I don't like jokes in general and never even remember the onse which made me laugh.
Nothing is worse when you are invited for a supper and there is one man (it's mostly men who think they entertain people with jokes) who tells jokes non stop and you are supposed to laugh and there is no other conversation at all others than jokes.
When I was still working and we had a meeting, once the subject had been discussed, the jokes started ! One after the other and the joke teller was very proud of himself and probably thought he had a lot of humor.The onse they liked the most were what we call "under the belt" jokes !
After years of marriage you know all jokes of your dear husband by heart and have to listen to them over and over, you are obliged to put at least a smile on your face not to be impolite !
I prefer by far when somebody tells a funny story out of his/her life, children stories can also be very amusing.
People who only have jokes as a conversation seem to me superficial and humorless.
I get quite a lot per email too, I don't even read them, they go immediately in the bin. I recognize the names of the onse who only send me jokes.
Sometimes I like a joke and want to keep it in my mind, but the next day I have forgotten about what it was.
There are only two jokes I always remember and they are real stupid, that's probably why I remember them.
1. What is the difference between a person falling from the first floor or the 10th floor ?
Answer : the one from the first floor makes "boom", "aahhh",
the one from the 10th floor makes "aahhh", "boom" !
2. Two cats meet in the street, one said to the other, you are pregnant again ?? who is the father ? and the other answers : I don't know I had my head in the bin !
I am a real poor joke teller !
