Because it’s Dublin!)” and “Why do accountants make good lovers? (Because they’re great with figures!)”.

Now some of you have enjoyed these guys, while others were heard sighing halfway across the interwebs. So today’s post is dedicated to you, Mr. No Humor Sighers. YOU WILL KEEP READING THESE MONEY JOKES UNTIL YOU LIKE THEM, Damnit! It’s Friday! ;)

Please to enjoy, my favorite finance jokes:

A man being mugged by two thugs was putting up a tremendous fight. The thugs finally subdued him and promptly took his wallet.Upon finding only two dollars in the wallet, the surprised thug said

“Why did you put up such a fight?’

To which the man replied, “I was afraid you would find the $200 hidden in my shoe!”

A yuppie was opening the door of his BMW when a car came along and hit the door, ripping it off completely. When the police arrived on scene, the yuppie complained bitterly about the damage to his car.

“Officer, look what they’ve done to my Bimmer!”

“You yuppies are so materialistic, it’s ridiculous” retorted the officer. “You’re so worried about your stupid BMW, you didn’t even notice that your left arm was ripped off.”

“Oh, my!” screamed the yuppie, noticing the bloody stump where his arm used to be. “My Rolex!”

A kindergarten teacher spent a few minutes each morning teaching a new word to her class. She would tell the class the word and its meaning, then ask them to come up with a few sentences that included the word for the day.

One day, the teacher said that the word for the day was “frugal.” She explained that frugal had to do with saving, and a frugal person is one who saves. She then asked the class to come up with a sentence for the word.

The class seemed kind of stumped, and sat there in silence for a few seconds until one little girl raised her hand. Instead of just a sentence, she came up with a little story:

“There once was a princess who was stuck in a tall tower. There was a spell on all of the doors, so she couldn’t get out. One day, she heard a young prince who was walking by and singing. The princess called out of the tower, ‘Frugal me! Frugal me!’ So, the prince frugaled her and they lived happily ever after.”

George had responded to a call from his attorney, insisting that they meet at once. He arrived at his lawyer’s firm, and was ushered into his office.

“Do you want the bad news first or the terrible news?” the lawyer asked.

“Well, if those are my choices, I guess I’ll take the bad news first.”

“Your wife found a picture worth a half-million dollars.”

“That’s the bad news?” George was stunned.  “If you call that bad, I can’t wait to hear the terrible news.”

“The terrible news is that it’s of you and your secretary.”

A frightened investor goes to his financial planner and asks if he’s at all worried about the volatility of the markets these days. The planner replies that he sure does! In fact, he says that he sleeps like a baby.

The frightened investor was amazed! “Really? Even with all the fluctuations?”

“Yup! I sleep for a couple of hours, and then I wake up and I cry for a couple of hours.”

A preacher gets up one Sunday and announced to his congregation:

“I have good news and bad news…”

“The good news is, we have enough money to pay for our new building program!”

“The bad news is, it’s still out there in your pockets!”

Once upon a time, there was a wise man. The wise man wanted a horse so that traveling would be easier for him.  He went to a farmer and offered to buy his only horse. The farmer agreed, and the wise man paid $100 in advance and said that he would take the horse the next day.

The next day when he returned, the farmer told him that the horse had died, and that he had already spent the $100 that the wise man had given him. The wise man thought for a second, and then asked if he could take the dead horse which the farmer happily agreed to.

After a few days, the wise man returned to the village. The farmer came up to him and asked what he had done with the dead horse? The wise man said, “I sold the horse for $500!”  The farmer was amazed. He asked, “How is this possible?”

The wise man explained, “I went to a nearby fair. There, I set up a small stand and offered the horse through a lottery. The ticket was only $5. One hundred and two people participated, and in the end, I gave the horse to the winner.”

“Didn’t anyone complain?” the farmer asked. “Yes, the winner complained about this.” “So what did you do?” “I gave him double his money back!”

Late one night a mugger wearing a ski mask jumped into the path of a well-dressed man and stuck a gun in his ribs.

“Give me your money,” he demanded.

Indignant, the affluent man replied, “You can’t do this – I’m a US Congressman!”

“In that case,” replied the robber, “Give me MY money!”

A beautiful woman enters a bar and sits next to a lawyer.

“Listen honey,” she says, “For $50, I’ll do absolutely anything you want.”

The lawyer looks around, pulls fifty dollars from his wallet and says, “Paint my house.”

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

After 40 years of hard work, a man retired with $5,000,000.00 which he had gained through courage, diligence, initiative, skill, devotion to duty, thrift, efficiency, shrewd investment.

And the death of an uncle who left him $4,999,999.50.

Did you hear about the $3,000,000 Maryland State Lottery?
The winner gets $3 a year for a million years.

An FBI agent was interviewing a bank teller after the bank had been robbed 3 times by the same bandit:

“Did you notice anything special about the man?” asks the agent.

“Yes,” replied the teller. “He was better dressed each time.”

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

A businessman was confused about a bill he had received, so he asked his secretary for some mathematical help.

“If I were to give you $20,000, minus 14%, how much would you take off?” he asked her.

The secretary replied, “Everything but my earrings.”

And what’s some joke telling w/out a little Chuck Norris?

“If you have five dollars and Chuck Norris has five dollars, Chuck Norris has more money than you.”

 ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

“Apple pays Chuck Norris 99 cents every time he listens to a song.”

 ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

“In an act of great philanthropy, Chuck made a generous donation to the American Cancer Society. He donated 6,000 dead bodies for scientific research.”

 ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

“When Chuck Norris calls 1-900 numbers, he doesn’t get charged. He holds up the phone and money falls out.”

 ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

I’ll leave you with one last image… (quite literally)

    Thanks for the morning laugh. Here’s a frugal joke that fits right in with your renewed focus on water consumption:

    “Ever wonder about those people who spend $2.00 apiece on those little bottles of Evian water? Try spelling Evian backwards: NAIVE. “

    Abby made this one up last year for the financial jokes contest. I still can’t believe she didn’t win:
    Q. Why is a budget like sunscreen at a nude beach?
    A. If you don’t cover the essentials, you’re gonna get burned.

    1. J. Money July 28, 2014 at 11:29 AM

  32. Donna Freedman April 26, 2017 at 3:14 PM

    Budgeting is like sunscreen at a nudist camp: If you don’t cover the basics regularly, you’re gonna get burned.

  33. Donna Freedman April 26, 2017 at 3:17 PM

    Oh, dang: I just noticed that this was an older post, and re-posted Abby’s sunscreen joke. Whoops.

    1. J. Money April 27, 2017 at 9:49 AM
