There's a whole lotta jokes & stories out there that have been blown out of Glasgow with the Clydeside smog. You might have heard some from Billy Connolly, or been emailed them from one of your Scottish mates or relatives.
The ones I've listed here are mainly examples of word plays, Glasgow jokes that use the way Glaswegians speak, our turn of phrase, the patter we've applied to change the Queen's English beyond recognition just for a wee laugh.
Don't worry if you're not from round these here parts and don't understand these Glasgow jokes or find them funny - you really need to have come from here or have learned the Glesca patter to pick them up, so really this page is mainly for the expats etc. out there.
As always, if you've got any of your own Glasgow jokes, feel free to fire them over to me and I'll list them here.
