Humour 

One liners.
  • I hate Russian dolls, they're so full of themselves.
  • I asked my North Korean friend how it was there, he said he couldn't complain.
  • Don't let an extra chromosome get you down.
  • People used to laugh at me when I would say "I want to be a comedian", well nobody's laughing now.
  • My wife told me to stop impersonating a flamingo. I had to put my foot down.
  • The first time I got a universal remote control, I thought to myself "This changes everything."
  • Say what you want about deaf people... 
  • I refused to believe my road worker father was stealing from his job, but when I got home, all the signs were there.
  • I recently decided to sell my vacuum cleaner, all it was doing was gathering dust. 
  • People say I'm condescending. That means I talk down to people.
  • Whiteboards are remarkable.
