If You Have to Explain It, It’s Not Funny

Something just reminded me of an old joke from a few years back.

You know how Saddam Hussein has a few lookalikes to appear in public in his stead, because he was always in danger of being assassinated?

During the US invasion of Iraq, these lookalikes were hunkered down in a bunker together, waiting for news of Saddam. After the initial bombardment is over, an aide brings them the official word: Saddam has survived the bombing. “Huzzah!” they all shout.

The aide then breaks the bad news: “…but he lost an arm.”
