Comedy legends like Joan Rivers, Wanda Sykes, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, and so many others figured out a secret a long time ago: The great equalizer in comedy is to find the humor in the mundane and everyday shared experiences. That’s when comedy becomes a universal language. Activities like going to the dentist, doing your taxes, and watching your plumber (and their plumber’s crack) in action are comedy gold. Hey, we’ve all been there — that’s why it’s funny.
Another such example of a tedious and soul-sucking activity is going to the bank. The long lines, the outdated technology, the chain-anchored pens perpetually missing ink…it’s a journey. This is why bank jokes and puns are so darn enjoyable and silly. Sure, accountant jokes and money puns can scratch the itch sometimes, but there’s something about a good loanshark quip that hits the spot just right. So with that in mind, we rounded up the corniest, most ridiculous bank jokes even your teller would giggle at.
