What happened to

originality in humour? For several years, many people have structured their "jokes" in exactly the same way. I've heard so many similar sounding jokes, that

I can predict the punch line

before they're even half way

there. They're all about the

same thing, and people get

pissed off when I don't think

it's funny. Why don't I think

it's funny? I'll tell you why, because it sounds like a rip

off of some t.v. stand-up

comic who did that particular act over five years ago. Now,

it's just boring. Why can't

people tell me a joke that's

actually funny? Is that too much to ask?

Wants to be humoured, not annoyed.
