The truth is that you can learn any jokes that you want… but here are 10 that you can tell in mixed company and should help you build Rapport. Rapport is 40% of the way to a Sale. Have fun.
1. “Make sure you convey your message clearly”
A couple of New Jersey hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head.
The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: “My friend is dead! What can I do?”
The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: “Just take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.”
There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy’s voice comes back on the line. He says: “OK, now what?”
2.”Men vs Women…Women win”
A Girl was in the hospital, her parents sat waiting in the waiting room…finally the doctor comes out. Both parents jump up, and the whole room watches. "Is it serious?" the mom asked. "She needs a brain transplant" the doctor replies. Both parents stand silent for a moment…then the father asks, "How much is it gonna cost?"
The brain? Girl's are $450 dollars, and boy's are $5,800 dollars"
All the men in the room seem to chuckle to themselves, then finally the father brings himself to ask, "Why are the boys more expensive than the girl's?" The doctor looks at him and replies, "We have to mark the girl's down because they're used." Not to mention that a man’s brain is very rare and hard to find.
3. What do you do with a Son-In- Law?
A very successful businessman had a meeting with his new son-in- law. I welcome you into the family,” said the man. “To show you how much we care for you I am making you a 50-50 partner in my business.
All you have to do is go to the factory every day and learn the operation.” The son-in- law interrupted. “I hate factories. I can’t stand the noise.”
“I see.” replied the father-in- law, “Well, then you’ll work in the office and take charge of some of the operations.” “I hate office work,” said the son-in- law. “I can’t stand being stuck behind a desk.”
“Wait a minute,” said the father-in- law. “I just made you half owner of a money-making industry, but you don’t like factories, and won’t work in an office. What am I going to do with you?” “Easy,” said the son-in- law. “Buy me out.”
4. “Computer Joke”
A customer comes into a computer store. “I’m looking for a mystery adventure game with lots of graphics. You know, something really challenging.”
After a while the clerk replied, “have you tried Windows 2010?”
5. “Lazy Workers”
“How long have you been working here?” one employee asked to another.
“Ever since the boss threatened to fire me.”
6. “Lazy Bosses”
“This little computer,” said the sales clerk, “will do half your job for you.”
The senior manager studying the machine made his decision; “Fine, I’ll take two.”
7. “Lawyer Joke”
A man visiting a graveyard saw a tombstone that read: “Here lies John Smith, a lawyer and an honest man.”
“How about that!” he exclaimed. “They’ve got three people buried in one grave.”
8. “Even the best plans sometimes go wrong”
A man came up with the best plan to guard his privacy from the neighbors. He got a guard dog and was very proud of his guard dog, he would leave it to roam free in the garden to send the message to his neighbors to keep away. One day a neighbor woman knocked at his door. "Is that your big dog outside?" Wondering how she had got past him he said "Yes why?" She said I'm sorry but my dog just killed him!"
"What??" Roared the man "What kind of dog have you got??" "A little Chihuahua" Replied the woman. "A little Chihuahua??? How could that little thing kill my big fine guard dog?"
"I think it got stuck in his throat!" Replied the woman.
9. “Government Jobs and Three Wishes”;
A Government Employee sits in his office and out of boredom, decides to see what's in his old filing cabinet. He pokes through the contents and comes across an old brass lamp. "This will look nice on my mantelpiece," he decides, and takes it home with him. While polishing the lamp, a genie appears and grants him three wishes.
"I wish for an ice cold diet Pepsi right now!"
POOF! He gets his Pepsi and drinks it.
Now that he can think more clearly, he states his second wish.
"I wish to be on an island where it is beautiful, sunny and I am the King."
POOF! Suddenly he is on a beautiful sunny island and he is the King… He tells the genie his third and last wish:
"I wish I'd never have to work ever again."
POOF! He's back in his government office.
