Woodworm isn’t really a laughing matter to most people. An infestation of wood worm can be a big problem if you don’t combat it straight away. But one of the great things about human beings is that, even when faced with a problem, we can usually still see a funny side to it.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of some of the funniest woodworm jokes. While they aren’t all side splitters some at least try to raise a smile so read on if you could do with a laugh. Or at the very least you can sit in judgement of some really awful wooden puns (a bit like that one I suppose).
Number 1 – What did the woodworm say when he went to the pub?
Is the bar tender here?
Before you jump to conclusions, go over the joke a couple of times – this is one joke you might not get at first glance. The clever word play might bring a smile to your face when you notice it, but let’s be honest it’s not exactly amazingly funny is it? Saying it’s even slightly funny would be a stretch to be honest.
Verdict – Clever wordplay but nothing all that funny
Number 2 – What is life like for a woodworm?
Well it’s not a massive improvement over the first joke but its simplicity is sort of endearing isn’t it? Ok maybe it’s not, but it’s another example of clever word play like the first joke but unfortunately it’s also not all that funny – like the first joke.
Verdict – Sort of endearing in its simplicity but again not very funny
Number 3 – Did you hear about the stupid woodworm?
He was found inside a brick.
We’re not sure why, but this kind of made us smile. It isn’t cleverly worded and the joke isn’t even all that funny, but it made us smile a little so at least that’s something. It’s a Christmas cracker style joke in the purest sense – you know it isn’t very funny but you’ll probably laugh anyway.
Verdict – Yeah it isn’t going to win any awards but it might make you smile
Number 4 – One woodworm asked another “How’s life”
“Same as usual” he replied “Boring”
So this is basically joke number 2 but worded differently. And like joke number 2 it isn’t massively funny. However, the delivery of it can raise a smile. It’s difficult to understand why, even though it’s pretty much the same joke, but the delivery just makes it funnier.
Verdict – Again the joke isn’t all that funny but the delivery does improve it
Number 5 – What did the woodworm say to the chair?
It’s been nice gnawing you.
This could just be bad taste in jokes taking over but we actually found this funny. It’s stupid but also easy to visualise, which adds to its charm.
Verdict – Yeah it’s stupid and silly but aren’t a lot of good jokes?
So what is the final verdict on woodworm jokes? They’re not all that great but some might make you smile a little.
