CRINGE-WORTHY JOKE OF THE WEEK (Volume 2)

in funny •  last year


"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).

Here it is, the Cringe-Worthy Joke of the Week:

What’s the difference between a poorly dressed man riding a tricycle and a nicely dressed man riding a bicycle?

Attire! 😂

Oooh!

·

I know! It's so bad.

·
·

Haha.

I like short corny jokes! One of my earliest posts showcased 10 one liners.

Thanks for sharing yours, and always remember, you can tune a piano but you can't tuna fish!

·

They're definitely not everyone's "cup of tea" but I'm glad you enjoyed it! Good one by the way...is that from Groucho Marx?

·
·

Thanks, I think it is! Here's another of his:

Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.

Love it, @kenny-crane! I like the play on words!

I listen to my custom comedy station on Pandora app in my car more than anything else.

·

I LOVE good stand up comedy. A friend of mine and I have been to both Zanies and Second City in Chicago...we enjoyed ourselves way more at Zanies. Who's your favorite comedian? I liked Carlin.

Came here for a bad joke....was not disappointed.

·

Ouch! These kinds of jokes aren't for everyone.

·
·

No no, I meant that in a good way!

·
·
·

Oh, good! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

·
·

I must agree with your premus. We have had our sence of humer remove by the Government.

I love to hear jokes, BUT... I am the worst joke teller ever. I either crack myself up and no one else found it funny, or I get to the end and forget the punchline.

·

I have the exact same problem but it does get easier with practice. I actually want to go to an amateur open mic night and try my hand at stand up comedy. I have to work my way up to that though!

Fnar Fnar, to keep up with the bicycle theme
What do you call a Nun on a bike?
A cyclist....... Budum tsch!

·

Ha! Thanks for the comment and the joke Budum....tsch! : )

heh heh
thanks for keeping the humor coming

·

Thanks! I'd like to keep this up at least once a week. I think this is about all my readership can handle. : )

·
·

I could handle it 3x a week! not nearly enough jokes in my world ;-)

·
·
·

I have a storehouse of them @natureofbeing. : )

·
·
·
·

hehe can't wait

Great initiative to bring humor! The joke was actually better than expected! :) You, sir, deserve to be followed!

·

Glad you enjoyed it @writingamigo! I'll be doing this once a week from now on, very likely on Monday because people really need to laugh on Mondays. : )

·
·

True! Looking forward to it!

😂 😂 😂 😂 😂

Hahhaaaaa. I like it. I love Christmas bon-bons for this reason, they have the best bad jokes ever. I'm pretty sure they have all be collected by a secret society of ridiculously dorky dads meeting in basements and garages once a year to record them all and send them off to the elves. They are probably called the Buffoons (Brilliantly UnFunny Fraternity Of Old Nitwits Society). I bet they drink port!
I like this joke: There are two fish in a tank. One of them says to the other, 'How do we operate the flamethrower?'

There's nothing wrong with posting on Fark.com. I loved it when I was younger.

·

I was referring to Facebook. What is Fark?

·
·

Just kidding. It's a humorous news aggregation site.

·
·
·

Now I have to check it out! : )

xD we call those "dry jokes" in Portugal

·

Yes! I love all jokes but especially the dry ones. : ) Thanks for your comment @kanoptx
