OneLiner twoliner threeliner more
I like writing one liner jokes. Sometimes they're two lines. Sometimes three. It really depends on the width of the paper I'm using to write them on, and the size of the writing. If I write a really long joke, really tiny, on an unravelled toilet paper roll, then it may be a one liner. Although if writing sideways on the same paper with big writing, a short joke might be a ten liner. I tried writing a one liner joke once using literally just one line, but the best I could get was a lower case L or upper case i. And alone, they're not that good for jokes.
There are a few Kiwi comedians, in New Zealand and out of New Zealand, who write one liner jokes. And I find that Kiwi audiences tend to like them. I wondered why, is it because we have short attention spans? Oh on another topic I put my washing on an hour ago, I wonder if it's ready? Oh, where was I. Attention spans, that's right. New Zealands Kiwi people liking short jokes. Maybe it's because some of our most popular comedians from the 80s and 90s used one liner jokes so we grew up with them. Maybe I'm just have a bias in thinking and hoping they like one liner jokes, because I do them.
Here are some pictures of me telling some one liner jokes in front of red things. I'm not sure why comedy clubs like red so much, maybe because if a bull came into the room it would charge the stage and watching a comedian deal with that would be pretty funny. By default, Kiwi clubs don't tend to have bulls, although maybe New Zealand bulls might get together one day and somehow figure out how to make this whole thing happen.
