Tell me about how you spend more time collecting Dad jokes As opposed to doing your school work
Tell me why pain makes you laugh Right before you yell “yooo that’s fucked up! Oh my Goddd!! I’m definitely going to hell for laughing at this” Tell me the story of that one time you did that one thing So ridiculous, That you fell, got injured, Yet you proved that laughter is still the best medicine
It’s been kind of bland around here, So spark the dark; spark the talk. Tell me how you walk with a spark And the reason? Well, this world is simply too dark
Tell me how you walk that walk, You talk that talk. And it’s all good when you in the hood How you belong on a stage, next to Eddie Murphy But I guess, for now, we’re gonna keep your jokes to the back of the classroom
I need a funny story! I wanna know why That rooster was chasing your long legged aunty, in the yard Tell me how She ended up running all throughout town with a broken sandal even after the rooster flew away Tell me how is it that roosters fly in your stories!
David was able to beat the goliath, blah blah blah We’ve heard that story too much This world is rather sad, and my poetry is not doing it any longer So tell me, if it’s no bother This time, let us try humor
I actually carry with me a folder on my phone that is filled with dad jokes One day, I hope to go to Las Vegas to pick up some fine honeys with them But until then, imma practice on my co-workers who have no choice but to listen to me As I laugh at my own jokes.
It’s been mighty serious around here I need something to make my heart jump. Jump start my heart. So call this comedy. Call this your stage. Perform. Tell me something. Make me smile. 🙂
Wearing these CDC-recommended masks is a ridicule
My ears being pushed forward like a monkey
We’re all walking around looking like a monkey
And the pain at the back of the ear is an unending story
I did not survive the hunting and gathering for this.
Talking with a mask on is a hazard of life
And I hope you had forgotten your specs, but either way
Fume starts clouding your vision
Tripping on isle five—vegetable station.
How to explain to the smiling essential worker
Why logs of yam
Droplets of taro
Rocks of potato
All piled on the floor.
With a broken phone, unfit human
Loose leaves floating, onto the ceramic
If you live in New York City, then you know how atrocious the MTA (NYC train system) can be. The train traffic also always seems to be worst when you are late or in a rush to getting to your destination. Most people complain, others just leave home extra early (although that rarely works), and at the most extreme, some people decide to invest in a car (but they still have to deal with traffic and finding parking).
Well, instead of turning to all of these alternatives, Charlie had a better idea. Charlie decided to get a bike! So, you might catch him pedaling through your neighborhood. Everyone is jealous of Charlie, and this video is Charlie’s story. Happy watching and listening!
