The Covid pandemic seemingly just smacked down on society suddenly and put a halt on many things. People lost their jobs, some even lost their lives and thus people lost loved ones. But if there was anything positive sprouting from the pandemic (that seemed to go on and on) was that it proved how fragile societies are and that many are not ready for a crisis.
Positivity comes in because it shows us that we have a problem, and the first step to solving any problem no matter how big or small is recognizing that there is one. But for just a second, let’s take our minds off of the critical issues because every now and then, it’s good to bring and keep humor in your life. Even when it comes to the dark sides of life, humor can certainly be found.
Dark humor jokes, however, should only be kept between you and your closest acquaintances. The downside to this genre of jokes is that they may not be the best way to break the ice with strangers. But because you’re fortunate, your equally twisted friends and family members are bound to crack a few smiles. Telling dark humor jokes, no matter who you tell them to, always comes with risk. But risks are amongst the things making our lives fascinating!
We’ve gathered some of the greatest dark humor jokes to tell your close peers! Don’t forget to share your favorites in the comments below!
Doctor, Doctor . . .
“I just got my doctor’s test results and I’m really upset about it. Turns out, I’m not gonna be a doctor.”

Remember telling your siblings they were adopted? Did they believe you?
“Do you know the phrase ‘One man’s trash is another man’s treasure?’ Wonderful saying, horrible way to find out that you were adopted.”
“My husband left a note on the fridge that said, ‘This isn’t working.’ I’m not sure what he’s talking about. I opened the fridge door and it’s working fine!”
That would be a pretty horrible way to end a marriage, don’t you think? But of course, we don’t know the whole story.
A little skull has become the iconic symbol for death so we all know not to drink from the bottle with a little skull on it! If you’re further interested in the things poison can do to your body, you may wish to check out Radium Girls currently available to stream on Netflix.
“It’s important to establish a good vocabulary. If I had known the difference between the words ‘antidote’ and ‘anecdote,’ one of my best friends would still be alive.”
Some of the greatest dark humor jokes involve some aspect of the scientific world. We’ve all heard about our connection to chimpanzees. (It’s amazing what millions of years of evolution can do!)

“When ordering food at a new restaurant, my wife asked the waiter what they do to prepare the chicken. ‘Nothing special,’ he explained. “We just tell them they’re going to die.”
Well, at least the meat is fresh, right?
