We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

I spent a lot of time with this one, and got nowhere. What do you think:

A man left home one Friday night to have a little bit of fun. He went to the local bar and had a few drinks. A few hours later he got home, turned off the lights and went to bed.

The next morning he opened the curtains and looked out from the window. He screamed and jumped through the window killing himself.

What was the man's occupation?

An additional clue: He lived by the sea.

If he was a lighthouse-keeper and turned off the lights before retiring to bed, he too might have been put out on finding that a shipwreck had occurred through his drunken negligence.

YES! This is the right answer. TIP: If you want to tell this the hard way, add as many unnecessary details as possible...
