One hundred one-liners

Okay, let’s have some fun! Here’s some one-liners for you, and you can memorise them if you want (or just have a laugh, whatever).

Unless you’re a natural born comedian, there have probably been times when you would have loved to have a fund of ready made one-liners/clever comments/jokes, already memorised, so you could come out with something amusing just at the right moment. Well, now you can! As long as you’re prepared to put in a bit of memorising, of course. It’s not gonna happen by magic!

I’ve put together 100 one-liners I found here and there, and they’re not bad, mostly – in fact some are really good – although some, to be honest, are pretty lame! But anyway, that’s objective – what amuses me might make you wonder what the hell I was thinking when I selected them! Doesn’t really matter, it’s just a memory exercise. And I’ve tried to link some of them, wherever possible,  to their number positions, just to make them a bit easier to memorise.

Oh, and if you can’t be bothered to try to memorise them, no problem, just have a bit of fun reading them!
