Last night at around 10:30pm I got bored and asked people on the interwebs to suggest an animal for me to write a joke about. I stayed up to 3am writing jokes about ALL the animals given to me. This is why I can’t maintain relationships.
I learned a lot about animals though so perhaps there is some academic integrity embedded in this pursuit of silliness. The quality of the gags is dubious but this was more an exercise in virtual interaction and creative task completion.
