Some jokes are purely funny, and some tragedies are purely sad, but the best kinds of entertainment straddle the line between comedy and tragedy. The best jokes make us cry and laugh at the same time. This list contains twenty of the funniest saddest jokes on the internet.
Keep reading if you want to take a ride on an emotional roller coaster. Buckle your seatbelts, keep your hands and arms inside the vehicle at all times, and away we go.
Delete Your Account
Wow. That is definitely a savage reply. Why does everybody have a vlog channel nowadays? I don’t need to know how you’re spending every minute of your day.
Especially if you have a boring life. Living my own life is boring enough, I don’t need to watch you live yours too.
He Just Wants To Be Loved
Why is this the cutest avocado frog I’ve ever seen? I don’t know if I want to pick him up and hug him or if I want to turn him into guacamole.
I think when in doubt, it’s always best to go for the hug. This is how I know that the universe is inherently good. It’s because frogs like this exist.
Not Like This…
They always ask “where’s Waldo?” but they never ask “how’s Waldo?” There are so many questions we didn’t ask about Waldo. Now it’s too late.
We’ll never forget you, Waldo. We enjoyed your glasses and your striped shirt. See you on the other side— if we can find you.
Wait A Minute
This is funny in a very dark kind of way. I was going to make a witty comment about it but then I forgot what I was going to say.
Maybe something about how Google is going to be the first line of defense against degenerative brain diseases?
When Reality Hits You Hard
Ah, Cards Against Humanity, the game that’s always there to create awkward moments and remind us of our own tragic future.
That white card sums up the millennial condition pretty well. Thanks, previous generation, for securing this fate for us. We really appreciate it.
The Truth Hurts
HAHAHhaha ha. ha. Oh goodness, this is sad. But also hilarious. Of course you need friends to throw a party.
Dad knows what’s up. Anybody who messes with people’s phones probably doesn’t have many friends left. Keep reading to see a guy who’s taking “that feel when no gf” to the next level.
For those of you who weren’t paying attention in third-grade biology, a caterpillar grows inside its egg for about four days.
Then it hatches, eats a lot and grows for two more weeks. It lives inside the chrysalis for ten days, and then its life as an adult butterfly lasts anywhere from two to six weeks.
The Best Laid Plans…
This is an old joke, but it’s a good joke. In all seriousness, though, it can take eight to sixteen weeks for a vasectomy to be completely effective.
You’re still fertile for a good while, so be careful, unless you want to waste that expensive surgery.
Incredibles With His Lady
I bet this guy waited fourteen years to make this joke. I respect that. I bet he actively avoided being in relationships just so he could be single and make this joke when the second movie finally came out.
This is what it really means to be committed.
Found In A Japanese Newspaper
That’s harsh, Japan, very harsh. People over thirty-five, is that true? Do you just get used to your suffering?
I guess getting used to it is pretty close to actually being happy. Happiness is just a state of mind. Fake it till you make it.
Seems About Right
Tupperware? That’s some fancy stuff. This guy’s got name brand plastic containers. All my containers are no-name hand-me-downs from my parents and grandparents.
Either that or they’re empty hummus containers that I’ve washed out and filled with salad.
Good Luck Explaining This To Your Boss
If you’re looking to get a job driving a truck, call the number on the side of this vehicle. I have a feeling that there might be an opening.
Also, if you’re a person who builds or fixes bridges, there might be some work coming your way soon.
There’s an episode of The Office where Michael Scott kept trying to get people to say “what’s updog,” and when he finally got someone to say it, Michael just said, “ha! Got you!”
He missed the punchline opportunity. The Office is comedy gold. We don’t deserve Michael Scott.
A Divine Gift
I’m not even in my thirties yet and I already have way less than twelve close friends. Maintaining adult friendships is really difficult. Everybody is so busy all the time.
How are you supposed to make time to hang out when everybody has a job and kids and a significant other?
What An Uplifting Quote
The sad thing is that this is very true. The funny thing is that this girl managed to get this quote in her actual high school yearbook.
I guess anything is possible. This girl’s name also sounds pretty Caucasian, which is probably good news for her, unfortunately.
I Think That Time Is Now
I wonder what would happen if there was a nationwide GoFundMe campaign for healthcare. Do you think Americans could raise more money if they were given the option to contribute versus if they were compelled to contribute because of tax laws?
Do we have this much faith in the citizens of our country?
The Saddest Family Dinner
Batman, like all superheroes, had a sad life. Some people think that you need to have a sad life to become someone as epic and impressive as Batman.
I disagree. I think Batman would have been an even better superhero if his parents were alive. Controversial opinion? Maybe.
I hope whoever took this picture picked Kevin up off the ground and gave him a second chance at life.
Now Kevin can keep fulfilling his life’s purpose until this guy inevitably loses him and the cycle begins all over again. Once a pencil case, always a pencil case.
I Found The “Glass Half Empty” Person
Why do dogs have such short lifespans? It really isn’t fair. Dogs deserve to live twice as long as people. They have twice as much love in their hearts and they’re twice as lovely.
I’m still going to get a dog, though. It’s worth all of the eventual sadness.
Amen, Samuel L. Jackson
Ok, so maybe this isn’t the real Samuel L. Jackson. The Twitter handle in this picture is missing an “L.”
Even if it’s not real, it’s still a pretty good joke. Whoever wrote it, I applaud you. Sam Jackson was probably too busy getting snakes off of a plane somewhere.
