Telling bad jokes!

Andrew Taylor - Spud Fit | June 7, 2019


I’ve been posting some pretty heavy, deep and challenging stuff lately. I’ve really enjoyed diving into what it really means to be happy and the negatives of positivity, these sort of articles have really struck a chord with many of you. I couldn’t be happier to be able to challenge the way we think about life and food, I love that I can help people see things from new angles and open up new ideas.

Life shouldn’t be all serious, all the time. If you’ve been following me for a while then you’ve heard me say “make your food boring and your life interesting”. It’s been pointed out to me that I’ve spent a lot of time and energy on discussing my philosophy behind “make your food boring” but haven’t really said a lot about how to “make your life interesting”, so now it’s time to focus on that!

There are a million things we can do to make life interesting, one of my favourites is to see if I can make my wife laugh. It really is impossible not to feel good when you make someone else laugh! An easy and fun way to do this is simply do a google search for “short bad jokes”. It’s important that you make it a short bad joke because that’s a fail safe, it has three possible outcomes that I’ve experienced –

1) the target finds it funny and laughs at the joke, this is obviously ideal.

2) the target doesn’t find it funny but laughs at you for trying to tell such a ridiculous joke, less than ideal but a laugh is a laugh!

3) the target doesn’t laugh but at least appreciates the effort.

“Dad jokes” is also a term worth searching for. Whatever you do, make it a short joke, there is nothing worse than a long joke that is not told properly!

When you’re depressed and have forgotten what you actually like to do, it can be hard to figure out how to make your own life interesting. In this case it’s great to turn your attention to others, you can’t go wrong with trying to make someone else laugh!

As bonus, here’s your first joke to tell:

Q: What’s the difference between mashed potatoes and pea soup?

A: Anybody can mash potatoes.

Spud up!
