Friday fun: Friday pun Edited

Bridget Community Manager Dec 07, 2017

While I'm still quite new to the Atlassian team, my coworkers are already more than familiar with my puntastic/cringe-worthy sense of humor. So, for this Friday fun post, I'm giving it a rest (for once) and calling on this community to provide the most cringe worth dad (or mom) joke they can muster!

Just kidding about the giving-it-a-rest part. Here's mine: 

A mushroom walks into a bar and orders a beer. The bartender says, "I'm sorry, but we don't serve mushrooms here." 

The mushroom says, "Why?! I'm a fungi!"

Why do Germans fear hotdogs with cheese? 
Because, it is a Wurst-Käse scenario.

@Thomas Schlegel: you just made me think of one of my favourite puns of all time that makes my German friends really groan and roll their eyes:

If they're complaining about something negative in life I say 'Oh my, that is just das Wurst!" 

 

I be all like: "Ha ha!"

Don't think this is a pun, but it's a Christmas joke that made me laugh (I have to at the moment, I live in the UK, and it's either laughing at how stupid it's got, or crying):

Why was the Prime Minister Theresa May sacked as nativity manager?  She couldn't run a stable government.

But one of my long-term go-to bad puns is:

Did you know that you can cool yourself to -273.15˚C and still be 0k?

In the German cut, this Shirley-pun was translated that way:

- Sie können ja nicht ernst sein  (but you can't be serious)

- Ja, und nennen Sie mich nicht Ernst  (yes, and don't call me Ernst - Ernst is also a German first name)

But this joke is not half as famous as it seems to be in the English-speaking world :-)

It's really dumb but my favourite pun comes from a joke:

I need to go to the dentist because the time is Tooth Hurty ! ! ! (14:30) Hahaha.
Terrible.

The receptionist at my dentist never gives me this time slot because she spent several years having to listen to me say over the phone..... 
"I will never forget when it's time to come see you guys.... it'll be Tooth Hurty"

@Bridget: you & your blog just inspired me to write potentially the dumbest pun in all of Atlassian history - and in my Summit Session Call paper no less!

"Speaking at Summit would be the 'pinnacle' of showing my love for Atlassian and sharing its best practices."
