Tell a Joke Day!
August 15, 2020
Did you know? … wait for it… Did you know that International Joke Day was on July 1st? You didn’t tell anyone a joke, did you? Did you? (imagine that I’m leaning in… because inquiring minds want to know). Well, I hope you didn’t tell a joke because Tell a Joke Day is on August 16th. Who knew? Now, we all do! What a relief! You may have heard me say that my Dad is a jokester (some might say a prankster). I grew up hearing and telling jokes. I guess it’s fitting that at The Woodlands Toastmasters Club we have a person designated to make us laugh at each meeting, and this specific role is called “The Jokemaster”. I’m not making this up! Yes! Toastmasters International sees the benefit of laughter.
Did you know that laughter helps reduce stress? It’s true, just ask Google, Alexa or Siri (heehee). To help you prepare for 1) Tell a Joke Day and or 2) reduce stress, I would like to share a few jokes with you. Some of these came from residents of Grand Central Park (nevermind that some may have had a list of jokes to choose from). Here are some of their faves. Please note, there are a couple of originals as well. For the sake of anonymity, we will refer to everyone as “Jokemasters”.

Thanks to my GCP friends for obliging me by sharing / picking out a funny joke. I don’t know about you, but I feel equipped to seize the day, the “Tell a Joke Day”, that is. Here’s to LOL’ing!
