Old Oct 12th, 2005, 04:43 AM        " You had to be there" Jokes
Everyone has a "You had to be there" Jokes. They are the dead-ends of comedy that seem to crop up in any joke telling circle.
The teller, through gasps of laughter, manages to tell the joke to co-workers/friends/family, only to be brought up short as they all stare at the teller until he mumbles "Ya'll just had to be there" The ya'll is very important though.

Now, what I am going hinting at, is that I will try describe a "You had to be there" joke, ones so funny, that I had to drive my car to the side of the load or suffer the driving with side splitting contagious laughter.

Driving through Seattle with friend.
Get to a cross-walk. Asian guys walking really slow.
Friend says, "I wish they wouldn't take so long"
I say "If you yell Godzilla, they might move faster."
She doubles up laughing the contagious laugh, which I catch.

I guess you just had to be there.

I've got one.

My parents and I were walking through JCPennys one day, and my dad saw this line of clothing called Crazy Horse. It looked awful, I don't know who was manning the line, but the shirts looked like somebody had ran a cat into a brick wall or something. Anyway, my dad says, "There's Crazy Horse shit everywhere!" Just to signify how awful he thought the clothing was. I started laughing, then so did my dad, and my mom asked us to leave the store.

I guess you just had to be there.

oh oh oh
got one
ok

so i was in england visiting dole and we went to go see my crazy girlfriend, laura, and her boyfriend steve. we ended up at this horrifically american nightclub and guess what? got drunk.

yeah so much fun ensued. we got back to laura's place and after staying up for a bit and drinking more we finally went to bed.

this is where it gets fuzzy, so dole is going to have to take over for me from here.

hopefully it'll be one of those 'you had to be there' things

"You had to be there" is the last resort of those who lack the creativity to honestly convey the humor of the scene/situation. Elsewise, the scene/situation wasn't so universally humorous to even include the plural "you" and one should state that the "you" was indeed singular and was indeed referring to the joke-teller themself. As in, "I guess this joke is only funny to ME because I am utterly ridiculous". And then they should apologize and excuse themselves to get another beer.

Well, I find you funny but, then again, so is dog poop in its proper context.

My compulsive masturbator friend got skeet on a stuffed dog. We named the dog spooge dog. when he came by my house, I asked him about spooge dog. My mom said "What's spooge? That's a new one on me!"

That's not a "you had to be there" ... that's funny regardless.

Me and some friends were sitting in this car parked outside this dude's house and theres this car parked in front of us. "DRUM MAJOR" is written on the rear windshield in white shoepolish or something and the D looks kind of like P. So anyway, we're waiting for our friend to come out and we're trying to figure out whos car it is and after a while we decide it's this guy we all don't like. So my friend is like "Go pee on the car dude" and I'm like "What if it's not him?" and he says "So what?" and I'm like "Well I'm not going to fuck with no asian plum major". Everyone kind of stopped for a second and then the explosion of laughter ripped through the car. Not only did you have to be there, but you have to be really sharp to get it at all.

my friends girlfriend doesnt just tell jokes, she recites entire days in the whole "You had to be there" style.

one day i finally pointed it out. She was talking, " So we went through the drive thru and the guy at the counter was singing. So i started singing with him and me and brittney started laughing and he started laughing, then his manager came up and she started laughing."
I interupted, "you know what i like? Stories that are a lot funnier when your there in person."

-Dead silence for the rest of the ride-

One time we were at a high school football game, and this dude came up to me and said: "SUP FAGGOT?" then we threw him over the top of the bleachers, and he got impaled, and we drank his blood, laughed for a while, had anal sex in the bathroom, cried for a bit, then had more anal sex.

You just had to be there.

We were at the theater and saw a poster for Saw 2. We laughed at the tagline and that kind of became a joke. "Hey, will there be blood in that movie?" "Oh yes, there will be blood."

I don't know if that's really a "you had to be there" moment...

Last night, my mom griped at me about not doing laundry. "I don't hear the dryer going!" "I don't either, mom. We must be twins!" There was much laughing and then I did laundry.

Did the apparel exit the dryer with the scent of mountain-fresh goodness?
