Sometimes after a long day in the office humor can be the best medicine. Business jokes can really be a great way to brighten the day for your coworkers or to help yourself de-stress. If you like telling jokes rather than coming up with them on your own, you're sure to love reading (or repeating!) these highly rated jokes about business.

1. Light Bulb Joke

The light bulb joke is a favorite in any setting, especially businesses. These jokes work so great because of their simplicity and familiarity. This classic joke is ranked among the five best business jokes by Business Reporter:

  • "How many marketers does it take to screw in a light bulb? None - they've automated it!"

2. Business & Christmas

Maybe you need to have a chat at the water cooler, or you just want to add a little fun to your day. This classic joke received high marks from The Very Best Office Jokes.

  • "How is Christmas like your job? You do all the work and the fat guy in the suit gets all the credit!"

3. Getting a Raise

Boss/worker jokes are always funny. This is even more true when you add cash to the mix. That's why Alberta Venture includes this tale as one of its top "office-approved" jokes.

  • "Sam walks into his boss's office and says 'Sir, I'll be straight with you, I know the economy isn't great, but I have over three companies after me, and I would like to respectfully ask for a raise.'
  • After a few minutes of haggling the boss finally agrees to a 5% raise, and Sam happily gets up to leave. 'By the way,' asks the boss, 'Which three companies are after you?'
  • 'The electric company, water company, and phone company!'

4. Clean Office Humor

Finding clean jokes for your office pleasure can be a bit difficult. However, there are several top clean jokes out there.

  • "Tom had this problem of getting up late in the morning and was always late for work. His boss was mad at him and threatened to fire him if he didn't do something about it. So Tom went to his doctor who gave him a pill and told him to take it before he went to bed. Tom slept well, and in fact, beat the alarm in the morning. He had a leisurely breakfast and drove cheerfully to work.
  • 'Boss,' he said, 'The pill actually worked!'
  • 'That's all fine,' said the boss, 'But where were you yesterday?'
