Does anyone out there know any amateur radio jokes? I know my dad knew several, obviously I don't remember a single one. Anyone?

The President Johnson radio.  If you ask me, it's for the birds.  (If you get that one, you are old.)

Okay, it's a stretch, not exactly HAM, but it is RF...

There is a great old one out of QST. A raft is aground on a tiny island. Jeeves, the butler, is the only character you ever see in that cartoon series. Jeeves is sending with a key hunched over a battery powered radio. Out of the little shelter on the raft comes His employer's voice, "Tell them we don't have a QSL manager Jeeves and repeat the QRRR" (Amateur Radio SOS of that time now obsolete).

 

QRRR was an amateur radio distress signal which is now strictly for land use because it's use at sea violates the International Telecommunications Union convention on distress signals.

Though not directly ham related, other than we follow the weather intently. Here is one I just borrowed from @W3TDH, from another post:

Quote

Walt Starling; who was a traffic reporter in the Washington DC Area years ago; once said as a snow flurry began to fall — "For you new people welcome to the nation's capital were a fella with a bad case of dandruff can lean his head out his car window, scratch his scalp, and create a five mile backup. People here cannot cope with white flakes!"

For anyone who has half an hour to listen to it, enjoy! It's a really nice nostalgic ride. Thanks Bill. When I was a kid I used to listen to WOR on 710 kHz in NYC. As it turns out, so did my wife (Brooklyn girl).
