9 Funny Short Jokes To Make Your Partner Laugh

What are 10 incredibly funny short jokes that can make your partner laugh?

The importance of laughter in a relationship should not be under-estimated. Humour can dispel awkward situations during a first or second date, and it can also keep a relationship thriving when situations and circumstances are threatening to get on top of you both.

Just like a shared interest, as well as shared values, a shared sense of humour strengthens the bonds between two people. When one – or both – of you have been having a bad day, you can fall back on a few jokes to lift your spirits.

Humour can also prevent arguments from getting out of control and make you realise that you were both getting a bit silly with your words and accusations. Humour can be a great leveller that reminds you not to take life so seriously, and to always look on the bright side of things.

And like love itself, laughter is always there for you.

I personally love it when my boyfriend tells me a joke. He always knows how to tickle my funny bone, and his jokes never fail to make me giggle. Laughing is attractive. When I smile and laugh together with my partner, I fall even more in love with him. It ramps up desire. You’re sharing in the positivity and happiness, and it’s amazing.

So if you and your partner haven’t laughed much recently and need something to get you giggling, here are 10 incredibly funny short jokes that will make you both laugh. And the best thing is that they don’t take long at all to learn:


“A guy is sitting at home when he hears a knock at the door. He opens the door and sees a snail on the porch. He picks up the snail and throws it as far as he can. Three years later there’s a knock on the door. He opens it and sees the same snail. The snail says: ‘What the hell was that all about?’”

This one cracks me up every time. Tell this to your partner anytime you want. It’s always guaranteed to raise a few chuckles!

“Three guys stranded on a desert island find a magic lantern containing a genie, who grants them each one wish. The first guy wishes he was off the island and back home. The second guy wishes the same. The third guy says: ‘I’m lonely. I wish my friends were back here.’”

You can’t beat a good ‘three guys’ joke. This one is my personal favourite. The key to a good joke is that there is always someone at the sticky end of things. Someone always has to experience misfortune.

In this case, it’s the hapless third man who is too dumb to realise that all he has to do is wish he was back home!

“Mother, “How was school today, Patrick?”

Patrick, “It was really great mum! Today we made explosives!”

Mother, “Ooh, they do very fancy stuff with you these days. And what will you do at school tomorrow?”

Patrick, “What school?””

Haha! This joke is just one of those silly, playful ones that always lift the mood and gets you both laughing. Tell this one if you want to raise a smile and get romantic with your partner.

“Where there’s a will – there’s a relative!” 

– Ricky Gervais

Is Ricky Gervais one of the sharpest minds in comedy right now? I think so. Pick an appropriate time to fire this one out and you’ll have him over a barrel.

(Tip – don’t say it out loud in front of a relative!!)

“Taylor Swift waved at a boy yesterday and he didn’t wave back… So she will have a new album coming out tomorrow.” 

– Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell had to be in here somewhere. The star of hit comedies such as Zoolander, Anchorman and Wedding Crashers, he is one of the funniest American actors on the planet right now. This dig at pop starlet Taylor Swift is on point.

“I used to think the brain was the most important organ. Then I thought, look what’s telling me that.”

This is a wise crack for a more sophisticated mind. If your partner fancies himself as a bit of an intellectual, crack this joke to make him laugh.

“There was a prison break and I saw a midget climb up the fence. As he jumped down her sneered at me and I thought, well that’s a little condescending.”

This is hilarious. Again, it’s just short, but it’s sweet and very funny.

“A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer. ‘This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it you.’ The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, ‘Which do you want, son?’ The boy takes the quarters and leaves. ‘What did I tell you?’ said the barber. ‘That kid never learns!’ Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. ‘Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?’ The boy licked his cone and replied, ‘Because the day I take the dollar, the game is over!’”

This one is a bit longer than all the jokes put together on this list, but we think it’s hilarious enough to include. Once you’ve learned it, you’ll have your partner rolling around on the floor with laughter.

    You’re absolutely right! Humor is as important as breathing in a relationship. We can’t take life too serious and laughter is certainly one way to break the obligatory life society is forced to live. Thanks for sharing…

    Take care,
