Humor Writing Exercise

It’s fun creating my own, unique humor writing exercises.

I look forward to getting Allen Klein’s Monthly Mirth Letter. He shares jokes that are sure to put a smile on your face. This month, three of them stimulated my funny bone.

– Several fonts walk into a bar. “Get out of here,” shouts the bartender. “We don’t serve your type here.”

– If you jumped off the bridge in Paris, you’d be in Seine.

– Did you hear about the mathematician who’s afraid of negative numbers? He will stop at nothing to avoid them.

In the spirit of creative writing, my take on the jokes:

– Two fonts were having a beer at the Main Street Bar, when a noisy entrant at the front door announced: “There’s a new Serif in town!”

– Insanity is jumping off the same bridge in Paris and not expecting to be in Seine.

– A historian asks his mathematition friend, “We’re celebrating my promotion. Are you drinking?” The friend replied “I ain’t drinking nothing.” The historian loudly ordered, “Bartender, my friend will have a double negative.”
