    A man asks his daughter if she thinks he would make a good mountain guide. What does she say?

    "Sure," she says, "I've seen you say STAY to Fido."

    I don't really get this one. What is Fido?

    What does the daughter say? "Sure pa"

    Fido is a cliche dog name.

    Stay is something one says to dogs.

    If the father is guiding mountains, well they are really only going to end up doing one thing, stay in place. She knows this and she knows he is capable of giving them this good guidance.

    Thanks. It doesn't quite work. But the idea is almost funny as opposed to the joke which isn't almost funny.

    but hey, i thought that it was because they're "grown up" jokes, which seems not the case, or you're not actually 50 years old..

    Hey,
    I think this joke works.


    I am a pretty funny person in 'real life'. But I have never been able to make jokes. But here, for the first time, I think I actually made a joke people might tell each other. It no knee slapper, but I'll take what I can get.

    And she says...'' but Daddy, wouldn't that be incest?" or the cleaner version....." Shouldn't I wait for someone more my own age and preferably not related!"

    O.K Kremmen, this one has an answer and believe you'll deliver that to us...
    What do you call the Kremmen family hungover to the point of quivering?

    I'll wait a day or two and give clues if necessary.

    I'll have a crack at the hedgehog one but it's not jumping out at me.

    The Angli-CAN ride a motorbike. But the hedgehog CAN'T write a letter. He is not 'edghogcated enough

    Is it a traffic 'as 'ard?


    Isn't that joke about a traffic light, not a parking meter?
