Did you know that the number of people who enjoy really funny jokes is growing? A joke is basically a social display of comedy where humorous words or actions are used in a very specific and well-defined story context to make other people laugh, typically not intending to take the joke as seriously. It usually involves interaction between two or more characters, usually with dialog, and ends with a punchline. There’s no need for fancy words or complex subject matter, and the point of the joke is to entertain.
One type of really funny jokes is called manifests. These jokes have a clear identification of a plot or story element but do not require the other characters to understand or care about what is happening. They often center on a single, natural object like an apple, a bubble, a coin, a butterfly, or a rock. A good manifestation will contain at least one reference to oxygen atoms or the molecular oxygen molecule. An example might be “The next time you see an apple, you will know what it is”.
The second type of really funny joke is called tongue twisters. A tongue twister is usually a single, odd-looking object. The object will be waving, pointing or scratching and most likely, there will be one or more words written on the tongue of the object. This type of joke is very easy for the audience to identify. A couple of good examples of this type of joke are “I saw a bird, today I wrote the word ‘bird’ on the bird’s tongue”, “He was shoving his tongue out the window, today my tongue was so big I couldn’t get out a word” and “I’ve seen so many tongue twisters, today I wrote the word ‘tongue’ on a tongue twister”. A couple of really funny tongue twisters include “I saw a cat, today I wrote the word ‘cat’ on its tail” and “I saw a dog, today I wrote the word ‘dog’ on its paw”.
Another kind of really funny joke is called a situational humorist. Situational humorists are funny jokes which are appropriate in particular situations. An example might be “The next time you’re in a jam, don’t eat any peanuts. Actually, if I were in a jam, I’d grab any nut I could find”.
Some situations where it would be really good to have these kinds of jokes would be, for example, when you meet somebody for the first time or when you are bored. In fact, sometimes it is much better to have these kinds of jokes prepared, rather than waiting until you are forced to use them. Some situations where situation jokes would not be appropriate would be, for example, when you have a date with your boss or when you are having a conversation with your brother or sister. In short, one really good idea to keep in mind is that the situation or occasion in which the punch lines are intended should determine whether they are funny or not.
A final example of really funny tongue twisters would be, what do you get when you cross your eyes? Well, the answer would be the most famous of all, “You know you just came out of an ice cream parlor”. Yes indeed, just that you didn’t actually see the ice cream going down your throat. The point is that by making your jokes really funny, you will get your point across in the most effective manner possible.
