People Are Sharing Their “$1,000” Go-To Jokes

Here’s an easy way to make $1,000: make someone laugh. That’s a recent scenario posed to the r/AskReddit subreddit.

“A mysterious man approaches you, offering $1000 if you can make him laugh. What’s your joke?”

Everyone has their own joke repertoire, but does everyone have one joke that is strong and universal enough to make a random stranger laugh? Now, that’s a tough one.

Thousands of Redditors chimed in, with the post receiving 2.3K comments. The question is — are their jokes good enough for this “mysterious man?”

The angel answers “Dip your hand in the water, and go on in.”

As they are eating the pastor says, “Son, pass the dam fish.”

The son says, “That’s the spirit dad! Pass the f**king potatoes!”


8. A quiet Italian

Three western spies were captured and put in a cell in the Soviet Union: An English spy, a French spy and an Italian spy. First they interrogate the English spy, but he refused to speak. So they tie him up and torture him for two hours until he finally gives in and tells them everything he knew. Next, they interrogate the French spy who also wouldn’t speak, but after 4 hours of torture he also couldn’t take anymore and told them everything he knew. Finally, they interrogate the Italian, who also wouldn’t speak, so they begin to torture him. After four hours he still hasn’t spoken, so they continue torturing him for hours. After enduring a full 24 hours of torture, they give up and put him back in the cell. The other two spies are amazed and ask the Italian how managed to go on for so long without speaking. The Italian replies “I would have told them everything after just one hour, but I couldn’t speak because my hands were tied up.
