Listen to the last news episode here!

Hi and welcome to the first mini JoyBinge episode, where we will talk about good things to think about and encourage us for this week. My name is Kimmy Mauldin and I am excited to bring you a little dose of joy in the off week between news episodes. Let’s binge on some joy!

As you probably know, the holidays are right around the corner. This is usually a pretty stressful time of year full of expectations, socializing, and missing those we love who aren’t around to celebrate with. While this can be a fun time, and I hope you are able to enjoy this season, it isn’t an easy time.

Earlier I recorded an episode about steps I’ve taken to make my life a bit easier to find moments of joy but as I was editing it, I realized that it sounded like a To Do list. Ummmm no thank you. We’ve got too many things on our To Do lists, why add big stuff like working out, finding a counselor or journaling or whatever to our overfilled schedule. So I thought instead that I would have my boyfriend John join me and we just tell the dumbest jokes we could find. Why not take a break for some really dumb humor?

Kimmy's Jokes:

  • John, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. It’s when people get Santa-mental!

  • Knock knock. Who's there? Mary. Mary who? Merry Christmas.

  • Q: Did you hear about the problem in Santa’s workshop this year? A: Everyone was so greedy, they were Elfish!

  • Q: Why didn't the skeleton go to the Christmas party? A: He had no-body to go with.

  • Q: What do you call a snowman in August? A: A puddle

  • Q: How do you get a tissue to dance? A: You put a boogie in it.

  • Q: What kind of ghost has the best hearing? A: The eeriest

  • Q: If athletes get athlete’s foot, what do elves get? A: Mistle-toes

  • Q: Why do seagulls fly over the sea? A: Because if they flew over the bay, they would be bagels.

  • Q: What kind of music do planets like? A: Neptunes

  • Q: How do you stop a bull from charging? A: Cancel his credit card

  • Q: Why did the mushroom go to the party? A: Because he was a fungi

  • Knock knock. Who's there? Snow. Snow who? Snow use - these jokes suck.

John’s jokes:

  • Q. Did you hear about the restaurant on the moon? A. Great food, no atmosphere.

  • Q. What do you call a fake noodle? A. An impasta.

  • Q. How many apples grow on a tree? A. All of them.

  • Q. How does a penguin build his house? A. It-gloos it together.

  • I’ve never gone to a gun range before but I decided to give it a shot!

  • Today my son asked, “Can I have a book mark?” and I burst into tears. 11 years old and he still doesn’t know my name is Brian!

  • As I handed my dad his 50th birthday card, he looked at me with tears in his eyes and said, “You know, one would have been enough!”

  • I got the words “jacuzzi” and “yakuza” confused and now I’m in hot water with the Japanese mafia!

Don’t forget about the daily dose of good stories every day on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook!
