Cartoon Factory Jokes

What constitutes as a joke?

According to Wikipedia, a joke is "a short story or ironic depiction of a situation communicated with the intent of being humorous," which is a rather boring and... well, serious description of a joke!

Why do some jokes hit us so darned funny, while others fall flat on the ears? Well, the deep truth? Some things are funny and some things aren't. We think it might be that simple, and that complex.

Humor is one of the biggest mysteries of the ages. It's personal to each of us. What makes one person laugh can bore another to tears!

In addition to being a single phrase or statement, a joke can also be a visual act or stunt, or a silly slapsticky jesture or movement.

A joke can also be a witty "tongue-in-check" one-liner, or a silly little poetic quip.

Sometimes, "a joke" is a bad thing, like...
"That Steve guy is a real joke." This of course, won't be very funny to Steve, once he figures it out.

A comedian doing a stand-up routine hopes to be funny, and doesn't want to be considered "a joke." Unfortunately, this is a common dilemna in stand-up comedy.

One of the funniest things to witness is our cultural differences, in how we relate to humor. The U.S. is the sarcasm center of the world, and if you've ever witnessed someone new to this country trying to grasp sarcasm, it's pretty darned funny!

Fact: Not all brains are hardwired for sarcasm. No, really.

With all of this said, the joke is on us. In conclusion to our witty little web page, we have included a handful of really terrible jokes for your viewing pleasure (or displeasure). It's up to you to decide what is truly funny. Enjoy : )

One day, two blondes were walking through the woods and they came to some tracks. The first blonde said: "These look like deer tracks!" The other blonde insisted: "No they look like moose tracks!" They argued and argued for a while, and they were still arguing, until the train hit them. (argh, argh, argh)
What did the blonde's right leg say to the left leg?
Nothing, they haven't met!
