Are You Kidding Me? We Hope So!!

Cheeeeeeers and a Happy Thursday to you all.

As you may know by now, LIVE this Sunday June 9th, from Noon-2 PM ET, the Jayman and I will be hosting the 3rd Annual IWS Radio Joke Show on THE Number One comedy show on BTR.

Through various avenues of social media networks, we have beseeched people to email us, record, or call-in with their favorite jokes for Sunday’s Joke Show.

After emailing, blogging, Facebooking, and tweeting these um…beseechments, er yeah?  I asked myself something I have never asked myself before…

What is the true definition of a “joke?”

So…I went to Merriam-Webster online, and here is what I found:

joke noun \ˈjōk\

Definition of JOKE

a : something said or done to provoke laughter; especially : a brief oral narrative with a climactic humorous twist

b : the humorous or ridiculous element in something (2) : an instance of jesting : kidding…can't take a joke

c:  Sarah Palin

Okay, okay…I know…

I added the Sarah Palin reference, but c’mon…

Her fame was brief.  All of her sexy and very oral narratives were humorous, and she is one incredibly ridiculous element of our national landscape, so America’s favorite Eski-Ho does in fact, meet the aforementioned definition.

We all love jokes...

Hell, even people who have no sense of humor love a good joke, because sometimes, they either don’t get it, or it strikes too close to home and they pull out their gun and/or broken, jagged beer bottle and threaten you with it, and well…

That in itself, is pretty damn funny.  At least to me it is.

So c’mon folks…All of you who read our website and/or listen to our show are pretty damn funny, so either record a joke for Sunday’s show or better yet, call-in with one at 661.244.9852.

And dig it folks…

For each and every one of you who calls in and tells a joke, 10-year old Sarah Murnaghan will receive a new lung.  Can you imagine?

If twenty people call-in with a joke, by the time the show is over, little, precious Sarah will have had twenty lungs implanted, be all sewn-up, and ready to be shipped to California in order to help breathe the crucible-like life out of the wildfires that are raging in the Golden State.

And well…our ratings would expand faster than a two liter bottle of Pepsi filled with Mentos, so...

It’s a win-win-win, people!!

IWS Radio correspondents will also be chiming with their favorite jokes.

Perhaps Guy Ahnyurdyck will have a great Dutch joke.  Maybe Joshua will have a funny gay joke.  Perhaps if we are lucky…

Our meteorologist Kirk Douglas, will have a HI (Pressure)-Larious stroke joke, which would make our resident poet Paul Piatt happy, because stroke and joke rhyme, and because of that, Paul may for this one time take the patches off of the elbows on his suit coat, and show his wickedly delicious sense of humor.

We already have joke telling commitments from two foreigners.

One who lives in Canada, and one who lives in Kentucky...so don’t let America down people!!.

Send, record and/or call-in with your jokes for the 3rd Annual Joke Show on IWS Radio which will air this Sunday LIVE from Noon-2 PM ET on Blog Talk Radio.

Cheers,

Matt-Man

Bobby Kraft, Rev Moneymaker and Joshua have already submitted their jokes. I'll check with Kirk Douglas after his post-Matlock nap in the morning.

I'm not sure this qualifies as a joke.

How many hippies does it take to change a light-bulb?

ANS: Who cares, I can roll in the dark.

I'm sorry to use a drug reference there but some of the kids find that stuff kinda funny. I don't do drugs myself. I like huffing...

I'm With Stupid said...

Dirk: Drug references are fine but most people who use them won't be up by show time as it begins at the crack of Noon. Cheers Dirk!!

Extra lungs...

That's a fantastic idea.

A couple extra kidneys, a spare liver or two, and my social life might really pick up.

Good luck on the jokes. Most people aren't that funny, which is why we leave it to the professionals, like you.

Katy: There are plenty of funny people out there. Sure, many of them are unintentionally funny, but funny nonetheless. Cheers Katy!!
