How many times have you bought a joke book
and then felt dudded when you found out that half the jokes weren’t
I can tell you one thing, it's not going to happen
when you purchase the 'Fark, That's a Good Joke' book. You'll piss
yourself laughing. You'll be rolling on the floor. It will be hard
to wipe the smirk off your face.
Most compilers of joke books go for
quantity, not quality. They don’t test drive the jokes before they
publish them. I’ve heard most of the jokes in this book, not
read them in other joke books or on the internet - though I have to
say the internet is a great repository. I reckon just about every
other day I get another joke sent to me. You can put me on your
This is not your ordinary, every day,
common or garden joke book. I’ve gone for quality. I’ve test driven
most of them. You'll wet yourself when you read some of these jokes;
you'll split your pants laughing.
The main criteria for a good joke is that
it’s funny. It becomes a better joke if it’s subtle or if it’s
wrapped up in a story. It doesn’t have to be long; there are lot of
good one-liners. For instance do you know the difference between fat
and cholesterol? Or the one about the clown who farted?
It’s a funny thing about jokes that you
always remember the person who told it to you. You can even remember
the time and place. A joke is a powerful thing.
The other funny thing is that you only
have to hear a word or a phrase and it will trigger a joke. For
instance, as soon as I hear the words ‘think’, ‘blink’, or ’turn on
the light’ I think of the joke that includes those words. Same with
‘Richard, Nixon’, ‘John Thomas’ or ‘St Peter’.
Anyone who’s good at telling jokes will
pick up on these triggers and out will come an appropriate joke at
the appropriate time.
I have to tell you though, there’s a
couple of amber lights hanging over any joke book.
The first is that if too many people buy
it you’ll have to put up with them telling you jokes you
already know. Be gracious. If you enjoy the book, keep it dark!
