#NewEndingsToOldJokes via Hashtag, You’re It!: @BrandNewMcMann The Top Picks


A man tells his doctor “Doc, help me! I’m addicted to Twitter!” The doctor replies “Sorry, I don’t follow you.”

That, Ladies and Gentleman, is a joke. Usually a short story with a set up and a punchline. I think that everyone around the entire planet has a handful of jokes stocked away in their brains. From Knock, Knock Jokes, to Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road Jokes, to Yo Mama So…. Jokes we all know at least a few. We love to tell a joke as well. I mean who doesn’t like to make people laugh? And jokes have been around since man first lived in caves. The very first written record of a joke was actually by the Sumerians around 1900 BC. Sadly i have to report that the very first written joke that historians have found……is a fart joke. *sigh* Human beings really haven’t changed much have they. Different forms of jokes have been with us for a long time as well. William Shakespeare is actually credited with the very first example of a Knock, Knock Joke in his 1606 “Macbeth”. Also the very first example of the Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road joke was from The Knickerbocker magazine in 1847. These basic set ups for jokes are classics. But what about the punchline? Those are always changing. The ability for jokes to remain relevant and current are what keep even old jokes fresh and funny. That’s what brings me to this week “Hashtag, You’re It”. I asked Twitter for some fresh punchlines to some vintage jokes with the hashtag #NewEndingsToOldJokes. So check out the top list below and don’t forget to join me every Tuesday at 11 am EDT for the next hysterical episode of “Hashtag, You’re It”
