Thin Air

Everything about humor


Today Patricia asked me to explain about "knock, knock." So I explained the call-and-answer sequence and gave a couple of examples. Then I had to tell her that they were meant to be jokes. She just stared at me and said, "but it's not funny." She's right. It's not.

Newfie jokes seem to be universal, though. In Ecuador, they make jokes about "Pastusos" - people from Pasto, a Colombian city just across the border.
