Funny peculiar?

I tried to write a couple of jokes for a friend of mine who is a stand-up. Here’s one: You know, with all the sneaking around in the dark, the shouting, and the forcible sodomy, a home invasion robbery is pretty much exactly like a surprise birthday party. Except without cake.

Hmmm. As I said, I tried.

Ever try to write a joke? Let’s hear it.

Hey, howsabout a joke?

One writer says to another writer: So, what are you working on?

Other writer says: Oh, I’ve been writing a novel.

First writer says: Yeah, me neither.

Got another? Let’s hear it.
