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.

Yo Mama

Popularized by black youth in the 70s and 80s yo mama jokes have become a mainstay in the adolescent development process.

Yo mama so poor
Yo mama so stupid
The basis of a yo mama joke is that it is both disparaging and from the point of view of a 10 - 16 year old. You can often make these funnier by breaking out of this norm.

Stephen Hawking
Another nice trick is to bring in elements of pop culture:

Yo mama so easy
Just remember that in the end every boy loves his mama.
