5 Bridge Jokes

Francis Scott Key Bridge

In Washington D.C., helicopters are often used to monitor the traffic conditions. The Francis Scott Key bridge, named after the man who wrote the national anthem, is frequently jammed.

The bridge's traffic problem is notorious and frequently featured on helicopter TV news shots; among some, it's known as the Car Strangled Spanner.


A friend and I were driving to the mall when we came to a bridge under construction. The road narrowed to one lane, with a red light at either end. We stopped at the red light at on our side and when it turned green we started up again. Halfway through we met another car coming towards us.

The driver leaned out his window and shouted, "I don't back up for idiots!"

Putting his car into reverse, my friend called back, "No problem. I do."


Sean was fishing and it started to rain, so he moved under the bridge for shelter. His pal McGinty saw him and called,

"Sean, me boy, are ye afeared of a few spots o' rain, now?"

Sean replied, "I'm not...the fish come here fer shelter."

The Bridge Fell Down

A blonde and her blonde boyfriend went for a walk along the river.

The blonde walked across alone on a wooden bridge. After crossing the river, the bridge fell down.

She called across to her blonde boyfriend telling him that she couldn't get back.

He yelled in response, "Wait until dark, and I will shine my flash light across the river. Get on the light beam and walk back."

She replied, "No, I'll get half way across the river, and you will turn the light off on me!"

Hiring A Driver

He calls one into his office to interview him. The man says that he can put the wheels right on the edge of a bridge, drive, and not fall off. The employer is very impressed.

He calls another man in. This man says that he can put the wheels halfway off of a bridge, drive, and not fall off. The employer is again very impressed.

He calls the last man in. He says, "I heard what the other two guys said, and I don't think I could match them. I usually drive in the middle of a bridge."
