Speaking of funny...

A man is sent to prison, his first night there and he gets into his bunk for lights out. Several minutes later someone yells out "43!"

Laughter resonates all up and down the cellblock.

He then hears another voice call out "20!" also followed by laughter.

After the laughter dies down, a third voice yells out "64."

The new con is puzzled by all the laughing and asks his cellmate what's going on.

"You see," says the old timer. "There's only one joke book in the prison library. Everyone who's here memorized them all, so when we want to tell a joke, we can just yell out the number for it."

He thinks about it for a moment and decides that he's going to give it a try so he yells out "13!'

Nothing.

He tries again, "39!"

Again, no laughter.

He tries once more, "5!"

The entire cell block is quiet.

He turns to his cellmate. "Hey, what gives?" he asks.

"Some people can tell a joke, others can't."

Laugh it up, fuzzball, laugh it up.

I thought some people would find it funny in the "been there" vein...
