For a lot of us, personal finance & investing isn’t the most exciting topic in the world! It’s often associated with nerds. So for this week, I went hunting all over the internet for some hilarious financial jokes to make you pee a little in your pants 😊🤑

And here’s a hilarious gift for your friends in finance/accounting!


Couple Financial Jokes


#1. ‘Lying on his deathbed, the rich, miserly old man calls to his long-suffering wife. “I want to take all my money with me,” he tells her. “So promise me you’ll put it in the casket.”

After the man dies, his widow attends the memorial service with her best friend. Just before the undertaker closes the coffin, she places a small metal box inside.

Her friend looks at her in horror. “Surely,” she says, “you didn’t put the money in there.”

“I did promise him I would,” the widow answers. “So I got it all together, deposited every penny in my account, and wrote him a check. If he can cash it, he can spend it.”‘


#2. ‘A woman proudly told her friend, “I’m responsible for making my husband a millionaire.” “Well what was he before he married you?” the friend asked. “A billionaire.”‘


#3. ‘Married couple during hard financial times…

A man and his wife are having hard financial times and decide that the husband will pimp the wife out.

The man parks and waits while his wife goes around the corner to stir up business.

At the end of the night, the wife comes back to the car, and her husband asks how much she made.

“$100 and 50 cents,” the wife says.

“That’s great,” replies the husband. “But who paid the 50 cents?”

“All of them.”‘

#4. ‘Financial Planning like a pro…

Dan was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business. His sickly father told Dan he was going to inherit the business and a fortune but his father’s one wish was to see Dan get married and settle before he passed on.

One evening, Dan went to a financial planning seminar. It was given by the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. She was bright and personable to boot. Dan fell in love at first sight. 

He told her, “I may look pretty ordinary, but my father will probably die soon and I will inherit the family business and a large fortune.” Impressed, the woman asked Dan for his business card, and three weeks later, she became his stepmother.’


#5. ‘Because my wife and I are flea market dealers, we usually carry stacks of $1 bills. 

Not long ago, we had lunch at a restaurant and paid the check with singles. 

As our waitress collected the ones, she sized up my 70-year-old wife and said, “You had a good night dancing last night, huh?”.’


#6. ‘A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbour. Before she says a word, Bob says:

“I’ll give you $800 to drop that towel.”

After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob. A few seconds and a satisfying glance later, Bob hands her $800 and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks:

“Who was that?”

“It was Bob, the next-door neighbour,” she replies.

“Great,” the husband says, “did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?”

Moral of the story: If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.’

Penny pinchers also appreciate thoughtful, but mostly functional gifts: this glazed ceramic piggy bank will look great on their desk or bookshelf

The first Advisor replies, “It’s the $100 I owe you.”‘
