My Gramps just passed away. This was his favorite joke to tell.

*Sorry for the meta of this, I'm still reeling a little. I post two or three (or ten--sorry for breaking rules) jokes on this sub every day. A lot of them are simply awful, but they're all original, and my Gramps was a huge inspiration for me becoming a comedy "writer." But this is an old joke, and ...

A joke is something funny because unpredicatable that makes people laugh, giggle or smile. This is a a joke :

The fact that it takes a second to realize that "we talked about ewe" sounds like the well known sente...

[META] r/Jokes keeps me going

I'm sorry if this is not allowed here but I had to share. I have a bunch of health issues, severe anxiety, and depression. I've on multiple occasions felt like giving up. Sometimes, no matter how much support you have it is difficult to keep going. That's where you guys come in. I read your jokes al...

Multi-level Meta Joke

A guy walks into a bar and asks the bartender for a free drink. The bartender says ‟I will give you a free drink if you cn tell me a multi-level meta joke.” So the guy says ‟A guy walks into a bar and asks the bartender for a free drink. The bartender says ”I will give you a free drink if you can te...

Satan went to the doctor because he felt he wasn’t evil enough for the current times….

After his check up the doctor prescribed to him some meta-sin.

This joke may contain profanity. 🤔

Pretty meta bro

Cake day posts are annoying and uncreative, so many people make anti cake day posts. These can be just as bad, and are only rarely funny if they are posted on the poster's cake day, (aka: anti cake day cake day posts). This possess a bit of a conundrum, as here in Reddit, we make fun of things, but ...

A navy officer on a submarine was doing his rounds and noticed something odd...

There was what looked like a frying pan handle sticking out of the floor of the sub! The officer did some more looking around, and saw more strange things sticking out of the floor: golf clubs, clothes irons, car bumpers, and even half a bicycle!

Alarmed by this, he went up to the sub command...

My Daughter told me this adorkable meta joke today (she's 5).

Her: Daddy, knock knock.

Me: Who's there?

Her: Pete and Repeat are in a boat, Pete jumps out, Who's left?

Me: (sigh) Pete and Repeat are in a boat, Pete jumps out, who's left, who?

Her: Repeat.

[meta*] surprising new science shows that the way humans understand jokes can be acurately modelled by fluid dynamics

let that sink in.

[Meta] Can we get length of joke flair similar to /r/TIFU

Is it possible to implement flair beside every joke that indicates the length of the jokes? /r/tifu has something to indicate this. Personally, I like reading longer jokes and I find myself skimming through and ignoring a lot of titles that begin with "What do you" "Who" "Why does a" etc. But even...

This year in Heaven the Christmas celebration was also a costume party. Everyone dressed up.

Many people came as movie characters, from Gandalf the Grey (and White) to Jason Bourne to Black Widow to Harry Potter. Alan Rickman went as Hans Gruber, which made St. Peter exclaim "See, Die Hard IS a Christmas movie!" St. Peter was dressed as the "Fragile" lamp from A Christmas Story. Moses showe...

[META] Can we have S,M,L flairs on joke posts to indicate length?

Sort of similar to /r/tifu

[meta] Flair for jokes (a suggestion to the mods)

I had an idea occur to me, how about offer flair for jokes so that it can be tagged as an oldie but a goody or heard it from a friend or thought of this one myself, because some people seem like theyve heard a lot of stuff and complain every time they heard it again. It would help you not get let do...

Meta: Reverse Punchline Challenge

Hey /r/Jokes, I thought it might be interesting to see just how good we are at actually making jokes from unfunny situations. As such, I thought a good challenge might be to provide a few randomly thought up punchlines that *you* the subreddit construct the lead-up/joke to. Highest rated comment wou...

I see your multilevel meta joke and raise you a two-tiered joke.

Quasimodo was in the steeple of Notre Dame looking down on the town when he noticed a man running to the ladder of the steeple. There was something odd about the man, but from a distance, Quasimodo couldn't distinguish what it was. The man climbed the ladder, and it was evident - he had no arms. ...

Meta-limerick

From [Wikipedia](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meta-joke#Joke_template)

There once was an X from place B,
Who satisfied predicate P,
The X did thing A,
In a specified way,
Resulting in circumstance C.

[META] What would you think about a monthly "best joke" thread?

I mean, a thread created once a month where everyone submits their best jokes. I think it could work out nicely if done correctly.

The main problem to be addressed would be repetition (without restrictions we could easily end up with identical threads every month). For that reason, it may be ...

[META] Spoiler Tags?

I love a good joke, but I'm a sucker for skipping ahead. Like, my eyes just skip to the last line for no reason.
I read the punchline, and I didn't get any chuckles at all.

Does anyone else do this? If it's not just me, do we want start spoiler tagging the punchlines? Or does this cause tr...

What do you call a really long metaphor?

It's like, a metafive

PS I made this up myself and I'm really proud of it

I never meta joke

that wasn't funny

A renowned philosopher...

A renowned philosopher was held in high regard by his driver, who listened in awe as his boss lectured and answered difficult questions about the nature of things and the meaning of life.

Then, one day, the driver approached the philosopher and asked if he was willing to switch roles for just...

[Meta] Damn Girl jokes

Damn Girl jokes.... so hot right now. Please consider cross-posting them to /r/damngirljokes.

Five redditors are walking in the forest...

...when they find a lamp on the ground. One of them rubs it, and (as expected), a genie appears. Because he's feeling particularly generous, the genie decides to grant all five of them one wish each.

The first one steps forward. "I would like a ten-inch-tall piano player, please". The genie ...

What's a metaphor?

It's for jokes that reference themselves.

Meta Dick Joke

It appreciated the firm handshake.

Ok not seriously, here's the joke:
A young pre-teen boy understands he will be pubertized in the next few years. He turns to his father, a doctor, for advice. He says "You're a logical doctor. What does it mean to be a man?" The doctor thinks about it a b...

[Meta] Can we make use of the spoiler tags?

I see in the stylesheet that the ability to create spoiler tags is there, but I never see anyone actually use them. I'm sure I'm not the only one who tends to have wandering eyes, jumping lines at a time to accidentally read the punchline before reading the rest of the set up. Maybe a note in the si...

[Meta] Would it be possible to get a moderator bot to flair each post according to length?

Similar to the way the /r/Talesfromtechsupport that way we can see if it's just a one liner, a short setup or a long epic? I'm not entirely sure this is the place to put this, so if there's a better spot can someone tell me?

[Meta] Based on the popularity of the punchline-first thread, I thought you all might like /r/reversejokes!

/r/reversejokes is a great little subreddit that I found. It's more or less completely inactive though, which is a shame.

Essentially, each thread is a punchline and the comments are the jokes.
Check it out!

Is it okay to post jokes about jokes here?
