I'm really funny, and I'm also Jewish. Sometimes people want to test my threshold for humor, and ask me if I think Holocaust jokes are funny. I often respond by saying "no." Those people think the reason that I don't like their joke is because I'm offended, but really it's because those jokes aren't particularly clever. They're joke structures are on par with the knock-knock joke. I'm not laughing because I'm a humor elitist, but I can imagine a group of people who wouldn't laugh for a completely different reason…

[Cut To: A Clandestine Meeting.]

"What's the difference between a Jew and a pizza? The pizza doesn't scream when you put it in the oven."

Orville! Come over here.

What is it Grand Wizard?

You can't be making jokes like that.

Oh, really? Has the chapter gotten soft? Has the Jewish Defense League been making threats? C'mon it's just a joke, we hate Jews, remember?

Yeah, but your joke presupposes the existence of the Holocaust.

Huh?

It reminds people that Jews were actually put into ovens. How can they be put into ovens, if it didn't happen?

Um, maybe it's a coincidence.

No! You can't tell jokes like that anymore at the Holocaust Deniers Association.

NEXT WEEK

"What's the difference between a Jew and a pizza? Pizzas aren't responsible for all of the problems in the world."

Ha Ha Ha, he finally gets it!
