Joke Contest — Being a Comedian

The theme for this month’s contest is Being a Comedian.

New Joke Contests are announced at the start of the month (alternating months).

New Cartoon Caption Contests are announced at the start of the month (alternating months).  The next Cartoon Caption Contest will be announced January 1, 2011.

Your challenge this month is to name an object and then explain its qualifications to be a comedian.

Here are some examples:

An orange could be a comedian — But only the variety with a thick skin.

A boxer could be a comedian — The humor would have good punchlines.

The President could be a comedian — He’s always providing jokes to late-night talk-show hosts.
