Two hunters are lost in the woods.
After wandering around for a couple hours they decide to weigh their options, one says:
“I heard if you shoot in the air someone will hear and come to your rescue”.
So they fire a few times in the air and wait, nothing happens so they try again a couple more times, after a few hours of this they’re starting to get worried
and one says: “I hope we get help soon”,
To which the other responds, “I know right, I am almost out of arrows”!
“If you’re planning to go to the forest, always remember to pack a radio, a flare and a pack of cards.
If you get lost, you can try to use the radio to call someone.
If you run out of batteries, you can shot the flare up into the air…
The cards? Well, if the radio doesn’t work and the flare gets wet, you sit down and play solitary.
Sooner than later
someone will tap you in the shoulder to ask you
why don’t you move the queen of hearts to the king of clubs”
Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses.
He’s not breathing and his eyes are glazed, so his friend calls 911.
“My friend is dead! What should I do?”
The operator replies, “Calm down, sir.
I can help.
First make sure that he’s dead.”
There’s a silence, then a loud bang.
Back on the phone, the guy says,
“OK, now what?”
Two inexperienced hunters are out in the woods, and after a while they come upon some tracks.
“These are bear tracks!” the first hunter exclaims.
“No, idiot, they’re deer tracks!” the second one retorts.
“No, moron …”
And they go on like this for hours, until a train hits them.
Why makes this Joke funny?
Hunters Shooting Arrows for Rescue
Expectation vs. Reality: The joke sets up an expectation that the hunters are using a gun, as it`s typical for hunters in the woods. The punchline reveals they`re using arrows, which is absurd in this context.
Absurdity: The idea of shooting arrows into the air for rescue is absurd and impractical, creating a humorous contrast with the more logical approach of using a gun.
Misunderstanding: The joke plays on a misunderstanding of the advice to “shoot in the air” for help, which is typically meant for firearms, not bows and arrows.
Radio, Flare, and Cards in the Forest
Build-up and Twist: The joke builds up with practical survival items (radio, flare), then twists unexpectedly with the inclusion of a pack of cards.
Irony: The irony lies in the fact that playing solitaire, a seemingly useless activity in a survival situation, is what brings someone to help.
Absurd Solution: The suggestion that playing cards would attract help in a survival situation is absurd and contrasts sharply with the practical nature of the other items.
Two Hunters and the 911 Call
Dark Humor: This joke uses dark humor, as it deals with a potentially tragic situation in a light-hearted manner.
Literal Interpretation and Unexpected Action: The humor comes from the literal interpretation of the operator’s advice (“First make sure that he`s dead”) leading to an extreme and unexpected action (shooting the friend).
Miscommunication: It highlights a comedic miscommunication between the caller and the operator, where the caller takes the advice too literally.
