Amish have a sense of humor

amish tell jokesAmish enjoy jokes like any other people–which shouldn’t come as a surprise.  Spending a lot of time around family and friends, as the Amish do, provides a perfect venue for laughs.

Some Amish are quite witty.  Others enjoy puns.  Amish tell general jokes as well as jokes about themselves.

Amish have a healthy sense of humor.  They realize the sometimes stark difference in their lifestyle, and that of the outside world.  They know that we non-Amish find certain things about Amish life amusing.

At Amish America, we often hear jokes from Amish friends.  Here’s an example of the Amish sense of humor.
