For those writers, readers, and English teachers who are familiar with the English language, here are the 10 funniest grammar jokes :

1. A guy walks into a bar, only receiving minor injuries. (Just kidding. That’s not even funny. Poor guy.) Okay, Let’s try again…

1. Commas can save lives. Ex: “Some people enjoy cooking, their families, and their dogs”. OR “Some people enjoy cooking their families and their dogs”.

2. The past, the present, and the future walk into a bar. It was tense.

C. When I was a kid, my English teacher called on me and said, “Name two pronouns”. I said ” Who, me?”

XII. Every time I see someone type “to funny”, I envision them raising a fist and heading out on a quest to find funny.

Yellow. AMBIGUITY… What happens in vagueness, stays in vagueness, baby!

6. A panda walks into a cafe. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and fires two shots in the air. “Why?” asks the confused waiter, as the panda makes towards the exit. The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder. “I’m a panda,” he says at the door. “Look it up.” The waiter turns to the relevant entry and, sure enough, finds an explanation. “Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.”

Still 6. Sign: “Attention: Toilet only for disabled elderly pregnant children”

11/3. From actual church bulletin: “ The ladies of the church have cast off clothing of every kind. They can be seen in the church basement Saturday.”

eleventy-2. Another church bulletin one: Applications are now being accepted for 2 year-old nursery workers.
