I wouldn't call them British. They're classic "bait and switch" jokes. (You think I was talking about one thing and meant another.)

I'm thinking the Godzilla one could use more, 'bait' before the 'switch'. That would build the story up so the unexpected punchline hits harder. I'll think about it. I over-think everything I create, including humour.

I didn't even read your post, Hagart.

I was talking about some others in the thread. I really dislike them, they are all so.. linear.

Oh you're originally from Great Britain?
I'm half British myself. My dad's side of the family is from England. Though neither I or any of my american relatives have the accent except my Nana. She has a small accent.

(FACE PALM)

My jokes aren't working today. There's nothing worse than having to explain why a joke is funny, so I won't.
I really hope someone chimes in and tells me they get it even if it's not funny, but at least understand what I was trying doing there.

Helloooo!!!!..

It's just not funny, alright?

I understood and thought it was funny. (No, Guitar, he's not originally from GB.) My only issue is that in-law jokes are a bit played-out these days. But it made me laugh! :D

After careful research on paraprosdokians from tvtrops.org, learning about "the rule of three", and knowing that in-law jokes are too generic, I crafted a better version that scientifically speaking should be humorous. :geek:


The other day, I turned on the TV to watch a Godzilla movie. I saw a larger-than-life character screeching incoherent sounds as news reporters gawked in horror, helpless to stop the rampage on America. After the Sarah Palin speech, the movie started.

You sound just like Minnesotans, when my family was up there Canadians all thought we were from Alberta :lol: You really need better coinage and to really declare your independence from Britain and nationalize all the crown lands in your country so do we need to.

Lame joke: I took a friend out snipe hunting and asked him to hold the bag, he said no you hold it.

I didn't know what "Snipe Hunting" was, so I had to look it up. (I think I get it... because both of them know it's a prank or something... I don't know.) I'll attempt my own horrendous joke now from what I learned in a 3 minute Wikipedia lesson about what it is:

A group of camping college kids told a freshman to go Snipe Hunting, but to their disappointment, he only returned with a lousy Sasquatch.

There was a little play on words there too, but it's horrid. I doubt any Snipe Hunt joke has ever been successful in the history of civilization!

Sometimes BAD jokes are GOOD fun though. :D


I agree that Canada needs to cut the umbilical cord from The Queen Mother. Humor is the best way to expose truth isn't it? Offensive comedians speak harsh truth, but overly-venerated politicians lie through their teeth.

I didn't find it funny, then I realized you meant glass. In my country, glass means ice cream and glas means glass.

It would be crazy if ice cream tastes like blood.
