I actually can't remember how it got started yesterday, but a couple of us set out to think of as many clean jokes as we could. And it was waaaaaay harder than it should have been. I mean, not every joke has to be a dirty, off-color joke, right? And as we were about to give up on the conversation, I thought, why not take it to our Facebook page and see what happens?

Last I checked this morning, there were over 100 good clean jokes on our Facebook page. A few people bent the rules, and a few just had to make it political, but all in all, it was hilarious. As I was reading through the comments, I found myself groaning more than laughing.... in a good way. A lot of the jokes were sweet puns that were begrudgingly funny. Such as....

How many optometrists does it take to change a light bulb?
1 or 2? 1...or 2?

What do you call a guy with a rubber toe?

What do you call a bear with no teeth?
A gummy bear!

Why don't you ever see hippos hiding in trees?
Cause they're really good at it.

What happens when you play country music backwards?
Your wife returns.....your dog comes back to life.....and you get out of prison.

And if you have a minute to go through the whole thread, you'll be able to get a nice midday work chuckle. Lord knows, we could all use a few more of those. And it won't even matter if someone is looking over your shoulder because all of these jokes are safe for work. Look at us adulting!

Also, big shout-out to Q106.5 listeners Greg Boober, Jantha Henry, Sandra Towle, Todd Baker, and Paula Cyr for contributing the jokes you read above.
