Unfunny on Parade
« on: April 08, 2008, 10:20:55 AM »
Comedians tell their favoritest jokes! Most of them are garbage! Weirdly enough, the George Carlin joke is one of the few I chuckled at.

Also, I hope Nick DiPaolo gets randomly stabbed on the subway. And just to subvert his expectations, make the stabber a white guy.

Nick DePaolo's joke is a blatant rip off of this Onion article:  http://www.theonion.com/content/news/black_guy_asks_nation_for_change

I'M STARTING A YOUTUBE CAMPAIGN TO END THIS JOKE THIEF'S CAREER, WHO'S WITH ME?

I liked John Oliver's, and David Wain. And that's about it.

I liked John Oliver's and I laughed at Seth Meyers' when I originally heard it.  Otherwise, it's a safe bet the front page of the Post was funnier than this section.

In context the Louis CK joke is hilarious. That's the problem with most of those jokes though, the best ones in that are one line jokes and single line jokes have a low limit to how funny they can be. Of the one liners, the Dave Attell joke is my favorite but reading something like that really doesn't translate funny.

"Jim Florentine

Classy.

Classiness runner-up:

Quote from: Robert Duchaine
Almost all serial killers are men. That's 'cause women like to kill one man slowly over many, many years.

That's the kind of joke that'll help you out on, say, a first date!

I found these mildly amusing:

"My uncle is in a coma - he's living the dream" (Tomi Walamies)

"Have you heard they're doing a sequel to 'Brokeback Mountain'?" "No, what's it called?" "Brokeback Mountain 2" (David Wain) 

I found these slightly amusing:

"Cellphones are like a dog's nipples. You don't have to shout into them!" (Emo Philips)

"My girlfriend said, 'I hate it when you finish my sentences.' So I said, 'Period' " (Sean Keane)

Yeah, I liked Emo Philips's Joke too— because it's true!
