Subject: RE: BS: First Joke Thread of 2017
That's like the one about the prison in which the prisoners are not allowed to talk at mealtime, so they make up a list of jokes so instead of telling them they can just yell out the number without identifying themselves. One day someone yells out a number and nobody laughs. His cellmate explains later that it was because he didn't tell it right.

That led us, in a lab I once worked in, to number the jokes we told each other, with a brief description (not necessarily the punch line). I still have the list. Here are the first ten:

1. The team of Tom and Louise
2. Doctor, what shall I do with...
3. See that man over there? I have...
4. I can predict confidently...
5. Life presents...
6. It's a long way to...
7. Last year I had one glaring fault.
8. When my doctor treats you for kidney trouble...
9. ...It makes you deaf.
10. I think I'm coming down with something....
