Thai jokes are numerous with ladyboy’s usually being the brunt. Here are some that I think you will enjoy.


"How's your new Thai girlfriend, Dave?"

"How do you know her name?"


I’m going to Thailand this year and to make sure I don’t get any "surprises" I'm asking prostitutes to show me their crotch before I take them to my room.-

Last time I nearly ended up sleeping with a woman!


An Irish Catholic boy and a Thai Buddhist boy were talking and the Catholic boy said, "My priest knows more than your Buddha." The Buddhist boy said, "Of course he does, you tell him everything."


I just got back from holiday in Bangkok where I came very close to sleeping with a ladyboy. She looked like a woman, she walked like a woman, she talked like a woman and she even kissed like a woman! It was only when she drove me back to her place and reversed parked her car on the first attempt I thought “hang on…”

Nothing says, "I'm a fat ugly bastard with no personality." quite like having a Thai wife.


I farted in the bath earlier and started laughing to myself.

"What's so funny?" the wife asked.

"Oh nothing, it's just funny when you fart in the bath and the bubbles tickle your bollocks" I explained.

"Oh yeah, that is funny actually" she replied.

And that's when I knew it was time to send it back to Thailand.


My wife was reading the paper and said, "Tut tut, that's terrible. Another woman in India has been gang-raped and hung."

I replied, "Actually it's 'hanged'. In India, women are hanged. In Thailand, women are hung."


My Thai wife left me the day after I bought her a new necklace.

I was fuming, fifty fucking quid that thing cost me.

The necklace wasn't cheap, either.


I dumped my Thai wife when she told me her balls had dropped.

How was I to know she had just won the lottery?


I keep making stereotypical jokes about my old man and his new Thai bride. He really doesn’t find it amusing… and neither does my Dad.

I was sitting on the train this morning opposite a really sexy Thai bird.

I thought to myself, "Please don't get an erection. Please don't get an erection."

But she did.


I'll tell you what I really hate about my new Thai bride.

She keeps leaving the toilet seat up!


Went to the new Thai restaurant in town, and it's really weird - there's condom machines in both toilets.


"Did you have a good holiday Dave?"

"Amazing. Check out these photos of us at the nudist beach."

"I love your Thai girlfriend, she looks tiny next to you."

"Thanks, but to be fair, she had just been swimming."

A rather attractive woman goes up to the bar in a quiet rural pub. She gestures alluringly to the barman who comes over immediately. When he arrives, she seductively signals that he should bring his face close to hers. When he does so, she begins to gently caress his beard which is full and bushy. "Are you the manager?" she asks, softly stroking his face with both hands. "Actually, no" he replies. "Can you get him for me - I need to speak to him?" she asks, running her hands up beyond his beard and into his hair. "I'm afraid I can't" breathes the barman - clearly aroused. "Is there anything I can do?" "Yes there is. I need you to give him a message" she continues huskily, popping a couple of fingers into his mouth and allowing him to suck them gently. "Tell him that there is no toilet paper in the ladies room."
