Jokes demonstrate the value of being concise. Often the punchline is enough, and the set-up is superfluous. Perhaps the same can be said for many presentations and documents, when the executive summary alone is best.

  1. How do you think I rang the doorbell?
  2. There’s my thermometer. Now where the heck did my pen go?
  3. What you mean we, white man?
  4. OK, but when you pull that thing out, it better have numbers on it.
  5. Hey, wait a minute. That’s not a duck.
  6. Wrecked ’em? Darn near killed ’em.
  7. $10, same as downtown.
  8. Because goose doesn’t rhyme.
  9. Everybody.
  10. $2,500.05 for selling your body? Who gave you the five cents?
  11. Nah, we need the eggs.
  12. What, and give up show business?
  13. And the bear says, ‘you aren’t really here for the hunting are you?’
  14. But the chicken was my idea.
  15. If I could walk that way, I wouldn’t need the talcum powder.
  16. You’re Thor? I can hardly thit down.
  17. Why do you ask, Two Dogs Humping?
  18. Oppornockity tunes but once.
  19. I can’t tell you, you’re not a Monk.
  20. I’ve been asked that question about a thousand times, but never in the pluperfect subjunctive.
  21. Watson, you idiot. Some thieving bastard has pinched our tent.
  22. So they don’t whistle on the way down.
  23. You’d be amazed at the burst of adrenaline you get when you bite yourself in the nether regions.
  24. Arrr, it’s driving me nuts.
  25. So I bit him.
  26. And on Friday it’s your turn in the barrel.
