A good joke gets passed down from father to son, bartender to patron, weird older cousin to cousin. If it’s really good, it gets repeated until most people have heard it, which kinda makes it lose its zing. That means you’ve gotta pick and choose when to bring out your most treasured gems.
You’ve probably had an experience where you’ve been hanging out with friends and someone puts you on the spot and asks you to tell a joke. What do you do? Panic? Go for a lame pun or a knock-knock joke?
On Reddit, people are sharing their go-to jokes—the ones that never fail to get a laugh—here are some of the best:
