I walked into the biology lab and saw my lab partner dissecting an insect.

I told him, "I think your fly is open."

Analysing a joke is like dissecting a frog

Few people are interested and the frog dies

Why didn't the human anatomy professor tell her students they dissected the wrong body?

... She didn't have the heart to tell them.

Explaining a joke is like dissecting a frog.

You understand it better, but it dies in the process.



See what I did there was use the frog as an analogy to show that exposing the inner workings of a joke would essentially deprive it of its life in that it's not funny anymore. I'm drawing a parallel (and so is E. B. White) to how y...

How is a joke like a frog?

If you have to dissect it, it's probably already dead.

See, because a common practice in laboratories, whether inhabited by students or professionals, is to dissect an animal, usually a frog, to understand the internal workings of it's body. Of course, this animal would be in a lot of pain if...

A joke is like a frog…

When you dissect it, it dies.

Get it? Just like a frog dies when you dissect it, so does a joke when you explain it. Basically, the frog is used as an analogy, to help people understand that jokes shouldn’t be explained, because the joke will die, or more specifically, become unfunny.

I have a joke about biology but

you have to dissect it well to understand it.

I found out my date likes to dissect people from Southeast Asia.

I've since decided to cut Thais with her.

I had to do a dissection today.

It was heartbreaking.

I dissected an iris today...

It was an eye opening experience.

Explaining a joke is like dissecting a frog.

So in reality, that children's zoo is really overreacting.

My jokes are like frogs

They aren't funny after you dissect them. But they weren't funny before either.

This joke may contain profanity. 🤔

Doctors were asked if we should reopen the country. Here's what the experts said:

Allergists were in favor of scratching it, but Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.

Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.

Obstetricians felt certain everyone was laboring under a misconcepti...

Interactive joke

There was a man who lived in a 3 story house. **Remember: 3 stories.**

The man entered the house and saw his wife making an omelette. He told her "You're supposed to use butter, not oil." Immediately the wife slapped him and said "Who's cooking? Me or or you?"

The man went up to the se...

I kept trying to think of puns about the eye during my biology lesson, when we dissected one.

To be honest, they kept getting cornea and cornea....

A Czech and a Pole go hiking

They wander upon two bears having relations. They try to run but the bears easily chase them down and eat them. A ranger hears the commotion and runs in and shoots the bears. Police arrive and they dissect the female bear and find the Pole. The ranger sighs and says, "Well, I guess the Czech is in t...

Jokes are like frogs

Because if you dissect them, they die.
Except to use the word "dissect" implies the frog or joke in question is already dead. The correct word choice would be "vivisect," which is the equivalent of a dissection, but with the animal (or joke) still alive. Much like a dissection, vivisections are u...

Having to explain a joke is like dissecting a frog

Sure, everyone will understand it a bit better; but the frogs never quiet the same.

What do you call a dissection performed by drunks?

An Autipsy.

What do humans and jokes have in common?

They may have not been before, but after you dissect them, they're definitely dead.

This joke may contain profanity. 🤔

So I heard that my cousin is gay.

Apparently in school while other kids were dissecting frogs, he was opening flies.

What's the similarity between a joke and a small, cute, furry mammal?

They both die when dissected

Jokes are like cadavers...

They're all fun and games until you dissect one.


It's funny because the word dissect is used as both "dissecting a joke" and also as "dissecting a cadaver."
Also, both cadavers and dissected jokes are often dead.

This joke may contain profanity. 🤔

So how about a real joke about Bulgarians for a change?

A flying saucer beams up a German engineer, an Indian guru and a Bulgarian. The three of them are informed by an alien in a lab coat that standard procedure when contacting an unfamiliar species is to subject them to the standardized intergalactic intelligence test.

"You will be put in an air...

My jokes are like onions...

They're layered.
And because if you dissect them I'll cry.

My dad's favorite joke

Two men go out to lunch. One man orders a BLT, but the waitress says "We're out of BLTs." The man contends they cannot be out of BLTs, and asks whether they have bacon. The waitress answers in the affirmative. The man asks whether they have tomatoes. Again, the waitress answers "yes." The man asks w...
