|Note: This page of info is also used as the "Thank You" page if you just subscribed to our e-mail notification service. Note that you won't get the notices unless you click the link in the "confirmation" message that's sent to your address after you fill in the form — we don't want anyone subscribing others against their will.
More Important Note: For those of you who just signed up for the E-mail Notification Service, please note that it is an E-mail Notification Service — it is decidedly not something that sends you new jokes that are posted. We often have graphics and other things in the items, and obviously wouldn't want to send multi-hundred-kilobyte e-mails to junk up everyone's mailbox. Since this is a notification service, we send a notification that gives you a chance to decide whether you've seen it, and thus blow it off, or want to come check it out. If you whine that we "don't send the jokes," you will be considered an idiot and treated accordingly.
Welcome to Jumbo Joke. JJ features carefully selected, well-edited jokes and humorous stories. No junk, no registration, no subscription fees, and no popups! — just regular ads that make it all possible. The result: a site filled with big laughs — or big groans — categorized and searchable so you can find what you want.
Many of the earliest entries are culled from the archives of my "Randy's Random" newsletter, a popular e-mail publication than ran from 2000 to 2002.
The site has all the features I've wanted on a joke site, but few have: the ability to use an RSS/Atom webfeed reader to get notification of new postings. (Don't use such readers? No problem: you can sign up for e-mail notifications too — see the footer below for a form.) There's also a Random Joke function and, in addition to the usual previous/next links, there's previous/next for categories, too.
Submissions and Comments
I do not accept submissions for this site — please don't send me any! In fact, you won't even find a contact address here since (with a few noted exceptions) I didn't write the items posted here, so I'm not really all that interested in feedback or comments. I simply wanted to create a place where you can find consistently good — and, the attribute lacking from most joke sites, well-edited — humor. If you really, really need to contact me, however, say for some sort of dire humor emergency, you can do it via my This is True web site; my e-mail address is on the Contact page.
How To Complain About Political (or Religious) Jokes Here
There are certain people of extreme political partisanship who wish to complain about the "obvious bias" of the political jokes here. There are actually two names for such people: "liberals" and "conservatives". The "liberals" complain that certain jokes slam them unfairly, and that the proprietor of this site is obviously biased against them and their political beliefs. Conversely, the "conservatives" complain that certain jokes slam them unfairly, and that the proprietor of this site is obviously biased against them and their political beliefs. The most extreme of the two camps see absolutely no irony that both of these statements are completely true.
There are also those who think their religion ought to be exempt from smiles, even after they laugh at jokes about other religions.
If you are one of those people and cannot see this irony, and thus wish to complain about a particular political or religious joke on this site, follow this complaint procedure:
No other complaints will be accepted. If you have the gall to laugh at jokes that slam the "other side" but can't handle it when the exact same web site slams your side now and then, the problem is yours, not ours. Grow the hell up and deal with it. And if you can't, then you have only one choice: stop reading the site. If you have any questions, reread this entire section until you actually understand it.
