Oysters are Not a Joke

Does anyone know any good oyster jokes? I was supposed to come up with my own oyster joke - something like "What did one oyster say to the other?" Well, what would an oyster say? "My pearl's bigger than yours." "Let's head on over to the oyster bar." Those are about as funny as the joke my brother told us at the dinner table when he was little:

"Why did the cow jump over the moon? Because it was a goat." - Cracks me up every time.

A little internet research didn't produce very many oyster jokes either. There's the one that goes, "an annoying noise annoys an oyster" and that's about it. A little more internet research produces some more important information. Consumption of raw or undercooked oysters can cause serious illness and even death. If you are going to eat Gulf oysters, and a lot of people do, you need to be aware of the dangers. is a website dedicated to educating the oyster consuming public. If you're going to eat the oysters, please be informed and do it safely. The noise you make is up to you.

  1. You're right; oysters are not funny. You put a microphone to them, and they tend to clam up.


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
