There's an art to telling jokes and there's a psychology behind it all. How do knock knock jokes make you feel? What's it like being you hearing a punchline? Do you laugh hearing a joke in another language even if you don't understand it? AIDS?

This is the circlebroke thread. This is something we need.

I am going to kick this thread off by retiring "oh, honey" as an exclamation. It has been literally one day and I have heard it at least 30 times. I don't know what the fuck made this boom overnight but it's already stale.

Also, knock knock jokes
Everyone bring back knock knock jokes
They're vintage.

Isn't the honey thing from How I Met Your Mother? And it wasn't even that funny there.

In all reality I think my humor tends to be either more the "humor of the situation," theater of the absurd style stuff. I just try to make such strange scenarios that you can't help but laugh. Ever read any Ionesco? Seen a play by him? I try to emulate him sometimes. Not that common of humor, mind you.

Have you read Rhinoceros? I read it for French class, it was lovely. Also: difficult.

I think that the best jokes, like the best murder mysteries, are ones that you look back on and think "wow that was obvious", but it never occurred to you to look at it that way while it was being set up. I don't really have any examples, but you guys know what I mean, don't you?

I got one like that I think.

Funny:
So this husband and wife end up on this desert island. They adapt after a few weeks, even building a lookout tower to better look for any potential rescuers.

Well after a while, another guy ends up on the island, and he and the wife immediately fall for each other. Needing to hide the affair, they devise a plan that will let them partake in a tryst out in the open without the husband being any the wiser.

It's the third guy's turn in the lookout tower one day, so he climbs up to the top and after a little while, he looks down and shouts "Hey! Stop screwing!" The husband and wife shout back at him "We're not screwing!"

Another while passes, and eventually the guy again shouts "Guys seriously! Stop screwing!" The husband and wife again call out "We're not!"

This continues for all of the guy's shift on the tower, and eventually he climbs back down and it's the husband's turn up in the tower.

He climbs up and looks down and says "Huh. From up here it does look like they're screwing!"

I did, and in fact I loved it. In my opinion, I don't think an actual performance of it could do it justice. I mean, those stage directions? "The rhinoceroses become even more beautiful." How the hell do you do that.

This is a real e-mail conversation between my mother and me. Background: we had appraisers in the house today because we're applying for a mortgage refinance. She was home for them, I was not.

I want you to break out the cracked window pane in the family room door. It'll look better gone, than cracked.

Is that what they said? Better gone than cracked?

No, it's what SHE said.

did you just make a “that’s what she said joke?” did you really? really?
