36 Funny Tall People Jokes


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.
