What does this phrase mean to you:

"to get off a few good ones"?

I've never heard it before.. does anyone know?

Does it refer to telling jokes?

what's the context?

(though I'm pretty sure I can't help)
(I just discover that you can't be too prolific on this website: you can't write two posts within a minute, you have to wait... or is that just me?!)

Well my first thought that it was to do with breaking wind.

Amaia, you're right. You DO have to wait between posts. It hasn't always been like this, but the webmaster found a few people coming on here and posting continuos trash. This has helped reduce such antics. It also helps reduce our fellow Palinites from making errors in posting double comments.

ev: The Free Dictionary says your phrase "to get off a few good ones" can mean any of the following:
1. To manage to tell a few good jokes
2. To land a few good hard punches
3. To make a few strong criticisms

It's interesting that comedians refer to "getting to the punchline",which can obviously only be a boxing/sparring analogy.

BB you're supposed to guess, not google it! ANYONE can do that!

I didn't know it was a guessing game,kazzzz. Okay,I think it probably means,er,breaking wind or farting,to be vulgar,as in the similar well-known expressions : "to blow off a few monsters"; or : "to let off a few cracking ones"

I thought it was something to do with the, er, 'W' word?
