40 Corny Jokes You Can't Help But Laugh At

Here's a fun fact for you: Do you know why we call cringe-worthy jokes "corny"? It started in the early 20th century, when mail-order seed catalogs tried to make their boring products more entertaining by including really terrible jokes. Just how bad were their corny jokes about corn? Here's one for you: "What did the corn say when he was complimented? Aw, shucks." Here's another: "What did one ear of corn say to the other? Don't look now, but we're being stalked." What do you think? Pretty corny, huh? Anyway, that's where funny corny jokes got their start, and the tradition continues today, although they're not exclusive to seed catalogs anymore, and they're rarely (if ever) about farming supplies.

Here are 40 of our favorite funny corny jokes guaranteed to make you laugh, even if the rational part of your brain wants to resist. We promise you, we're not trying to sell you seeds.
