  • Eye jokes thread

    My very recent loss to surgery of my left eye has prompted all sort of jokes and puns from colleagues and friends so how about adding some to this thread. Just keep them clean please.


    I'll start with a couple I remember from many years ago which were passed down to me by my father. You have my permission to groan!
    1. When my daughter presented my first grandson to me I asked what he and her husband had decided to call him.

      She replied "Isiah".


      That's an unusual name, I said. I suppose you named him after the Hebrew prophet in the Bible who foretold the coming of the Messiah?

      No she replied, we re not really that religious:

      He had a slight facial defect at birth which prompted our choice of names.

      One eye's higher than the other!
      .
      .
    2. So, I'm sitting in the waiting room of the prosthetic department of the local eye hospital as I'm about to be fitted with a replacement eye.

      An old guy sitting next to me senses I am a little nervous.

      " First time here? he asked.

      "Yep" I replied.

      "Don't worry, this is an easy thing to deal with and afterwards you can have some fun with a prosthetic eye and make a little money on the side"

      "What do you mean'" I said, somewhat perplexed.

      "Well, I often sit at a bar and for fun I bet whoever is sitting next to me that for 5 bucks I can show him/her that I can bite my left eye.

      "When the bet is accepted I flip out my prosthetic eye into my hand and pretend to bite it!"

      "Hey, that sounds cool" I said.:

      " But that's not all" the old guy replied. I then up the stakes by saying "I bet for 10 bucks I can now bite my good right eye"

      "Go for it !" is the usual reply.

      " I then take out my false teeth and bite the good eye!"

    They are bad.... The bar joke does remind me of an screen from the old John Wayne and Dean Martin movie Sons of Katie Elder. Dean pulled a stunt similar to that.

        When I was a lifeguard at Boy Scout camps (back in the last century), we had a kid who had lost an eye to a BB gun accident (yer gonna shoot an eye out with that! {nod to A Christmas Story}) and every so often, he would swim over to the lifeguard chair and tell us his eye had popped out and he couldn't find it. So, we would blow the whistle, empty the pool and the lifeguards would have to hit the bottom of the pool (he would never lose in the shallow end) to retrieve said glass orb.
        The kids would get a little grossed out, but it was just a common occurrence during the weeks he was at camp.

        Too early to leave, too late to call in.

            Quartz you are absolutely right about the need for a good blade and proper tuning of the saw. I thought the price was a lot cheaper than I expected. Only nine ornaments
