The Jokemakers - Just the jokes, ma'am.
The Jokemakers are a dedicated team of artisanal comedians working to foster community and model sustainability by growing a local joke system. Updated at least four times a week with fresh, homemade jokes!

Myself, fellow MeFite wemayfreeze and a third punsmith of moderate local renown are The Jokemakers. Pun-haters need not click.

You like story jokes? We got those.
Cerebral, thinking-man's jokes? We got those too.
Crass jokes with the word "butthole?" You better believe we got those.
Good ol'-fashioned groaners? Only every single one!

Also on Twitter and Facebook!

I laughed. I cried. I hurled.

This site is like being trapped in a room with my Uncle Bill. In a good way.

Are you guys going to open up membership? Because I'm a punsmith, a pun-ter, a punned-it, doing O-pun Source humor with an o-pun mind, an advocate for Capital Pun-ishment. An experienced groaner-maker. You might say I had 'groan' up doing it. Story jokes: I know how to wag a tale, I'm a tale-gunner, in modern cultural terms, I'm leading the 'long tale'. And crass jokes? I'm the head of the crass, in a crass by myself, at least until it all comes crassing down, then I'm left hanging on a crass. Buttholes? No ifs ands or butts. And that's the hole truth. However my cerebral is more surreal-bral. Or cereal-bral (part of a complete breakfast or fast break). For the vision impaired, I also do cere-braille.

But artisanal? What does the sidekick in "Wild Wild West" have to do with it?

onefellswoop - well played, sir. We are definitely going to have a "submit" button on the page and feature occasional guest puns. You can then submit to your heart's content. Like a prisoner's camping gear, you see. Con-tent.

I'm groaning AND laughing.

Statistically speaking, then, you're graphing.

Also, needs a link to or big embedded version of Instant Rimshot.

Among the various ideas we've been bandying about is a rimshot-type deal, for sure. Also:

- Having an occasional "audio joke" for punchlines that work better when said aloud, and for the odd Shaggy Dog joke.
- "Jokemakers: After Dark" for some of our racier jokes, which we have a small collection of.
