A Couple of Jokes

Unavoidable Divorce

Two girls went out to grab a coffee and catch up. “ I’ve heard you got married,” the first one said. “Yes, I married a really nice guy but he was allergic to cats. It was awful! As soon as he came anywhere near my cat he would get a terrible rash. It was impossible for them to live together.” the other girl replied. “So, what did you do?” “I had no choice – I had to divorce!”

Pavlov’s Dog and Schrodinger’s Cat

A man enters a library and asks for a book about Pavlov’s dog and Schrodinger’s cat. The librarian says, “ It rings a bell, but I am not sure whether it’s there or not!”


A woman goes to the movie theater and notices a cat sitting next to her. “You are a cat, aren’t you?” the woman asked. “Yes, I am.” the cat replied. “What are you doing here? Why are you watching the movie?” the astonished women continued. “I liked the book.” the cat replied.

Art Collector

An art collector was walking down the street when he noticed a cat lapping milk from a saucer in front of a local shelter. Immediately, he recognized that the saucer was very old and valuable. He casually entered the shelter and offered to adopt the cat for $20.

“That cat is not for sale.” the manager replied. The collector said, “Please, I really need a cat to catch mice around my house. I saw this cat chasing a mouse, so I’ll give you $100 for her.” “Okay.” the manager agreed and handed over the cat. The collector continued, “Hey, I’ll give you another $5 if you could throw in that old saucer. The cat’s obviously used to it, so she’ll adapt quicker to a new home.” The manager said: “I am sorry man, but that’s my lucky saucer. The sales increased tenfold since I have started using it!”

Green Canary
