The real essence of joke telling is in the delivery...that's why the mail service is a joke and failing

Pardon my misuse of words, a common failing for me since English is my first language.....not that it matters but the intended was that the essence of being a comedian is stealing jokes mostly with added personal touches.....which leads into the age old question of which came first: the last original joke or the pyramids? (some of those Egyptian hieroglyphics are regular riots)

As far as poor Sean's joke delivery goes, I assure you it was typed with a zest and panache that would have made Liberace blush.

Which reminds me of a joke...

A bunch of guys from the Laughter thread on SI got together each weekend to tell a whole bunch of their favorite jokes. They got to know the jokes so well that they gave them all numbers.

Savant called out 39, and everyone laughed hysterically.

Tom Clarke said 47 and everyone was doubled over.

OldAimGuy said 29 and everyone did a spit take.

Sedohr Nod watched incredulously as one by one, Stephen O, Sun Tzu, TimF, Thomas M, Celtictrader and so forth all called out their favorite numbers to the point everyone was laughing so hard they could barely breathe.

Wanting in on the fun, but not being a regular, Sedohr Nod figured, what the heck, and yelled out 19.

Crickets.

After an uncomfortable silence, Sedohr Nod asked: "Did I pick the one joke everyone didn't think was that funny?"

Savant replied: "Well, it wasn't the joke per se, it was your delivery."
