THE HALL OF FAMOUS JOKES
attending his first Comedian's Convention. He's very excited to see
all the comic's he's seen on TV sitting at tables all around him.
The proceedings begin with a joke session.
Jay Leno gets up and says "Number 64." Everyone in the hall
laughs uproariously, except Sammy. Sammy turns to the older comedian
who brought him, and says, "I didn't hear any joke. What's everybody
"These are all professional comedians,"
says his friend. "They don't need to hear jokes. They
all know the jokes so well, they've given every joke a number. They
just get up and say the number. It saves time."
Chris Rock has gotten up and said, "Number
one hundred forty three," and again, everyone in the room cracks
"Could I try it?" Sammy asks
"Of course," the friend says.
"So Sammy stands up and he says,
"Number fifteen." Nobody laughs. Sammy is so embarrassed,
he sits back down. Then he hears a voice mutter down near the end
of his table, "Some people just don't know how to tell a joke."
