I've caught myself explaining a joke, and then adding, in a matter-of-fact way, "...and of course, now that the joke is explained, it is much funnier".
I've been really tempted to do this sometimes, but the thing is nobody will get it :(

Which is why you then explain why explaining jokes makes them funnier.

Well you aren't supposed to explain your own jokes, are you?

And leave a joke unexplained? Blasphemy!

I'm thinking less of you already, liopoil.

Yeah, explaining jokes is an epidemic.  And then explaining again how I just made the joke funnier by explaining it.  Then explaining about how I started doing that because of this forum.

Man. I had four strips of bacon yesterday. Was one automatically undercooked, one automatically overcooked? No, let's put a stop to that right here, all four strips were excellent.

In my house, whenever someone has to pass something Masquerade usually comes up. Like "pass the potatoes" becomes "potato masquerade".

So "gas masquerade" would likely immediately be followed by "air freshener masquerade"?

I think that one was trashed or something because I lost track of it.

It would have come up again sooner, but it missed the reshuffle.

That's because it's smaller and quieter than a blue dog.

My wife and I use on demand to watch multiple episodes of The Voice at time.  (PLEASE no comments about who won the just concluded season, as we have not seen the finale, and I've managed to dodge internet discussion of the winner.) A few nights ago, she was trying to remember one of the judges names from a prior season (it was Usher).  She kept trying to help me help her remember, describing him, then talking about who was sitting next to him, a Latina (and I had completely forgotten Shekira's name and presence).  Her efforts became more and more involved and less and less helpful, and I could not remember Usher's name.  I finally gave up, and said:

Was it Moat?                 

She was unimpressed, as she does not read f.DS.

So, I explained the joke, which of course made it a LOT funnier.

And, she gave me a really great +1. ;)
