Laughs For Tourists And Locals With Funny Jokes

Why did the tourist cross the road? Probably to escape bad tourist jokes like this one. But seriously, everyone enjoys a good joke and tourists are about the easiest people to laugh about. Tourists don't mind being the butt of a funny joke since at some point, everyone is a tourist. The Internet is chock full of hilarious, goofy and downright silly stuff about wild and wacky tourists if you're looking for a good laugh. But the great thing about tourists though, is that there's always material for creating your own universally funny jokes or in-jokes that can be shared between locals about those crazy visitors from out of town.

You don't need to be a comedy writer to see the humor in the funny things that out-of-towners do. That's why it's so easy to make up tourist jokes about things that would otherwise seem like completely innocent mistakes. For instance, a couple from California on the way to visit family in Indiana stops in Saint Louis, MO to see the Gateway Arch. The husband says, "So this is the Gateway to the East." The wife looks in a tourist brochure and says "No. The guide book says it's the Gateway to the West." The husband replies, "Not from where I’m standing."

Tourist Jokes Are Easy To Find Online

The above example just goes to show that making up good tourist jokes is hard work. You really want to go for something that's going to actually make people laugh, not hurl rotten fruit and vegetables at you. Chances are that if you find a joke that makes you laugh, it's going to make other people laugh too. That's why it's a great idea to just find funny jokes online rather than make them up yourself. Unless you're really good at making up jokes, it's best to save yourself the trouble and a bruised ego by just telling a good joke that somebody else made up. It'll probably work out so much better for you. Really.

There are lots of tourist jokes on the various joke websites that the Net has to offer. But it isn't always easy to find the kind you’re looking for. Try to be specific if you want to find jokes about your city or state or someone else's. If you just want some hilarity to laugh about then you’re sure to find plenty of it where tourists are concerned.
