Read this!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geek_humor

It's almost a joke in itself... listen to these quotes:

  • "unless they are "over lappers" (geeks that migrate between, or have multiple, areas of interest)"
  • "Thus, humor generated from within a geek circle becomes just as obscure as the geeks themselves"
  • Whoever wrote the article obviously considers themselves 'too cool for school'!

    The jokes themselves though, I did enjoy Laughing out loud

    I'm so funny!

    That reminds me of a joke actually!!

    A policeman is back at the station discussing his evening with a colleague.

    "I caught two boys stealing earlier, one trying to steal a firework, the other a car battery"!

    His curious colleague asks, "So what did you do"?

    "Well", he says, "I charged one and let the other one off"!!

    :rolleyes:

    Sorry to disappoint

    I desperately tried to think one up then. When I failed, I googled, when that failed I tried to invent one. Got quite close with ideas of someone with a lisp pronouncing Medusa as 'seduce-her', hence why the men turned to 'rock'... but it all seemed a little seedy, and I couldn't work out the finer details that would have made it funny so I gave up.

    Laughing out loud

    Parallel Universe

    Do you reckon there's a forum out there with people who spend 99% of their time helping one another compile good jokes, and discussing the complexities of the perfect joke formula, but currently chatting in an 'off-topic' thread about how they tried to build a CSS site but failed?

    Arnold Rimmer syndrome huh! Mirror-Hugo probably hates his life. He probably wakes up each morning with the numerous people who'd begged for his company the previous night, gets dressed in something glamorous, has his favorite breakfast and thinks 'I'm bored of life'.

    I'm one of those weak people who always enters the cheats in computer games but then when I've got every weapon the games has to offer, quickly gets bored!

    Same thing?

    found on a cypriot website - rhat'e nearly greek!

    I was looking for information for my mum, who lives in cyrus when i found this on a page full of jokes - this one was the only one understood (ie in English) - the others were all Greek to me!

    For several years, a man was having an affair with an Italian woman.

    One night, she confided in him that she was pregnant. Not wanting to
    ruin his reputation or his marriage, He paid her a large sum of money if she
    would go to Italy to secretly have the child.

    If she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would also provide child
    support until the child turned 18. She agreed, but asked how he would
    know when the baby was born. To keep it discrete, he told her to simply
    mail him a post card, and write \"Spaghetti\" on the back. He would then
    arrange for the child support payments to begin.

    One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused wife.
    \"Honey,\" she said, \"you received a very strange post card today.\" \"Oh,
    just give it to me and I\'ll explain it later,\" he said. The wife obeyed
    and watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and fainted.

    On the card was written:

    \"Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti.

    Three with meatballs, two without.

    \"Send extra sauce.\"

    PS the slashes were in the otiginal which I cut and pasted, weird huh?

    life's to short for pig headed following the rules;
    life's too long to if you miss the point!
