And nearly all your posts will be stored for later viewing pleasure. If I strained, I'd probably find all but one or two of my posts on Spiderweb. Many of them, especially the old archived ones, are dumb.

Let this be a lesson. :P

Indeed. And the mere feeling that my words will be stored for years gives me that extra incentive to write coherently. :P

When someone reaches the rank of "Frolicking in Postland" others will go back to see that person's insight. If it is just a long list of posts such as "I added one more post" the title seems to loose a bit of it's value.

I don't know man, there're probably worse jokes in the world.

What is a bad joke? Is a bad joke one that is supposed to be funny yet fails miserably, thus becoming a loser among jokes and made ridicule by other jokes?

Or is a bad joke something that is said and just isn't funny?

Is this be a bad joke?

House.

(is it a bad joke because I intended it to be a joke and it's not funny at all? or maybe someone finds it funny because it reminds them of something, unintentionally?)

Is this a really bad joke?

Knock, knock.
Who is it?
Knock.

What is the worst joke in the world? Is there such a thing as the worst joke in the world? Will writing, intoning or even thinking about the worst joke in the world be akin to writing and saying the 9 billion names of god? What would happen?

Just wondering.

Edit: I edited the worst joke in the world.

Monty Python has weighed in on the subject of what could be called the worst joke in the world if mass killings are your idea of bad.

—Alorael, who also considers bad very much in the eye of the beholder in matters of humor. There will always be a place in his heart for really, really bad jokes and especially the most repulsive puns ever written or spoken.

Monty Pyton take a lot of things and twist them. Also, my father will probably be able to tell you the worst joke in the world, for he pops out with bad jokes consistently.

There are jokes that are very bad though.

In that case I'll be like a tree and leave.

I think people are using this topic as an excuse to post random things, such as "the worst jokes in the world".

Your sparkling observational talents are clearly wasted on us. There's a career ahead of you in investigative journalism -- if Jayson Blair can do it, anyone can.

The worst joke in the world would be one that is simultaneously extemely unfunny and so offensive that it makes everyone who hears it either run away in disgust or attack the joke teller.

In the past couple days there have been many posts such as "look I posted", and "tell us a joke" and other similar spam.

I may be to new to complain about newbies, but some of this stuff is just a little annoying.

Not at all. If you find the vast majority of newbies generally irritating, you'll fit right in here.

Dolphin: I'm not that old, but it seems to me they come, they post a few times, then they leave. Some of them stick around for a while longer, but their irritation, it seems, tends to run out of fuel sooner or later.

But then, it seems, like a vicious circle, those who leave will be guaranteed to be substituted by more. For some reason, writing in lower case letters and saying things like "look i'm poztin' yah yah yah!" or permutations of it passes for entertainment where they're from. Cultural differences and all that, I guess.

I wonder sometimes why they don't go to their local park, stand in some spot with good view and yell the same kind of stuff they post here.

I wonder what the equivalent of badly written, lower case sentences is in the vocal world.
