Humor is subjective. No matter how funny you think something is, if you say it in a room full of people, not everyone will laugh. (Unless you're me, of course.) There's nothing wrong with them or you, they just might not like what you have to say.
If you don't like the jokes below, either you think they're too nerdy... or you just didn't get them. (That's okay, though.) These intelligent jokes are so clever, most people won't get them on their first (second or third) read-through.
I hope you get them, though.
