Zingers: Misc.

by on 22/07/14 at 8:07 pm



Off and on, for about six years, I wrote “snippets” for a different humor website. These were also easy one or two line jokes with a simple set up, followed by a punch line. Some people call these zingers or and others call them different names.

I have been gathering them together and trying to group them by subject. Here are the ones on multiple subjects (religion, business, science, sex, etc). Look for more my previously posted collections on entertainment, politics and sports.

If you enjoy these, fine. If you are insulted or offended by some of these, great! Remember that all humor doesn’t work for all people (and that some jokes never work at all).


I just don’t get it #1. What’s with this whole “Doctor’s Without Boarders” thing? I just don’t get it. Why aren’t they allowed to rent out their spare rooms?

I just don’t get it #2. I still don’t get it. What’s with this “lather rinse repeat” for directions for shampoo. What do I repeat, the lather or the rinse? And why does saying it out loud have anything to do with washing my hair?

I just don’t get it #3.I just don’t get it. My dog licks his butt. He licks his crotch. He eats “tootsie rolls” out of the cat’s litter box. The dog, however, refuses to eat broccoli. Does it really taste worse than shit?

I just don’t get it #4. I just don’t get it when it comes to food. If Mexican food is supposed to come from Mexico, and Japanese Food comes from Japan, and Italian Food comes from Italy…. Then does dog food come from dogs?

I just don’t get it, #5. I just don’t get it. If another name for a penis is a “one eyed trouser snake”…. Does that mean I need to get mine contact lenses, or was it just born blind?

Jimmy Cracked Corn…. and I still don’t care.
