And one that's told every passover;
As King Arthur inspected his troops, he noticed that in the midst of all his men in shining armor, one man sat in dull, even rusty armor. King Arthur angrily turned to his lieutenant and demanded, "Ma nishtana ha-leilah ha-zeh?"
The quote translates to "Why is this night different from all other nights?" a question asked as part of a Jewish Passover dinner.

Try this one: An inmate rapes a caretaker, and escapes from the insane asylum. Headline: "Nut screws and bolts".

Nononono. He raped two women in a laundry. "Nut screws washers and bolts."

An old favorite of mine, from Bennett Cerf:
"A South Korean named Syngman Rhee had a brother who was a reporter for Life Magazine in the days when that magazine was still flourishing. Life Magazine sent him into the wilds of Africa to track down a story. And nothing was heard from the reporter for weeks.
"At last, very much alarmed about the missing reporter, Life magazine hired a team of reporters to go searching for him a man and a woman. They trekked through the jungle, they journeyed through town after town and at last their persistence was rewarded with success.

"The lady exclaimed with great joy: 'Ah, sweet Mr. Rhee of Life, at last I've found you!'"
Fans or the attentive children of fans of Victor Herbert and/or Nelson Eddy will understood that one.
