    I think you'd be better off trimming the list, keeping only 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
    10, 13, 14, and 21.

    Hi, Rich. I cracked up telling most of them to my 12 year old daughter (a
    couple were omitted). She was not as amused, but a couple got giggles.

    Thanks, and Happy Holidays

    A Buddhist, a Zoroastrian, and a Wiccan walk into a bar. The bartender says,
    "You guys are in the wrong joke."

    Mike T. posts to some newsgroups.
    The other readers say,
    "You are posting jokes in the wrong newsgroups."

    "Is this the Philosophy Department?"
    "Yes, but then again, No"

    If a woman makes a statement in the forest,
    and there is no-one to hear her,
    is she still wrong?
  7. Seeing as how my favourites were 7 and 17, I guess it proves that
    there's no accounting for tastes :)


    When geese fly in an inverted V formation, why is one arm of the V
    longer than the other?

    It has more geese in it!

    That's kinda funny, for some odd reason. I guess it's so unexpected.....

    What is?
    Did you perhaps want to leave some context _before_ your _reply_ to it?
    Such as:

    Anyway, you say it's ...

    Vaguely reminiscent of the "Bernard Righton" (a diametric antithesis to
    Bernard Manning, who is an ignorant and offensive racist, sexist, and
    everything-else-ist bigot) joke:

    (needs to be said with a broad Yorkshire accent for full effect)

    A Jew, a Chinaman, and a Pakistani walk into a pub.
    What a perfect example of a racially integrated society.

    Bernard Righton is a character of the actor John Thompson, who for
    example also plays the host of 'Jazz Club', and professor Denzil
    Dexter, on /The Fast Show/.

    The 'unexpected' is the essence of humor. That and pain.

    The two main tools of humor are surprise, pain, and insult.

    No, wait! That's three!

    The three main tools of humor are surprise, pain, and insult. And indignity!

    No, wait again! That's four!

    Among the *main* tools of humor are surprise, pain, insult, and indignity.

  11. Scott Adams (of Dilbert fame) suggests that all humour combines at least two
    of the following:


    Rather a good list, I think.

    I'd say that without more than a bit of "rocognizability" the rest don't
    matter. Humor is all about making the ordinary look extraordinary.
    Dilbert wouldn't be at all funny if we hadn't seen the PHBs in life!

    Shit you not, my 12 year old daughter decided that is to be her Halloween
    costume this year. Yes, they begin planning these things this early....

    Alice, Dogbert, and Catbert are my favorites. A razor filled, toxic,

    Then I guess it's not necessary to read the posts of ignorami who use
    obscenities to express their profound stupidity and arrogance.

    I met an engineer at the SFO Hilton bar (when it was still there) who met
    the gang. Yep, Alice looked like Alice, and Wally... The PHB had been
    transferred to remain anonymous, but according to him still worked at PB.

    ....Catbert reminds me too much of some senior management some years back.
    *scarry* stuff.

    What? ...not scarry enough fo you? Perhaps Rummy would be more your

    Were that the case, I'd invite her in for a drink!
  20. Au contraire. Humor, as with art and music, exists to challenge
    prediction. All Scott's items challenge prediction. We value them
    because prediction is our main evolutionary advantage.
