I recently went for a finance interview at a smaller shop. The interviewer asked me to tell him a joke. I blanked.
I ended up saying:
"A man walks into library and approaches the librarian. The librarian smiles and asks "how can I help you today?"
The man says "Can I get a tunafish sandwich on white?"
Bewildered the librarian says "Sir this is library...".
the man replies (In a Whisper). "Sorry (this where I almost died in the interview of nervousness) can I get a tunafish sandwich on white?"

I got a weak smile from the two guys.

Any good jokes that can be used in these types of situations?

    What was the best part of the Playboy Enterprises IPO?

    ... The pitch book.

    Mama bear and papa bear are getting a divorce. The judge asks baby bear, "who do you want to live with?"

    Baby bear says, " I don't want to live with mama bear. She beats me"

    Judge says, "Okay, so you want to live with papa bear?"

    Baby bear says, "No, he beats me too!"

    Judge (frustrated at this point), "Well then, who do you want to live with?"

    Baby bear, "I want to live with the Chicago Bears! They never beat anybody"

    A couple who have been married for a while are in their bedroom. The wife looks in the mirror, sighs, and says, "I feel fat and ugly...give me a compliment". The husband looks her up and down and says, "You've got perfect vision."

    It is near the Christmas break of the school year. The students have turned in all their work and there is really nothing more to do. All the children are restless and the teacher decides to have an early
    dismissal.

    Teacher: "Whoever answers the questions I ask, first and correctly can leave early today."

    Little Johnny says to himself "Good, I want to get outta here. I'm smart and will answer anything she throws at me."

    Teacher: "Who said 'Four Score and Seven Years Ago'?"

    Before Johnny can open his mouth, Susie says, "Abraham Lincoln."

    Teacher: "That's right Susie, you can go home."

    Johnny is mad that Susie answered the question first.

    Teacher: "Who said 'I Have a Dream'?"

    Before Johnny can open his mouth, Mary says, "Martin Luther King."

    Teacher: "That's right Mary, you can go."

    Johnny is even madder than before.

    Teacher: "Who said 'Ask not, what your country can do for you'?"

    Before Johnny can open his mouth, Nancy says, "John F. Kennedy."

    Teacher: "That's right Nancy, you may also leave."

    Johnny is boiling mad that he has not been able to answer to any of the questions.

    When the teacher turns her back Johnny says, "I wish these bitches would keep their mouths shut!"

    The teacher turns around: "NOW WHO SAID THAT?"

    Johnny: "TIGER WOODS. CAN I GO NOW?"

    Not sure if you'll be able to use this one for an interview (I'd recommend against it):

    A teacher, lawyer, and priest are in a burning school auditorium. The teacher says, " We need to save the children before the auditorium collapses". The lawyer responds, "Screw the children." The priest looks at the lawyer and asks, "Do we have the time?".

    I was at a pub outside Dublin and was the last one there, clearly upset because I had just broken up with my girlfriend of 3 years. The bartender could tell I was upset, and said, "Come on a walk with me, lad."

    So we walked outside and he turned me around to look at the Pub. He says, "You see dat Pub? I been runnin dat Pub for fifteen years. Day after day, pourin shots, providin people like you drinks. But they don't call me Shamus the barkeep. No."

    Puzzled, I didn't really know what to make of it, but we kept walking. We passed by an old well that was clearly out of use. He pointed to it and said, "You see dat Well? I dug dat well with me bare hands chwelve years ago. It finally went salt but before dat it provided dis town with all the water dey used. But they don't call me Shamus the welldigger."

    We kept walking and passed a long stone wall. "Do you see this wall? I built dis wall 8 years ago to keep wolves away from the sheep. Two miles long, dis wall. Stone by stone, brick by brick I slaved on it...but dey don't call me Shamus the Stonesman."

    Then, he turned away, bent his head toward the ground, and muttered just loud enough for me to hear,

    "But you fuck one goat..."

    A buddy of mine sent this to me, I thought it was pretty good:

    A teacher asks her class, "If there are 5 birds sitting on a fence and you shoot one of them, how many will be left?"

    She calls on little Johnny to answer. He replies, "There are none left - they all fly away with the first gun shot."

    The teacher replies, "The correct answer is 4, but I like your thinking."

    Then, Little Johnny says "I have a question for YOU. There are three women sitting on a bench having ice cream: One is delicately licking the sides of the triple scoop of ice cream. The second is gobbling down the top and sucking the cone. The third is biting off the top of the ice cream. Which one is married?"

    The teacher, blushing a great deal, replied "Well I suppose the one thats gobbled down the top and sucked the cone."

    To which Little Johnny replied, "The correct answer is the one with the wedding ring on, but I like your thinking."

    who let the wet towels in? brighten up kids, it's called humor.
    you're just taking up space with your over-conservatism. if you don't enjoy the humor don't laugh. hell, if you really have to say something, PM me. i may not agree, but i'll listen.

    you actually remind me of this mother who came to a meeting at my highschool before we went on a field trip. when they asked if anybody had questions, the thing that seemed to bother her the most was if they'd show us violent films on the bus, like the matrix. needless to say we all laughed at him for weeks after that.
    you're just like her. loosen up a little.

    I love Mitch Hedberg;

    I think Pringles original intention was to make tennis balls... but on the day the rubber was supposed to show up a truckload of potatoes came. Pringles is a laid-back company, so they just said, "Fuck it, cut em up!"

    I had a parrot. The parrot talked, but it did not say "I'm hungry," so it died.

    I get the Reese's candy bar, if you read that name Reese's that's an apostrophe s. Reese-apostrophe-s, on the end of that name. That means the candy bar is his, I didn't know that! Next time you're eating a Reese's candy bar and a guy name Reese comes by and says, "Let me have that," you'd better hand it over. "I'm sorry, Reese, I didn't think I'd ever run into you! You're a fuckin' bully, man! Let me at least have a piece!"

    I saw a lady on T.V. She was born without arms. Literally, she was born with her hands attached to her shoulders... and that was sad, but then they said, "Lola does not know the meaning of the word 'can't.'" And that to me was kinda worse... in a way... ya know? Not only does she not have arms, but she doesn't understand simple contractions. It's very simple, Lola, you just take two words, you put them together, then you take out the middle letter, you put a comma in there and you raise it up!

    Here's a thought for sweat shop owners: Air Conditioning. Problem solved.

    Two jokes (a bit dirty)

    (not work appropriate)-> Three men go to a strip club a German an Englishman and a Dutch guy.
    the stripper dances for the German guy first , he grabs a handful of cash (about 300$)and puts it in her panties
    then the stripper dances for the Englishman he writes her a cheque for 2000$ and puts it in her panties
    Finally the Dutch guy pulls out his credit card swipes it between her butt cheeks and yells "charge whatever you like"!

    (kinda appropriate)-> The prime ministers of England , France and Greece are on a plane but it crashes somewhere in Russia. The three politicians walk for miles and miles to find shelter... after a very long walk they see a red light somewhere in the distance and think they are saved .. getting closer they realize it is a brothel. They go inside and the Eglish PM asks the madam "Could I make a phone call please to get picked up from here?" the madam responds (insert Russian accent) "Fine but for 3 miiiiillliiion pounds" The PM has no choice and agrees. Next comes the French PM with the same question and the madam responds "alllllrrright then for 6 miiiilliiion euro" Having no choice he too agrees. Finally comes the Greek guy (insert Greek accent) "Can I make phone call too madam? how much?" and the madam responds: "for you 1 euro!" the other PMs are freaking out asking "Why does the Greek PM pay 1 while you charge us millions??" and the madam answers "Eh! Between brothels we have friendly prices!"

    A panda is out one night, and he's approached by a lady of the night. She comes up to him and says, "Hey, why don't we go back to my place for a little while, have a little fun?"

    The panda says, "Alright, sure thing." So they head back to the aforementioned prostitutes quarters, and she proceeds to make Mr. Panda a great dinner. They sit down, eat, drink, have a great time, and afterwards they go back to the hooker's bedroom and fool around for a little while.

    After their done, the prostitute says to the Panda, "Alright, so that was fun, how about $400?"

    The Panda, confused, goes, "Wait, $400, I thought we were just having fun?"

    The prostitute replies, "No silly, I'm a prostitute."

    The Panda, being a Panda, replies, "Sorry, I'm a Panda, I don't really know what that is."

    So, the prostitute grabs a dictionary, turns to Prostitute and shows the Panda the definition:

    Prostitute: One who does favors of a sexual nature in exchange for cash payments.

    The Panda, surprised, says, "Oh, okay, well in that case, lets go look up Panda in the dictionary..." They turn to Panda, and the definition reads....

    Panda: Eats shoots and leaves.

    Any one of these.

    5 Minute Management Course

    Lesson 1:

    A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings.

    The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs.

    When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor.

    Before she says a word, Bob says, 'I'll give you $800 to drop that towel.'

    After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob, after a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves.

    The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs.

    When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, 'Who was that?'

    'It was Bob the next door neighbor,' she replies.

    'Great,' the husband says, 'did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?'

    Moral of the story:

    If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.

    Lesson 2:

    A priest offered a Nun a lift.

    She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg.

    The priest nearly had an accident.

    After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg.

    The nun said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'

    The priest removed his hand But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again.
    The nun once again said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'

    The priest apologized 'Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.'

    Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily
    And went on her way.

    On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, 'Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.'

    Moral of the story:
    If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.

    Lesson 3:

    A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.

    They rub it and a Genie comes out.
    The Genie says, 'I'll give each of you just one wish..'
    'Me first! Me first!' says the admin clerk. 'I want to be in the Bahamas , driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.'
    Puff! She's gone.

    'Me next! Me next!' says the sales rep. 'I want to be in Hawaii , relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.'

    Puff! He's gone.

    'OK, you're up,' the Genie says to the manager.
    The manager says, 'I want those two back in the office after
    Lunch.'

    Moral of the story:
    Always let your boss have the first say.

    Lesson 4

    An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing.

    A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, 'Can I also sit like you and do nothing?'
    The eagle answered: 'Sure, why not.'

    So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

    Moral of the story:
    To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

    Lesson 5

    A turkey was chatting with a bull.

    'I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree' sighed the turkey, 'but I haven't got the energy.'
    'Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?' replied the bull. They're packed with nutrients.'

    The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.

    The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.

    Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree.

    He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.

    Moral of the story:
    Bull shit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there..

    Lesson 6

    A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field.

    While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him.

    As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was.

    The dung was actually thawing him out!

    He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.

    A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.

    Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

    Morals of the story:
    (1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.

    (2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your
    friend.

    R. Scott Morris:
    Often a question like "tell me a joke" is meant to throw you off or see how you handle new situations. Just keep a joke on hand that you can tell confidently.

    Don' t worry about optimizing for the funniest one, and just relax!

    how many of these are appropriate to use in an interview? would interviewers be okay with you telling jokes about women (assuming your interviewer is a male)? would they be okay with sexual jokes?

    thanks for any help.

    Tough question...kinda(?).

    Typically no, in fact, I bet more people have been fired for telling an off color joke then have been hired because they left someone in stitches (comedians aside). Be careful. It's all going to come down to how the interview is going and what the person is like. The problem is, you never know that person's background...you never know if the guy who is interviewing you has a sister that was victimized or something, so he might get offend by a joke poking fun at females. Your best bet is to not say anything distasteful.

    Regards
