This is a question Lead Balloon

Have you tried to be funny and failed horribly? Yeah, join the club. Or have you witnessed someone crash and burn by either being plain unfunny or offensively unfunny? Tell us your stories of sense of humour failure

Thanks to the charmingly named Reginald Donkeyfuck (not related to the Cheshire branch of the Donkeyfuck family, one presumes)

I went to a musician friend's party once
and got rather hammered on the special punch that was being served (it consisted of a bottle of vodka, one of rum, one of red wine, plus cloves and orange slices, plus anything else that was added as the host got more drunk). Inspired by recent events, I ended up telling the joke, "What weighs five pounds and won't get plucked this Christmas? John Denver's guitar!"

To a roomful of acoustic guitarists/folk musicians.


I did not add to the merriment of the evening.

I think I got forgiven, but it took me a while to remove the foot from my mouth.

What exactly is 'special' about a punch made from common alcoholic drinks?

You can read it two ways.
It doesn't have to be the punch that was special.
Rather like shepherds pie isn't made of shepherds.

Whoa there, Hoss. Back the hell up.
If it's not made from shepherds then just what the Jesus is it made from?

It's responses like this
that make me glad that I have you on ignore.

It's like you're trying to be funny - even throwing in the cutesy Americanisms. Yet you're stating the bleeding obvious from a joke that's already been "milked".

Get back to me shambo when you *FINALLY* have some original content.

I'll be waiting.

“I have you on ignore...”
I can only assume that this is intended as some high-level, double-irony, hipster trolling. Shame it's shit.

FYI using the word "content" like that marks you out as a frothy bellend.
