FIFTH ANNUAL JOKE SHOW|
Here they are, hundreds of jokes, painfully and painstakingly categorized...the good, the bad, the above average and the very, very ugly.
We received just over 1000 jokes for this year's show. A number
of them were used by Garrison and the cast.
Many years ago, a tiny island nation in the South Pacific
was home to some of the finest woodworkers who ever
lived. Unfortunately, no one ever found about these
legendary artisans since the only pieces they ever produced
were thrones for the king of the island. It was a tradition
that every year, on the first day of summer, the old
throne would be burned in a massive bonfire and the
woodworkers would present the king with their newest
masterpiece, an ornate and beautiful throne they spent
all year carving and shaping. The king would rule from
the new royal seat and then destroy it at the next year's
