Friday fun: Friday pun Edited

Bridget Sauer 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!"

What do you call a bear with no teeth? 

 

A gummy bear!

Hahahahahahaha! Good one Leslie. 

I wasn't able to make reservations at the library; they're completely booked.

A man walked into a bar.

He said "ow!"

lulz

Is this a pun, though?  It's a Dad joke.

@Bridget Sauer asked for dad jokes!

this is one, I don't understand as a non-native speaker... (you can explain it to me the next time, we meet)

Ah, now I got it... took some time ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I take a break from this week's Friday fun - my English is not good enough to pun ๐Ÿ˜ƒ 

But I am also busier than usual already with the Advent Calendar ๐ŸŽ„

I will help:

Q: What's a German's favorite number?

A: Nein!

Thomas Schlegel Community Champion Dec 07, 2017

๐Ÿ˜‚ - that's funny ๐Ÿ‘

Thomas Schlegel Community Champion Dec 07, 2017

Another German one:

No matter how kind you are,

German children will always be kinder.

And you said you didn't have time or skills to pun! ๐Ÿคฃ

Thomas Schlegel Community Champion Dec 07, 2017

Well, actually, I have time - sitting on my sofa and watching TV

I would ask what you're watching but maybe I'll save that for a future Friday fun question ๐Ÿ™ƒ

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

Thomas Schlegel Community Champion Dec 12, 2017

ouch, that hurts... :-)

Why do Swedish warships have barcodes on their side?

So when they return to port, they can Scandinavian (Scan-da-navy-in)!

yeah...yeah...?

The pun dog is my favorite.

Best one I've seen recently: The future, the present and the past walked into a bar. Things got a little tense.

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 -273.15หšC and still be 0k?

Thomas Schlegel Community Champion Dec 12, 2017

๐Ÿ˜„ - had to look twice at the spelling to understand, that's a good one ๐Ÿ‘

I just stumbled across a longer one which I think is brilliant:

 

I just asked Siri, "Surely it's not going to rain tomorrow?"

She said, "It will, and don't call me 'Shirley'"

I'd forgotten to take my 'phone off Airplane mode.

Hahahaha omg that might be my favorite so far. 

Thing is, I now want a 'phone where that is what Airplane mode really means!  I'd look forward to asking it for help with my drinking problem.

I wonder what it would have to say about Turkish prisons.

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

- Sie kรถnnen 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 :-)

  

Hahahaha!

What do you call cheese that doesn't belong to you?

moray

Nacho Cheese

("Not-your cheese")

I feel like the eel really makes this pun work. 

Wouldn't want to have a mist opportunity....

@Kimberly Deal (Columbus AUG), I love this with my whole heart.

GAW. SO CUTE.

Thinking of this as if it were a serious promotional video of Atlassian Bamboo. 

Erica Moss Community Manager Feb 01, 2018

Laughed out loud. ๐Ÿ˜†

So did I!

The most weird thing is that it worked! I was kind-of convinced of buying Bamboo by those arguments! :D

If I were a Bamboo Developer, I'd like to hear that song as a humorous approach to improving team's motivation from time to time. ^_^

May I get the Friday Funmaker badge for this? :P

Ignacio Pulgar Community Champion Feb 02, 2018
