Goal of The Month: Batty Over Wellness
DIW Events Calendar
National Tell a Joke Day
What happened to the comedian on August 16th during National Tell A Joke Day? Everyone stole his punchlines! All joking aside, get out there and laugh a little and tell some funny ones.
This day will be filled with smiles and laughter from morning till night. Jokes consist of humorous stories either written or verbal that often end with a punchline. While slapstick includes props and even minor stunts on the part of the storyteller, usually the best jokes are short. They involve a little misdirection and a well-delivered punchline. The more jokes you tell, the more fun you will have and so will those around you.
