In honor of the woeful 0-5 Lions, the following is a compilation of the greatest jokes ever created at their expense, starting with my all-time personal favorite courtesy of one, C.J. Karchon. Enjoy!
Little David was in his 5th grade class when the teacher asked the children what their fathers did for a living. All the typical answers came up-fireman, policeman, salesman, etc., but David was being uncharacteristically quiet in his seat. Naturally, the teacher asked him about his father.
David slowly raised from his slumped posture and reluctantly responded. "My father's an exotic dancer in a gay bar and takes off all his clothes in front of other men. Sometimes, if the offer's really good, he'll go out to the alley with some guy and make love with him for money."
The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other children to work on some coloring, and took Little David out in the hallway to ask him, 'Is that really true about your father?'
'No,' said David. "He plays for the Detroit Lions, but I was too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids."

Detroit Lions News Flash
Lions football practice was delayed on Monday for nearly two hours.
One of the players, while on his way to the locker room happened to look down and noticed a suspicious looking, unknown white powdery substance on the practice field. Head coach Rod Marinelli immediately suspended practice while the FBI was called in to investigate.
After a complete field analysis, the FBI determined that the white substance, unknown to the players, was the goal line. Practice was resumed when FBI Special Agents decided that the team would not be likely to encounter the substance again.

A man inherited a little over $1 billion dollars. He had three sons. He told his sons that since he now had all this money, he would like to know, what each of them would like to have. He stressed that MONEY was no object.
His first son said that he had always wanted a Jaguar. The father went out, and since money was no object, bought him 7 Jaguars in different colors, so that he would have a different one to drive every day of the week.
His second son said that he always wanted a motorcycle. So the father went out, and again since money was no object, bought him 30 new motorcycles,10 dirt bikes, 10 hogs, and 10 touring bikes, so he would have a different bike to ride every day of the month.
His third and youngest son was only 8 years old. So the little guy said that he simply had wanted a Mickey Mouse outfit. So, money being no object, his father went out and bought his son the Detroit Lions.
