jokes about jokes..

Are sometimes funnier than the jokes themselves.

From Something Awful, jokes with realistic endings.

I don't know why I found these so funny that I literally had tears in my eyes from laughing. I think the point was supposed to be that they're not funny. Anyone besides me laugh?

I bet you can make up a few of your own.

A woman's car breaks down on a lonely country road, late at night. She goes to the only house in sight, where a simple old farmer answers the door.

"Well, you can stay the night, but you'll have to sleep with my two sons, it's the only place there's room for you." She agrees.

The woman sleeps in between the two naive, innocent country youths. Halfway through the night, she wakes one of them up and whispers: "You can have sex with me, but you have to wear one of these things or I'll get pregnant." He does so, and they have sex.

An hour later, she wakes up the other young man and says the same thing: "You can have sex with me, but you have to wear one of these things or I'll get pregnant." He does, and they have sex.

The next morning the woman calls a tow truck and leaves.

A month later, the two country boys were out hoeing the field. One says to the other: "I wore that thing when I had sex with that woman, and removed it immediately after we completed intercourse. I suppose she didn't get pregnant."

I laughed my ass off reading those. I think it's the setup that makes it so funny. Well, obviously it's the setup that makes what should be an unfunny joke funny. But, if I could figure out what it is about that that makes it so funny, I'd bottle and sell it.

I found some of these to be funny in the same way.

Three guys walk into a bar. The fourth one ducked. Then he took his friends to the emergency room because the bruises on their foreheads looked pretty nasty. The hospital kept them overnight for observation because of the potential for a concussion.

Later, they filed a claim with their medical insurance provider.

What do you call a boomerang that doesn't come back?

A Stick.

It still makes me laugh....

Two guys are walking down the street when they see a dog licking his privates.

One guy says, "I wish I could do that."

The other guy is kind of creeped out by this, and there's a brief, uncomfortable silence as he tries to think of a way to change the subject. Finally he says, "So, did you see the new episode of 'The Simpsons' last night?"

Two brothers are upstairs in their bedroom getting ready for breakfast.

"You know what?" says one, "I think it's about time we start swearing. When we go downstairs for breakfast I'm gonna say damn and you say ass."

The other brother agrees with enthusiasm.

The mother walks into the kitchen and asks the brothers what they want for breakfast.

"Give me some damn Cheerios."

WHACK! The boy runs upstairs crying his eyes out. She looked at the other boy and asked with a stern voice, "And what do YOU want for breakfast, young man?"

"Frosted Flakes"

Him: No.
