"A wonderful thing about true laughter is that it just destroys any kind of system of dividing people.” - John Cleese
I began Cringe-Worthy Joke of the Week on another social media site that begins with the letter “F” and shall remain nameless. This idea was born when I discovered that people just weren’t telling jokes anymore. We need jokes now more than ever because the ultimate antidote to both seriousness and self-absorption is h-u-m-o-r.
I’ve noticed lately that the telling of jokes (especially wonderfully corny/cringe-worthy ones) is an art that begs to be revived before it completely flat-lines. This is how the idea for this weekly series was born.
Humor is a survival mechanism, it’s the relief-valve of humanity, a means of artistic expression, and a way to bring us all together. Laughter truly is the universal language.
Share a joke of your own with us in the comments below (it might be used in future posts).
