Beef Jerky Jokes that Will Make You Laugh

Just because you're serious about the quality of meat you eat doesn't mean you can't tell a few funny beef jerky jokes.

After all, you eat pasture-raised, grass-fed beef because you want to enjoy this world in the most honorable way possible. Making people giggle with a well-told joke is just as noble a cause as eating sustainable, humanely-raised meat products.

Telling a good joke makes you approachable and puts others at ease. Beef jerky jokes let you break the ice when you're talking about more serious snacking topics, like why you seek out humanely raised beef products from farms with eco-friendly farming practices.

But before you get to the, er, beef of this article (the jokes), take a few seconds to see if you're prepared to tell jokes about, well, meat.

How to Tell a Beef Jerky Joke like a Pro

Half of telling a joke is in the delivery. Mumbling, acting nervous, speaking in a soft voice...all of these missteps can all send your audience packing before you ever get to the punchline. So, here are a few tips that can make you a better "cow-median," even if just for one joke.

  1. Let loose. Don't be the rib; be the steak! If you're feeling stiff, so will your audience.
  2. Sound more like a pig than a cow. Pig have many different sounds with texture; a cow has one "mooo-notone" note that it always hits. Don't tell a joke like a cow.
  3. Pause before the punchline. This gives your audience time to chew, swallow, and digest the setup.
  4. Have confidence. Hold your head up high, even if your joke accidentally clears the barnyard.
  5. Believe in your joke! If you don't think it's funny, how will anyone else?
  6. Know your audience. Seriously, not everyone is ready to laugh about meat, so be sure to read the room.
