Sharing my favorite joke is a bit of a challenge since the few I truly enjoy are limericks frequently involving a man from Nantucket. But I love botched jokes. To quote a friend “Why was the elephant kicked off the beach? Ha! Because his pants kept falling down!!!” The long, embarrassed silence has remained comedy gold for some 30 years.
