Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously.

Growing up we used to live next to a great family whose patriarch was of Polish descent. As luck would have it, his wife had blonde hair.

This comes into play the two of them used to tell jokes all the time. For the guy, he would tell Polish jokes as he handed our father a beer. The two would sit on their respective back porches, laughing and solving the world’s problems. His blonde wife was a horrible story and joke teller, but she absolutely loved “blonde jokes.” She couldn’t tell them well, but she would laugh at the punch line like there was no tomorrow. Even our father, who was bald as a billiard ball, loved to tell bald jokes.

Together, the three of them taught us a great life’s lesson: never take yourself too seriously. Laugh at yourself once in awhile.

We seem to have gotten away from that these days and harmless jokes are frowned upon.

But to us, a good joke can often apply to anyone. It doesn’t matter the group, the sex, the ethnicity, etc. Plug in any group and run with it.

With that in mind, we offer this joke to brighten your Monday and your return to work:

A GUY GOES INTO A BAR IN NEW YORK WHERE ALL THE BARTENDERS ARE ROBOTS:

THE GUY SITS DOWN AT THE BAR AND THE ROBOT ASKS: “WHAT WILL YOU HAVE?
THE GUY REPLIES, “WHISKEY.”
THE ROBOT BRINGS BACK HIS DRINK AND ASKS, “WHAT’S YOUR IQ?”
THE GUY SAYS, “168”
The robot talks about physics, space exploration and medical technology.

AFTER THE GUY LEAVES, HE PAUSES AT THE STREET CORNER AND THINKS ABOUT WHAT HE JUST ENCOUNTERED,

AND THE MORE HE THINKS ABOUT IT THE MORE CURIOUS HE GETS, SO HE DECIDES TO GO BACK.

THE ROBOT ASKS, “WHAT’S YOUR DRINK?”
THE GUY ANSWERS, “WHISKEY.”
THE ROBOT RETURNS WITH HIS DRINK AND ASKS, “WHAT’S YOUR IQ?”
THIS TIME THE MAN REPLIES, “100.”
THE ROBOT TALKS ABOUT NASCAR, BUDWEISER, THE FLORIDA GATORS AND ALL-STAR WRESTLING.

THE MAN FINISHES HIS DRINK, LEAVES, BUT IS SO INTERESTED IN THIS “EXPERIMENT” THAT HE DECIDES HE’LL TRY AGAIN.

HE ENTERS THE BAR AND, AS USUAL, THE ROBOT ASKS HIM WHAT HE WANTS TO DRINK.
THE MAN REPLIES, “WHISKEY.”
THE ROBOT BRINGS THE DRINK AND ASKS, “WHAT’S YOUR IQ?”
THIS TIME THE MAN ANSWERS, “50.”
THE ROBOT LEANS IN REAL CLOSE AND SLOWLY ASKS,
“SO, ARE YOU PEOPLE STILL UNHAPPY THAT HILLARY LOST?”

Plug in any group you want through the entire joke.

It’s still funny.
