Jokes With Profound Meanings by Neurotika: 6:55am On Feb 04, 2018
1. A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, "This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you."
The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do you want, son?"
The boy takes the quarters and leaves.
"What did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never learns!"
Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream parlor.
"Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?"
The boy licked his cone and replied: "Because the day I take the dollar the game is over!" — Vinaya Patil

2. A boy and a man sit on a couch together. The boy says to the man, "Yeah, well, I didn’t believe in reincarnation when I
was your age either." — Akshat Anand

3. A man is flying in a hot-air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and
spots a man below. He lowers the balloon farther and shouts, "Excuse me! Can you tell me where I am?"
The man below says: "Yes, you're in a hot-air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field."
"You must be an engineer," says the balloonist.
"I am," replies the man. "How did you know?"
"Well," says the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct, but it's no use to anyone."
The man below says, "You must be in management."
"I am," replies the balloonist, "but how did
you know?"
"Well," says the man, "you don't know where
you are or where you're going, but you
expect me to be able to help. You're in the
same position you were before we met, but
now it's my fault." —Amori Adesque

4. A climber fell off a cliff, and, as he tumbled down, he caught hold of a small
"Help! Is there anybody up there?" he shouted.
A majestic voice boomed through the gorge:
"I will help you, my son, but first you must have faith in me."
"Yes, yes, I trust you!" cried the man.
"Let go of the branch," boomed the voice.
There was a long pause, and the man shouted up again, "Is there anybody else up there?" — Ahmet Kasan

5. An MIT linguistics professor was
lecturing his class the other day. "In English," he said, "a double negative forms a
positive. However, in some languages, such as Russian, a double negative remains a
negative. But there isn't a single language, not one, in which a double positive can
express a negative."
A voice from the back of the room said, "Yeah, right." —Sai Kishore K

6. An American businessman was at the
pier of a small coastal Mexican village when a
small boat with just one fisherman docked.
Inside the small boat were several large yellowfin tuna. The American complimented
the fisherman on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them. The fisherman replied that it only took a little while. The American then asked why didn't he stay out longer and catch more fish. The
fisherman said he had enough to support his
family's immediate needs.
The American then asked, "But what do you do with the rest of your time?"
The fisherman said, "I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take siesta with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my
amigos. I have a full and busy life, señor."
The American scoffed. "I am a Wharton MBA and could help you. You should spend more time fishing and with the proceeds, buy a
bigger boat. With the proceeds from the bigger boat you could buy several boats.
Eventually you would have a fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your catch to a middleman you would sell directly to the processor, eventually opening your own cannery. You would control the product, processing and distribution. You would need
to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to Mexico City, then L.A., and
eventually New York City, where you will run your expanding enterprise."
The fisherman asked, "But how long will this
all take?"
To which the American replied, "Fifteen or 20
"But what then?"
The American laughed and said, "That's the best part. When the time is right you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock
to the public and become very rich. You would make millions."
"Millions? Then what?"
The American said, "Then you would retire.
Move to a small coastal fishing village where
you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take siesta with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings where you could
sip wine and play your guitar with your friends." —Andrew Udell

7. A masochist asks a sadist, "Please hurt
"No," replies the sadist. —Arnon Mishkin

8. "Make me one with everything," says
the Buddhist to the tofu hot dog vendor.
Then, after getting his tofu hot dog, the Buddhist hands the vendor a $20 bill.
The vendor takes the money and begins helping the next customer.
The Buddhist looks puzzled and asks the vendor, "Where is my change?"
The vendor replies, "Change comes from within." —Liam Gorman

9. An engineer dies and reports to the pearly gates. St. Peter checks his dossier and says, "Ah, you're an engineer — you're
assigned to hell."
So the engineer reports to the gates of hell and is let in. Pretty soon, the engineer gets dissatisfied with the level of accommodations
and starts designing and building improvements.
After a while, they’ve got air-conditioning and flush toilets, escalators, elevators and so on ...
and the engineer is a pretty popular guy.
One day, the Arch angel of Heaven calls Satan on the telephone.
"So, how's it going down there in hell?" The Arch angel says.
"Hey, things are going great. We've got air-
conditioning and flush toilets and escalators.
There's no telling what our engineer is going to come up with next!" Satan says.
"What? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake — he should have never gotten down there. Send him back immediately!" Arch angel says.
"No way! I like having an engineer on the staff — I'm keeping him!" Satan says.
"Send him back up here or I'll sue!" Arch angel says.
Satan laughs uproariously and answers:
"Yeah, right. And just where are you going to get a lawyer?" — Sagar Shukla

10. A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A rabbit asked him, "Can I
also sit like you and do nothing all day long?"
The crow answered, "Sure, why not." So the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow and rested.
A fox jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very high up. — Saurav Maheshwary

11. A guy said to God, "God, is it true that to you a billion years is like a second?"
God said yes.
The guy said, "God, is it true that to you a billion dollars is like a penny?"
God said yes.
The guy said, "God, can I have a penny?"
God said, "Sure, just a second." —Mark DeBolt
