144 Gross Jokes

12x12Recently, I gave a presentation that contained 288 jokes. But most members of the audience were turned off, claiming it was two gross.

But one guy really liked it. “Your jokes are funny,” he said, “though I don’t think my wife would like your humor. How many off-color jokes do you know?”

“I have a collection of 144 gross jokes,” I told him.

“Wow!” he said. “How did you find the time to collect 20,736 jokes?”

Sorry. Just seems like 12/12 is a good day to be making such jokes.

The word dozen comes from the Old English word doziene, which comes from the Old French word dozaine, which is a derivative of the Latin word duodecim (duo = two, decim = ten).

Warning! Off-color joke approaching!

A man calls his friend and asks, “What has a two-inch penis and hangs down?”

“I dunno,” says his friend.

“A bat,” says the man. “Now, what has a twelve-inch penis and hangs up?”

“I dunno,” says the friend.

Dial tone…

The following is a list of my favorite things that come in groups of 12.

  • Signs of the Chinese Zodiac — what’s not to love with dragons, roosters, and pigs?
  • Angry Men — sure, it’s a little sexist with an all-male cast, but three of those males were Jack Klugman, Ed Begley and Henry Fonda, and it’s ranked #6 in the IMDB Top 250.
  • Donuts — mmm, donuts…
  • Eggs — can’t really have a list of dozens that doesn’t include eggs, right?
  • Inches in a Foot — how many inches in a nose?
  • Labours of Hercules — though I can’t decide which was the best, cleaning shit out of stables or stealing a belt from a woman.
  • Players on a Canadian Football Team — in the U.S., it’s 11 players on a 100-yard field; in Canada, it’s 12 players and a 110-yard field; the next country to don a football league must have 13 players on a 120-yard field, to follow the little known but never broken n + 1 players on a 10n-yard field edict.
  • Ounces in a Troy Pound — because, really, who needs Avoirdupois?
  • Function Keys on a PC Keyboard — F7 is the most-used function key on my laptop, since Shift-F7 lets me synonym search in Word.
  • Roses — red if you’re nice, black if you’re naughty.
  • Face Cards in a Deck — jacks, queens, and kings.
  • Keys on a Phone Keypad — yet only eight have letters associated with them… weird.
