1.  A man walks into a bar and announces that he’s got a terrific Bikram joke to tell. But, before he can start, the bartender says, “Hold it right there, buddy, I practice Bikram Yoga.”

And the man says, “Okay, I’ll tell it very, very slowly.”


2.  One evening after dinner, a seven-year-old boy asked his father, “Where did Mommy go?”

His father told him. “Mommy is at a Bikram Yoga class.”

The explanation satisfied the boy only for a moment, but then he asked, “What’s a Bikram Yoga class, Dad?”

His father figured a simple explanation would be the best approach. “Well, son,” he said,  “that’s where people tense up all their muscles standing half-naked on one leg in a blazing lit-up room in front of a mirror in 105 degree heat and humidity like in a swamp so that they can be healthy.”

The boy burst out laughing. “Come on, Dad! What is it really?”

3.  A Bikram Yogi walks into a bar with a large green and yellow parrot on his shoulder. The bartender asks, “Where did you get that?”
“In California,” the parrot says, “there are a million of them.”

4.  The lookout on the Battleship Bikram spies a light ahead off the starboard bow. Captain Bikram tells him to signal the other vessel. “I advise you change course 20 degrees immediately!”

The answer comes back, “I advise you change course 20 degrees immediately!”

Captain Bikram is furious. He signals, “I am a captain. We are on a collision course. Alter your course 20 degrees now!”

The answer comes back. “I am a seaman second class, and I strongly urge you to alter your course 20 degrees.”

Now Captain Bikram is beside himself with rage. He signals, “I am a battleship!”

The answer comes back, “I am a lighthouse.”


5.  Why don’t Bikram Yogis drink?

It interferes with their suffering.


6.  Bikram is praying to Krishna. “Krishna,” he prays, “I would like to ask you a question.”

Krishna responds, “No problem. Go ahead.”

“Krishna, is it true that a million years to you is but a second?”

“Yes, that is true.”

“Well, then, what is a million dollars to you?”

“A million dollars to me is but a penny”

“Ah, then, Krishna,” says Bikram, “may I have a penny?

“Sure,” says Krishna. “Just a second.”


7.  For the final exam, the philosophy professor plopped a chair on his desk and wrote on the blackboard: “Using everything we have learned this semester, prove that this chair does not exist.”

Fingers flew, erasers erased, notebooks were filled in furious fashion. Some students wrote over 30 pages in one hour attempting to refute the existence of the chair. One member of the class, a Bikram Yogini, was up and finished in less than a minute.

Weeks later, when the grades were posted, the rest of the class wondered how she could have got an A when she had barely written anything at all.

Her answer consisted of two words: “What chair?”

In just three months, he lost 30 pounds, reduced his waist by six inches and expanded his chest by five inches. Svelte and tan, he decided to top it all off with a sporty new haircut. Afterward, while stepping out of the barbershop, he was hit by a bus.
As he lay dying, he cried out, “God, how could you do this to me?”

And a voice from the heavens responded, “To tell you the truth, Morty, I didn’t recognize you.”

His friend suggested that he visit Bikram who lived nearby. “Simply leave a sample of your sweat outside his door, and he will meditate on it, miraculously diagnose your problem and tell you what to do about it. It only costs 18 dollars.”

Bill figured he had little to lose, so he filled a small jar with sweat and left it outside Bikram’s door. The next day, when he came back, there was a note waiting for him that said, “You have tennis elbow. Soak your arm in warm water. Avoid heavy lifting. It will be better in two weeks.”

Later that evening, Bill started to think that Bikram’s ‘miracle’ was a put-up job by his friend, who could have written the note himself and left it outside the door. So, he decided to get back at his friend. He mixed together some tap water, a yard sample from his dog, and urine samples from his wife and son. To top it off, he included another bodily fluid of his own, and left the concoction outside Bikram’s door with 18 dollars. Then he called his friend and told him that he was having some other health problem and that he had left another sample for Bikram.

The next day, he returned and found another note that said, “Your tap water is too hard. Get a water softener. Your dog has worms. Get him vitamins. Your son is hooked on cocaine. Get him into rehab. Your wife is pregnant with twins. They aren’t yours. Get a lawyer. And if you don’t stop playing with yourself, your tennis elbow will never get better.”


16.  A woman reports her husband’s disappearance to the police. They ask her for a description, and she says, “He takes a Bikram Yoga class every day, he’s toned, tall, amazingly energetic, with thick curly hair.”

Her friend says, “What are you talking about? Your husband is five-feet-four, bald, lazy, and has a huge belly.”

And she says, “Who wants that one back?”


17.  Three friends are killed in a car accident and meet up at an orientation session in Heaven. The celestial facilitator asks them what they would most like to hear said about themselves as their friends and relatives view them in the casket.

The first man says, “I hope people will say that I was a wonderful doctor and a good family man.”

The second man says, “I would like to hear people say that as a schoolteacher I made a big difference in the lives of kids.”

The third man, a Bikram Yogi, says. “I’d like to hear someone say, ‘Look, he’s moving!’”


18.  Bikram walks into a bank and says he wants to borrow $200 for six months. The loan officer asks him what kind of collateral he has. Bikram says, “I have a Rolls Royce. Here are the keys. Keep it until the loan is paid off.”

Six months later, Bikram returns to the bank, repays the $200 plus $10 interest and takes back his Rolls, The loan officer says, “Sir, if I may ask, why would a man who drives a Rolls Royce need to borrow $200?”

Bikram replies, “I had to go to Europe for six months, and where else could I store a Rolls that long for $10?”


19.  A dinner guest at Bikram’s house asks, “How do you prepare your chickens?”

Bikram says, “Nothing special, I just tell them they are going to die.”


20.  At a staff meeting at Bikram’s Yoga College of India, an angel suddenly appears and tells Bikram, “I will grant you whichever of three blessings you choose: Wisdom, Beauty or 10 million dollars.”

Immediately, Bikram chooses Wisdom.

There is a flash of lightning, and Bikram appears transformed, but he just sits there, staring at the table. One of the staff people whispers, “Say something.”

Bikram says, “I should have taken the money.”

Another man arrives at the gates of heaven. “Religion?” “Baptist.”

“Go to room 18, but be very quiet as you pass room eight.”

A third man arrives at the gates. “Religion?”  “Jewish.”

“Go to room 11, but be very quiet as you pass room eight.”

The man says, “I can understand there being different rooms for different religions, but why must I be quiet when I pass room eight?”
St. Peter says, “The Bikram Yogis are in room eight, and they think they are the only ones here.”


23.  A man asks a Bikram Yoga teacher, “Can you teach me to do the splits?”

“How flexible are you?” the teacher asks.

“I can’t make Tuesdays,” the man says.


24.  Bikram is sitting next to a lawyer on an airplane. The lawyer keeps bugging him to play a game which will prove who has more general knowledge. Finally, the lawyer says he will offer Bikram ten-to-one odds. Every time Bikram doesn’t know the answer to one of his questions, he will pay him five dollars. Every time he doesn’t know the answer to one of Bikram’s questions, he will pay him 50 dollars.

Bikram agrees to play, and the lawyer asks, “What is the distance from the earth to the tenth nearest star?”

Bikram says nothing, just hands the lawyer a five-dollar bill.

Bikram asks the lawyer, “What goes up a hill with three legs and comes back down with four legs?”

The lawyer thinks for a long time but in the end has to concede that he has no idea. He hands Bikram 50 dollars. Bikram puts the money in his wallet without a comment.

The lawyer says, “Wait a minute. What’s the answer to your question?”

Without a word, Bikram hands him five dollars.
