Dad Jokes: The Pharmacist and the Cyanide

13 01 2011

"Get it!?"

I love dad jokes. Meaning jokes that your dad tells you over Thanksgiving dinner. Usually they’re clean but with a touch of risque. Here’s a good dad joke:

A nice, calm and respectable lady went into the pharmacy, walked up to the pharmacist, looked straight into his eyes,and said, “I would like to buy some cyanide.”

The pharmacist asked, “Why in the world do you need cyanide?”

The lady replied, “I need it to poison my husband.”

The pharmacist’s eyes got big and he exclaimed, “Lord have mercy! I can’t give you cyanide to kill your husband. That’s against the law! I’ll lose my license! They’ll throw both of us in jail! All kinds of bad things will happen. Absolutely not! You CANNOT have any cyanide!”

The lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband in bed with the pharmacist’s wife.

The pharmacist looked at the picture and replied, “Well now, that’s different. You didn’t tell me you had a prescription.”

“I have the best eyesight in the town.”

“So do I,” replied the second liar.

The first liar pointed to the distance. “For example, do you see that ant there on top of that mountain?”

The second liar craned his neck and squinted his eyes. “Do you mean the one with his eyes opened, or the one with his eyes closed?”
