Left-handed people are the unicorns of the human world – rare, mystical, and with a magical ability to smudge everything they write. They live in a right-handed world, facing the daily challenge of scissors that don’t cut straight and spiral notebooks designed by someone who clearly never considered the plight of the leftie. These southpaws have adapted to a world that’s not quite made for them, often becoming ambidextrous out of sheer necessity or just giving up and accepting a life of ink-smudged hands. But it’s not all bad; being left-handed comes with its perks, like always having an excuse for your quirky handwriting. And let’s not forget, it’s the perfect setup for some hilarious left-handed jokes.

Now, these left-handed jokes are a different breed. They’re not just puns about being all ‘right’ – they’re a witty celebration of the leftie life. Imagine a world where every can opener is your nemesis and you get a mini workout every time you use a pair of scissors. These jokes playfully poke fun at the daily left-handed struggles, from awkward high fives to the eternal quest for the elusive left-handed desk in a lecture hall. They’re a way to laugh about the little inconveniences and celebrate the uniqueness of being a leftie. After all, in a right-handed world, these jokes are like a secret handshake among the left-handed community.

There once was a right-handed girl who tried her best to be left-handed every now and then. She felt hungry one morning and went to her kitchen to make a ham and cheese toastie.
She thought this would be a good time to practice using her left hand. However things didn’t go well: she cut her finger on her left hand when she tried to slice up the ham and cheese; she burnt her left hand on the toastie maker when she tried to close it; and when she tried to cut her toastie into triangles, they looked more like awkward trapeziums.
The girl, looking at her catastrophic attempt at making a toastie with her left hand, let out a long, steady sigh. Her pet parrot, who spoke fluent English but didn’t understand social norms, asked her why she sighed so heavily. She replied, “My finger is bleeding, my hand is burnt, my toastie looks totally unappetizing and I forgot to get a plate for it as well”.
But she was not going to give up trying that easily.
She went to the kitchen cupboard to get one of her fancy ceramic plates. She carried on trying to use her left hand despite the state it was in. She tried her best to take the top plate from the stack without disturbing the rest, but the lack of dexterity and control in her left hand accompanied by the injuries that it had sustained before ended up in all her expensive ceramic plates toppling out of the cupboard and smashing into pieces on the floor.
The girl, looking at the state of her kitchen, let out a long, deep sigh. Her pet parrot asked her why she sighed so heavily again. She replied, “Now I have no plates to eat my toastie off of and those were very expensive plates. There’s only one potter in the area that makes plates like those and his business is slowly deteriorating; he may not even make these plates anymore.”
But she was not going to give up trying that easily.
The girl put on her coat and shoes and placed her pet parrot on her shoulder before walking to the potter’s “Extravagant Ceramics” shop. She opened the door and looked around the shop. There was nobody behind the counter or in amongst the shop aisles. She tried looking in the office, but there was no one there. She tried calling out, but there was no response. She tried looking in the adjoining warehouse with the high ceiling to no avail until the parrot pecked her cheek to draw her attention and pointed his wing upwards towards the warehouse rafters.
About 30 feet above the floor, hanging from the rafters with a rope around his neck was the old potter whose failing business had unfortunately driven him to suicide.
The girl, looking at the nightmarish sight, particularly the horrific noose around the potter’s neck, let out an extremely long, exasperated sigh, which lasted far longer than the previous two sighs combined.
The parrot asked her why this sigh was the longest yet.
The girl replied, “The longest sigh of a right-handed trying girl? It’s the high potter noose.”
