What makes a funny joke

The incomparable Victor Borge

Why this link here?

Because Foxnews did not miss an occasion of being ridicule.

And because my internet is dysfunctional and i can’t accede to the specific page.


They are barely a news show. The do very little investigating. One step above a guy looking up stuff on the internet and reposting it

But FOX is an American Tragedy, nothing funny about them or what they’ve done to our country.

I can prove it, remember F = (W x T / IQ) + ZXZ, check it out:

F = (W x T / IQ) + ZXZ ~ ‡fi›‹›°‡fl·—°°±‚·‚°‡›‡fi›€fi‹€‡flfififl‚°·°—‚·—‚‡°‡·›‡€Á‰ÎÁˆˇ´·‡ˇ∏ÒÁ◊ıÔÓ
Look at that, it even blew up the funny bone formula.

oops forgot, a hat tip to Cuthbertj #4

Now I remember where I have seen that.

This is the chemical code bacteria use to reach “quorum sensing” and become virulent all at the same time.

One morning a husband returns to the cabin after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap.

Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out, since it is such a beautiful day. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and reads her book.

Along comes a Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says," Good morning, Ma’am, what are you doing"?

“Reading a book,” she replies, (thinking, “Isn’t that obvious”?)

“You’re in a Restricted Fishing Area,” he informs her.

“I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing, I’m reading.”

“Yes, but you have all the equipment. I’ll have to write you up a ticket.”

“For reading a book”? she replies.

“You’re in a Restricted Fishing Area,” he informs her again.

“But officer, I’m not fishing, I’m reading.”

“Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I’ll have to write you up a ticket and you’ll have to pay a fine.”

“If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,” says the woman.

“But I haven’t even touched you,” says the Game Warden.

“That’s true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.”

“Have a nice day ma’am,” and he immediately departed.

MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It’s likely she can also think.


Not sure I even want to take the time to figure out the why,
I’m too busy laughing !

Well played.

What makes a funny joke even better is when it is strictly improvisational and the audience is taken on a “joyous ride”.


Is this a joke or should it be exchanged about other where ?

Why are women more important than men to the human species?

It’s very simple: put 100 women and 1 man on a desert island. Come back 9 months later and you will have dozens of children.

Put 100 men and 1 woman in place, and 9 months later you will have at most 1 child, with the added bonus of dozens injured.

It is a weird evolutionary quirk. I get it that women are vulnerable during pregnancy and therefore need men, but why be weaker in general? What’s the advantage?

As intelligence is more valued, men are seeing a future they might not like. We will need to be like birds, showing off our beautiful plumage for a brief moment of pleasure, then back to uselessness.

Female mammals are not weaker than men, for one they live longer.
But men are physically stronger because they were the hunters who brought in the food while the females cared for the young. Natural selection always selects for maximum efficiency. Women don’t need muscles, they need good health to feed their offspring.

In the non-mammalian world things are drastically different. In the small world, the female is often the much laerger , stronger partner.

Some females of the Arachnida like the Black Widow eat their males after mating. Some females of the Mantis Insecta like the Praying Mantis eat their males while mating.
This is the most expedient way to start a high-protein diet for the gestation period.

Something came before hunting most likely.

It definitely qualifies as a joke, and it is 100% accurate, but humanists can be easily offended by even the mildest jokes involving women as they are uncomfortable with biological facts and tend to see sexism everywhere.

Far Right extremists practically invented the new use of “offended”.

Each time I see the title and read through the posts, my mind keeps going back to Data.

So what makes a funny joke? Data fails with even understanding Guinan’s joke. She’s funny, but then again, look who’s playing Guinan.

Here are some of England’s funniest humorists.
