when I first heard it I thought it was a corny, yet hilarious joke.
so I decided to use as an opening to a speech I had to give in my honors english class in high school: "you can't make an omelette without breaking some eggs."
I was shocked when no one laughed.
I still think it is the most hilarious joke ever, but now I know the joke's really on me. also, I think it encapsulates my sense of humor quite nicely.
This guy in my high school creative writing class used that joke as the opening to one of his stories, and I also thought it was the funniest thing I'd ever heard.
Also funny (but not as): Why does a person never starve at the beach? Because of all the sand which is there.
