I had a joke that I tried out tonight- a joke that seemed BRILLIANT in my head but lost its flavor once I said it outloud.
Here's the joke:
When people find out i'm gay they ask me lots of questions- the same questions you would ask someone that just told you that they have cancer.
How long have you known?
Are you 100% sure?
Have you told your family yet?
THE END OF JOKE
Even writing that joke out makes me chuckle but alas I must lay it to rest. Maybe the joke doesn't work because we are a society full of cancer. I can't think of anyone I know that doesn't have or has known someone with cancer.
Or maybe the joke is like a nailfile to the teeth.
