This is my favorite joke as of late. I’m not one for remembering jokes but this one sticks with me because I tend to be an optimist day in and day out despite life’s trials and tribulations. Enjoy!
Here are some other optimist jokes:
A family had twin boys whose only resemblance to each other was their looks. If one felt it was too hot, the other thought it was too cold. If one said the TV was too loud, the other claimed the volume needed to be turned up. Opposite in every way, one was an eternal optimist, the other a doom and gloom pessimist.
Just to see what would happen, on the twins’ birthday their father loaded the pessimist’s room with every imaginable toy and game; the optimist’s room he loaded with horse manure.
That night the father passed by the pessimist’s room and found him sitting amid his new gifts crying bitterly.
“Why are you crying?” the father asked.
“Because my friends will be jealous, I’ll have to read all these instructions before I can do anything with this stuff, I’ll constantly need batteries, and my toys will eventually get broken,” answered the pessimist twin.
Passing the optimist twin’s room, the father found him dancing for joy in the pile of manure. “What are you so happy about?” he asked.
To which his optimist twin replied, “There’s got to be a pony in here somewhere!” source
There were 2 friends….
One an Optimist & the other a Pessimist, could never quite agree on any topic of discussion.
One day the Optimist decided he had found a good way to pull his friend out of his continual Pessimistic thinking.
The Optimist owned a huntin’ dog that could walk on water.
His plan? Take the Pessimist and the dog out duck hunting in a boat.
They got out into the middle of the lake, & the Optimist brought down a duck.
The dog immediately walked out across the water, retrieved the duck & walked back to the boat.
The Optimist looked at his Pessimistic friend & said, ‘What do you think about that?’
The Pessimist replied, ‘There~Didn’t I say….That dog can’t swim, can he?’ Source
The optimist proclaims we live in the best of all possible worlds, and the pessimist fears this is true.
