Dang! I thought it *was* funny.

How much do people hate bad jokes? Apparently, quite a lot.

According to the Associated Press, a Washington State University professor who studies “failed humor” found that when people tell a bad joke among their friends, they risk everything from malevolent glares to a punch on the arm. Surprisingly, the better the audience knows the joke teller, the more risk the joke teller runs.

The article includes the joke that the researched used as a test. Oddly, I thought the joke was a riot. I don’t know precisely what this means, but it could explain a lot of things in my life. I must think on this.
