A Clever and Amusing Headline Goes Here
Years ago I caught comic and current Twitter icon Chris Hardwick at the Improv in L.A. During one of the best bits of his set, he told the audience that he was tired of the Germans getting a bad rap when it came to their sense of humor, and so he wanted to know if anyone wanted to hear a "German joke."
The joke he told was as follows:
Peaches have no intrinsic value and there is no God."
Well, along those lines, there's now a website entirely devoted to "anti-jokes," and it's pretty damn hysterical.
Just a few examples:
"A duck walks into a bar, the bartender says, 'What'll it be?' The duck doesn't say anything because its a duck."
"Your friend is so gay, he has consensual sex with other men. and enjoys it."
"Why was six afraid of seven?
It wasn't. Numbers are not sentient and thus incapable of feeling fear."
"What do you tell a woman with two black eyes?
Domestic violence is a crime. She should leave her abusive partner and seek help."
"What's worse than biting into an apple and finding a worm?
Getting raped by a giant scorpion."
