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.

Everyone should memorize 5 - 10 of the "Quick Joke" type. These are great when you have a lull in a conversation right after someone tells a good joke. They don't have to even be that funny, it is the fact that you rattle off 4 in a row that makes them funny.

What do you call a boomerang that doesn't work?
   A stick.

What do you get when you cross a snowman with a vampire?

What lies at the bottom of the ocean and twitches?
   A nervous wreck.

Where do you find a dog with no legs?
   Right where you left him.

Why do gorillas have big nostrils?
   Because they have big fingers.

What do fish say when they hit a concrete wall?

Why don't blind people like to sky dive?
   Because it scares the hell out of the dog.
