The problem with being the "funny one" amongst your friends is that you have to be able to be at least slightly funny on demand. This is not as easy as you might think. The fastest way to get out of an awkward social moment is to drop a joke, the more awkward the moment the less funny the joke has to be. [1] But yuo cant go telling a dead baby joke to your boss and your friends at the pub probably wont like your office supply joke so now you have to memorize enough jokes to get you through any social setting.
Thats what I am here for. To talk you through the theory behind jokes and the basic structure of the joke so you may be able to craft your own joke to suit any situation.

[1]This is called the "Thats what she said" Theory.

The first joke

Why did the chicken cross the road?
To get to the other side!

-- It is classic, but if you tell it to anyone over the age of 10 they will not laugh, but there is a magical window between about age 6 and age 10 where they might not laugh, but if they don't, you can save your self with a come back joke...

Why did the frog cross the road?
It was stapled to the chicken!

So todays lesson is always have 2 jokes ready before you tell 1.
