Thread: Why is this joke funny?

  1. #1 Why is this joke funny? 
    Guest
    Does anybody know why jokes make us laugh?
    For example....



    A little girl walks in to the lounge one Sunday morning while her Dad is
    reading the paper.

    "Where does poo come from?" she asks.

    The father feeling a little perturbed that his 5 year old daughter is
    already asking difficult questions thinks for a moment and says:

    "Well you know we just ate breakfast?"

    "Yes," answers the girl.

    "Well the food goes into our tummies and our bodies take out all the
    good stuff, and then whatever is left over comes out of our bums when we
    go to the toilet, and that is poo."

    The little girl looks shocked, and stares at him with watery eyes in
    stunned silence for a few seconds and asks:

    "And Tigger?"

    Hee Hee...poop is always funny.

    How about this one:

    A young Indian brave goes into his father's teepee, and asks a question. "Father", he asked, "how did I get my name?"

    "Well, son" the father replied, "It is the tradition of our tribe that when a child is born, the father names the child after the first thing he sees."

    "After your grandfather was born, his father walked outside and saw a great flowing river, so he named him "Running Water."

    "After I was born, my father looked into the sky, and the first thing he saw was a great bird, so he named me "Soaring Eagle"

    "Does this answer your question, son?" the father asked.

    "Yes, father" the son replied.

    "Good...now go to bed, Two Dogs Fucking"

    I guess the dad saw this:

    Pierre, a brave French fighter pilot, takes his girlfriend, Marie, out for a pleasant little picnic by the River Seine.

    It's a beautiful day and love is in the air. Marie leans over to Pierre And says, "Pierre, kiss me!"

    Pierre grabs a bottle of Merlot and splashes it on Marie's lips.

    "What are you doing, Pierre?" says the startled Marie.

    I am Pierre, the fighter pilot! When I have red meat, I have red wine!"
    She smiles and they start kissing.

    Things began to heat up a little and Marie says, "Pierre, kiss me lower."

    Our hero tears her blouse open, grabs a bottle of Chardonnay and pours it on her breasts.

    "Pierre! What are you doing now?" asks the bewildered Marie.

    "I am Pierre, the fighter pilot! When I have white meat, I have white wine!"

    She giggles and they resume their passionate interlude, and things really steam up.

    Marie leans close to his ear and whispers, "Pierre, kiss me much lower!"

    Pierre rips off her underwear, grabs a bottle of Cognac and pours it in her lap. He then strikes a match and lights the cognac on fire.

    Marie shrieks and dives into the River Seine. Standing waist deep, Marie throws her arms into the air and screams furiously, "PIERRE, WHAT IN THE F#@ K DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING?"

    Our 'hero' stands and says defiantly, "I am Pierre, the fighter pilot! If I go down, I go down in flames!"

    In the joke I posted above I would like to make it quite clear that any similarity to living or dead persons is purely coincidental.

    Continuing our debate into what makes people laugh....

    BREAST EXAM


    A woman and a baby were in the doctor's examining room, waiting for the doctor to come in for the baby's first exam.



    The doctor arrived, and examined the baby, checked his weight, and being a little concerned, asked if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed?

    "Breast-fed, "she replied.



    "Well, strip down to your waist," the doctor ordered. So she did.

    He pinched her nipples, pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts for a while in a very professional and detailed examination.




    Motioning to her to get dressed the doctor said, "No wonder this baby is
    underweight. You don't have any milk."

    "I know," she said, "I'm his Grandma, but I'm glad I came."

    The joke in the opening post is funny for a simple reason.
    The twist ending.

    1. One is prepared for it being a joke and is attempting to predict what the joke will be as one goes along. This is an essential aspect of the human psyche. It's what we do. Predict.

    2. The joke is about poo and so we go into fart joke mode while trying to figure out what the punch line will be.

    3. At the end, we suddenly realize that, just like the father in the joke, we mistook the meaning of the word 'poo' and that it wasn't supposed to be a fart joke at all.

    The twist ending is actually two twists:

    a.) That the poo in question is Winnie the Poo and not shit.

    b.) That we made the same mistake the father in the joke made. We can identify with his plight. We are part of the fabric of the joke itself.



    Anyone ever hear the joke called The Aristocrats?
    Hmm. This forum is a tad uptight. I might not want to post it here.

    A man was walking down the street, when he passed the window of an antiques store. He stopped in his tracks and was mesmorized by something in the window....a brass statue of rat.

    The man entered the store and began to gaze closely at the statue, when the store's owner approached him.

    "Ahhh, I see your interested in the brass rat" the owner exclamed.

    "Yes," the man replied, "How much is it?"

    "Well..the statue is $20, but if you want to hear the story behind the statue, it's $5000." said the owner

    "$5000!?! Forget that! I'll just take the statue." replied the man.

    He pays his $20 and leaves the store with statue in hand. As the man starts walking down the street, he notices something very pecular. Rats begin to pour out of buildings, sewers and trash cans and begin to follow him. The futher he goes, the more rats begin to follow, until he finally has every rat in the city following behind him.

    The man walks down to the river, and with a great heave, throws the statue into the water, and rats follow, plunging into the river to a watery grave.

    The man sprints back to the antiques store and bursts through the door, out of breath.

    "Ahhh..I see your back to hear the story behind the statue of the brass rat." remarked the store owner, rubbing his long white beard.

    "Hell no!" replied the man, "I just wanted to see if you had a brass lawyer!"

    a welshman, an englishmen and an irishman are being chased by farmer giles with a shotgun. after 10 minutes of running they spot a barn and rush inside.

    once inside they each hide in an old sac against the barn wall. the farmer runs in after them but doesnt see where they hav hidden. he is about to turn back when he sees three suspicious looking sacs. he walks up to the first sack and prods it with his gun. the englishman inside says : "meow"

    "just cats" the farmer thinks.

    then he prods the next sack. the welshman, hearing lhow the englishman got off says "woof"

    "just dogs" the farmer thinks.

    as he walks towards towards the last sack, he irishman works out what he is going to say. as soon as the farmer prods the sack with his gun, the irishman says :
    "potatoes"

    An Oklahoma Sooner (Alumni from Oklahoma University), a Texas Longhorn, (Uni. of Texas) and a Texas Aggie (Texas A&M) are planning a trip across the desert. Each one is told they can bring only one item with them.

    On the day of the trip, the Sooner showed up carrying a large bottle. "Whatcha got there okie?" asked the Longhorn.
    "I got me some water, I figure if I git thirsty, I'll have somethin' to drink..Whatchew got in that thar gunny sack, Tex?" replied the Sooner.
    "Well, I done got me a whole passel of grub. I figure if I git hungry, I'll have me sumthin' to eat"

    At that time the Aggie walked up, carrying a car door. Both the Sooner and Longhorn snicker and ask, "Aggie, what in the HAIL do you plan on doin' with a car door in the middle of the desert?"

    The Aggie replied, "Well, I figure if I get hot, I can just roll the window down."
