Are you looking for some long and funny Nigerian jokes to tell a girl? Here are some amazing options you can use.

  • A Christian missionary goes to proselytize in Nigeria and gets lost. He begins wandering aimlessly through a thick forest and stumbles upon a lion. He then gets scared the lion will eat him, so he starts praying to God to protect him from the lion. Then, suddenly, he sees the lion praying as well! He gets relieved and tells the lion, "I didn't know you're a believer as well. I'm so glad. For a moment, I thought that you might eat me." The lion responds, "Quiet, please! Don't interrupt my mealtime prayer!"
  • A group of charity workers are sent to Nigeria to see how their program is working. They are walking down a street and see a crocodile with a man's head in its mouth. When they get home and are asked about how their trip went, one of them says, "We can cut all funding. They got Lacoste sleeping bags."
  • A man is on a photo safari in Nigeria. He finds an elephant in distress, lying in the bushes. Upon inspection, he finds that the elephant has a large, sharp rock embedded in the bottom of its foot. He carefully pulls the rock free, and the elephant gets up and saunters away. A decade later, he is back in his hometown when a circus is visiting, and they put on a parade. As the man is watching all the animals go past, he notices and makes eye contact with a large African elephant. The elephant immediately turns toward the man, picks him up in its trunk, slams him on the pavement and then stomps the life out of him. It was a different elephant.

  • A professor in Nigeria is teaching her students how to form English sentences. "Attention, class. I have two words: Cheetah and dandelion. Can anybody use these together in a sentence?" One student raises their hand and answers, "the cheetah is faster dandelion."
  • An American and Nigerian are talking. The American says, 'I like my coffee like I like my wives", to which the Nigerian replies, "from a third world country at a reasonable price?"
  • Buying flowers for your Nigerian village girlfriend is not a problem. The problem is when you get a text from her the next day saying, 'the vegetables you bought me tasted funny.'
  • If Nigeria invades another country, we will leave that country in a state of poverty and despair, where half the population can't read, and the ever-present threat of needless violence blights daily life. Yes, we'll have brought the Nigerian way of life to them.
  • Just a reminder to all married people, if you promised your wife/husband that you would love her/him 24 hours a day, start now.
  • A mad man tells a doctor, "I have a problem, I dream of cows playing football every day." The doctor gives him some medicines. The mad man replies, "I'll start taking the meds tomorrow, today is the finals."

  • Please take a moment to thank and appreciate those guys who dated you in high school. They loved you without makeup, Brazilian hair, with your oversized uniform, ugly school bag, and rubber sandals. My sister, that was true love.
  • Three drunkards from Lagos board a taxi. The cab driver, intent on swindling them, starts the car and then kills the engine a minute later. The drunkards pay him and ask him never to drive that fast again.
  • Two immigrants from Nigeria arrive in the United States and are discussing the difference between their country and America. One of them mentions he's heard that people in America eat dogs, and if they're going to fit in, they better eat dogs as well. So, they head to the nearest hot dog stand and order two 'dogs.' The first guy unwraps his meal, looks at it, and nervously looks at his friend and asks, "which part did you get?"
  • Using a public toilet without a lock is extreme sports; whenever you hear footsteps, you must either sing, clear your throat, or use your leg to wedge the door shut so that they know you are inside.
  • Walking through the jungles of Nigeria, a man comes across a pygmy standing next to a ferocious dead lion. So, the man approaches the pygmy and asks him, "Did you kill that lion?" "Yes", says the pygmy, "I killed it with my club." Impressed by the tiny fellow, the man exclaims, "Wow! How big is your club?" The pygmy looks up at the man and says, "There are about ninety of us."
  • What's the most common type of tea in Nigeria? Poverty.
  • A wife asks her husband, "what are you getting me for our 10-year anniversary?" The husband answers, "I'm taking you to Nigeria." The wife then answers, "wow, that's amazing. I always wanted to go there. Then what you would get me for our 20th?" The husband responds, "I will pick you up."
