When it comes to cracking jokes and generally making people laugh, military service gives you a lot of material to work with. Between training, deployments, and everyday life in a military town or on base, there’s no shortage of stupefying and funny anecdotes that give way to a unique brand of comedy: military humor.
Being funny is easy. Telling a funny joke is hard as hell. Don’t believe me? Ask a group of people who the resident comedian is, and ask him or her to tell you a joke. Chances are they will stumble their way through it, earning a few awkward laughs in the process.
