It’s gotten to the point where someone came up to me at a recent speech I delivered and had a pressing question before I went on, pulling me aside, asking me to explain the joke. Oh boy.
In case you haven’t heard it, here it is:

Yes, it’s funny to me, and I think I’ve got the timing down.
The joke comes from comic Tommy Johnagin when I asked him whether people offer him material for his act. He said of course! And I learned a new term “Street Jokes”. His favorite happened to be #TheMuffinJoke. Which I love to tell and have incorporated it into my daily routine with both shows.
Today I told it to my comic guest, Joe Machi, after asking him if he’d heard it before. When he said no, I was happy to oblige. He not only thought it was funny…he thought it was deep.

C’mon, the joke is gettin’ traction!
Have a great weekend. On Monday I’ll be back talkin’ about the NJ gas tax and the battle to keep it from goin’ up. Enjoy your weekend.
