Today we’re kicking back for some laughs and taking a look at a handful of funny jokes from around the web that most of you will enjoy. It’s been a while since we’ve compiled a bunch of jokes, so let the geeky humor continue!

Joke #1 – Researching on the Internet

Joke #5 – Fix it yourself…

When my printer’s type began to grow faint, I called a local repair shop where a friendly man informed me that, probably, the printer only needed to be cleaned. Because the store charged $50 for such cleanings, he told me, I might be better off reading the printer’s manual and trying the job myself.

Pleasantly surprised by his candor, I asked, “Does your boss know that you discourage business?”

“Actually it’s my boss’s idea,” the employee replied sheepishly. “We usually make more money on repairs if we let people try to fix things themselves first.”


Joke #6 – Did you hear…

Did you hear about the Coder that got stuck in his shower for a week? The instructions on his shampoo said: Lather, rinse, repeat.

Joke #9 – Four engineers in the car…

Four men rode in a car: a mechanical engineer, an electrical engineer, a chemical engineer, and a computer engineer.

The car stalled out.

The mechanical engineer said, “It must be the pistons; let’s repair them and be on our way.”

The electrical engineer said, “It has to be the spark plugs; we’ll replace them and be ready to roll in no time at all.”

The chemical engineer said. “No, it’s got to be bad gas; we’ll flush the system and be on our way.”

They turned to the computer engineer. “What do you think we should do?” they asked.

The computer engineer shrugged and said, “Let’s get out of the car, close the doors, then get back in and try restarting it.”
