Hey guys

Just like to tell you something, it might help you, it might not.

Lesson on telling jokes. To give them maximum effect. For a start, there are two main types of jokes, spontantious (one liners, sharp witted comments etc) jokes, and Long (like Iains for example) jokes.

Now, rule 1. When telling a joke you must tell it right first time, if you stutter or miss something out its not funny and you lose all timing, and people get an idea of the joke or get bored. This is one of the problems with Spontantious jokes, sometimes you might come out with a comment intended as a joke, but it comes out wrong and becomes offensive.

Rule 2. Never laugh while or after telling a joke, braking character loses alot of the moment, keeping a straight face while telling a joke is probably half the reason a joke is funnny.

Rule 3. Never give away anything about the punch line in a joke before you give it, for example in a long joke you have to make sure that no-one has an idea what it is going to be about until the very last line, and then they can work it out. For example, i'll take Iains joke again, there could have been any number of endings of that joke, unless you were extremely clever you can't work it out until the very end when he gives the joke.

Rule 4. Try and make your jokes clever, but not too clever, sometimes if a joke is too clever people don't know whats funny about it because you haven't given them enough information so they can find out whats so funny.

Rule 5. Always make sure you don't give away the ending (unless its a one liner) jokes are always best when you work out what is funny about it for yourselves eg look at that "s car go". You could easily spoil that by saying, you know escargos etc etc.

Rule 6. A good spontanious joke, that you can use on a forum is pick up on someones mistake, where they have written something that could be misenterpreted as a different meaning, these can sometimes be the funniest jokes of all provided it is not too vague.

Well, 6 rules is enough, feel free to add your own and try experimenting with different ways of telling jokes here, so people can give their opinion on them

Cheers

Dan

Huh?

Saeway?

I don't get it, too clever for me!

Well yeah i did write it myself, there was alot that i wanted to put in but forgot (hell, there are too many rules!).

Here is a good joke that i found which sticks too the rules:

A young boy and a paedophile are walking into some woods at night. The little boy says "oh, this is really scary", the Paedophile replys "you think thats scary, i have to come back this way, alone!"

Haha, think about that one a while  Smile

Regards,

Dan

Take the F out of WAY



Someone should have said "There is no F in way"
which means "there is no f*c*in way"

Oh dude that is way to clever for me! But now you've explained it!

when you said:

"Someone should have said "There is no F in way"
which means "there is no f*c*in way""

You shouldn't have added "which means "thereis no f***in way"" because although if you are not looking along the right lines you won't get it, for the people who do get it it might be funnier.

You broke Rule 5!

look at that "s car go". You could easily spoil that by saying, you know escargos etc etc.

hehe!

Still a good joke though!

Cheers

Dan
