Put your best joke forward

Go ahead. Make me laugh.

Go ahead. Make me laugh.

Rather than my usual dispensing of invaluable screenwriting wisdom, I’d like to head into the weekend on a slightly more humorous note.

In the comments below, tell me your favorite go-to joke.  The one you automatically think of.

Doesn’t matter if it’s corny or just plain bad. As long as it’s funny.

Here are two of mine. You’ve probably heard them before, but I still like them.

-Three morons start out across the desert. The first one carries a canteen.

“What do you need that for?” the other two ask.

“In case I get thirsty, I can drink some water.”

The second one carries a bag of food.

“What do you need that for?” the other two ask.

“In case I get hungry, I can eat.”

The third one carries a car door.

“What do you need that for? the other two ask.

“In case I get too hot, I can roll down the window.”

-Two fish are in a tank.

One says to the other, “You know how to drive this thing?”

-Now it’s your turn. Come on. Don’t be shy.
