Joke, n.

This is continually a work in progress. I will be upkeeping this, for your perusal and enjoyment.

Listed below are jokes on E2. They are sorted by categories and by date within each category. I am sorting them this way so that if you revisit this, you can easily find the newer jokes. Some jokes may fit more than one category. If you feel I have categorized a joke incorrectly, please send a god/editor a /msg insulting his close relatives.

I will be glad for assistance in upkeeping this. Please /msg me with hardlinks to jokes, or tell me if a joke has been removed. Also /msg me with suggestions and/or comments.
