The Ultimate Secret to Writing Humor for the Internet

[High Praise! to Hatless in Hattiesburg]

As someone who spends WAY too much time thinking about how to be funny (as opposed to actually BEING funny) I found these hilarious:

“Three people of different nationalities walk into a bar. Two of them say something smart, and the third one makes a mockery of his fellow countrymen by acting stupid.”

“Three blokes walk into a pub. One of them is a little bit stupid, and the whole scene unfolds with a tedious inevitability.”

Q: “How many members of a certain demographic group does it take to perform a specified task?”

A: “A finite number: one to perform the task and the remainder to act in a manner stereotypical of the group in question.”

There once was an X from place B,
Who satisfied predicate P,
The X did thing A,
In a specified way,
Resulting in circumstance C.

Q: How many geeks does it take to ruin a joke?

A: You mean nerd, not geek. And not joke, but riddle. Proceed.

I suppose I could add

Q: Why did the person of specified characteristic perform a common task incorrectly?

A: Because they’re stupid.
