Please send us some Konkani jokes and we will gladly publish them here.

Some of favorite Konkani Tips : 

* If you are a true Konkani you will have at least 10-20 names ending with maam and maayi on your mobile.

* The world can sing a song, but we can eat a song. Batata Song

* The amount of luggage that we carry to our gaanv always doubles when we come back.

* We don't have family trees; we have family Forests (everyone is related to other in way or the other).

* For the world DDT is a pesticide, for us it is Daat Dali Toi.

* A Konkani tea stall in China would be named as Phunkun Phukun Pee.

* We don't need any MBBS degree, just fall ill and the entire family will start acting like qualified doctors.

* During community gathering we speak more Konkani than we speak at home.

* In weddings the Pacchis and Maayis are less concerned about the wedding couple and more about hooking up young and prospective guys and girls present there.

* In Devasthan javan no matter how full your stomach is, there is always a place reserved for Godse or Doodhpak.

* If the dish neither contains grated coconut nor seasonings of ghee or coconut oil, then it is definitely not a Konkani dish.

* We buy 200 Bibbos and make Bibbe Upkari of 150 Bibbos. 50 we eat while peeling.

* One Konkani Pachi or Maayi is equivalent to entire Google.

* Ambulee, Chakkulee, Surnalee are not the name of Chinese men.

* Upaas is the only day when we eat more than any normal day.
