A joke is a story with a humorous twist. It can be in many different forms, such as a question or short story. To achieve this end, jokes may employ irony, sarcasm, word play and other devices. Jokes may have a punchline that will end the sentence to make it humorous. (Thanks Wikipedia!)
I’m rubbish at jokes; I can never remember them, especially the story based ones and I just can’t bring myself to tell the rude ones! It doesn’t help that I work with eight year olds so I get told absolutely rubbish jokes at school – their current favourites are:‘What is red and black and red and black and red and black….?’ ‘A sunburnt penguin rolling down a hill!’
and‘What’s green and red and goes round in circles really fast?’ ‘A frog in a food mixer’
I know, they’re truly terrible, but I love the innocence of them!
