Sharing s Caring


Some people can tell short jokes and make you laugh and others have a great sense of humor so that their sweet comments always make you laugh. Jokes may end up old or no more stock in memory but those with the sense of humor have the lasting talent all the time. Which of them is considered one-liners?!

My one-lineer – The meaning was on the tip of my tongue – The third guess was my best shot;)

Never heard about this word before. Nice to know. Yes, a2020, some people are born one-lines. My favorite one-liners are by Russel Peter. I’m laughing already :)))
