Deaf Jokes



Two Deaf men are signing to each other. 
The first man asks, "What did your wife say when you got home late last night? 
The second man replies, "She swore a blue streak" 
And the first man asks, "What did you do then?" 
And the second man replies, "I turned out the light."


A Mafia gang takes on a Deaf man to run their deliveries, feeling it would be safer having someone unable to overhear conversations.  However, one day when he is to deliver a large sum of money, he never shows up with it.  The mobsters track him down, but don't find the money on him.  As none of them are able to use sign language, they bring in an interpreter.

Mobster: "Where'd you hide the money?" (Interpreter signs the question.)

The bag man signs his reply.  The interpreter says, "He says he had to ditch it in the river because the cops were onto him."

Mobster:  "I'm not fooling around!  You better tell me where that money is!"  (Interpreter again signs.)

The bag man signs his reply, and the interpreter relays, "He swears he is telling the truth.  He had to get rid of it."

The mobster pulls out a revolver and points it between the Deaf man's eyes.  "Tell me where that money is, or I'll kill you right now!" 
(Interpreter signs his statement.)

The bag man, sweating profusely, signs, "It's inside a shoebox under a loose floorboard in my bedroom closet."

The interpreter says, "He says he doesn't know where it is and he doesn't think you have the guts to pull the trigger."


Researchers tell us that only about 25 percent of what is said can be understood by lipreading.

For example:

Suppose a woman says:
"This place is a mess! C'mon,
You and I need to clean this place up,
Your stuff is lying all over on the floor
and you'll have no clothes to wear tomorrow
unless we do the laundry right now!"

Her lipreading husband will get:
blah, blah, blah, blah, C'MON
YOU AND I blah, blah, blah, blah,
blah, blah, blah, blah, ON THE FLOOR
blah, blah, NO CLOTHES blah, blah,
blah, blah, blah, blah, RIGHT NOW!


A 92 year-old man went to the Doctor to get a physical. 
A few days later the Dr. saw the man walking down the street 
with a gorgeous young lady on his arm.

A couple of days later the Dr. talked to the man and said, "You're 
really doing great, aren't you?"

The man replied, "Just doing what you said Doctor, 'Get a hot mamma 
and be cheerful."

The Doctor said, "I didn't say that. I said you got a heart 
murmur. Be careful."


An elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years. 
He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a 
set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%.

The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor 
said, "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that 
you can hear again."

The gentleman replied, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit 
around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three 


An old man was wondering if his wife had a hearing problem. 
So one night, he stood behind her while she was sitting in her lounge chair. 
He spoke softly to her, "Honey, can you hear me?" 
There was no response. 
He moved a little closer and said again, "Honey, can you hear me?" 
Still, there was no response. 
Finally he moved right behind her and said, "Honey, can you hear me?" She replied, "For the third time, Yes!"
