There’s this certain category of joke I’m not sure how to label or describe.
It’s not really a “practical joke” in the sense that it’s a big prank, and it’s not really a pun, or a setup punchline thing either.
It’s the kind of joke that’s just sort of found in the wild, where it catches you off-guard and sticks in your brain. It needs a name, no doubt, it needs a label. And maybe you can help me find one for it as we sift through a few good examples via the fine folks of Reddit.
10. We have the meats
But you don’t need to go that far to get them, dang.
9. Super lose
Is your dog Rick Sanchez?
8. Will you scary me?
I don’t know, it kind of looks like the one on the right is proposing, leave me alone.
7. Stay safe out there
And they’re like, it’s better than yours.
6. All that cake
Get OUT of my SWAMP.
5. Spring in your step
Hey, they gotta keep each other amused somehow.
4. Stool samples
“Seriously, dude? I’m a doctor. I’m very busy. I don’t have time to laugh at this very hilarious joke.”
3. Point made
Nothing simple about this syrup.
2. All by design
It really is a passion of mine, and the talent is all natural.
1. Water you doing?
Just follow the trail and you’ll find the joke shortly…
So what do we call this kind of thing?
Seriously, I’m at a complete loss. I’m going to need your help.
Give me your ideas for the categorization in the comments.
