18 Jokes for the Hall of Fame, November 9, 2023

If your dog is your best friend, that’s sad. You make your best friend beg for treats and micromanage what they eat. You have them sterilized so they can’t have their own family. If that’s not bad enough, you regularly take them out in public naked and restrained on a leash. You’re a bad friend. Get better by reading them these jokes, please.

Kathleen Madigan on Kids

“Kids? It’s like living with homeless people. They’re cute, but they just chase you around all day long going, ‘Can I have a dollar? I’m missing a shoe! I need a ride!’”

Alonzo Bodden on NASCAR

Dana Gould on Life

“It’s easy to go through life putting people down because they’re different from you, but no matter who you are or where you’re from, we all enter this world the same.
