It was tense. I adore "X walked into a bar" jokes.
Lay some on me.

I have to give a presentation to about 15 new hires tomorrow sometime around 10am. The start time is always variable by about 15 mins. I do this all the time and it is quite a fun presentation. The orientation at my company is super goofy and fun and the person coordinating it is totally down for some fun. So much so that my coworker Kim has pulled HR into a ongoing prank war that Kim and I are in. I have no idea what Kim is going to pull but something is going to go down. She already roped in every single one of them to come find me and make me do ridiculous things as part of the scavenger hunt. I need a way to get all these people involved and turn it into complete laughter, embarrassment, and glee for everyone. [more inside]

I'm looking for jokes, usually bad jokes, that work as a series of short jokes where the punchline is in the final joke of the series. Example inside. [more inside]

Many years ago I heard a very funny recording that I know not the name of. It consisted of a woman (maybe a former opera singer?) explaining the story of the Wagner opera "Götterdämmerung". [more inside]

I'm trying to remember a web-video series that was mentioned on the blue a couple of times in the last year or two. All I can remember is that they were hosted by a woman (maybe light brown/blond hair...?) who was giving a funny/feminist take on various things in pop culture. Does that ring a bell with anyone? I think maybe one of the topics she talked about was yogurt commercials aimed at women. I know, not much to go on!

It's my grandmother's birthday next week, and I'd like to give her some sort of book with cute and funny short stories/jokes, a la Reader's Digest
. It should also be clean humor only
. Any suggestions? [more inside]

We are planning a publicity stunt that is likely to get national media attention. The catch is that we need the cooperation of a charitable organization with a sense of humor. We've had no luck finding one. Any ideas where to look? [more inside]

What are the cleverest, wittiest picture books you know? I'm looking for something you might recommend to a very smart kid who is still young enough to prefer picture books to chapter books. Another way of putting is, I'm looking for the picture book equivalent of McSweeney's. [more inside]

I am looking for the best in twitter comedy, twitters I can follow that are funny and will make me laugh. I appreciate satire but have a hard time enjoying most "fake celebrity" twitters.

Where can I find a funny picture that was circulated around the Internet a few months ago (digg, reddit, etc.)? The picture shows a closed toll gate with car tracks on one side of the gate where people had merely gone around it rather than paying the toll. That's my memory of it, at least.

Does anyone know where I can find this site again? [more inside]

Where did the theme music to the radio show Paradise Lost in Space
, which aired recently on BBC7, come from? It sounds familiar, and I would like to obtain a copy.

I used to be funny, and now I'm not. Not rip-roaringly, get-your-own-sitcom funny, but enough to get my girlfriend and friends to regularly smile and chuckle. How do I get funny again?
