    Jokes needed! Holidays for Hereoes

    Primal Fuel
    Holiday Mail for Heroes | American Red Cross | Military Support
    Details of the program.

    My work is participating. I want to write a few jokes in a few cards. They should be fairly "neutral" (preferably not about a holiday). These will be screened so I'm not sure how many "off-color" jokes would be let through either. I thought some military humor might be good, as long as it's not disparaging. I'm hunting around on joke sites for anything that strikes me as funny and inoffensive, which means hopefully someone else will too.

    Who is up to the task? I'm not naturally funny, I need some help!

    some military humor would be great. if you can find a couple of reader's digest magazines, i remember they used to have a short portion called "humor in uniform" that was all military focused. you could probably steal right from there and get people feeling good.

    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.
