One of the great things about quotes is that they can express such a range of emotions. They can make you cry, they can soothe the soul, they can express the longing of love, and thankfully, they can make you howl with laughter.
Funny quotes are real treasures in a world that often takes itself way too seriously. From contemporary comedians to the timeless tongue-in-cheek wisdom of the ageless greats—Will Rogers, Mark Twain and Groucho Marx—there are funny quotes for all occasions and all senses of humor.
What you say? People have different senses of humor? Why yes, they do. Some like funny quotes to be on the dry side of wit while others want a boldfaced twist of words that will have them rolling on the floor uncontrollably.
For example, there are countless anonymous classics, such as “Energizer Bunny arrested, charged with battery” or the sage advice of “Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died.”
Others gravitate to the funny quotes of the famed comedians. Joan Rivers is famous for her one-liners such as: "I knew I was an unwanted baby when I saw that my bath toys were a toaster and a radio." So is Rodney Dangerfield: “When I was born the doctor took one look at my face… turned me over and said, Look… twins!"
In an age of social media—Twitter, Facebook and so on—funny quotes can give you something worthwhile to say, even when your own witty words momentarily escape you.
They can also add a little levity to a more serious occasion. Who doesn’t like a little laugh during a wedding toast? Instead of being all serious, boring guests to tears, you can be the life of the party by offering up funny quotes from the likes of Zsa Zsa Gabor, who certainly knows a thing or two about marriage: “A man in love is incomplete until he has married. Then he's finished.”
Fortunately, finding funny quotes is easy these days. You can use the handy search feature to find a specific category of quotes, including “Funny.” Just click on the category and off you go. Or you can narrow your search by the author or the topic that needs a humorous quotation. Chances are good that you’ll find just the right quote quickly and easily, ready to delight friends and family with something that matches your unique sense of humor.
While many of these funny quotes are attributed to famous people, don’t overlook the anonymous and unknown entries. They can provide just as much laughter, even though nobody took credit for them. For example, who doesn’t love: “When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did, in his sleep—not screaming, like the passengers in his car.”
Now who wouldn’t want to lay claim to that little beauty?
A man of many talents, Will Rogers was born in 1859 in Oklahoma. On a ranch growing up, a freed slave taught Rogers how to use a lasso. He turned his roping skills into a job as a trick roper at Wild West shows and on Vaudeville stages. As he did his rope tricks, he'd tell jokes and offer commentary on the world. He was a smart man and his ability to tell the truth while making people laugh quickly caught on with American audiences. During his lifetime, he starred on Broadway, appeared in 71 movies, was a popular broadcaster and wrote 4,000 syndicated newspaper columns. He died in a pl…
