Bankers, The Joke Is On You

Bankers, The Joke Is On You
▶ A man is stuck in traffic.  He asks a police officer about the hold-up and he replies: "The head of our Central Bank is so depressed about the economy he's stopped his car and is threatening to douse himself with petrol and set himself on fire.  So we're taking up a collection for him."  The man asks:  "How much have you got so far?"  The policeman replies:  "About 40 gallons, but a lot of people are still siphoning."

▶ A young banker decided to get his first tailor-made suit.  As he tried it on, he reached down to put his hands in the pockets and to his surprise he found none.  He mentioned this to the tailor who asked him, "You're a banker, right?"  The young man answered, "Yes, I am."  "Well, whoever heard of a banker with his hands in his own pockets?"


▶ Why don't sharks attack bankers?  Professional courtesy.

▶ What do you call 12 bankers at the bottom of the sea with their feet in cement blocks?   A good start.

▶ A London banker dies in poverty and so his local pub decides to raise funds for his funeral.  One day a man walks into the pub and is asked to donate 20p for the fund.  "What's it for?" he asks, and the landlord tells him.  So he reaches into his pocket, hands him a £5 note and says, "Here, go and bury 25 of them."


▶ What's the difference between a dead cat on the motorway and a dead banker on the motorway?  There are skidmarks around the cat.

▶ And finally: What's the problem with banker jokes?  Bankers don't think they're funny, normal people don't think they're jokes.
