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.

One of the oldest forms of comedy is character driven comedy. This is where you take on the persona of a character and play it up to a fault. Groucho Marx,  Laurel and Hardy, crocodile Dundee, and my favorite:

Dos Equis Man

It is illegal to print his face on paper. It is considered legal tender in many pacific islands.

His mother has a tattoo on her arm that says "Son".

He has served as "Best Man" for grooms he's never met.

If he were to read you a bedtime story you would fall asleep. Forever.

He can whistle in five different languages, including sign language.

He can kill 4 birds with half of a stone, didn't know there was such a thing as half a stone? Neither did the birds.

If he were to sleep with your girlfriend, you would brag to your buddies.

His business card just says "I'll call you."

A cobra once bit his leg. After five days of excruciating pain, the cobra finally died

He has recently confirmed rumors that he was the one who took the bite out of the Apple Logo.

He has won the Lifetime Achievement award... Twice.

He takes down deadly animals without weapons. He has a grizzly bear carpet in his room, the bear isn't dead it is just afraid to move.

Stay thirsty, my friends...


  1. Dos Equis guy really rocks. One of the best commercials in some time.

  2. Lol. These are solid man. I like the last one. Though, I will say some of these feel like Chuck Norris re-hashes...

  3. haha yeah that dude is so badass

  4. That's the kind of buddy I'd like to drink with.

  5. I bet ya he could get free tickets to any concert.


Feel free to share a joke with me!
