Quite like 1, 2, 3, 6 and 8.

Number 6 is alright

I like the 10th one, the rest can get in a fucking bin.

6 and 10 for me, mates.

No, it’s actually bad on accounts of how the premise is both weak and revealing of the punchline.

Irks me that they called him middle aged, which seems to assume he’ll live to be 142.


None of them as good as:

Astronaut 1: Hi mate, I can’t find any milk for my coffee.
Astronaut 2: In space, no one can. Here, use cream.


Guess it depends whether these are one liners or within the context of a wider act?

All bad. As already confirmed.

I would have ‘liked’ the joke if someone had posted it in the jokes workshop thread

3 is a stolen Lee Mack joke
5 & 7 are rubbish
The 8s are middling

The others are all solid gags that were probably even funnier with good delivery.

You must be a right joyless taskmaster fan to not like any of these.


Welcome to DiS.


Scott Aukerman has a much funnier version of 3

8.2 is one of the standard twitter joke formats and therfore I can’t like it

None of them even made me smile obviously

Even fucking Elon musk has made 2. Elon Musk!

You shouldnt ever be allowed to work as a comedian again if you’re doing jokes Elon Musk has made

I work in the water/hydrogeology sector, this joke has been around for years. It’s a good one liner, I went through a phase of saying it to people when explaining what I do for work.
