My First Great Joke of 2006
This is my first truly worthy joke of the year which is too bad since it's September. By truly worthy, I mean it's the kind where I call other comedians and tell them. I may call John Callahan. Usually the ones I like are subtler than standard jokes, but I detect - dare I say it - an undercurrent of brilliance on this one. It says something big in a funny way. So now that I've overhyped it to death - now that it has no chance here goes:
You can always tell when Dick Cheney's trying to scare the voters. Like today he said, yes, it was bad that he shot the lawyer, but just imagine what could have happened if he hadn't shot the lawyer.
[On second thought, this joke is kind of lame. Oh well.]
