It’s No Laughing Matter – 100 of the Best Stupid Jokes Ever Told

Who doesn’t love telling stupid jokes? There is something addictive about knowing you have an expansive repertoire of nonsensical jokes. But what are the best bad jokes? Well, you’re in luck. This article will present you with the ultimate list of stupid jokes to keep you splitting sides for years to come.

Best Stupid Jokes

It doesn’t matter if your jokes are silly, childish, daddish, controversial, or flirting the line with offensive humor. Stupid jokes always have a place in your comedic arsenal.

While standing up to tell ‘brainless’ jokes may not necessarily be considered the height of comedy, you only need to look back through the annals of stand-up history to see that mindless humor is not just easy, but it’s downright hilarious. 

Understanding the Delicate Art of Telling Stupid Jokes

The main aim of telling jokes is to make people smile. If you do it well, they might even laugh. Do it well enough and long enough there will probably be a Netflix series in your future. But nowhere does it say that comedy needs to be intelligent or thought-provoking.

Yes, there is a time for deep humor and intelligent humor. But most of the time, people want to tell a simple joke to get a laugh, while the audience wants to hear a simple joke so that they can laugh.

They say that laughter is the best medicine, and that’s not because it’s easier to swallow than a pill or because the convulsions in your body make it easier to fit in a suppository. It’s because laughter helps you destress. It enables you to forget about your problems and worries. It’s not even about the jokes themselves.

It’s about getting that reaction from the crowd, and nothing does it quite as well as a simple stupid but funny joke.
