The Use Of Jokes
Funny jokes (what other kind is there?) make people laugh, and laughter is very good for the body, mind, and spirit. Laughter is a sign that people are having a good time, therefore the mood is brightened up for everyone. Jokes can vary in their humor. Some are witty, some are sarcastic, some are dirty, and some are just plain funny. There are different kinds of jokes, such as knock-knock jokes, story jokes, ‘Why did the ___ cross the road’ jokes, question/answer jokes, and others. Funny jokes have evolved into many different forms. Some are obvious, and they’ll usually begin with an off-the-wall question. Some jokes just are a spur-of-the-moment kind of thing. They can be a sarcastic reply, a witty statement or comeback, or just a joke to lighten up the mood.
How did jokes come about?
Lots of funny jokes stem from things that actually happened to someone or something, but in lots of cases, the story has been changed up a bit. Some jokes just come to people’s mind one day, maybe when they’re sitting at the bar, or washing their hair. Jokes are all about wit. The trick to jokes is to have a good punch line. A punch line is the end of the joke, more or less the point of the joke itself. For example the joke: ‘Why did the chicken cross the road? (He had to get to the other side.)’ This is a simple joke, and the statement in parentheses is the punch line. All jokes must be relative to the punch line. Some jokes are made up right at the moment of certain conversation. Someone can say something that may stir a memory or a funny statement in another person’s mind, and that’s where the joke comes from. Often these jokes or comebacks are witty and quick.

Story Jokes: Two guys walk into a bar, which is weird, because you’d think that the second one would’ve seen what the first one did. Question Jokes: How do you know when a drummer is at your door?
