86 Dark Humor Jokes

WARNING: Offensive jokes. Only to be kept to yourself or told to friends as sick as you. 

Some people just have really disgusting senses of humor and laugh at things which really shouldn’t be funny. If that’s you, congratulations! You’ve come to the right place. 

If you do have a dark sense of humor, relax. It isn’t necessarily a bad thing, with some studies even showing that those who enjoy dark humor jokes may even be more intelligent than the average person.   

If black comedy does it for you, I’m sure you’ll love this definitive list of over 80 dark, sick and morbid jokes. 

I know we started this list out with a warning, but here’s another one just in case: This is a collection of dark jokes. Dark humor focuses on parts of life we normally don’t like to talk about, such as death, disease, depression and disaster, and attempts to make these things a little less scary by looking at the funny side of them. 

Some may find these jokes offensive, but since this article is labelled “86 jokes so dark we have to warn you twice”, we will assume you’re here by choice. Let’s begin…
