Comedy has become very popular these days. You can even get it on TV. Sadly it's now more profitable to sell the space where the punchline goes, instead of telling a traditional funny joke. I heard the following jokes at a standup show last week:
BT, we're here to talk to you about our great broadband packages.
Did you hear about the Irish gambler? He opened an online William Hill poker account and got £50 of free chips.
Why did the chicken cross the road?
To get to the HMV summer sale (3 dvds for £20).
What do you get when you cross a blu-ray player with a next generation games console?
A PS3, now in stock.
A priest, a nun and a rabbi are sitting on an airplane. It's lands safely. Qantas Airways.
It's all quite sickening, but I must admit that I laughed at all of them. It was just the way he told them.
