That’s Funny, Right?(not really) By G.Othello
There is an art that requires great skill. It is the art of the fake laugh. I believe everyone should perfect this. The fake laugh will save someone who isn’t funny some saltiness. And if you are good at the fake laugh they will never know.
Far too often people will tell a joke and at first it’s funny. It’s usually the follow up joke that isn’t. That’s what we call stretching a joke. It’s as if since they made you laugh they could just keep going with this joke and make you laugh more, but that isn’t always the case. Some people don’t know when to quit while they are ahead and made the whole joke stupid and unfunny. So then you’re sitting there having to fake laugh so they don’t feel bad.
