Joke #1

What lies between a good recycler and a bad recycler?


So, it works whether you are in California or Washington—you can totally burn both states depending on where you are. I’m from Cali, but live in Seattle now…so I get the pleasure of both worlds. Yup, this joke is 100% me.

Joke #2

What are the differences between a good recycler and a bad recycler?

Good Recycler: You carefully separate your recyclables, cans, paper, and glass, before filling your recycle bins.

Bad Recycler: You give the recycle bins to the kids to use as toboggans.

Joke #3

Not That Kind of Recycling!

A woman returned home after a shopping trip, and was horrified to find her husband in bed with another, younger woman. Just as she was about to rip her husband a new one, he quickly explained the situation:

“You have to hear about how this happened. While driving home, I saw this young girl looking poor and tired, so I offered her a ride. Since she was hungry, I brought her home and fed her some of the leftovers in the refrigerator that you had forgotten about. Her shoes were worn out, so I gave her a pair of your shoes that you don’t wear because they went out of style. She got cold, so I gave her that sweater I got you for your birthday that you never wear because you don’t like the color. Her jeans were worn and full of holes, so I gave her a pair of yours that you don't fit into anymore. Then, as she was about to leave the house, she asked, ‘Is there anything else that your wife doesn't use anymore?’"

The man still can’t sit comfortably.

Joke #4

At a press conference, President George W. Bush announced that he is surprised at how quickly global warming is happening. Then one of his aides pulled him aside and explained that it was just springtime.

Joke #5

A woman called her husband during the day and asked him to pick up some organic vegetables for that night’s dinner on his way home.

The husband arrived at the store and began to search all over for organic vegetables before finally asking the produce guy where they were. The produce guy didn’t know what he was talking about, so the husband said: “These vegetables are for my wife. Have they been sprayed with poisonous chemicals?”

To which the produce guy replied, “No, sir, you will have to do that yourself.”
