36 Funny Tall People Jokes

Updated on January 14, 2016

Short people say that God only lets people grow until they're perfect. Therefore, short people just didn't take as long as others to reach perfection (ahem, tall people).

Although you tall people may disagree with this assertion and crack a joke about short people in response, short people jokes are just too common and overused!

For a long time, short people have been the target of jokes because of their height, but let’s face it, tall people; the tall life isn’t all hunky dory, is it?

You are always hitting your head on things, stubbing those long toes of yours, and forget ever finding shoes that fit you in a normal store!

Every shirt you buy shrinks into a crop top after the first wash, and you're the reason high waters pants got their name!

So laugh it up, tall people, because we (short people) are ready to make a comeback.

To keep making fun of tall people, since they deserve it, here is a list of 36 jokes at the expense of our giraffe-like friends.

A Couple More From the Comments

  • A big benefit of tall people is that you don't need to come downstairs to shake their hand. You can do it right from the balcony.

It's Just a Joke!

See, tall people jokes are just as funny as short people jokes, if not more! If you are a short person telling these jokes, take note of all of the tall people just kinda awkwardly standing there, perhaps letting out a nervous laugh to try to fit in, even though they can’t fit into their own clothes.

Just let it soak in, and embrace the moment since for once you are not the target of cruel height jokes!

I’m sure you’ve thoroughly enjoyed laughing at these jokes, especially if you are a short person. Not only are they great anytime you want to tell a joke but if you keep some on hand for a tall person/short person joke dual, the short person will have definitely have a leg to stand on.

        I constantly get called giraffe everyday (Also slenderman and other hurtful names like the green giant.)I don't think short people or just regular height people realize the hardships and "jokes" aka body shaming toward tall people that happens multiple times a day. If you are going to make jokes about tall people at least make them funny and witty and not dumb because these just sound like body shaming statements. Also, what tall person hurt your feelings to make you think all tall people are bad, dumb, awkward, mean people?

        Wth is wrong with you people. You guys dont have a sense of humor!! I was practically laughing my whole way through reading this and the person named 'Tall Guy' that is right below my comment, stuff the moon in your ass. This is very useful and i am going to write it down, if you people think that this is not good, then look in the mirror, oh wait.... it must have cracked.

        Anyways, thanks for the joke tips! Sure am gonna use them.

        sorry but these are not jokes and please never tell any of your friends cos you would be the cringe master after this... i was looking for tall jokes to roast myself and some friends but this is sad... these are not jokes they are insecure statements from a not so tall person. the point of a joke is to make fun of some one in a witty yet funny manner not saying that their clothes never fit... in that case short people go shopping in the kids section... lol if you gave one good joke even insulting i would laugh my ass off but this was just sad to read and honestly a waste of time. please do not be the person that tells these jokes to other people since your own reputation is at stake here.

        Sure jokes short and tall are all in good fun but implying that tall people are dumb and stupid is crossing the line. Since when is tall associated with automatically being stupid?.., wow Height, short or tall does not determine IQ. Calling anyone stupid is just a cruel insult and doesn't say much about the person saying it.

        With a tall person at home, you won't need a ladder. You also don't need to come downstairs and can shake hands with a tall person while standing at your balcony. You don't need to turn your back if you want to avoid a tall person, you can walk straight just in front of him without ever being caught. The game 'hide and seek " is not for tall guys. With a tall friend, you can swim any far in the river for you will be at his hand when in danger.

        My friend, I am a short man and have some very good friends who are tall. We enjoy making fun of one another without ever being offended. A person who can laugh loud lives a happy life. Jokes are meant for enriching our craze for life. I think, I have added a little bit more fun to your humorous list.
