The art and science of funny

Comedyology is the study of the craft of Comedy. Comedy is a communication system for people to make other people realize how stupid some things are. Be they stupid people, places or things. Comedy is usually expressed by Comedians which may be Canadians, individuals, teams or troupes. Animators and illustrators may also qualify as comedians, as their product serves the same purpose. Certainly, Propaganda, pornography and laundry detergent advertisements may be funny, and serve as de facto comedy, but they are not officially comedy.

Internet comedy, called Lulz, was initially just about cats and a few other cute animals. It was introduced in the 1950s, with dogs introduced within a year, after much demand in the UK. It also used the terrestrial internet through ground-based modems. Later, high speed via overhead and/or underground wiring and then 3G were introduced. More recently in the 21st century, lulz has increasingly moved from analog to digital technology.

Who goeth there?

The creation of the knock knock joke can be traced back to England, around 1032, near the end of the "Comedic Dark Age". Many court jesters were losing their popularity around that time; the latest addition of fools (disfigured people rambling like complete idiots) quickly replaced them due to their lower import price. Much like in modern times, the crazy, random, and stupid had beaten the witty, mature, and hard working.

Anyways, two unknown jesters of the period needed some quick cash and thought up the routine known as "Ye Olde Knocke Knocke Joke". The following is a transcript of the joke. It should be noted that many Bothans died to bring us this information.

He was voted as the fifth greatest African-American stand-up comedian of all time by Comedy Central. His comedic subject matter frequently focuses on the cultural values, habits, and struggles of African-Americans.

Despite the few occasions when he has passingly made mention of his ethnicity, there are still those who speculate that Rock may actually be a racist white person in prosthetic makeup.

Rock began doing stand-up comedy in 1985 in New York City'sCatch a Rising Star. His comedic insights and observations onAfrican-American lifestyle saw him rise up the ranks of the comedy circuit in addition to earning bit roles in the African-American parodying film, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka and the semi African-American TV series Miami Vice.
