I'm not really good with jokes. When my friends and I have awkward silences, one of us always shouts, 'Fat penguin!' When everyone looks surprised and confused, the shouter says, 'I just needed something to break the ice!'

This is a crime story. Five friends lived together: Mad, Brain, Fool, Somebody and Nobody. One day, Somebody killed Nobody. Brain was in the bathroom. Mad called police. Mad: 'Is this the police station?' Police: 'Yes, what's the matter, sir?' Mad: 'Somebody killed Nobody.' Police: 'Are you mad?' Mad: 'Yes sir, I am Mad'. Police: 'Don't you have a brain?' Mad: 'Brain is in the bathroom.' Police: 'You fool.' Mad: 'No, Fool is reading this joke.'

A brunette goes to the doctor. As she touches each part of her body with her finger, she says, 'Doctor, it hurts everywhere. My leg hurts, my arm hurts, my neck hurts, and even my head hurts!' The doctor asks, 'Were you ever a blonde?' 'Yes, I was,' she replies. 'Why do you ask?' The doctor answers, 'Because your finger is broken!'

Tom's teacher was annoyed with Tom's poor performance in class. She decided to test him. She asked Tom to make a sentence using the words 'detail', 'defence' and 'dekat' (Indonesian word meaning 'around'). After a lot of thinking, Tom answered: 'Dekat jumped over defence taking detail with it!'

I was never really great at telling jokes, but here goes:

A teenage girl goes into a hair salon and says, 'I'd like a haircut like Christina Aguilera.'

So the hairdresser shaves off all her hair.

The girl screams, 'That doesn't look like Christina Aguilera!'

'Oops, sorry, Mickey Mouse clubbers all look the same to me!'
