18 Jokes So Bad They're Actually Funny

We'll get our coat.

Ricky Gervais Thumbs Up Comedy is a tricky thing. It's one of the few things on this planet that can make people upset, offended, annoyed, or cause them to burst into an uncontrollable fit of the giggles and even, in some instances, bring people to tears. Comedy can be used as a tool for good, to help raise morale or lift someone's spirits. It can be used as a defense mechanism, as sarcasm is the preferred choice for those dealing with insecurity while general humor can be utilized as a mask to cover up someone's battle against depression. Sometimes, comedy can even be used as a weapon, as a seemingly harmless joke can be used as a figurative sword and shield if you add the right amount of truth and reality to it. The biggest misconception about comedy is that people often believe that a joke has to be good in order to make someone burst at the seems with laughter. Just like the world of cinema, where a film can be so abysmal and awful that it's good because of it and develops a cult following (we're looking at you Showgirls), a joke can be so simple, so stupid, or so obvious that it actually is... pretty damn hilarious. In this day and age where people want everything to have meaning and where people read way too deep into things that are meant to be taken at surface value, so-bad-they're-good jokes are a helpful reminder that not all things in life have to be complicated and more often than not, all we really need to get through the day, is a the right amount of fluff and levity. Here, we take a look at eighteen jokes that are so awful, that they're actually funny.
