You have been asked to be the MC for this year’s annual Employee Appreciation dinner. You’re nervous and not sure what to do or what to say but know a good way to start is with a good joke. No matter how much will power you just can’t come up with one funny line. If “funny” isn’t the adjective most people would use to describe you, then this whole joke business will definitely be a lesson in frustration.

We are here to help. After scouring the internet, doing multiple Google searches, and even reading one or two jokes ourselves, we’ve compiled a list of joke websites that will make your introduction to the dinner an instant hit.
We’re pretty sure you’ll be able to find a joke for every occasion. Have fun and laugh a lot!

A post office worker – yep, there is a category just for you. A farmer? You guessed it, there’s a joke or two here for you, too.
