Blind Jokes

Blind Jokes

I met a lady today that is legally blind. She had an array of puns and “sighted” humor as we talked. This is how my friend “Uncle Rodney,” totally blind since the age of twelve, lived his entire life. Rodney had the best blind jokes. Humor is one way of dealing with a difficult situation. It could be that is their “method” of dealing with the horror of sightlessness or just maybe, their humor comes out of happiness. Laughter is good medicine. 
Uncle Rodney could recite this poem without even looking:
One bright morning in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight.
Back-to-back they faced one another,
Drew their swords and shot each other.
One was blind and the other couldn’t see,
So they chose a dummy for a referee.
A blind man went to see fair play,
A dumb man went to shout “hooray!”
A deaf policeman heard the noise,
And came and killed those two dead boys.
A paralyzed donkey walking by,
Kicked the copper in the eye,
Sent him through a rubber wall,
Into a dry ditch and drowned them all.
(If you don’t believe this lie is true,
Ask the blind man — he saw it too!)”
–Wikipedia
