Meta-humour isn't funny

Ohno! What am I going to do?!

Mind you, I do find a certain smug satisfaction in the fact that this is technically meta-meta-blogging. And that that was meta-meta-meta blogging, etc. ad nauseum. See, that's why "meta" is so fun; just slam it in front of anything to make it obscure and elitist, which is always a laugh. Of course, I'm not the first to notice this, as you can see, in fact I've looked pretty thoroughly at that blog entry and I can't see anything even approaching a subject.

Here follows some "meta-humour" / anti-jokes / broken jokes. I loves it.

"Three blind mice walk into a bar. They are unaware of their surroundings, so to derive humour from their predicament would be exploitative." - Bill Bailey

What did the little boy with no arms or legs get for Christmas? Cancer.

What's worse than finding a worm in an apple? Being KILLED BY AN AXE-WIELDING MANIAC!!

Why was six afraid of seven? It wasn't. Numbers are not sentient or capable of feeling fear.

When is a door not a door? When it's half open.

Yo mama's so fat she has to wear large clothes!

"My dog has no nose."
"How does he smell?"
"He can't; he has no nose!"

So you're walking down the beach when a bicycle falls out of your pocket. How many potatoes does it take to make a pancake?
About a fish this colour.

And I'll leave you with this.

There once was a man from St. Bees
Who was stung on the arm by a wasp
When asked, "Does it hurt?"
He replied, "No it doesn't;
But I'm glad that it wasn't a hornet."


  1. If the election were held today, nobody would vote, because it's not election day.

    And one that I think I made up:

    If it were a snake, I wouldn't have been looking for it.


  2. Les, you legend! Though I'm not sure I 'get' the second one. Thanks for commenting :D

  3. Yep, I'm a legend in my own mind.

    I wasn't sure if that one was more universal. The usual expression is told to someone who fails to find an item that happens to be right in front of them, "If it were a snake, it would've bit you."

    Oh wells.

  4. Ahhh that's very American, but your response is most witty indeed :D I shall remember it for when I go to America! I may even look for something right in front of me just so I get to say it.
    Hahah, no I won't.
    Weeelllll... I might.


Do you have relevant / irrelevant things to say? I thought so. Comment!
