Sometimes our CANA meetings can be "dry," as there is not always a lot of humor in good government issues.  Therefore, to counter balance some of the humor-less discussions that we have, we have created  a "jokes" page.    We hope to post things that will amuse, but  not offend, and will keep the humor clean. 

If you want to submit a joke for us to post that meets the above guidelines, please write. To submit a joke, click here.

The String

A String walked into a bar and said to the bartender, "Hi, may I have a glass of Vodka?"

And the bartender said, "No. Sorry, we don't serve Strings here." and instead of making a scene, the String left the bar and went around the corner. When he was sure that he was out of view of the bartender, he tied himself in a knot and ruffled up his top and bottom and returned to the bar.

He went up to the bartender and once again asked the bartender for a glass of Vodka and the bartender asked "Aren't you the string that just came in here?" and the String answered "Nope, afraid not!" (a frayed knot)

Airline Safety

While cruising at 40,000 feet, the airplane shuddered and Mr. Benson looked out the window. "Good lord!" he screamed, "one of the engines just blew up!"

Other passengers left their seats and came running over; suddenly the aircraft was rocked by a second blast as yet another engine exploded on the other side.

The passengers were in a panic now, and even the stewardesses couldn't maintain order. Just then, standing tall and smiling confidently, the pilot strode from the cockpit and assured everyone that there was nothing to worry about.

His words and his demeanor seemed to make most of the passengers feel better, and they sat down as the pilot calmly walked to the door of the aircraft. There, he grabbed several packages from under the seats and began handing them to the flight attendants.

Each crew member attached the package to their backs.

"Say," spoke up an alert passenger, "aren't those parachutes?"

The pilot said they were. The passenger went on, "But I thought you said there was nothing to worry about?"

"There isn't," replied the pilot as a third engine exploded. "We're going to get help."


Jumping Off of Buildings

There are three drunk guys on the Empire State building. One guy says to the others, "You know if you time it right, you can jump off the building and bounce right back up." So the other guys say, "Yeah right, let's see."

So the first guy goes to the edge, jumps off, and bounces right back up. One of the other guys says, "Hey cool, let me try." So he jumps off and he dies.

Two guys left on the top of the building and the other guy says, "Superman, you're really cruel when you're drunk."

The Jets

A guy walks into a bar with a dachshund under his arm. The dog is wearing a Jets jersey,helmet and is holding Jets pom poms.

The bartender says,"Hey! No pets allowed in here! You'll have to leave!"

The man begs, "Look I am desperate. We're both big fans, my TV is broken, and this is the only place we can see the game!"

After securing a promise that the dog will behave,and warning him that if there is any trouble they will be thrown out,the bartender relents and allows them to stay in the bar and watch the game.

The game begins with the Jets receiving a kickoff. They march downfield stop at the 30,and kick a field goal.

With that the dog jumps up on the bar,and begins walking up and down the bar giving everyone a high-five.

The bartender says,"Wow that is the most amazing thing I've ever seen!What does the dog do if they score a touchdown?"

"I don't know," replies the owner, "I've only had him for four years."

take you both up for a ride, if you can stay quiet for the entire ride and
not say ONE word, I won't charge you, but just one word and it's ten

They agree and up they go.... the pilot does all kinds of twists and
turns, rolls and dives, but not a word is heard, he does it one more time, still
nothing... so he lands.

He turns to Stumpy as they come to a stop and says " By golly, I did
everything I could think of to get you to holler out, but you didn't."

And Stumpy replies " Well, I was gonna say something when Martha fell
out...but ten dollahs is ten dollahs!
