A few days later he started telling me another joke and once again the joke fell flat due to the missing punchline.
When a few days later he started a third joke, I asked in advance if he knew the punch line and, after giving it some thought he confessed he didn’t.
To this day, when said person announces he knows a joke, I always check if he knows the punchline. Most of the time, he does, but there are still times that he has to think about them before telling the joke.
And speaking of jokes, I came across this very funny joke today. Careful, it’s an adult joke.
