I'm a big fan of humor, especially since the research is clear that humor has numerous health benefits (See very bottom of this page). It never hurts to laugh out loud, and the impact on your blood pressure, heart rate, reduction in stress hormones, etc. is well documented. I thought I'd use this page as a forum for jokes submitted by clients or just whomever. To seed the project, I put up a couple of jokes poking fun at my own profession, but as they become available, I'll post more. If you have a joke you would like me to put on this page, send it to me at:

Dr. Griggs

The joke(s) you send have to meet only a few conditions. One, they have to make me laugh. If I don't laugh, we have a different sense of humor. It's my website, so I get to make the rules. Two, they have to be low on the offensive scale. I don't want to offend anyone, even though some humor, no mattter how benign, frequently has underlying sarcasm, or worse. I won't post anything that is blatantly racial, prejudicial, misogynistic or obviously hurtful. If I overlook any of these things and get a complaint, I'll remove the joke.

Jokes can be pictures, as in cartoons. Send them as attachments and if they're funny, they will end up here. Obvious goof ball questions/jokes designed to annoy the psychologist will be deleted, unless they are from mocking friends. In that case, expect an equal level reply.


The psychologist greets his client in the waiting room by saying, "Hello Mrs. Jones, how are you?" The client becomes enraged, turns red-faced, clenches her fist and yells, "I'm Mrs. Smith and I've been coming to you for months. How can you not even know my name?" The psychologist retorts, "Well, you know, psychology is an inexact science."


At the end of the workday, the older more seasoned psychologist and the younger, just beginning psychologist just happened to be coming down a couple flights of stairs together. The older psychologist has a spring in his step, a twinkle in his eye and is effortlessly taking each step with vigor. The younger psychologist is dragging his behind, moping, head and shoulders down and moving slowly. The younger psychologist looks at the older psychologist with obvious wonder, and says, "Here we are at the end of the day, having heard story after story of trouble in people's lives, often big ordeals and we patiently try to be helpful, enduring their pain and suffering, and you look fresh and alive. I feel awful. How do you do it?" To wit, the older psychologist replies, "Who listens?"

One year, I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a Christmas gift... The next year, I didn't buy her a gift.  When she asked me why, I replied,  "Well, you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year!"
And that's how the fight started. 

My wife and I were watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while we were in bed.  I turned to her and said, 'Do you want to have sex?'  'No,' she answered.   I then said, ‘Is that your final answer?'  She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying, 'Yes..'  So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend."

My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion, and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.   I asked her, "Do you know him?"  "Yes", she sighed, "He's my old boyfriend.  I understand he took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he hasn't been sober since."  "My God!"  I said, "Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?"

When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run, my wife kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed.  But, somehow I always had something else to take care of first, the shed, the boat, making beer.  Always something more important to me.  Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point.   When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors.  I watched silently for a short time and then went into the house.  I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again I handed her a toothbrush.  I said, "When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway."

My wife sat down next to me as I was flipping channels   She asked, "What's on TV?"  I said, "Dust."

My husband was hinting about what he wanted for our upcoming anniversary. He said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 200 in about 2 seconds."  I bought him a bathroom scale.

My husband was standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.   He was not happy with what he saw and said to me, "I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly.  I really need you to pay me a compliment.'   I replied, "Your eyesight's damn near perfect."
