Sometimes after a long day in the office humor can be the best medicine. Business jokes can really be a great way to brighten the day for your coworkers or to help yourself de-stress. If you like telling jokes rather than coming up with them on your own, you're sure to love reading (or repeating!) these highly rated jokes about business.
1. Light Bulb Joke
The light bulb joke is a favorite in any setting, especially businesses. These jokes work so great because of their simplicity and familiarity. This classic joke is ranked among the five best business jokes by Business Reporter:
"How many marketers does it take to screw in a light bulb? None - they've automated it!"
2. Business & Christmas
Maybe you need to have a chat at the water cooler, or you just want to add a little fun to your day. This classic joke received high marks from The Very Best Office Jokes.
"How is Christmas like your job? You do all the work and the fat guy in the suit gets all the credit!"
3. Getting a Raise
Boss/worker jokes are always funny. This is even more true when you add cash to the mix. That's why Alberta Venture includes this tale as one of its top "office-approved" jokes.
"Sam walks into his boss's office and says 'Sir, I'll be straight with you, I know the economy isn't great, but I have over three companies after me, and I would like to respectfully ask for a raise.'
After a few minutes of haggling the boss finally agrees to a 5% raise, and Sam happily gets up to leave. 'By the way,' asks the boss, 'Which three companies are after you?'
'The electric company, water company, and phone company!'
