Some of the jokes posted here remind me of an old one about the two guys in a very strict prison.
No talking allowed....The newbie was quickly informed of this rule, but at night someone would yell out a number and everyone in the slammer would burst out laughing. When the guard got there, silence.
Next day he got a chance to enquire what was going on. It was explained that whilst they could not talk, they had a fair repertoire of jokes, all known by numbers, guy would call out a number, they would think of a joke, and laugh like hell.
After a few months he figured he had the hang of the place, so at 2100 one night he yelled out, "23". .......Silence!
Next day he asked his cell mate, "I told 23 last night no one laughed?"
His partner said, "Yere, good joke 23, but it was the way you told it."
