One of my favorite social past times is telling jokes, light ribbing, making puns, and engaging in word play.
I heard a pretty good joke the other day, and it never fails to get a chuckle from me when I tell it to someone else.
Ask them if they want to hear a joke. (who doesn't?)
After they accept, tell them to say "Knock Knock."
after they say it, ask "Who's there?"
Most people will be very confused as to how they suddenly became the one telling the joke, and many won't know what joke they're telling. Some of my quicker buddies took it in stride and followed up with an actual knock knock joke. Either way, you win. :D
What are some of your favorites?
Reminds me of the name of the ancient Chinese art of humor: Tai Ming
Was that written by the same author as Mysterious Trail In the Sand, Wun Hung Lo?

Today I got one of my coworkers seriously pissed off at me. I began whistling, "The Chicken Dance" and it became stuck in her head.
*sigh* I miss Looney Toon and Three Stooges style comedy. I'm afraid that Family guy and it's ilk has pretty much ruined the pure joy of the simple, and stupid joke.
God said to Adam, "I've got some good news and some bad news. First the good news. I have given you a brain and a penis. The bad news... I've only given you enough blood to work one of them at a time!"
I went to the doc who says "I've got some bad news and some worse news. First the bad news: you have 24 hours to live." I was like "what could be worse than that, doc?" He says well, we been trying to call you since yesterday !
A guy goes to a doctor and says, "Doc, you've got to help me. My penis is orange." Doctor pauses to think and asks the guy to drop his pants so he can check. Damned if the guy's penis isn't orange. Doc tells the guy, "This is very strange. Sometimes things like this are caused by a lot of stress in a person's life."
Probing as to the causes of possible stress, the doc asks the guy, "How are things going at work?" The guy responds that he was fired about six weeks ago. The doctor tells him that this must be the cause of the stress. Guy responds, "No. The boss was a real asshole, I had to work 20-30 hours of overtime every week and I had no say in anything that was happening. I found a new job a couple of weeks ago where I can set my own hours, I'm getting paid double what I got on the old job and the boss is a really great guy." So the doc figures this isn't the reason.
He asks the guy, "How's your home life?" The guy says, "Well, I got divorced about eight months ago." The doc figures that this has got to be the reason for all of the guys stress. Guy says, "No. For years, all I listened to was nag, nag, nag. God, am I glad to be rid of that old bitch." So the doc takes a few minutes to think a little longer.
He inquires, "Do you have any hobbies or a social life?" The guy replies, "No, not really. Most nights I sit home, flip on the Playboy channel, grab a bag of Cheetos..."
That reminds me of the Cheetos commercial that featured a guy who so loved the taste of Cheetos he'd lick the orange dust off another guy's hand. I wonder if the doctor loves Cheetos that much?
