25 Anti-Jokes That Will Leave You Rolling Your Eyes

Posted by , Updated on November 15, 2016


To get started, let’s make sure that we’re all on the same page. An anti-joke by definition is a joke that involves the teller finishing with something that is intentionally not funny or potentially even meaningless. The irony of this is typically what leads to the humor. In other words, the joke is actually the lack of a joke. Now, what exactly qualifies as an anti-joke is somewhat up to the individual. In certain cases, people may even classify anti-jokes under the umbrella of dry humor.

So, for the sake of our list, we are going to maintain a relaxed definition of “anti-joke”. This means that some of the jokes on our list may (at least according to some of you) fall under more direct genres of humor. Having made our disclaimer, let’s now get to the point. For those of you unfamiliar with anti jokes, all you need to know is that they play an important role in pranks and alternative comedy. But enough of the disclaimers and educational background knowledge. These are 25 Anti-Jokes That Will Leave You Rolling Your Eyes!
