HOW TO TELL
Telling jokes is a time-honored tradition. But if you
are going to tell jokes, you should do it right
- Make sure you actually know the joke. Practice
it! Tell it to your kids, your spouse, and your dog.
Trust me, you want to tell the joke a few times
before you do it for real. Nothing will make you
look like a bigger idiot than telling wrong.
2. Scan the internet for jokes to AVOID. Don’t
tell that everybody has heard… if your
joke is all over the internet, then this is a great
joke to AVOID.
3. Shorter jokes are better. I know, I know. You think
you’re a great story teller. But trust me, your audience
will appreciate you for NOT adding all of the colorful
details and fluff. Just tell the joke. Shorten it if you can.
4. The punch line comes last. And I mean last! Nothing should come after the punch-line. Consider this joke done well. Why Did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side.
Now, the same joke when the punch-line is not last.
This is much worse. (I know, that joke is pretty bad on
it’s own, but… you get the idea.)
Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other
side of the road which was on a long block because he
wanted to get to his chicken coop.
See? Punch-lines should be last. Period. NOTHING
comes after the punch. (Except for your silence and their laughter.)
- Keep it clean. And I mean crystal clean. If you wouldn’t
tell it to the Queen of England (who probably doesn’t like
much anyway) then leave it out. Seriously. If you
have any doubt whether you are “crossing the line,” then
don’t tell it. Think of it this way: if you tell a joke to 10 people
and 9 of them laugh, then you’ve still alienated a friend. Don’t do it.
