Five funny jokes to share on National Tell a Joke Day

Everybody loves a good joke. Whether it be cheesy, rude, or damn right awful, a one liner or a storytime, a joke is intended to make everyone laugh.

“A joke is a short humorous piece of oral literature in which the funniness culminates in the final sentence, called the punchline… In fact, the main condition is that the tension should reach it’s highest level at the very end. No continuation relieving the tension should be added.” – Robert Hetzron

August 16 marks National Tell a Joke Day. Laughter is apparently the best medicine, so to have a day which is dedicated to side-splitting jokes sounds perfect to us.
