How to create your own jokes

Ever wanted to create your own jokes? The best way to begin is to indulge in the simplest form of humor – ‘deviation from the normal`.

For example: You start telling a joke about an elephant. You say: “There was this he-elephant, and he wanted to get married.”

Your audience is already thinking of a she-elephant as the bride

You say: “And then it falls in love with an ant”

Your audience is suddenly interested. A smile erupts on their faces

You say: “So, the he-elephant carries the ant in his palm and they go meet his parents.”

Your audience is keen to know what will happen next. They know it can`t get worse than the parents not agreeing

You say: “As soon as the he-elephant tells his parents about his love for the ant, they agree for their marriage.”

Your audience is now left wondering. At this point they have the highest level of interest in your joke

You say: “The happy he-elephant walks up to his father and gives a high-five!”

The way you said the last line tells your audience that it`s the punch line and they start thinking…and soon realize that the ant is dead and they start laughing

————X————–X—————

To be able to tell a good ‘deviation from the normal` joke one has to have strong ‘lateral thinking` which, obviously will also help at solving work and personal problems.

Here is one question to test your lateral thinking prowess –

One fine day, many good-for-nothings start to play cards on the roadside. The money being betted is large and the game is pretty serious. Suddenly one of the men accuses the dealer of cheating. One being accused in front of everybody the dealer brandishes a knife and kills the man. One of the on-lookers calls the police who promptly interview everybody who was playing the cards at the time. In the end, no man was arrested or charged with murder. Why?

  1. stop joking on women, because i have heard men can tolerate jokes on their wife but not on their daughters… 🙂

  2. @ all: Ambiga got it right first…as did many others. One of you even mailed me the right answer.

    As has been said: The dealer, who was arrested for the murder, was a lady.

  3. kindly discount the late re…

    well, its lateral thinking right? so if we know the answer is ‘female…’ then we aren’t even thinking lateral… and right answer? this IS lateral thinking. how can there be a correct answer!
    ….

    mine goes here:

    One fine day, many good-for-nothings start to play cards on the roadside. The money being betted is large and the game is pretty serious. Suddenly one of the men accuses the dealer of cheating. One being accused in front of everybody the dealer brandishes a knife and kills the man. One of the on-lookers calls the police who promptly interview everybody who was playing the cards at the time. In the end, no man was arrested or charged with murder. Why?

    1. the cops wanted to interrogate the men in private. so they arrested everybody for GAMBLING and then produced the murder case later
    2. the police INTERVIEW EVERYBODY WHO WAS PLAYING CARDS AT THAT TIME. the murderer (dealer) fled the scene before the cops arrived and only the remaining guys were playing cards then.
    3. the dealer brandishes the knife, the sight of which kills the victim, a heart patient himself. so the police can only arrest him for possession of weapon, attempt to murder and culpable homicide not amounting to death…

  4. There was a boy wanting to know the 3 letters of the alpherbet so he asks his mam she says go away then he hears his dad shout 180 then his says nanananana then his brother says im driving a car.The next day his teacher asks him what are the first 3 letters in the alpherbet

  7. A blonde goes into a nearby store and asks a clerk if she can buy the TV in the corner.

    The clerk looks at her and says that he doesn’t serve blondes, so she goes back home and dyes her hair black.

    The next day she returns to the store and asks the same thing, and again, the clerk said he doesn’t serve blondes.

    Frustrated, the blonde goes home and dyes her hair yet again, to a shade of red.

  20. there was once a boy who lived in a house who went to st benets school in ouston oneday he asked his teacher if he could go to the toilet the teacher said not until you say the alphebet so it went like this A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O Q R S T U V W X Y Z THE TEACHER WENT WHERE IS THE P and the the boy said its running down my leg.

  21. Sorry for my rudeness, but these jokes aren’t funny 90% of the time. Most are repeats of very famous jokes that everyone knows, and the new ones are written with bad grammar, or incorrectly. A few corrections:
    A. “there was a boy digging in a school yard and he shouts im free im free and a little girl walks over and says i dont care if your 3 cause im 4.”

    B. “A convict escapes prison by tunneling into the playground of a preschool. Relieved, he shouts,”I’m free! I’m free!” A young girl walks up to him proudly and boldly states, “That ain’t nothin’. I’m four!”

    A. “there was once a boy who lived in a house who went to st benets school in ouston oneday he asked his teacher if he could go to the toilet the teacher said not until you say the alphebet so it went like this A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O Q R S T U V W X Y Z THE TEACHER WENT WHERE IS THE P and the the boy said its running down my leg.”

    B. “One day, a first-grade boy realized he had to go pee. He raised his hand and asked the teacher if he could use the bathroom. The teacher asks him to recite the alphabet first. He attempted it as follows, “A,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i,j,k,l,m,n,o,q,r,s,t,u,v,w,x,y,z.” The teacher thought about ir for a second and finally asked the student, “Where is the P?” The student grimly replied, “It’s running down my legs”

    I’m sorry if I am incorrect, but I believe the Internet has only been up for public use since the late 80s. I was pretty sure that racism, along with racism supporters were dead by then. Nobody wants to hear your racist jokes. As you may recollect we had a big war on a very racist man in the early 40s. I believe the war was titled “World War II” and I think it was somewhat important… well, whatever.

    Wasn’t this page about lateral thinking? Just because the site professes comedy doesn’t mean you have permission to write stupid jokes on it. Even the good jokes shouldn’t be on this page.

    Thank you for your time.
