Being of somewhat an abbreviated stature myself, I know all too well the jokes and the giggles such a caliber causes to people around me. No, I cannot reach the upper shelf, ha-ha, and yes, I can fit into a box, same as a cat, thank you. However, if the giants think their lame roasts for short people scorn me, they are absolutely wrong because, as would all the short people agree, being of such a size is, in fact, a blessing. 

Just think about being able to stretch your legs on a flight, buy cheaper child-sized clothes, and be able to fit even in the smallest of spaces (which comes in handy more often than the tall ones would think)! It is also a great pretext for some quality jokes, as you will soon see in our list of the best short person jokes. 

So, besides being able to inspect every person's nostril hygiene habits, being short, as everything in life, does also have its shortcomings. But, compared to the pains of being tall, they aren't as dreadful or as hindering to your existence. For instance, us being closer to the ground might mean that we are closer to the various kinds of soil-dwelling bacteria, but at the same time, it just proves that all short people are inherently down-to-earth. And this is not a phrase you could match with someone of grand stature! Actually, when you think about the drawbacks of being short a while longer, it starts to seem that they are actually big pros in navigating life, and just think about all the hilarious jokes about short people!

However, if you want to laugh, do so, for we tiny people take no offense to that. We know that you, homo grande, are, in fact, envious of our economic size, and these silly insults for short people prove that once again. Moreover, we also enjoy these silly jokes, so why not laugh together at them, even if it's a long-distance affair? So, scroll down below to check out our list of the funniest jokes for short people, and let's giggle reading them together! Sounds like a plan?

Lol. It actually makes my day when somebody asks me to hand them something from a tall shelf in the grocery store. Not happy they can't reach, just happy to help.

What is the History of Roasts?

Well, you know, it went probably like this – someone got bored with eating raw meat and decided to hold it for a while over a fire... Oh, wait, we’re not talking about those kinds of roasts, are we? 

For the other kinds of roasts, the comedic ones, their history is documented much better, and you’ll be happy to know that the first official roast took place as early as 1949 at the New York Friars Club

You’ll also be glad to know that the form of a good old comedic roast hasn’t changed much since, and same as it was back then, it is still about a specific individual taking jokes at their own expense for the amusement of a wider audience. The only change these roasts took over the years is that they’re no longer confined to clubs or venues but can be easily done on the Internet. Case in point: the legendary roasts by Wendy’s, we’re sure you remember.

That said, roasts of the yesteryear used to be much harsher than they are these days, and that’s a much-welcomed change! Just take a look at the roasts for short people on this list and see how innocent and kind they really are.

When do Short People don’t Like Jokes?

Like tall people, short people usually don’t mind lighthearted, well-meaning jokes and might even make such a quip about themselves. However, there definitely are some instances when individuals might not like jokes about short people, such as: 

The joke is disrespectful. If you’re about to make short person jokes, make sure they’re harmless and well-meaning. After all, a joke is to make people laugh rather than offend them.

When the jokes turn into insults for short people, funny roasts for short people always balance on a thin line of becoming insulting. Know the difference between a roast and an insult before you share one publicly.

Sensitive topics. If a person is clearly insecure because of their height, you might wish to abstain from trying to amuse them with jokes about short people altogether. Better safe and sorry!

A good rule of thumb about these roasts for short people would be this: would you find it funny if one of these jokes were addressed to you? If the answer is yes, you’re probably safe to share your ingenious quip!

Especially if you are 5'3 and have a boss that is over 6'5. Was looking at some papers while walking in the office and nearly face planted into his junk. That would have been very bad.

This reminds me of the Terry Pratchett character, Casanunder. He carried a ladder round with him to tackle his taller conquests! LOL

Or in the movie theater where there are plenty of seats but the tallest person in the theater sits in front of you. No, sitting right down front makes me nauseous.

Yes! Except my feet grew 1/2 a size for each pregnancy. I’m now a gigantic size 5 1/2. Trying to find “ grown- up lady” shoes is fun. Or sneakers without sparkles, Velcro or Barbie.
