Have you heard the good news?

We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

Have you heard the good news?

This joke comes via the stand-up comedian Amy Schumer as related in her memoir The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo.
This old woman on the subway asked me, "Have you heard the good news?" She was trying to save me.

I said, "Ma'am, I'm so sorry. My people are Jewish."

She said, "That's okay, your people just haven't found Jesus yet."

I said, "No, we found him. Maybe you haven't heard the bad news."
