*Whoosh*

There's always truth in jest. 

"Hey, wanna hear a joke?"

"Sure."

"How do you get down off an elephant?"

"…"

"Ahem. How do you get down off an elephant?"

"Are you asking me?"

"Yes!"

"I thought you were going to tell a joke."

"This is part of the joke."

"So I have to answer? I'm telling the joke?"

"No…just…no. Answer the question to the best of your ability: How do you get down off an elephant?"

"I don't know."

"You don't get down off an elephant. You get down off a duck!"

"…"

"Get it?"

"Is that part of the joke? Are we still in the joke? Do I have to answer that?"

"No. The joke is over. You get down off a duck."

"OK. That's understandable."

"But do you get the joke?"

"No."

"It's a play on the word 'down.' You see --"

"No, I understand that. But why is that funny?"

"Because…well…it just is."

"I have never laughed in my life. So it's just hard for me to understand."

"If you have no sense of humor, why did you agree to have me tell you a joke?"

"I thought this might be the time."
