A funny note about Funny
It’s funny how things that used to be funny,
Aren’t allowed to be funny no more,
What was once a joke that heralded laughter,
Now seems to set off a small war.
Jokes about blondes, Irish and mum’s,
Jokes about folks that you knew,
Got replaced with: PMS jokes aren’t funny….. Period! or
I hate peer pressure, you should too.
To be fair these new puns, with double entendre,
Are funny when said in a crowd,
It’s funny how this Funny replaced the old Funny,
Funny how we are laughing out loud.
Written on 4th August 2017 but not for any contest. This is the only contest this write has been put into. Thought this might suit the contest for Maria Williams "I started a joke"
