    I’m trying to work on my sense of humor but I can’t get past the stage of cheap shots and corniness. What should I do???


    Ask someone with a good sense of humor to give you some tips.


    you either have a sense of humor, or you don’t
    you can’t force it
    same if you have a bubbly personality or not, you either got it, or you ain’t


    Remove all sharp objects from your house and stay away from high places

    And what’s wrong with corniness?

    You would make a great dad (and hopefully a great granddad) if you aren’t one already

    See if you appreciate this, why did the Lubovitcher cross the road? To be mekarev the chicken. To appreciate this you must know another joke, why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side.


    look at the jokes Amoraim did when started a class. Also, try joking about yourself not others.

    Never heard that one (the first part at least),


    Amoraim didn’t make jokes, they made witty statements.

    Try to change over from a sense of humor to the dollars of humor a)to make more money as a comedian and b)to help you in this inflation economy you can make a living with a sense of humor.
    LoL 😂😂😂😂😂😂


    What’s the best wine to use on Purim? Machlokes between Rashi and the Bartenura

    Rashi holds if you drink his wine on Purim it will keep you wining until Purim comes back around the next year.


    I think you’re pretty much doomed if you’re lanky. A sense of humor is definitely more dominant among the stout.


    Most funny jokes have a corny idea at their core. It’s about the delivery. Try to analyze a joke that you like and cope the train of thought as well as how it was put down.

    In order for a joke to be enjoyable it has to be novel, surprising and ironic.
    Novel: You can’t reuse a point made in an earlier joke.
    Surprising: Save the punchline for the end, and if possible save it until the last word. Don’t double down on it by saying it again another way. Let them just laugh without your comment of “that’s what he said”, or some other unimportant space-filler. And if they didn’t laugh, carrying on won’t help.
    Ironic: The soul of funnyness. A pun is ironic. A connection, another meaning of a word, or an odd application of a concept is irony. A pun in and of itself is not all that entertaining but can be used as a punchline of a well designed joke. For example, you can distract the listener from the other meaning, and build a story that implies the regular usage and suddenly turn it around at the end.

    Isn’t that funny?
