    Original jokes

    This is for jokes you make up.

    Why was Beethoven named after beets? Because he red a lot.

    How do you make something corny?

    Add corn.
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.

    New to the forum, happy day!

    What's up?

    The alien picking his nose in the shower on that planet in one of the zodiac constellations that apparently is exactly like ours.

    I just flew in from Seattle and, you know how some people's arms get tired? Well, my arms are so tired that they fell asleep!

    "My arm/leg has fallen asleep" in German is literally the way to say that you've got pins and needles in the respective limb.

    Even in the U.S. I think if it's just numb we say numb, or "I can't feel my arm." "Fallen asleep" can mean pins and needles or just numb, I think.

    Then your joke may in fact not be a joke, seeing as the vital characteristic, i.e. a sudden twist element, is missing. Stating the obvious does not constitute a joke.
