International Joke Day ~ July 1st
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on of [month], repeating indefinitely
International Joke Day takes place on July 1st every year. It is a day dedicated not to pranks as April Fool’s Day is, but rather to get people to laugh out loud. Read on to find out some great ways to achieve this goal.
Do you know what the funniest joke in the world is? I do…
“Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn’t seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, “My friend is dead! What can I do?” The operator says “Calm down. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.” There is silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says “OK, now what?”
But why is this the funniest joke in the world? It has a universal appeal, reaching across many different cultures and still getting consistent laughs. The reason is not simply the shock value although that does contribute to it. This joke makes people laugh in part because it helps us feel better about ourselves, walking away with the knowledge that people have done and will continue to do dumber things than we do.
How to Celebrate International Joke Day
Celebrating International Joke Day is so easy… you can simply tell your best (or worst) jokes to your family and friends…or even strangers. If you have any local comedy clubs take in a show and support the comedians working to make your day brighter. If going out is not on the agenda, kick back and find some great comedy on TV or online. After all, they say laughter is the best medicine. Here are some other jokes for you to share. You might get a laugh, you might get a groan, but have fun and try to achieve today’s objective, getting people to laugh.
- “I’m afraid for the calendar. Its days are numbered.”
- “I failed math so many times at school, I can’t even count.”
- “How do you make holy water? You boil the hell out of it.”
- “How do you follow Will Smith in the snow?” “You follow the fresh prints.”
- “I got carded at a liquor store, and my Blockbuster card accidentally fell out. The cashier said never mind.”
- “When life gives you melons, you might be dyslexic.”
- “A guy walks into a bar…and he was disqualified from the limbo contest.”
- Adam & Eve were the first ones to ignore the Apple terms and conditions.
To Watch on International Joke Day
I love a good comedian, and Jim Gaffigan is my favorite. He is a clean comic that makes me laugh every time I see him. He is family-friendly so for those of you who want to celebrate with the kids, this is the guy for you, especially since he has about two thousand of his own rugrats running around.
