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 jokes 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 soon will see in our list of the best short people 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 the 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. 

However, if you want to laugh, do so, for we tiny people take no offence to that. We know that you, homo grande, are, in fact, envious of our economic size, and these silly jokes 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 short people jokes, and let's giggle reading them together! Sounds like a plan?

You’ve really gotta hand it to short people because they usually can’t reach it anyway.

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.

I crashed into the back of a car at the lights today. A really short guy got out of it and said, “I’m not happy.” I said, “Well which one are you then?”

I was shocked to read in the papers today that a short person had been pickpocketed. I just thought to myself “How could someone stoop so low?”

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.
