Life can be hard sometimes. Which is why a little humor goes a long way, and for some of us, that means digging into the deepest, darkest pits of our mind. For those who appreciate a little dark humor, we’ve compiled a list of inappropriate and dirty jokes majorly dripping in shock value. Some are just so ridiculous it’s as though George Costanza and Larry David thought them up on the spot. They’re basically the antihero of jokes.

There’s nothing wrong with a little dark humor, but it’s important to know your friend group and how to read the room. These may not be the jokes you bust out in front of your co-workers or in-laws. But your friends or equally demented family may be on board. Expressing your dark humor is a gamble, but our advice is to always take the risk (except at work). You may find your tribe. 

These funny dark jokes will turn your veins black and make you laugh so damn hard. Sorry, not sorry (but really, sorry). And you’re not alone in your search for them, either. According to the latest search data available to us, dark jokes are searched for nearly 110,000 times per month. The ultimate goal, however, is to take a moment of darkness and bring some levity into our lives. Here are our favorites to get through the day. Warning: These aren’t child-friendly jokes. Kids are far too innocent for this stuff, unlike us sick and twisted individuals.
