Looking to hone in your humor? Behold: the finest humor guidelines ever published.
Clean jokes are OUT. Screw the chicken and its road — light-hearted humor won’t get you anywhere in this day and age.
Pranks? IN. The funniest pranks include fake break-ups, fake coming out of (or going back into) the closet and staged active shooters (remember how funny that one was, LMU?). If you can get someone to dial 9-1-1, bonus points for you.
Puns and Dad jokes are OUT. They cause far too little damage to be funny. Low-risk jokes aren’t worth anything. If they produce laughter, it’s only out of pity.
Sexist jokes, racist jokes, anything hurtful demeaning or anything way too soon? IN. If someone doesn’t laugh, just accuse them of not having a sense of humor. You’re right, after all.
